Cross training is a high-intensity sport designed for senior athletes who are looking for strength and aerobic training diversity. Workouts are designed specifically with the participants’ needs in mind—coaches encourage dialogue and goal setting in order to create the best experience for all athletes.
Running local mountains, kick-boxing, cardio and strength circuits, swimming, tabata training, cycling and hot yoga are just some of the activities athletes can expect to complete. Although all levels of athletic ability are encouraged to join, this sport is not for the faint of heart; it takes courage and determination to be part of this program.
By the end of each term, athletes can expect to have enhanced cardio capacity, core stability and flexibility and to have gained valuable workout and training ideas that they can take with them when they move on to future endeavours.

Having a houseparent as a mother, Fiona Dalrymple grew up as a private school campus brat. Little did she know that sharing her mum with generations of teenage girls and wearing knee highs and kilts would be integrated so completely into her cellular makeup. After fleeing the West Coast in search of adventure (and to attend and play field hockey for Queen’s University), Ms. Dalrymple realized that her heart belonged in B.C. She met her husband at Shawnigan Lake School and has since worked at Glenlyon Norfolk School, Dwight International School, and Cowichan Secondary School. Ms. Dalrymple’s major passions in life are organic land care and the natural environment (and teaching math and science of course!). She is an outdoor enthusiast who helps organize the school ski trips, trains for triathlons, and mountaineers when she has a moment to spare.
