The single best way for a trekker to prepare for their adventure is to follow a structured, progressive strength and conditioning program. There is no question about that. But sometimes, finding the time to fit all of this in is just not possible!
But if you are incredibly busy, please don't use it as an excuse to do nothing. And just hope for the best on the trail... Instead, you should be doing everything you possibly can, within your time restrictions, to get yourself ready. And inside this episode, I will tell you exactly how to do that!
When it comes to Training For A Trek, getting some hiking time under your boots is absolutely essential! This is the single best thing you can do to prepare your body and mind for the uneven, undulating and unpredictable nature of the trail.

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...
