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?
FIT BY NATURE, lays out the adventx 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.
Central to the enormous and ongoing success shared by FIT BY NATURE's devotees, is the adherence to the philosophy of Challenge by Choice. This "puts all the power in your hands to decide how much you want to push yourself on a given day." "The key is to pay attention to what your body tells you on that day. In time, your body will adapt and crave more movement. The bottom line is this: you can always trust your own body."
What a brilliant and novel practice, all laid out for you, step by step, diagram by photo. But don't take our word for it. Read the book; join or start a group; make a commitment to you. It's your turn now.
