Lively Dragon Club
Get Fit, Stay Fit, Get Fitter

Along with the Saturday morning hikes "Walks to Enjoy!" and "Pool Practice" we do many other activities to stay and maintain fitness through the winter months. 

Keeping variety in your workout regime helps ensure you hit your targets safely while having fun learning new exercises, enhancing  balance and strength.

We run, jog, spin, row, go to the gym, do yoga, TRX, boot camps, cross country ski, stairs, skate and more. All activities contribute to your youthful vigor weather you are 15, 50, 60 or 80 and climbing. Doing it will enable you to continue doing it with a smile and spring in your step.

Here is a short list of some of the places we use and enjoy.

Hamilton Stairs 

Locations: Upper Paradise to Chedoke, Dundurn St, James St, Wentworth St, Kenilworth St
Check out Hamilton Library page on Hamilton Stairs
There are lots of sets of stairs along the escarpment. Use them! Go up and down then as quickly as possible and you will soon recognize them as a challenge from beginner to champion.  We get counts from our team members that they have done 2000, 6000, 8000, 14000 stairs in a week. The vertical challenge is the big benefit. Work at it and soon you will be able to run up them several times before having to slow to a walk. Naturally be careful, be polite and friendly to others using the stairs. 

The Bruce Trail Bruce Trail
It runs right through the centre of Hamilton running from Niagara Falls to Tobemory. 
 The Bruce Trail, Canada's oldest and longest marked footpath, provides the only continuous public access to the magnificent Niagara Escarpment, a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve. Running along the Escarpment from Niagara to Tobermory, it spans more than 890 km of main Trail and over 400 km of associated side trails.
