HIKING FOR FITNESS SERIES


Hiking for fun...and wellness

Dust off the cobwebs from winter and get outside. Explore the amazing views of Banff National Park over 5 weeks while learning how to modify your step to save energy, manage those aches and pains, and stay injury free for the best summer yet. Keep limber by finishing each hike with a physiotherapist-led stretching program. This is the perfect series for anyone planning a backpacking trip this summer or for anyone wanting to improve their healthy lifestyle.

We will start with a beginner friendly hike of 7-10km, with up to 300m of elevation gain. By the end of the program we will be ready to tackle 13-15km, with up to 600m elevation.

Sign up for the hike that fits your schedule, or sign up for all 5 hikes and enjoy a discounted price! Start your summer off on the right foot, stay injury free, and make new friends!

Each week the trail will be chosen based on the groups fitness level. We also avoid trails that people in the group have hiked before. The goal is take you on progressively harder hikes while showing you new areas so that you can go out and explore on your own!
