Hiking Conditioning Series

Interested in getting outside after work during the week days and completing conditioning hikes with your fellow NSM members?

Work together to increase your aerobic capacity by gradually increasing the weight you are carrying and the speed / distance you are hiking to get in better summer hiking shape! Doesn’t matter how experienced you are, all are welcome!

Hiking Conditioning Series


Bring a backpack with as many filled water bottles as you want and get ready to hike as fast as you can until you get to the top! It doesn’t matter if you are brand new to hiking or if you are experienced! All are welcome regardless of your speed.

How did you start hiking?

My parents took me on hikes as a kid. I went on my first backpacking trip when I was 5.

Why do you hike?

To get to the top of the mountain.

Favorite hike in Washington:

Hmm.... Probably the Skokomish River valley in the Olympics. It's a hard question though.

Fun fact:

I like rock climbing but think scrambling is scary.
