The Adventx Twelve-week Outdoor Fitness ProgramBook - 2011
When most people think of getting in shape, they immediately think of gym memberships, treadmills, stairmaster machines, rooms crammed full with both equipment and people. Sometimes it makes you think, "Wouldn't it be nice to have a workout that was a breath of fresh air?"That's exactly what John Colver, the award-winning founder of Seattle-based training company AdventX, has been teaching for nearly a decade. In The Nature of Fitness, he lays out his flagship 12-week outdoor trainingprogram-a regimen that requires nothing more than outdoor space. Starting from the basics such as nutrition, seasonal advice, and injury prevention, to how to make outdoor fitness a part of your lifestyle-with suggestions on goal-setting, gear lists, and staying inspired-John leads you into his 12-week program. With daily charts and detailed day-by-day descriptions, this book will have you pushing to a new fitness level by running up your neighborhood stairs, doing laps at your local aquaticpark, and even just doing stretches in your own backyard. Appendices include a compendium of all exercises, sport-specific circuit training, and an AdventX On-Target Fitness Evaluation.Forget the gym. Go outside. Not only will you get in the best shape of your life, but you might even enjoy the experience.
