If you're already familiar with the programs...
If you're unfamiliar, welcome! Here's all you need to know about Fit for Hiking.
When I first made the move from Indiana to Colorado I had never hiked. Literally ever. So I started with some of the classic short hikes near Denver, and started working my way up to some lengthier ones. All the while, I was on the freakin STRUGGLE BUS. Even as a Certified Personal Trainer and someone who had exercised my whole life, I was finding myself extremely frustrated with how limited I was when it came to hard inclines and long distances. Not to mention just not feeling my best in every sense despite exercising 5-6 days per week. I was consistently feeling lethargic and the opposite of "living my best life" both on + off the trails. When my frustration came to a pinnacle I was on my first backpacking trip. The whole time I was so miserably sucking wind in the back of the trekking group that I couldn't hardly enjoy what should have been literally the coolest experience of my life.
Because I was so new to mountain activities I had kinda just assumed that's what it had to be like. GUESS WHAT: It doesn't have to be!
I made some major changes in how I was exercising + eating that got me into the best shape of my LIFE, helped me finally find my best energy + unleashed my potential physically both on + off the trails. And these protocols are exactly what the Fit for Hiking Guides are made of!
