This year 2016-2017 we have started the project "Conquering the Catalan Peaks"
Els Caminaires d’Elna som un grup d’amics i/o coneguts que ens agrada la natura i caminar.
Ens reunim un cap de setmana al mes per descobrir indrets naturals, compartint reptes i objectius comuns amb els companys que hi participen.
S’organitzen diferents grups i nivells segons les possibilitats físiques de cada caminaire.
The plan is to reach Catalan peaks, starting with those of less height
For athletes with lower physical abilities, routes with less difficulty are performed. Several authors have proved that interaction with the nature favors emotional well-being and reduces obesity, as well as preventing type II diabetes mellitus and improving muscle strength of the major muscle groups in the entire population.
On the other hand, the medical and physical checks carried out have confirmed that the majority of the participants in the project have good levels of cardiovascular resistance, but important deficiencies in the levels of muscular strength of the lower limbs. That is why mountain related activities are proposed every quarter with the aim of continuing to carry out cardiovascular work, but above all with strength.
