Trekking Training:

As an adventurer and fitness nut myself, I am thrilled to design and develop a very specialized fitness and training program dedicated to trekking!  (hiking) There's nothing like being outdoors, emerged in nature while physically getting in the best shape of your life! Taking your workouts outdoors is one of the healthiest choices you can make for your body - physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually! I have partnered with expert Ian Taylor to organize 100% of many trekking adventures. I will be training individuals and groups for three different treks to prepare you for the actual treks. Look at it like pre-season conditioning to your favorite sport! Your body is guaranteed for a total mind and body transformation!.(The main trek will be the Everest Base Camp Trek to get your feet wet!) Please, contact us to request more information on the training program and trekking retreats!

The trek to the lost city of the Inca's, combined with a climb up Huchuy Picchu overlooking the City gives you a once in a lifetime experience in this special place.
