Where it all begins

Build your mountain body from the ground up. This is where we strip back all complexity and focus on the elements that matter most to hikers – Daily movement, core, total body strength & mountain specific cardio.

Not simply a fitness program, you’ll learn how to train effectively & seek out your weaknesses to explore them.
"It's weird to talk about 'performance' in what are essentially recreational activities but I truly believe that if we change our perspective and prepare like athletes do, then we have the opportunity to gain so much more from our experiences outside..."
Move your joints through their natural range of motion in your daily movement practice. Eliminate stiffness and fatigue in the short term and reduce the risk of injuries to hips, knees, shoulders and ankles in the long term.
Find your inner strength
Stabilise your mechanical axis to get more control of your movement across different terrain. Gain functional core strength – without a thousand sit ups.
A strong core includes everything between the knees to the shoulders… it’s much more than the six-pack.
Total body strength
Recruit often forgotten muscles to gain total body strength. so your body can withstand wear, pressure & damage on and off the trail.
Strategically build your aerobic base with mountain-specific cardiovascular training.
Do this right and it will not only change the way you train, but the results you get.

What equipment do I need?
None! It was designed from day one to be done at home in 2m x 2m space with absolutely no equipment.
How many days am I training?
I recommend that you perform the daily movement daily (10 minutes) and then typically there is another session either core, aerobic or strength.
Ultimately you choose how many sessions you want to do based on your current fitness and goals. There is progression built into the program so at a minimum I recommend you train 3 days a week.
How long are the sessions?
Daily movement – 10 minutes
Core – 15 minutes
Strength – approx 30-45 mins (depends on the amount of sets you choose)
Aerobic – 20 mins + (again depends on what you choose to do).
