So you frequent the trails,
but want to...
hike and run further with minimal stops,
feel more stable in your footings,
have more control on the descent,
carry a heavier pack with more ease,
and, ultimately, feel more confident in your abilities.
Welcome to KATHLETICS Trail
Hiking and trail running require strength, stability, and endurance built on and off the trail.
KATHLETICS Trail is a templated training program organized to build muscle and strength in the off-season (late fall-early spring) and power and endurance in the in-season (late spring-early fall).
Each week offers three ~45 min resistance training workouts, four 20-90 min cardio sessions, and one 90+ min weekend adventure. The strength training workouts are full body (Push, Push/Pull, and Pull), so regardless of if you lift 1, 2, or 3x/week, you will address all muscle groups throughout the week. The strength training workouts are structured to provide progress week-after-week while also allowing the opportunity to be recovered for your other strength and endurance sessions.
The cardiovascular workouts are structured to allow for cardiovascular and muscular endurance adaptations. We train based on RPE (rate of perceived exertion) and heart rate zones so you can have phases of building your aerobic base and increasing your endurance.
KATHLETICS Trail gives you the tools to tailor your training program to you, your goals, your training availability, and your abilities.
KATHLETICS Trail program provides you clarity to help you gain strength for all of your outdoor adventures.
Regardless of season, this program will keep you type-2-fun-ready year-round.

What people are saying
Now most days I look forward to moving my body rather than it being a chore.

It was so nice to have a workout that I “had” to do. Felt so much better afterwards.
