If you have a significant hike or trek in your sights, you need to be training. That is a simple fact. But for many, finding time to get out on the trail and go out hiking a couple of times a week seems like a distant dream…
Whether it is because of work, family, social commitments or anything else, the simple fact is that many aspiring hikers are incredibly time-poor. And while it might be tempting to simply ignore your training in this situation, and just hope for the best on the trail, this is a trap you don’t want to fall into…
Too many people begin their treks woefully under prepared. And they put them self at unnecessary risk of pain, injury and even failure on their adventures. Instead, you need to be fitting in what training you can. So you can not only ensure you succeed in your adventure, but you also do it safely and comfortably!

And if this is you, don't worry! This can be a perfectly valid method of training. You just have to be smart about it...
When it comes to Training For A Trek, there are so many different training methods you can use. And while there will never be one 'best' way of training, there are a number of methods in the trekking world which might seem good in theory, but in the real world are entirely overrated.
