 Fall Dryland Starts Has Started!
 

Due to strong interest we have started Dryland training early this year, to keep us going from the summer to fall transition, to make us a stronger club, and to make us all the fitter than ever for this ski season.  Coaches Dave, Jamie, and Tony are once again leading some gut busting, tricep tightening sessions to help prepare you for ski season.  These two hour sessions are self paced, so if you can't run, that's okay, just walk real fast.  The first session is at the last parking lot of Spanish Banks, (the most westerly) at 9:30a.m.  The next week will be on the North Shore at the Capilano Fish Hatchery.  Bring a set of poles, appropriate footwear and clothing.   Dave, Jamie, or Tony will work you hard, rain or shine.  Email Dave here with any questions.

   

Non-members are welcome to try out two sessions, but must print and sign a waiver FIRST. Give the waiver to the coach on your first session.  Non-members who wish to continue the training beyond two sessions must become a member.    Existing members must renew their membership by Oct. 15th if they wish to continue with the program.

 

These sessions are free to members. Renew or start your NR membership HERE today so we don't waste your time with paperwork! 


See you there!
