All Club Fit Frog Urban Hikes, Mountain Day Hikes and snowshoe and multi-day lodge hike and snowshoe trips are coordinated by Lori Beattie, the owner of Fit Frog Adventures and the volunteer guide for Club Fit Frog.

She is the author of the best-seller, Calgary’s Best Hikes and Walks and Calgary’s Best Bike Rides and Trails. Her new guidebook, Calgary’s Best Walks, was released in March, 2015.

Lori has organized and guided Calgarians and tourists on over 2000 Calgary hikes and 600 mountain hikes and snowshoe treks since she started Fit Frog in May of 1997. On Club Fit Frog programs, Lori will provide you with all of the pre-trip organization, and most of the time, she’ll attend the program as the coordinator and volunteer guide. She’ll research trails and, for the multi-day trips, she will offer self-guided hike, snowshoe or ski options or you could join her and the group on the route of the day.

All Fit Frog guides, coordinators and volunteer mountain guides are certified and qualified in wilderness first aid, navigation and route finding. They all have experience coordinating and leading groups in the great outdoors.

Lori also enjoys writing for magazines and newspapers about walking, publishing books about urban walking and biking, and speaking to groups about self-propelled lifestyles. Some might call it a walking addiction, a biped passion. Lori (and her family) would agree.
