Female Uphill Athlete Training Group
Training begins May 9, 2023
How far could we go? Quite far, if we go together.
The Female Uphill Athlete Training Group engages your body and mind in a powerful way that will lead you to question your belief systems about what you can and cannot accomplish.
None of us are lone rangers, we are all connected. When we open ourselves up to this connection, profound transformation can occur. We can then hold ourselves accountable and push ourselves to the next level of our understanding of our own limits.
The Female Uphill Athlete Training Groups are about joining a community of like-minded women who are curious to take their training to the next level and support you on your journey.
The guidance of the coaches was invaluable. Through their "in the weeds" answers to our questions, I learned to understand my body’s responses to training, hormones, nutrition, hydration, environmental factors, life stressors—and how they combine and interact in their effects on my physiology (and at times psychology). Along with my strength and base fitness, my understanding of the UA methodology and of how to train increased exponentially.
The Female Uphill Athlete Training Group is what women are looking for if you need an endurance and strength program that is challenging AND accepting. The training programs can be tailored to the training hours you can commit, while the coaches have meaningful discussions about training as a woman in the modern era. Feel uncomfortable in the gym? They empower you. Feel uncertain about nutrition? They guide you with the expertise of a dietician. Need a reliable plan to help improve your endurance over time? They structure your workouts to achieve your goals and add variety to the different types of endurance training. This being my first experience in preparation for K2 base camp trek, I will definitely be joining again in the future.
It's week six of my 12-week training program with Uphill Athlete. I’ve shared the workouts, which are fun, challenging, [and]exhausting, but I haven’t shared what it’s like to train with a group of like-minded females worldwide. When I joined, I didn’t think of that aspect. I wanted to be held accountable and thought the group would help with my training motivation, but it reawakened the need for female camaraderie. I used to make more time for going on an adventure with my female friends, but much less since the pandemic started. I got out of the routine, and this group has made me realize how much I miss it. So, in addition to accountability, which has gotten me in better shape in the last six weeks, I have found inspiration from the amazing women in this group.
