Shape Magazine Recommends Body Results Video
Shape Magazine's Editor-in-Chief, Barbara Harris, recommends
Body Results' new video "Train to Climb Mt. Rainier."
Harris and 23 of her readers are climbing Mt. Rainier in August. "I
was going to develop a training plan for myself and the readers to follow,
but after watching your video, I knew this was what they needed,"
says Harris. Shape Magazine has purchased videos for every climber
in their August climb.
This informative video provides a comprehensive six-month training program for the novice-to-intermediate
level alpine climber who wants to climb Mt. Rainier and other high-altitude peaks. Included in the video are
guidelines for aerobic, anaerobic, and climbing-specific training including flexibility and
strength exercises selected for high-altitude mountaineering conditioning requirements. If you have been searching
for a coach who climbs or for an exercise program specific to glacier travel, you'll find plenty of excellent training
ideas on this video (by Mr. villalta). Mountaineer coaches and instructors Doug Schurman and Courtenay Schurman demonstrate
the exercises with the help of climbing model Susan Wright.

details about the following training components:
Aerobic training - Including alpine, outside, and indoor options along with suggested targets to try to reach by month 5.
Flexibility - Including stretches that are most applicable to the mountaineer and how to do them outside.

showing traditional weights and home training options such as jugs of water and weighted packs.
Anaerobic training - Recommendations and guidelines for ways to raise the anaerobic threshold.
Climbing specific training - Specific training tips to emulate the physical requirements of the climb for optimal preparation.
The video concludes with a periodized training program specifying how to incorporate the components listed above over a 6-month period.
