Details

The name of the event says it all, we climb stairs for a great lower body exercise. This event comes around every other Sunday( 2nd and last Sunday) of every month and it is for all fitness levels. We start with a warm-up drill where we climb for about 4-5 minutes using different leg variations to get blood flowing. Then we go freestyle for about 30-45 mins. Freestyle here means running up the stairs, walking, jogging, crawling, squad-jumping, frog-jumping,.... however you want to do it as long as you're climbing up the stairs.

You'll probably get sore afterwards if you haven't done a stair workout before or it has been a while since you did one but don't let that stop you. Your body will adapt pretty fast if you do it consistently.

Strong, powerful, legs/lower-body, burn serious calories, get your heart-rate up-- all in 30-45 mins

From the bottom(Lakeview Boulevard) to the top(10th Ave E), there are 13 flights of stairs that gives you a total of 282 steps.
