MANHATTAN, Kan. - The Kansas State Track and Field coaching staff is once again offering the Wildcat Fitness Camp this fall. The camp is open to any and all people who are looking to get fit. Campers will have the opportunity to train with members of the coaching staff as well as former and current K-State student-athletes while receiving instruction on a variety of techniques to improve training practices.

The Wildcat Fitness Camp is a four-week program that meets three days a week (Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday) beginning on September 8. Cost of the camp is $75, a cost of less than $7 per session. K-State Athletics staff and immediate family receive a discounted cost of $60.

Activities of the camp will include: warming up, warming down, running form instruction, general strength development, core strength development, mobility development, flexibility development, cardio development and injury prevention techniques.

Wildcat Fitness is open to any and all ages, fitness levels and goals. Each day of the camp will consist of a workout plan that will progress over the camp. Modifications will be made each day based on the skill levels, ability levels and goals of the campers.

"This is a great opportunity for people in the Manhattan community to get active and fit in a comfortable and social atmosphere while receiving instruction," said K-State Assistant Coach Kyle Hierholzer. "I am excited about this camp because it offers something very unique that will help the campers get in shape and learn how to properly workout."
