Explore reasons to engage in fitness activities/challenges as we age, such as high altitude mountaineering, what the Seven Summits are, how Dr. Masheter trained for each of the Seven Summits (the highest peak in each continent), what each climb was like, and what she learned during the preparation and actual climb of the Seven Summits. Crucial lessons Dr. Masheter learned from mountaineering include: staying active and taking on challenges can open doors to exciting new opportunities, crisis can be an opportunity for growth, it is never too late (or too early) to do something significant. Gauging member interest over the course, we could do a class hike together during the last class.
