Trail running is not only an excellent way to switch up your usual fitness routine, but also a sport with a knowledgeable and supportive following. Trail Running Canada is a great resource for runners of all fitness levels.
Many trails runners have increased the time they spend in the gym focusing on a variety of muscle groups. Kettlebells, TRX, and other functional training can have a profound impact on your trail running performance. Make an appointment with a member of Steve Nash’s certified Personal Training team to learn more about incorporating functional training into your routine.
- Many trails take you into areas without cell phone coverage. It is best practice to never run alone and to bring extra clothing and food.
- Always have someone you check in with before and after your run.
- Carry a map and if you are new to trail. See if there is someone who can take you until you are familiar with the route.
