Top 10 reasons to love hiking!

November 17, 2013 2 min read

This weekend for me was full of fresh air! Now that it's finally starting to cool off (while still remaining 90 degrees in the afternoon - I do live in Arizona after all)... I decided to get my a$$ outside and take the two loves of my life up a new trail. Anytime I can spend the day outside, it's a good day. I feel that hiking is such an underrated exercise and so good for your mental health. You can truly allow your mind to break free of all stress. photo 5 My Top 10 Reasons why I LOVE Hiking:
1) All the overly nice people - it is almost impossible to pass an avid hiker without a genuine "Hi"  --- a reminder that there really is genuinely kind people out there still! 
 
2) You can go at your own pace - Hiking is a form of exercise that doesn't judge your skill level, age or body.
 
3)  You're in the outdoors - nobody can smell your sweat! 
 
4) Automatically elevates your mood - a good hour or two in nature can calm your nerves and lifts your  spirits. 
 
5) Health benefits - lowers your risk of cardiovascular disease, helps prevent and control diabetes, increases bone density, lowers your cancer risk, and also provides your daily dose of Vitamin D. 
 
6) I am all about finding adventure. When you go hiking, no matter how difficult the trail, you always end up with some great stories and proud accomplishments. Not to mention seeing new sites, close encounters with wild animals (or in my case getting stung by a bee) and exploring new trails. 
 
7) It's Cheap! There are very few things in life no a days that are actually Free. Now, depending on where you go, you may have to pay for parking, snacks, and a maybe a water pack... BUT overall compared to just about any other exercise activity / sport, your upfront spending for hiking essentials is pretty minimal. 
 
8) Experience the wonder and the rugged beauty of nature. Enough said.

9) Hiking will test your will power and overall strength and allows you to experience an unadulterated sense of freedom. 
 
10) For me, it's great quality time with my pups. Snoopy (American Pit Bull) and Baby Jack (Pit / German Shepard Mix) absolutely love the trails and takes a lot to keep up with them. They are as happy to explore new sites as I am and push me beyond my own expectations.

Shipping & Delivery
We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 1-2 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

Free Shipping: We are thrilled to now offer free shipping at checkout! If you choose this option at checkout, your order will be delivered ground within 5-7 business days.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system
