Two of the largest exhibitors at the show, Mountainman Outdoor Supply Company and Steiner’s Ski & Bike will be bringing gear, clothing, footwear and accessories to the expo. It’s a great way to stock up for every season.

Test Your Fitness
Do you have a personal fitness goal? Some aim for a specific time in an Ironman or marathon, others want to be able to finish those races and someone else trains to lose 20 pounds. To reach this or other goals, it is important to train efficiently. But how can you choose the best path to your goal if you don’t know where to begin?
Optimal training starts with understanding your current level of fitness. There’s more motivation when you know your goal and can estimate when you are able to reach it. A great way to start a journey like this is trying an Aeroscan test.
Biathlete and Olympic medalist Andrea Henkel Burke, a personal trainer based in Lake Placid, will be providing the Aeroscan test analysis at her booth. Test your energy metabolism by analyzing respiratory gas concentrations while at rest and during exertion. Individual training and exercising ranges can then be easily and comfortably determined from this.
By measuring oxygen intake and carbon dioxide output, the Aeroscan test determines, how the body burns fat, and carbohydrates to provide energy. The test takes just ten minutes and is also ideally suited to use with older and out-of-condition users.
Joe Moore with Placid Boatworks of Lake Placid will be conducting a pack boat camping seminar in his booth, so stop by, introduce yourself, and learn from him.
There will be many other ongoing booth clinics from our regional experts, outdoor enthusiasts and licensed guides, so enjoy the Summer Expo!
