Premier Oregon destination introduces year-round, customizable
wedding fitness program

WELCHES (Mt. HOOD), Ore. – (January 31, 2011) – To help guests look and feel nothing less than their absolute best, The Resort at The Mountain (The Resort), a nature-inspired wedding, spa, golf and ski destination resort nestled on 243 acres less than one hour east of Portland, now offers a transformational weekend of fitness, stress-relieving spa treatments and outdoor adventure for all wedding parties with its new, customizable Bridal Boot Camp program.

Bridal parties will experience the benefits of natural spa and fitness treatments, while also receiving inspiration and expert instruction from highly acclaimed fitness trainer Nate Seifert, as he guides wedding parties in this adventurous occasion. Kick-off the weekend with a sparkling toast and a choice of select spa treatments including massages and facials. Wake-up refreshed and ready to train with personalized workouts, seasonal outdoor group activities, and time for reflection amidst the natural wonders of Mt. Hood. The area surrounding The Resort provides a wealth of relaxing and recreational activities for brides and their wedding parties, including trail running, bike riding, golfing, soccer and ultimate Frisbee. The exciting health and fitness weekend will conclude with a celebratory champagne brunch and a renewed sense of self and togetherness.

“For a bride, her wedding is the event of a lifetime,” said Frank Casarez, general manager of The Resort. “And the very best way to prepare for that extraordinary day is to spend a weekend at bridal boot camp with those closest to you – family, bridesmaids and maybe even the fiancé.”

All spa treatments and workouts are specially tailored to the needs and preferences of the entire wedding party. The Resort offers the bride, maid of honor and bridesmaids targeted plyometrics toning workouts, exciting cardiovascular training, and an intensive routine for toning the stomach area. For the groom, best man and groomsmen, The Resort presents strength and conditioning workouts, intensive interval cardiovascular training, and an iron man abs routine. Together the bride and groom can share invigorating circuit training, defining ab routines, cardiovascular adventures and exploring Mt. Hood.

“Bridal Boot Camp at The Resort at The Mountain will transform your mind and body, allowing your natural beauty to glow on your wedding day,” said Joan Southon, spa director of The Resort. “Alleviate wedding-day stress and let a lifetime of memories begin and blossom with the Bridal Boot Camp program.”
