This session will be a zoom online presentation.  We will start promptly at 6:30PM on May 14 and the session will go until approximately 8:30PM.

In this online virtual training course you will learn multi-joint hiking specific strength training exercises that you can do in a park or in your home or yard.  After the exercises are taught you will learn about general proper progression for your hiking workouts.  Examples of workouts using the learned exercises will be shown.  For alternate days, the course will also go over hiking specific cardiovascular training.   Both will move you towards your goals of being physically ready for Washington’s many trails when they re-open.

The zoom link to join the meeting will be emailed on the day before the class to everyone who registered for the session.  YOu must register to receive the link.

The modest fee charged for this clinic will be used to help The Mountaineers maintain their staff and adult and youth programs through this difficult time.
