Get Outside Your Comfort Zone.
Dreading the indoor cycling trainer…. treadmill….and missing the outdoors during your winter base training?
As the weather starts to turn colder and most of us are recovering from our race season, coaches and sports physiologists agree that the “off months” are a good time to work on muscular and cardiovascular endurance while protecting joints and tendons. What this means is longer, slower and less intense workouts. This is what’s known as the critical, distance or aerobic phase of our training routine.
Adventure Racing puts together all of the disciplines that we thrive on particpating in, adds in some new ones and does it all in the unique setting of the outdoor environment local to us here in Piermont.
Like anything else we do, it’s an assembly of the best of the best. This 12 week program will be led by some the best Adventure Racing people in the game, it will headed by Rodney Villella from the New York Adventure Racing Association and his teammates. Rodney has been an integral part of NYARA as both a racer and race director. Along with Amy Bartoletti, they have directed NYARA’s Longest Day since 2008 and most notably, the 2012 USARA National Championships. In 2003, Rodney competed in the Eco Challenge North American Championships as part of Team HYPE. Since then, he has participated in countless races of all lengths from sprints to 10-Day expeditions.
This program will not only be a perfect compliment to your regular off season training but will also prove to be some of the most fun and challenging training that you will have the opportunity to participate in. We are proud to bring such a unique offering to the area and we know that it’s something everyone will be talking about.
The Recovery Adventure Racing package will be an awesome two hour training session followed by a 60 minute Recovery boot compression session: $150 per month.
