Monthly Fitness Training for AVRS Members

January 10, 2015 - 8:43am -- manager

The first Wednesday of every month is fitness training night for Alberni Valley Rescue Squad team members. Led by fitness trainer, rugby conditioning coach, and AVRS team member Neil Shipley, the hour-long sessions focus on core strength and power. Searches are often physically challenging, and can involve steep hikes with a heavy backpack and long stretcher carries. It is Shipley's hope that team members will use the monthly training sessions as motivation to train on a regular basis, in order to be physically prepared for whatever a call-out requires.
