Ruck the Work Week! [Every Sunday Morning]
Rucking is a way to exercise in a highly efficient manner, as it targets several key areas of fitness at the same time. You can transform your body with rucking in many ways as it burns 3 times more calories than walking alone.
Time & Location

Busse Woods, Busse Woods, Elk Grove Township, IL 60007, USA
About the Event
Looking to get started with a new challenge for the new year, not into running or want to take your current walking routine to the next level?
Then let's ruck it! That's right! I said it!
Depending on how you view your work week, Sunday end or Sunday start, getting in a solid ruck will be either the perfect end to a hectic week, a great way to kick off the new week or both!
We will meet at the roundabout on the way to Grove #17 by 7:15am (see map) and the ruck will start promptly at 7:30am. We will ruck 30 minutes into the Busse Woods trail and 30 minutes back for a full hour ruck. As the days get longer and the group increases in size, we can adjust starting points on the trail and duration to continue to challenge the group.
Rucking is a way to exercise in a highly efficient manner, as it targets several key areas of fitness at the same time.
You can transform your body with rucking in many ways, including:
* Building up your muscles, particularly your shoulders, core, and back.
* Shedding fat as you burn three times as many calories as you could walking without the backpack and get the same benefits of running and jogging (with less risk of injury).
* Improving your overall posture as you strengthen your back muscles.
* Relieving and preventing back pain.
* Strengthening your hip and posture stability, making you less injury prone in general.
Rucking effectively allows you to combine aerobic training and strength training while slicing your workout to a fraction of the time. The more you go rucking, the more you can notice its impact on the rest of your health. Your posture as you sit at your office desk is better. Your stamina is improved during your other workouts. Your pesky back pain decreases or vanishes entirely. Rucking provides lasting benefits affecting many areas of your health.

I can also share some additional pointers with you during our ruck because we will have plenty of time to talk and get to know each other while we get fit together!
There is no minimum number of people needed for the ruck, but since this is a free event you must RSVP by 7pm the night before in order for the ruck to take place the following morning.
Looking forward to meeting all of you!
