ELM hosting annual Women’s Spring Hiking series

Eight-week clinic is designed for both novice and intermediate hikers

Equilibrium Lifestyle Management (ELM) is heading into the hills again for their popular Women’s Spring Hiking series.

Starting Tuesday, May 6 this eight-week hiking clinic will get participants ready for a summer of great hiking. The weekly hiking program includes hikes for both novice and intermediate hikers looking to improve their hiking fitness and discover new hiking trails.

The novice program is designed for new hikers who would like to increase their endurance and hiking ability on the trails. No hiking experience is necessary to join the beginner group, however participants should be comfortable walking for 45-60 minutes prior to beginning the clinic.

The intermediate program is geared for hikers with more experience under their boots. Participants in this group must be able to hike comfortably for two hours over varied terrain prior to beginning the clinic. Participants will train with multi-day packs on varied terrain to increase strength, endurance and hill climbing stamina.

ELM hiking clinics are lead by experienced female hikers and certified fitness instructors who are excited to share their favourite trails around the Comox Valley. During the clinic participants will learn about hiking safety, map reading and navigation, hydration, nutrition, and injury prevention.

Go to www.elmhealth.com for more information and to register before the May 2 deadline.
