Q&A with Will Caton, owner of Swiss Fit Montana.

I’ll be the first to admit, when I talk with people about the workouts I’ve doing at Swiss Fit Montana, I struggle to explain the exercises, and, more importantly, how they tie in to training for the Ridge Run. So I asked Will Caton, the owner of Swiss Fit, to explain why he has me doing certain exercises.

Ridge Run training with Swiss Fit Montana.

This year, I wanted to incorporate some new training strategies to meet my goals of improving my time and getting stronger, so as not to break down physically after my third consecutive Ridge Run. To achieve these goals, I started working out with Will Caton at Swiss Fit Montana.

During my first session, I was introduced to the exercises I’d be using. But this wasn’t a polite introduction—it was a full-on workout. Will took note of key areas to target in future workouts, such as my slouch, as it takes more energy to run when you’re constantly lifting your body up and down. I also needed to work on the oft-discussed core, and my glutes, a muscle group that according to Will, I'd need to build for endurance, climbing, and descending.
