Stowe, VT – Stoweflake Mountain Resort & Spa, the AAA Four Diamond world-class resort is the first Nordic Walking Certification Center launced in the Northeast. For nearly ten years, Stoweflake has been the Nordic Walking industry leader, successfully introducing this ground breaking, fitness technique to the region.
Nordic Walking employs the use of ergonomically designed poles that assist in balance and movement during exercise. The poles are specificially designed for all terrains and seasons, making it a year-round activity perfect for fitness enthusiasts of any level. Incorporating the use of the Nordic Walking poles during trail hiking, walking or snowshoeing immediately increases caloric burn, helps create long lean muscle in the upper body and reduces stress on joints.
Nordic Walking was introduced to the resort by Master Trainer Chad Couto. Couto is one of the original Nordic Walking Master Trainers in the Northeast and has certified more than 35 percent of the current Nordic Walking instructors in New England.
The resort currently offers a variety of Nordic Walking classes on its fitness schedule available throughout the week. The Nordic Walking Adventure is a class offered on a seasonal basis that utilizes the scenic locations taking guests on hikes that meander the beautiful Green Mountain trails.
