The Training For Trekking Podcast

Jul 1, 2019

Some people love it, some people hate it. But is training in the gym something hikers and trekkers should be doing? Or should you be doing all your training outside?

This is a subject that comes up from time to time, but it never gets a through and unbiased discussion. So today I explore both the good and bad of training in the gym vs training outside.

In this episode I discuss:

  • The four aspects of fitness which EVERY trekker needs to be working on
  • The positives and drawbacks of training outside for trekkers
  • The pros and cons of using training in the gym for hikers and trekkers
  • My opinion on where trekkers should be doing their training
