With a love of adventure and the outdoors, Kelly wanted to share these experiences with others. Treks are designed to empower you, provide a little bit of a challenge, and/or experience something completely new and out of your comfort zone. Being in nature releases your mind and it’s also a great opportunity to enjoy some relaxation and yoga at the end of each day, meet other people and really feel that you have left the rat-race behind (even if it may just be a short break).
Hiking has plenty of perks: nice views, fresh air, and the sounds and smells of nature. Research has also shown, it is actually good for us too. Not only a great cardio workout but benefits include:
- Lowers your risk of heart disease
- Improves your blood pressure and blood sugar levels
- Boosts bone density, since walking is a weight bearing exercise
- Builds strength in your glutes, quadriceps, hamstrings, and the muscles in your hips and lower legs
- Strengthens your core
- Improves balance and confidence
- Helps control your weight
- Boosts your mood.
- Research shows that hiking has a positive impact on combating the symptoms of stress and anxiety
