Outdoor Programs 2021
After a long wait, we are excited to bring back our outdoor in-person programs! To ensure the safety of all of our members, vaccination proof is required to participate. If you have not already completed your 2021 membership form or submitted a medical release form since 2018, you must do those before attending a program. For those who are not vaccinated or wish to exercise from home, our online fitness classes will continue. To participate in an in-person outdoor program, there are two additional steps this year:
Step 1: Submit proof of vaccination using the button below. Participants need only submit this once.
Step 2: Register for individual programs using the buttons below each program description.
If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

New to group riding? Haven’t ridden your bike in awhile? Join Get Cycling with TSNW and come on out and ride! Rides will take place twice a week from mid-July through September.

Dragon boating is a team sport that is appropriate for all fitness levels. No experience is required and equipment is provided. Our team, Survivor SAKE, paddles under the umbrella organization Seattle SAKE Paddling Club. New paddlers can join 3 practices before deciding to become a member of SAKE, which requires a reduced annual $65 membership fee. Because we are all moving the boat together, beginners are able to rest when needed and still stay with the group. Coaches, captains and experienced Survivor paddlers teach, orientate and support each other. Practices are held year-round on Saturdays at 9:00 am. A weekday evening 6:00 practice may be added later this summer.
Scholarships are available to those who need financial assistance – contact Beatriz at email@example.com to apply.
INTENSITY: LOW TO HIGH
Have you ever wanted to do an “-athlon” but felt too intimidated? This duathlon is unique and built for anyone! You can walk, run, cycle or consider this a multisport training and Coach Denise will help you set your own goals with swimming, rowing, etc. For the time being, trainings will take place virtually every Tuesday and Thursday from 6:00-7:00pm on Zoom and in-person on Saturdays at noon.
intensity level: moderate to High
Trail hikes are in the mountains, where you will enjoy breathtaking scenery as well as rigorous hikes. These hikes are designed to be progressive, increasing in distance and elevation gain as the season advances. We encourage and accommodate fit-but-slower hikers and faster hikers. Hikes run every Wednesday in the Issaquah Alps, I-90 corridor and Snoqualmie Pass area, North Cascades and Mt. Rainier National Park. Participants may meet at pre-designated carpool locations between 7:30-8:30am and drive to the trail head.
intensity level: low to moderate
Nordic Walking is performed with specially designed Nordic walking poles (not ski poles or hiking/trekking poles). Compared to walking, Nordic walking can be significantly more effective at strengthening the cardiovascular system and building total-body strength. Because Nordic Walking engages the total body in movement against resistance, the calories burned can be much greater than the calories burned by walking. These group walks alternate between the Westside and Eastside every Thursday morning from 10:30 am to 12 noon.
intensity level: low to moderate
Walk, talk and explore the parks and neighborhoods of the greater Seattle area, the Eastside and Mercer Island. We meet at various locations and hike 3-4 miles with up to a 500ft elevation gain. Plan on up to 2 hours. Meet on Fridays at 9:30am.
