The purpose of PATHFINDER Life is to maintain a focus on overall fitness, with rucking miles as a core pillar, but now with even more flexible options that include other fitness disciplines with a shift into a less intense effort and more, and different, options for fun and movement.
PATHFINDER Life is suitable as a general training plan over a long-term and provides a consistent level of approachable fitness that adapts to shifts in fitness focus, maintenance training, returning from injury or illness recovery, postpartum and more.
- Individuals moving into a training "off season" or maintenance program
- Individuals who are returning postpartum, from injury, or from illness, with a doctor's approval
- Individuals interested in rucking as fitness but have other current fitness goals or hobbies and seek a flexible, lower-commitment entry point
- Individuals who are just beginning their fitness journey
- None, but it is suggested that you already have the discipline to maintain regular fitness activity two to four times per week.
