Waiv­er and Par-Q:

Par­tic­i­pants must com­plete and sign the below doc­u­ments and pro­duce them in hand on the date of their train­ing, prac­tice, and offi­cial test­ing:

Train­ing Tips:

1. You should be train­ing on a reg­u­lar basis, at least 3 times per week.

2. You should be train­ing both your anaer­o­bic and aer­o­bic car­dio­vas­cu­lar sys­tems.

3. The test­ing requires you to use your upper body, your core, and your low­er body. Strength in all 3 areas is para­mount.

4.  Wear clean and dry run­ning shoes with good tread for your test­ing ses­sion.  Shoes with worn out treads or that have exces­sive dirt embed­ded in the soles reduce trac­tion for the pulling and push­ing phase of the test.  Good footwear is impor­tant!
