PATHFINDER Life - Maintenance Training
Class 027 registrations are open through midnight Sunday, Feb. 28 Eastern. If you'd like to register after that date please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Get some consistency in your training if you're new to rucking, or slow down the pace for an off-season training plan. We don't do day-by-day workout plans because they don't work! 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 your life.
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.
PATHFINDER Life is flexible to meet your needs and works perfectly as a year-round program.
- Individuals who are just beginning their fitness journey
- Individuals moving into a training "off-season" or maintenance program
- 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 returning from injury or medical absence with a doctor's approval
