Fall Dryland Training
Free for members and open to all levels.
For those who have never tried it, “dryland training” is simply training in the off-season. It combines many elements, including strength, endurance, balance, and ski-specific activities. It’s the perfect way to get in shape for the ski season, and is ideal for developing or maintaining general fitness (the perfect complement to a weekend hike or bike ride). Dryland sessions include running, intervals, hill climbs, plyometrics (jump training) and exercises to increase strength and balance. Workouts are self-paced and can be tailored to your own fitness level. You don’t have to be super-fit (you should be able to run at least 2 km comfortably), and no equipment is needed except for ski poles (downhill-length poles are best).
Coach Dave leads 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. Fall sessions are at the most westerly parking lot of Spanish Banks (see map below), or on the North Shore at the Capilano Fish Hatchery parking lot by Second Canyon Trail (see map below). Bring a set of poles, appropriate footwear and clothing. Dave will work you hard, rain or shine.
Non-members are welcome to try out one session, but must print and sign a waiver. Give the waiver to the coach on your first session.
No registration required. Just come out and have some fun.
