Hunter Fitness Class


Tuesday, 5:30pm - 7:30pm

​Hunter Fitness classes are designed to help archers meet the demands that the wilderness will throw at them.  The most important and critical piece of gear you could own is a fit and healthy body.  No piece of equipment will make up for the lack of fitness when it matters most.  At GFB Outdoors we believe that being fit and practicing your archery skills under physical and mental stress will make you more equipped at being ethical hunters.  

The Hunter Fitness Classes will take place on Tuesdays from 5:30pm - 7:30pm.  The location will change every other week between Blackhawk Bowhunters, 2103 County Highway Pb, Verona, WI 53593 and Tyrol Basin, 3487 Bohn Rd, Mt Horeb, WI 53572.  Please check the Book Online page for the schedule of locations. 

In 2017 Brian competed in the Wisconsin and Pennsylvania Train to Hunt, bringing home 2nd place overall in both competitions.  Additionally, Wilderness Athlete awarded Brian the "Train to Hunt First Timer Elite" award.  He also helped Ed Pierick and Peter Kammer (featured in photos above) to train and prepare for the competitions where they both placed respectively in their age group and competed at the national competition in Colorado. 


The first half of each class will include high intensity training that will utilize your body weight, sand bags, box steps, trail runs and other forms of exercise. Participants will be asked to bring your bows in order to include target shooting with the fitness training, as well as your pack and an appropriate weight for your pack (optional).  This will enable you to shoot under pressure with an elevated heart rate, just as you would experience in the field.  The second half of the class will include a fun head to head challenge with other participants that will include some type of physical exercise and shooting competition.
