Winter 2022

Virtual Winter Training

Dates: Thursdays Virtually & OYO January 20th through March 24th
Time: 6:30 – 7:30 PM
Cost: $100
Keep moving this winter virtually and stay connected with a group. The group will meet virtually on Thursday evenings starting January 20th for a guided weight and core circuit. A 10 – 20lb dumbbell/medicine ball/kettle bell is recommended but not required. Additional workouts will be provided online and tracked through an app to keep everyone motivated and working together. The goal of these sessions is to maintain or build a base of overall fitness, body awareness and community over the winter months as we work towards our 2022 on water season, which we hope to start at the end of March weather permitting. Anyone interested in participating on the water with FVRA in 2022 is strongly encouraged to participate. Space is limited to 20 participants.
