UAE Trekkers offers specific training sessions to get in shape for what we do- get out to the mountains of UAE, Oman and beyond. The beauty of our training sessions is that they are not specific to one type of sport or activity, or one level of fitness, or one body type. We are inclusive and welcoming of everyone from beginners who want to get back in shape, or people that just want a change to their normal workout routine. We will offer everything from interval training to stair climbing, as well as swimming sessions (pre- triathletes) and our famous Spartan workout sessions. We will also be offering specific training for the events that are on offer during the good weather months of the year including triathlons, marathons and Desert Warrior or Spartan race - type events. There is another difference with our training sessions as well - all of the money that is paid for training goes to benefit Nepal. There are no refunds for training events so you will need to consider your RSVP carefully. If you don't show up, you have just made a 35 dh donation.
If you want to trek with us, check out the UAE Trekkers meetup. That site will be exclusively for hikes and international trips. But the range of training activities will now be posted here, on the Trekker Training meetup.
We will offer introductory sessions of all of our training activities. However, after there is a 'core' of attendees that come regularly to the session, we will start charging 10 dollars per session, paid in advance through the RSVP paypal site. However.....
None of these monies go to UAE Trekkers or their trainers for profit in any way. All of the trainers donate their time, and the money that you pay to RSVP will go directly, 100% to Nepal.
The money is sent on a monthly basis directly via paypal. This way the actual money is never touched by us here in the UAE, its all handled online, and your training directly continues to benefit people in Nepal.
We think its a great way to continue to support our friends and the people of Nepal. Its also a more efficient way to conduct training sessions, where people need to RSVP and pay in advance to demonstrate their committment to attending.
We hope you agree that this is a new and effective and beneficial way to offer you training sessions.
