Start Spring Training in Niagara Falls

Remember those New Year’s resolutions that we blogged about earlier this year? How are those going, have you kept up with your goals? We know how easy it can be to let your resolutions get away from you, so today the Panoramic Properties blog team has a number of suggestions for special events that you can train for if you need the motivation to get fit near your Niagara Falls apartment.

Yoga Workshops

For any yoga practitioners looking to take their skills to the next level, the Niagara Falls Yoga Centre is hosting an Inversion Workshop in April. This is perfect for yogis who have been practicing for some time but maybe afraid to try inversions or other advanced poses.  This inverted poses workshop will teach participants to develop these advanced poses with ease. For any newbies, why not study yoga with an advanced workshop in mind? The Niagara Falls Yoga Centre also offers beginner level classes and a variety of events. Check out the website for more details.

When: April 14, 2013 12:30 p.m.-2:30 p.m.

Where: Niagara Falls Yoga Centre

The Niagara Falls Women’s Half Marathon  (NFWHM)

This fun-run event is perfect for beginning runners looking to set their own goals. The course is not your average road race; the route takes participants through a garden path and past the Falls two times.  Participants can register as a team to run or walk.  All racers are presented with a finisher’s medal by a firefighter or cheerleader just after crossing the finish line. Part of the race’s proceeds will go towards Women’s Place of South Niagara Inc., an organization that works to end domestic violence. The NFWHM’s website has posted an easy-to-follow training program, so start off your runs earlier rather than later. There’s also a link to a resource that gives participants healthy recipes to help fuel your training sessions.

When: This is a weekend event that kicks off on May 31st although the race itself falls on Sunday, June 2, 2013, at 7:00 a.m.

Where:  Niagara Falls, exact location T.B.A.

Niagara Falls International Marathon

Not fazed by a half-marathon? Niagara Falls is also home to a full marathon event. It’s the premiere part of the Niagara Falls Runfest weekend that also includes a half marathon and 2k, 5k, and 10k runs. What better way to benchmark your fitness goals than by running alongside elite athletes in this marathon event?

When: Friday, October 25-Sunday October 27, 2013, with the full marathon falling on October 27
