WHAT YOU NEED FOR YOUR FIRST DAY
1) SET OF HAND WEIGHTS
– Please bring two 5# weights for women and 2 10# weights for men – Hexagon weights are ideal as they keep from rolling away or slipping while balancing during some exercises.
2) A MAT
– All newcomers receive a free mat with their first tour – we sell additional mats for $25 or you are welcome to bring your own. We use the mats on several hard surfaces such as cement, dirt, rocks etc. so the thicker the better.
3) APPROPRIATE SHOES
– We do a fair amount of running and/or brisk walking, planks, push-ups, burpees and exercises of that nature that require a sturdy toe box so we recommend a cross-trainer style running shoe. There are several great running shoe stores nearby. The following two we highly recommend: Foot Pursuit in Simi Valley and Road Runner Sports of Newbury Park. Both have excellent knowledge on the appropriate shoes suitable for outdoor fitness and provide a free GAIT analysis to ensure you have a good fit/proper pair of shoes.
4) APPROPRIATE CLOTHING
– It’s best to wear clothing that isn’t too tight so you can move freely. Summer is ideal for lighter colors to help keep you cooler while darker colors trap light and are better for the winter as they help you keep warm. We encourage bright colors especially on the trails or when it isn’t light out to keep our participants visible and safe. Hats are a great option for sun protection and head coverings can keep you warmer in the winter months. You are going to sweat, so you may be more comfortable in material that soaks up wetness. Try a synthetic, like polypropylene or synthetic blends. Cotton may be less comfortable especially in colder conditions because it stays wet longer.
For the ladies please make sure you have a supportive sports bra which can help protect your breasts and keep them from bouncing painfully while exercising. Try on a few to see which style you prefer. If you need help finding the right fit, ask for help in a department store or at one of the shoes stores listed above as they have several great styles to choose from.
