Being Prepared

GET FIT TODAY! It's the number one thing you should be doing to maximize the trip of a lifetime.

Stacking vertical day after day requires physical preparation that starts months in advance by building a strong base. We recommend working with a personal trainer to begin with to ensure that you're making gains rather than doing damage.

Maintain discipline throughout the months and weeks leading up to your trip. By setting the tone early on you will be sure to get down here in great shape so as to not get gassed on the first days. Don't make the mistake of thinking you'll be fine with just a couple of easy weeks training before your flight.
