Welcome to Las Vegas Adventure Fitness Meetup Group!
Striving to make this a supportive meetup accessible to everyone who is interested in developing and maintaining fitness while playing in the outdoors. If you're like me, going to the gym regularly may not be very interesting to you. We have a wonderful opportunity to do everything from hiking, biking, climbing, kayaking and more here in Las Vegas. Let's take advantage of it!
So what makes us different from other meetups?
The first goal is to focus on using our activities for fitness. Yes, we want to have fun hiking, biking, kayaking, climbing, etc., but we also want to take it beyond the recreational pace of many of the other great meetup groups already out there. Often this may mean that we have a distance or time we want to push toward finishing, or we may make it a multi-activity meetup. We may also include some resistance activities in addition to our cardio.
Our second focus is teamwork - to create a supportive, team oriented environment for everyone to reach their fitness goals, whatever your current level. If you're just getting started in your fitness routine you may be concerned that you aren't fit enough or fast enough or experienced enough. Don't worry - you won't slow folks down! If you're used to a very active lifestyle, you may be wondering if you will be able to push your physical limits. Don't worry - you won't have to hold yourself back! Whether you fall on either end of the spectrum or somewhere in between, come check out one of our meetups and you'll see what it's all about!
Our third area of focus for those who are interested is adventure racing. Why adventure racing? Simply because it is a great test of fitness and teamwork in the adventurous outdoors - the elements that our groups is about. So, what is adventure racing? For those who don't know, adventure racing is a multi-sport team event (often including trail running, mt. biking, kayaking, swimming, navigation, orienteering and more). Adventure races come in all shapes and sizes to challenge physical, mental and team acuity. Whether you are in it to win or just to have fun and finish, it's a great experience. There are several coming up next year for any who are interested. We will have some meetups geared toward these adventure races. You don't have to race to join in these meetups. Just come try out something new and have some fun while you're at it!
See ya soon!
