Welcome Paddlers! In this course you will be provided with the fitness aspects required to be prepared for your next water season or team testing.
Majority of the workouts range from 30-45 minutes maximum. The goal is to train consistently and in keeping in this time frame it should be easy to incorporate a 5 or 6 day training week.
NOTE: This is a sport specific training program where the weight training, core and cardio are progressive. This means there is a consistent build that happens over a 7 month period. Please do the workouts as laid out. Plan your training to make a routine that incorporates strength and cardio if you will be fitness testing! What is NOT progressive is the holistic physio. This is done to support our training and is an essential component to add in to avoid injury. We aim to prevent injury as we increase in strength.
The workouts are laid out in an order to build good training habits that will stick with you long term. Our instructors want you to succeed and are dedicated to providing workouts that get you results. The principle we are working with is maximum results by doing quality, sport specific work.
Congratulations for taking this step and we look forward to hearing of your success!
