CHOOSE YOUR LEVEL OF FITNESS
NEWBIE, MODERATE OR HARD CORE
Choose an appropriate level to start, then progress to the next level every 12 weeks. If you love getting the Trek Training buzz, Luvmyhike will become your ongoing guide to staying Trek Fit for Life.
Newbie: just starting out, would find climbing a large set of stairs challenging/don’t really have a regular exercise regime/ new to outdoor fitness. Moderate: have exercised regularly at least 2-3 times a week for a year or more and could walk briskly for 3 hours on uneven terrain. Hard Core: Exercise at a relatively high level 4+ times a week, experience in body weight training outdoors on varied terrain.
CHOOSE YOUR HIKE TYPE
ALTITUDE, ENDURANCE OR FULL PACK TREK
Each time you start a new 12 week cycle, you can choose to focus on training for Altitude, Endurance or Full Pack.
Altitude: for treks on high! Focus on increasing lung capacity, leg strength to get you both up and down those long summit climbs and mental focus when the going gets tough.
Endurance: for long distance, multi day trekking or endurance events such as Coastrek: Build time on your legs and practise your hydration, nutrition, footcare and mental toughness on extended walks.
Full Pack: for when you carry all your gear and food in your pack for a multi day trek. Start light and add weight over time to build strength and coordination in order to carry a heavy pack on uneven terrain. Even if you don’t have a trek booked, training with a full pack is a great addition for those who want to take their fitness and strength to the next level by adding resistance to the workouts.
