Get strong & have as much fun as possible this summer!
Six weeks (or a whole summer) of online workouts designed to help you get strong so you can enjoy all the adventures that summer has in store.
Calling all hikers, bikers, boaters, runners, & stroller-pushers
If you're looking forward to summer -- even though the pandemic might mean it's a different kind of summer than we'd hoped -- you can bet it'll be better if you're strong and resilient. And Summer Strong will help get you there.
Build functional strength (the kind you need to do the funky things that being outside demands!) so you can have as much fun as possible this summer.
Prevent injuries, increase balance & mobility, and have an easier time keeping up with your friends!
Efficient and engaging bodyweight workouts designed to keep your body challenged, your mind growing, and build the kind of strength you need for your outdoor adventures.
- 35-45 minute workouts
- Train three days/week
- Three six-week periodized training rounds (see visual below) that progress through the summer
- Start training on the June 8 training cycle & complete two rounds by end of summer
I have noticed significant strength gains both physically and mentally. I am better equipped to continue moving (skiing, biking, etc.) when I become fatigued; thanks to training with Sarah!
These workouts have helped me feel stronger, less injury-prone, and better prepared to handle whatever the mountains decide to dish out. I also love that they're time efficient, so that when life happens, I know I'm not falling behind with my athletic goals.

It is rare to find such great explanations and details, which is especially helpful when trying new exercises.
I’m excited and encouraged to see how strong I am getting. I’ve worked out consistently in gym classes for the last 15 years, but this program took me to the next level.
This program was just I needed to achieve my goal of finishing a 100 mile endurance race. I became stronger both mentally and physically - this program has it all! Between the challenging, but fun workouts, incredible online community and fabulous resources, I came out the other side a stronger, healthier person!

Financial support for those who need it
If finances are a concern for you right now, please consider utilizing the Sistering Support we have in place for you this year.
"Sistering" is a construction term in which a post that's holding up too much weight is supported by additional posts on either side. This metaphor conveys what we're after: helping take some of the weight off those who are carrying a lot right now.
Especially for those impacted by COVID19 -- this is for YOU! Not charity, but in solidarity with you in these hard times.
Apply for Sistering Support here (2 min application) Application deadline for the June 8 training cycle is Saturday 6/6/20
