Natali Zollinger Conditioning/Training for River Paddle Boarding
Natali Zollinger is all about fitness conditioning and training. She is a powerful woman with exuberant energy. Her passion for the river is real. She's a long time raft guide taking her on Grand Canyon trips, Middle Fork of the Salmon, and the Alsek River.
She's a competitive whitewater SUP racer and paddling coach. This year she has teamed up with Badfish paddler Brittany Parker to begin an instructional brand called RVR 2 RVR inspiring paddlers to hit the water.
I have been impressed with both Natali and Brittany for their tireless work in proving that river running is open to everyone, men and women equally, who have an athletic and adventurous spirit.
This recent Blog post from RVR 2 RVR takes you through a great workout to get you ready for the river season. Enjoy, and good paddling!
