Trailside Wellness on the Hawk Trail — Video Series

February 20, 2024

In this video series that takes place on the Hawk Trail, we focus on toning our muscles and working on aerobics. A warmup helps to move and strengthen joints before we introduce the RPE (Rate of Perceived Exertion) scale. These exercises focus on overall wellness and upping your stability and balance. The great thing about the Hawk Trail is the number of natural props like trees, rocks, and stumps, that lend themselves perfectly to these exercises.
