Start Training for Ultimate Towner!

Our new training page will feature exercises and workout routines from local training facilities designed to get you in shape for the Ultimate Towner!  In the meantime, here are few words from Ultimate Towner’s main man Tuffy to get you started:

Crystal Wright’s Tough Towner Training

These are two examples of some training that will help for the Tough Towner event whether you train with your team or on your own! The big thing about the race is it is more running then you think and then you have to have coordination through obstacles when you are winded. These two examples will help train work capacity, core, agility and quick recovery. Please email to wrighttrain@gmail.com with questions or go to our website www.jhwrighttraining@gmail.com

Rule Number One:

Get out and get after it! Imagine the activities you will be doing, then mimic some of those while you are training. Does the course require some running? Do some running. Does the course require hand over hand monkey bars? Find some. How about climbing over walls? You guessed it… say hello to your neighbors a few times!

Core strength training, cardio, push-ups, pull-ups, hiking up mountains, mountain-biking… stay active and get strong. Fuel your body with healthy food and stay hydrated.
