WEEKLY RUNNING TIP
A great way to stay fit during the winter months is snowshoeing. Some experts say that you can burn more calories snowshoeing than you can walking, running or cross country skiing at the same pace. "Snowshoeing is an effective, low impact, and safe form of exercise to change body composition. It burns up to twice the number of calories as walking at the same speed," says Dr. Declan Connolly of the University of Vermont's exercise physiology department. "Snowshoeing utilizes major muscle groups which, when combined with a higher metabolic rate in cold weather and the added resistance of moving through snow, results in a high-energy activity," says Connolly.
Dreamchasers has Crescent Moon snowshoes in stock and will be hosting upcoming local snowshoe race events. Refer to the Local Race Events section for additional details.
