During the snowy winter months here in Sunriver, it’s easy to cozy up next to a fire with some hot chocolate and not venture out into the outdoors. But, if you’re here and looking to keep yourself in shape or maybe just starting to prep for the big 20 year anniversary race, here are some ways you can do that in Central Oregon!
- Gyms: Central Oregon has Crossfit places and plenty of other local gyms. In Sunriver, there’s our own local Ambush Fitness. Their website is www.ambushfitness.com, email firstname.lastname@example.org, and their phone number is 541-848-8342 Keep warm and fit at Ambush Fitness!
- Cross Country/Nordic Skiing: Sunriver’s golf courses become fantastic routes for cross country skiing! Mt. Bachelor also provides cross country skiing routes. If you don’t have your own gear, there are several shops in the Village at Sunriver that will rent you what you need. Nordic skiing is a top tier manner for keeping fit in the winter months!
- Running/Walking Paths: Even when the snow falls, sometimes the nest way to keep in shape for a run is to run. Sunriver works hard to keep their paved paths plowed when the rest of the world is covered in the white stuff. Watch for ice and dress appropriately, but be assured, you can get out there are practice even during winter.
- Sage Springs Spa, Club, and Gym: Sunriver Lodge runs this upscale, fully staffed Spa. Tennis, gym and full spa offerings are available. Massages are always great after a workout or just to loosen up. Check out their lineup at http://www.sunriver-resort.com/spa/oregon-spa-resorts.
Never give up! There’s always a way to keep yourself ready for the PacCrest! We’ll see you in June!
