The Cool Way to get race fit - Spend just 10 minutes a day on the hikingbench and notice a real difference in your hiking performance. You can improve your upper body strength at the same time by throwing a Swissball into the air and catching it whilst hiking.

Remember, good posture is really important to avoid long term injury and improve your sailing performance; practice good posture and it becomes a habit!
