No matter where you live, you can get fit and healthy in the great outdoors. When most people think of getting in shape, they think of gym memberships-treadmills, StairMaster machines, rooms crammed full of equipment and sweaty people. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a workout that was a breath of fresh air instead?
In FIT BY NATURE, John Colver lays out his flagship 12 week outdoor training program- a regimen that requires nothing more than outdoor space and a little inspiration.
FIT BY NATURE covers fitness basics such as nutrition, injury prevention, goal setting, and gear lists. With weekly charts and day-by-day descriptions, this book will push you to a new fitness level, whether you run up your neighborhood stairs, jump over logs on a nearby trail, swim laps at your local aquatic park, or simply do stretches in your own backyard.
Featured sections include a compendium of all core exercises, sport specific circuit training, and an AdventX On-Target Fitness Evaluation.
John Colver is an athletic coach, mountain guide, and former competitive cyclist. A recipient of Seattle Magazine’s Best Outdoor Fitness Program, and a King-5 TV Best of Washington Personal Trainer Top 5 Award, he founded AdventX, an outdoor fitness training company, in 2003.
