FAQ

What order should I do the programs?

We recommend you start with Elements, as it gives you a good foundational base to build upon. Typically we recommend the following order – Elements, Hike Strong, Uphill Endurance, Mountain Strength. If you experience knee pain when hiking, Mountain Proof Knees is good to start at any point, if you can do Elements first that is ideal.

If you are doing Everest Base Camp or Mt Kilimanjaro, ideally complete Elements first and then move on to the selected program.

Can I do these programs at home?

Yes! Mountain Strength is the only program that needs equipment that you may need to source, get creative or find in a gym (dumbbells, bench, barbell & rack, pull up bar, resistance bands or cable machine, TRX or suspension trainer)
