We continue our “Time to get training” series with pro kayaker, waterfall launcher and cool dad, Nick Troutman.
Along with his wife (Emily Jackson), Nick has not only already etched his mark in the highest echelon of his sport, but throughout this pandemic has been dabbling in all sorts of fitness pursuits in preparation for the 2021 Mountain Games.
He’s spending his spring splashing around in whitewater – throwing tricks and paddling big waves. Note that he has already (as of March) launched back into racing, too. This guy, a World Freestyle Kayak Champion, has dropped more gnarly waterfalls around the world than most people and he’s typically a fixture on the Mountain Games podium.
In addition to twirling like a top in the whitewater, Nick has been finding extra strength and balance through home yoga. Have you been doing that 2-minute plank every day? Nick’s been doing it with a kid on his back.
