More Than a Weight Loss Program for Women

If you’ve tried every diet, read all the books, attended weight loss camps and fat farms, lost and regained weight, only to end up afraid to hope for real solutions, consider the possibility of real, meaningful change at Green Mountain at Fox Run.

Green Mountain at Fox Run is the nation’s oldest retreat exclusively for women who struggle with weight, emotional and binge eating, and feelings of food addiction. Our pioneering non-diet strategies help women end the yo-yo cycle of weight loss and regain by focusing on an integrated health approach that incorporates nutrition, fitness, and behavior/emotional health.

A Time-Tested Approach for Ending Eating & Weight Struggles and Improving Wellness

Women have come to Green Mountain for 45 years to lose weight through our unique non-diet approach. They’ve left with new attitudes and behaviors that focus on discovering the real reasons for eating and weight struggles and ways to end them. Unlike the typical approach you’ll find in a weight loss program for women, here you’ll focus on creating lasting change and a deep sense of well-being for body AND mind. Through powerful tools such as mindfulness techniques, stress reduction skills, and movement that is customized to your fitness level and body size, you’ll learn to practice self-care in your daily life for sustainable success in improving your health and well-being long after you leave our retreat.
