Physical Training Plan


Why do we recommend training for our expeditions? On our courses, we find that the more fit our students, the greater their success and enjoyment; they are able to take advantage of learning and leadership opportunities and focus on curriculum and peak ascents. In the mountains, fitness and endurance are also part of our risk management strategy, enabling us to move quickly through areas with overhead hazard or conduct a rescue after an eight-hour summit bid. Additionally, overall fitness decreases injuries, enabling students to physically participate fully on course; this is key, as our curriculum is primarily experiential.
