PATHFINDER Life - Beginner & Maintenance Training

Regular price $29.99 Sale


Get some consistency in your training if you're new to rucking, or slow down the pace for an off-season training plan. PATHFINDER works because YOU build it. We give you the requirements - miles, workouts, and Challenges - and you fit them into your calendar based on what works for YOU. Along the way, you'll get involved in our incredible community, meet inspiring mentors who are there to help if you need it, and all the tools to start on your path to rucking for life. PATHFINDER isn't a day-by-day workout plan ... because they don't work! Instead, build up your discipline and motivation through the guidance and support of the PATHFINDER team. We give you all the tools - you build them for your success.

PATHFINDER Life is perfect for all kinds of fitness needs - whether you are new to rucking or are returning after some time away.

Our PATHFINDER Life focus is on overall fitness, with rucking miles as a core pillar and flexible options that include other fitness disciplines. We have Challenges in PATHFINDER Life that test you, but don’t deplete you. We encourage workouts, but across a broad range of options that free you up to explore new things and enjoy working out!

After a PATHFINDER Life 90-day program, you’ll feel strong, refreshed, and ready to take on whatever comes next.
