No detail has been spared at the new Spa & Sports Club at the Stoweflake Mountain Resort & Spa, Stowe, Vermont. In response to the growing number of discerning travelers seeking both an active, healthy vacation and a soothing, relaxing getaway, the Spa & Sports Club offers a setting where fitness and relaxation go hand in hand.
The Spa & Sports Club is part of the Stoweflake`s multi-million dollar expansion and one of only a few, select “boutique” spa and fitness centers gaining favor around the country. Boutiques spas concentrate on quality, top-of-the line fitness facilities and equipment, life-enriching programs, and a variety of nurturing and energizing treatments. Settings are intimate with special emphasis on personal attention.
The Stoweflake Mountain Resort & Spa`s new facilities include an exercise room with a fully equipped Cybex Circuit and aerobic equipment, indoor pool, racquetball/squash court, sauna, steam room, Jacuzzi, massage and energy work suites, and locker rooms. Certified Trainers are available for personal evaluation and guests have access to an on-site Sports Therapy Center.
According to Chuck Baraw, President of the Stoweflake Mountain Resort & Spa, “We designed the Spa & Sports Club to incorporate the best features from some of the finest spas and fitness centers in the country. Our physical plant may not be as large as some of the better known spas, but we match or exceed them in quality of service and facilities. We`re excited about offering guests spa treatments and fitness programs on a year-round basis.
Many of our fitness programs tie in with the outdoor recreational opportunities Vermont offers. ” Hiking, mountain biking, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and in-line skating are among the numerous outdoor activities offered on a seasonal basis. Thirty spa, salon and energy treatments, personal fitness services, and a full schedule of fitness classes - ranging from Yoga and Cardio Kickboxing to Spinning and Body Sculpting - are offered. Massage methods, including Swedish, Deep Tissue, Maternity, and Aromatherapy, are provided by a team of specialized massage therapists. Salt loofas, herbal and seaweed wraps, and clay body masques are among the spa treatments.
The Stoweflake Spa & Sports Club was the first Vermont establishment approved to practice the innovative and powerful healing technique of LaStone Therapy, a hot and cold stone massage. The goal of LaStone Therapy is to open up the energy channels of the body to facilitate self-healing and body-mind awareness. By combining Swedish massage with hot and cold stones, the circulatory system is stimulated and relaxed, a sensation known as “vascular gymnastics.” The stones are the medium while the hot and cold temperatures provide the message.
So whether experiencing an invigorating workout or a soothing wrap, energy work or body toning, travelers who appreciate impeccable service and personalized attention will enjoy the Stoweflake Spa & Sports Club “where fitness and relaxation go hand in hand.”
