HERE IS HOW IT'S DELIVERED 

Delivery (HOW) is as important as the Program (WHAT) and importantly the GOAL (YOUR WHY).

Having coached clients for years as a Nutrition & Wellbeing coach and now PT, the delivery is an important aspect to understand. There is a process that needs to be followed in order to optimise your results.

 

How it rolls:

Health & Fitness Assessment

Let’s start with a comprehensive health and fitness assessment. This will allow me to identify your current level of fitness, strengths and opportunities for improvement. We will unpack what it is exactly that you want to achieve and set realistic goals based on where you are (abilities), what you’re willing to put in (intentions) to get to where you want to be (goals).

The assessment is delivered via ZOOM online for real-time feedback, however can be submitted as a video recording to allow me to obtain insight into a range of motion, mobility, and physical attributes in order to safely write and deliver your program.

This is your opportunity to clearly identify any suspected challenges so we can work together to devise solutions before they become problematic. Let’s set it up right from the start to fail-safe your goals!

 

Building Foundation

Strong foundational fitness is critical to success. Working on assessment of your current level of fitness, we will train aerobic conditioning, core strength, mobility, correct form and technique of movements, general strength, and any corrections/ modifications as required, identified in the initial assessment.

Before we start building on the base, we will make sure your foundation is strong and responsive. This conditioning phase will see your energy levels increase before we add strength to your training regime.

Depending on your level of fitness, this foundational stage will take a number of weeks.

 

Strength training

Any adventurer will benefit from strength training. Whether you are already training and have a good level of health, this strength training is specific to your hiking adventure goals. Endurance to the summit, each requires a slightly different approach to ensure your targeting key muscle groups to optimise your enjoyment on the trail.

Fully customised to you and your goals; if you’re taking on a multi-night pack hiking journey, we will build leg strength and focus on core stability whilst discussing how, what and why of walking technique and form.

​Preparation is the key. You’ve built a solid foundation, added your strength training and feeling stronger, more capable, and have more power in the tank than ever before to take on your challenge. Now it’s time to put it into practice outdoors.

Take It Outside

Transfer the foundational and strength work into your arena. With improved aerobic fitness, muscles power, and stamina, this is the opportunity to see how your hard work pays off when you hit the trails.

Training hikes that simulate your event or end goal – say you’re looking at completing the Great Ocean Walk, conditioning your body and mind for the event on these trail training days ensures that you have what it takes to go the distance. This is our magic spot where your program starts to come together to see results.

Outside training elements will incorporate sports-specific loading principles, muscular endurance, sports nutrition including hydration, and active recovery and identify any other aspects to support your goals.

It won’t be easy, but it will be worth it.

 

Test your limits

After weeks of training outdoors and in your element, it’s time to up the ante and test your training with a simulated event run-through. Pack hiking 3 days in the wilderness? Let’s have you cover similar terrain on consecutive days. The idea here is to mimic your event but not at full –capacity. 75% of your event output is what we are aiming for here.

By this time you should be feeling strong, capable, and have plenty of juice in the tank to take on anything. We work through any other technical aspects and gear tests to ensure that you are 100% prepared.

COACHING SUPPORT, ACCOUNTABILITY & MOTIVATION

Customised training program delivered via APP.  Full video and instructional cues also serves as a communication point whereby we can message about a specific exercise/session and give feedback. Log your training, give real-time feedback of how you felt in a session, and track your recorded metrics for a visual cue of progress, ongoing feedback, and assessment.

 

Nutrition; Meal guides, recipes and inspiration infused with informative know how to get the most out of your endurance performance and recovery. Family-friendly meals, allergies, and specific dietary requirements are considered in order to deliver inspiration to fuel your adventures. 

 

Mindset/Healthy Habit formation; Learn how to overcome mental barriers and turn adversity into advantage. Supported throughout your program with strategies and tools to help you look for the opportunity to optimise your results. Discover how disciplined action will allow you to conquer body and mind. Learn about motivation and behaviour change and how this affects your outcome

Recovery is as important as the training itself. Active recovery measures are factored into your training. Learn and strategize your recovery sessions to your lifestyle and goals. From cold water swims, self-massage and active recovery sessions, the program ensures you're supported through recovery phases to optimise your results.

 

Feel supported just email a private enquiry or comment in the Facebook group and i'll respond. Weekly group zoom check-in will enable us to visually connect, recap items, and provide a platform for the group to connect in a group coaching format. Miss the check-in? I'll record and send it through for you to watch later.

Still not convinced if online training is for you?

 

Here are some benefits:

  • Workout on your schedule; anywhere, anytime. . In this busy world, workouts should be a priority to keep your energy up, but you want to be able to do them around your schedule.

  • Fully Custom designed for you: unlike other hike fit programs, this program is specifically written for YOU. Taking into consideration your abilities, time frame, access to equipment any prior injuries, surgeries, and any other limitations, which minimizes the risk of injury and maximizes the possibility of success.

  • Cheaper than hiring a face-to-face Personal Trainer. A week’s fee on the program is little more than I charge for face-to-face for 1 hour PT. WHY? Because I can schedule the programs for you whilst I work around the washing (yes, so glamorous) but highly effective. PLUS you get the added benefits of fitness coaching and nutritional support.

  • You have complete access to me for the duration of the program for support; not only for fitness, but we can also discuss wellbeing, nutrition, nature, the best trails to hit – whatever you need, I’m here.

  • Count on me to keep you accountable. I want you to reach your hike fit goals as much as you do. Hiking adventures saved my life and I know that they will change yours too. I won’t sugarcoat things and call it as it is. You do the work and I’ll motivate you to stay on track.
