Would you frequent a website for hunter health/fitness?

Postby JPH » Sun Feb 28, 2010 1:42 pm

Just spit ballin' here, but if there was a website built around hunter health/fitness, would you visit it? What I envision would be a place where hunters could view exercise demos, get nutrition tips, and see how fitness (or a lack thereof) is effecting hunters. Everything geared for the regular guy/gal with limited time and budget to workout, but a desire to be healthier.

And by the way, any site I would be a part of would heavily endorse D&DH, so there is no conflict of interest here.

Be honest.

Joe, I would but being a fitness nut I think I'd get bored of it quick just because its so specialized.  I'll throw this out there though, I think there is value in having a dept/writer in an outdoor/hunting/fishing magazine (like D&DH) that features a fitness article geared towards this demographic each month...and if a magazine like D&DH is looking for such talent they'd be smart to snap you up [;)]

Let me add that in doing so they can be probably the first to lock into the fitness equipment industry for the advertising..no small change($) there [;)]

I probably wouldn't visit a website specifically targeted at hunter fitness, but I think one-page on the topic in D&DH magazine might be a good thing.

When the Everyday Hunter isn't hunting, he's thinking about hunting, talking about hunting, dreaming about hunting, writing about hunting, or wishing he were hunting.

This is great feedback. Please keep it coming!
 
As someone who has more than a passing intreast in exercise, I frequent several fitness web sites and I personaly endorse them:
www.rosstraining.com
www.crossfit.com
www.mtnathlete.com and www.militaryathlete.com
 
I use them to get/keep my motivation, find new exercise ideas and to learn from others with a simmilar passion. If you can take the time to look them over, you will see that they do not cater to the "traditional" athlete. They are geared toward military, emergency services, combat athletes, and outdoor types. I just cant help thinking that hunters are missing the boat and that there is a need to offer hunters access to "sport specific" fitness training.
 
I don't know, maybe I'm kidding myself. Either way, keep the ideas coming.

I think so. I also subscribe to Men's Health Mag and that has a ton of good info....I think you'd have to somehow make it unique to get your niche.  Feel me?

No, not really.
Seems it would be a VERY niche demographic.

If it is something you wish to do to gain personal fulfillment, then it's an awesome idea though!!!

If I want to learn and talk about fitness...I go to a "fitness" website.
 
If I want to learn and talk about hunting...I go to a "hunting" website.
 
IMO...A blurb or a forum on the topic if people want to go on it and learn and share ideas I think is ok...but not an entire website.  It's only one aspect of hunting.
