Do you want to be:
The fittest you can possibly be?
Able to tackle those hills and feel great at the top?
Enjoy your trek and the scenery without feeling exhausted and unable to go on?
Finish your tårek high-fiving everyone and with the biggest smile on your face?
If you answered yes to these questions, then TrekFit Australia is here for you.
Our accredited and experienced trainers and guides are well qualified to prepare you for your ultimate personal challenge. We are passionate about all things trekking and are ready to join you on your journey.
We can offer you:
Individual training programs focusing on strength and whole body fitness.
Training hikes to build your endurance.
Advice on equipment and apparel
Comprehensive packing lists for many trekking destinations.
The level of physical fitness required will vary, depending on your trekking destination. Whether you are a beginner or have some experience, TrekFit Australia can support you all the way.
As your fitness develops, you will build up all aspects of your training.
Initially your training program includes a couple of rest days each week. This allows your body time to recover and gives your muscles time to build strength.
It is important to start slowly and build up. If you go too hard too early you risk getting injured – then you are right back at the start!
We recommend some basic exercises such as squats, lunges, pushups and sit ups. All of these can be done either at home or in the park, or gym, depending on where you are at any time. Of course getting out into the great outdoors and walking is an important part of your training.
