Travel the Trail!
New Group starting in SEPTEMBER! Registration open August 1st!
Have you ever wanted to travel the Appalachian Trail but felt that it's impossible because of time restraints and level of difficulty? Well now is your opportunity to blaze a virtual trail at the Y.
Log your daily workouts and we will help you track your mileage. Walk, jog, run, bike, play, take classes, or lift weights, it all counts. We will track everyone's mileage on a map of the Appalachian Trail. Compete against another team, individual or compete against your personal best each month. Teams will be set up by the director. Each team will be assigned a team leader (personal trainer).
Healthy Living is a lifestyle, so this program is designed to take at least 12-16 months or more for most individuals. Team leaders are available to help you create a strategy/plan. Complete this trail and form a new healthy habit that's going to have a lasting impact.
We modified the distances for various activities. This is how it works:
* 1 mile in the pool (64 lengths or 32 laps) = 2 miles on the trail
* 1 mile on a bike = .5 miles on the trail
* 1 mile on the elliptical = 1.5 miles on the trail
* 1 mile walking/jogging/running = 1 mile on the trail
* 1 mile on the summit trainer = 1.5 miles on the trail
* 1000 meters on the rowing machine = 1 mile on the trail
* 2500 steps Climbing stairs or Stair Climber machine = 1 mile on the trail.
* 30 minutes of weight training = 1 mile on the trail.
* 30 minutes of Sports/Recreational activities = high intensity (2 miles), low intensity (1 mile) on the trail.
* Group X
o Cardio based class = 2 miles on the trail.
