Fitness Classes

ATA offers a daily morning stretch class pre and post hiking the best trails in the state followed by excursions to Vermont's quaint villages.  After hiking, guests can recieve a upper body work out kayaking or unwind with a late afternoon a la carte activity. Depending on demand a yoga and water aerobics classes are offered. We also offer personal trainers sessions a la carte for those guests seeking an additional work out. Last minute requests may not be fulfilled and some classes, etcetera require a minimum of 2 to 3 guests. Please book or inquire about an a la carte fitness class in advance.

 

ATA's owner is engaged daily with the guests encouraging them to get out of the fitness classrooms and go hiking.  Why would you come to Vermont or to any spa elsewhere and spend your time exercising indoors in a closed room when you could be outdoors obtaining the same results while exploring mother nature?

Morning Stretch

A relaxing way to start the day, learn how to warm up and stretch head-to-toe using opposing muscle groups to stretch and increase range of motion while decreasing the likelihood of soreness and injury. Re-educating your muscles to not get tight and sore in the first place. Each class introduces several techniques that you can easily use at work and home. 

Hiking

Our core activity here at A.T. Adventures we customize our hikes so guests can travel as short and long as they would to hike that day. We offer novice to advanced hikes daily, see our hiking program page for me information.

Kayaking

Post hike guests have the option of flat water kayaking adventure. It is a great way to get an upper body work out after a morning hike.

Yoga Classes

ATA's classes are taught in a fun, loving, nurturing environment catering to a variety of levels from novice to advanced students. After a hiking yoga is a relaxing way to end the day. Yoga, often translated as union, is a process of self-inquiry that begins with experiencing the connection between body and mind and leads to the discovery of your true nature. Please book or inquire about an a la carte fitness class in advance. PLEASE NOTE IN 2012 ATAS YOGA ROOM IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION, THIS WE HAVE ALTERNATIVE LOCATIONS AROUND THE INN.

 

s6.jpgYoga is a 5,000 year-old system of self-development. The heart of yogic teachings lies in the belief that a self-fulfilled person is a healthy person, free from disease caused by stress and improper living habits. The practice of yoga is designed to lead the student to ever-increasing knowledge of his or her self and the needs of the body, emotions and mind in order to achieve and maintain good physical, emotional and mental health and spiritual harmony. Yoga, in short, is a science of self-development that deals with the whole human being.

bootcamp. .jpgBoot Camp Classes

Offered A la carte this total body workout combines high intensity bursts of cardiovascular exercise with intervals of isolated strength training. Instead of focusing on weight loss or fat burning specifically the focus is on building strength and working multiple muscles intensely. This unique formula, combined with the outdoor setting and the personal attention from the instructor creates an intense and effective workout.

 

wtr2.jpgWater Aerobics Classes

Offered during busy times or à la carte. ATA's classes are just plain great, using weights, actually running, jogging and stepping in the water. While no single exercise is perfect for everyone, Water Aerobics comes close by conforming to individual needs, restrictions, and abilities. By adjusting the size and speed of your movements, you can change the level of exertion to suit your needs. It allows a person to exercise every muscle and every joint in the body all at the same time. Another benefit of water aerobics is that you can do it, no matter your age. The reason for this is because the water causes your body to be buoyant, thus causing less stress on your joints and muscles. It provides a great deal of resistance in all directions for your muscles to work against.
