3 Serious Considerations for our Survivor Adventure Program

Are you registered for the Survivor Adventure program yet? There are only 10 days left before registration closes.

Here are 3 reasons you may not have registered yet, and why you should overcome them.

1. It's going to be too hard for me

Every year Survivor Adventure is different. There have definitely been some challenging years that have pushed people to their maximum limits. This year in Algonquin Park through the Barron Canyon's is as much an adventure as a tough workout. We don't have running drills during the trip and you don't have to do the physical challenges if you don't want to (but there will definitely be some good challenges for those looking for a little oomph over the weekend). That means you can come, be with incredible people, and get a good workout without feeling destroyed after the weekend. There is so much to learn and do that you are really missing out if you stay home.

2. It's too expensive

Trips like this typically cost hundreds if not near thousands of dollars with the amount of information that is being packed into these hours. Everyone will come out of this weekend with tools to improve their lives in nutrition, fitness or even life skills in general. Learning basic map reading and survival skills may be a skill you need to use at some point in your life and you don't want to be caught without them. Cut out a couple of dinners with friends and skip the Starbucks and you'll have no problem affording it. The question is, how much do you want to reach your goals? Because you won't find all of this information packed into a weekend anywhere else at this price. And although I've spoken about a lot of these different methods and skills throughout the year, reminders and honing your skills are needed by all athletes. If you want it bad enough, like a sick pet needs to go to the vet or you get sick and need medication, you'll find a way. This is no different, but you're building skills to avoid the costs that might come up later. 

3. I don't have the time

We all have a million and one things to get done and I'm no different. But at some point something is going to give and the more things you have to do, the less likely you are to get them done. Adding more stress to your life by cutting out the things you want to do for the things you feel like you have to do, can make your life that much more miserable. Eventually you'll start to lose sleep, gain weight and get sick more often because you aren't getting enough of the things that you actually need. Put your to-do list aside for a few days and get away from it all. You won't regret it.
