Descriptions of each of the sessions

Tuesday/Thursday 90 - minute training sessions:

Tues_Thurs 90 min training sessions photo

The weekly 90-minute sessions start out with a hiking specific warm-up that includes stick rolling, a 5-10 minute walk, simple glute strengthening exercises, and dynamic stretches. We then begin the "workout" where we intermix hiking with exercises that specifically train the muscles you will utilize on the trail and will help to improve your mobility, stability, and strength. Another part of our workout includes interval hill training to help increase your cardiovascular endurance for those long climbs on your treks. This portion is done at your own pace as everyone walks at different speeds. The session ends with a cool down that includes a relaxed 5-10 minute walk back to where we started and static stretches to help improve flexibility and help prevent injuries. Rest assured that at anytime during the session, if an exercise is taught that you do not feel comfortable doing or you know that you should not do, than Sheri will help you find an exercise that suits your comfort level or your needs, or you can opt to rest as well.

Wednesday 2 - Hour Hikes:

Wednesday mornings will find us rotating parks. After stick rolling and some dynamic stretches for a proper injury prevention warm-up, we will start our 2- hour hike in the park of the week. These mornings will be more about improving our muscular endurance through walking more miles than we do on Tuesday’s and Thursday’s. At the end of our session we will cool down via static stretching and stick rolling.

Bi-Monthly 3 - Hour Hikes:

3-Hour Group hikes

Theses hikes will be about 3-hours in length on various trails near Seattle. Most trails we go to will be off of the I-90 corridor. Sometimes these hikes do go over the 3-hour time frame, all depends on the group and the condition of the trail. When there is too much snow or ice on the trails we stay closer to home and do our training hikes at local parks such as Saint Edwards State Park, Discovery Park or Carkeek Park- all great for longer hikes.

Why should I sign up?

The best way to train for an outdoor adventure is in the outdoors!  This way your feet, ankles, knees and hips will gain stability and strength on the uneven surfaces that you will face on the trails. You won't even realize you are working out when you incorporate trek specific strength training as we hike.  These outdoor sessions will help you feel amazing on your next trekking adventure! And when you are well prepared you will help reduce the possibility of an over-use injury that could bring your trek to a quick end.

By joining, you will become part of the growing trekking community and gain new friends meeting people that feel the same calling as you… to explore the world by foot. You may even find your next perfect trekking travel buddy!

This outdoor group trek training program will:

  • Inspire and motivate you to train - rain, shine, sleet or snow!
  • Reacquaint you with your local parks and teach you various ways to train in the great outdoors.
  • Allow you to meet new friends, hiking partners, adventure travel partners and more.
  • Provide that place to come back to after your journey, where people get you, and truly do want to hear about your life changing trekking adventure.
