Training and Fitness for Backcountry Travel

  • Golds Gym Northland

    5111 Northland Drive NW, Calgary, AB (map)

    51.099487 -114.143097

  • What:

    I thought it would be beneficial to have a session about fitness and training for Backcountry travel. A regular fitness routine will improve your time in the backcountry by reducing injury, improving fitness level, improved energy. Don't just be a weekend warrior and grind out the trip. Get in shape when you are not in the backcountry.

    Gold's Gym offered to do a information session as follows:

    7-7:20 Chat about the benefits of fitness throughout the year, basic nutrition and exercise requirements, take questions

    7:20-7:30: 10 minute walk through the gym and go over various types of equipment and the benefits

    7:30-7:45: mini workout (intro to a group class)

    They will have week passes available as well as sign up sheets for a New Year Boot camp and 1 free personal training assessment passes.

      Already training for the Spartan Race??? :p Would love to join (yeah, right) but between 5-6 is the worst to get into a car and leave downtown so will be happy to get there by 6:45. But look forward to seeing you!
