GEOCACHING! 

What is it you ask?  Well it's a high tech Easter egg hunt.  Someone hides a container of inexpensive knickknacks -- a cache.  Then they post its latitude & longitude on the internet, and other people go hunting for it.  If they find it they trade knickknacks and sign a log to record their visit.

            Pole Walking is a rhythmically, energizing

            form of walking that includes using a specially

            designed pair of walking poles that helps you

            (with less effort) incorporate your entire body

            rather than just your lower body.



 

The Body Bar is a classic fitness tool; a simple, one piece

solid steel, weighted fitness bar encased in high quality

 easy grip rubber for a secure and comfortable grip.

 The body bar can be used in group fitness, personal training,

and physical therapy or at home workouts.



          Bosu trainers are versatile enough to use as

          stretching aids, balance-training equipment,

          rehabilitation equipment and even strength-

          training and plyometric training tools. The Bosu

          is flat on one side so you don't have to worry

          about a Bosu trainer rolling away from you the

          way that stability balls frequently do.


   

A snowshoe is footwear for walking over the snow.

Snowshoes work by distributing the weight of the

person over a larger area so that the person's foot does

not sink completely into the snow, a quality called "floatation".





          TRX resistance cords help to build muscle

          and increase strength.  These cords are great

          for tightening your core and obliques
