Whether you’re an East Coast treestand hunter or a West Coast spot-and-stalk whitetail fanatic, deer hunting can be strenuous on your muscles, joints and cardiovascular system. Combine this with the fact that America’s hunting demographic is trending older, and it can be a recipe for disaster for the individual who doesn’t take the pastime seriously.
Brittany Jill, a kickboxing instructor and personal trainer who happens to be an avid whitetail bowhunter, is the host of Fit to Kill. In this exclusive, new series, Brittany Jill will provide top-end information and instruction to help deer hunters become healthier, and ultimately more successful in the field.
Some folks might think of deer hunting as simply an effortless spectator sport. But for many there’s often a lot more activity involved. Sitting in a treestand or ground blind from sunup to sundown is no walk in the park either. Especially several days in a row during the rut. Enduring extreme heat, cold, rain or snow and everything in between, on top of very early mornings and late nights, can all take a toll on a deer hunter’s body.
We always hear about fitness and eating better and exercise. It’s all well and good, and sure it’s better for your health overall. Everyone can do something to become more fit and more healthy, even just a little at a time. It will benefit your life overall, it will certainly benefit your hunting and your ability to enjoy all of the activities involved with it.
That’s where Fit to Kill comes in, as the show will explain and demonstrate simple, basic exercises related to hunting activities that take very little time and can be performed just about anywhere outside, at home or in a gym setting. Stick with it, and you will see improvements.
