    I have never wanted to work out INSIDE in a gym so I just hike and trail run to stay in shape. Just got back from the Dacks with Baxter where we tried to do the entire great range with full packs. This will get you in shape and you won't have a choice. After having to bail due to weather we hitched a ride up to A.D.K. Loge and the next day I headed up to Marcy. My wife was coming at 1:00 to pick us both up so I decided to leave the parking lot at 8:30 and try to make Marcy and be back down by 12:30. The round trip is around 12 miles. I quickly found out I was not in the shape I thought I was. I made it as far as 1.2 from the summit but had to turn around so I could be back out in time to be picked up. These are the things that I have done to keep me in some what of shape. I guess what I am saying is you just have stay active. Being inactive is what will do you in.

    I have this STP count down clock running on my computer - but, it is always reminding me I do not have much time left to get in shape. Maybe I should change it to the time remaining to dinner after the hike.

    I do the following training each week to keep in shape.

    1) Amateur Boxer - I spar about 20 rounds per week & coach amateur boxers.
    2) Cycling - I ride 20-30 miles per day on a fixed gear bicycle. (link to fixed gear info)
    3) Kettlebell training 3 days per week
    4) Climbing/Hiking - I hike at least one 4k summit per week.

    I've only recently heard of Crossfit. I've been using Kettlebells for about 8 years in my personal training. I've had my competitive boxers using Kettlebells for about 4 years. The training benefits are truly amazing.

    When the kettle for dinner is ready someone rings a bell? Or are these something different?
