While the winter snowpack has yet to give way to dirt trails, green grass, or wildflowers (at least in NW Montana), springtime is still a wonderful time to get out and put some training miles and elevation on your legs. If you have summer plans that involve hiking, I’d encourage you to harness the excitement of spring (like we did in the video below) and start your training — so that you’ll be confident, fit for the trail, and ready for all the adventures you want to do!
If you haven’t already, I invite you to check out my blog series discussing various components of hiking fitness. Learn the importance of incorporating a combination of cardio, strength, stability, and mobility workouts into your training — It’s KEY to achieving your full hiking potential and minimizing the risk of injury on the trail!
I’ve taken my love of hiking, first-hand experiences, and knowledge as a certified personal trainer to create the HIKE-ABILITY Training Program. Check out a little “sneak peak” below to get an idea of what’s included in the program.
Don’t wait… the best time to start training is NOW!
- Are you looking to make this year your BEST hiking year yet? (Hello “bucket-list” hike!)
- Don’t know where to start, what to do, or how to EFFECTIVELY train for hiking?
- Or maybe you just need some MOTIVATION or help with planning a consistent workout routine.
Increase your “hike-ability” — at any age and level of fitness!
The condition of being confident, capable, and fit for the trail;
The state of being resilient, physically and mentally prepared, and ready for adventure;
Possessing the knowledge and skills that expand and enhance one’s hiking experience.
