“In his book “Kissing Kilimanjaro”, Daniel Dorr states that to successfully climb Kilimanjaro one needs to have three full buckets: fitness, attitude, and altitude. Thanks, Fit For Trips, for filling my fitness bucket.
The program was well suited for one such as me who is not big on working out in the gym. The home version gave me the level of fitness I needed to climb the mountain. I never had to worry if my muscles would work for me…just focused on breathing!”
I’ll add that I described the Fit For Trips program to the group at the beginning of the climb. One of the members of the group said, “you trained for this?” Although she was very fit, she wished she had done the “right kind” of training because her legs were screaming by the end of the trip. She has since taken a keen interest in the Fit For Trips program.

Fit For Trips definitely worked for me. I really appreciated being able to touch base regularly with the staff. They helped me immensely. I have NEVER been in such good shape in my life. In fact, people have asked me how I did it!
I climbed the Western Approach Route and experienced no aches, pains or any other physical ailments on the trip. No doubt this was because I was completely physically prepared. I will definitely use Fit For Trips another time. And hopefully soon, as I am now addicted to adventure!

Fit For Trips is excellent. I followed the 3 month program scrupulously and am in the best shape I have been since I was in high school. It gave me the confidence so I was certain that if I was not affected by the altitude, there was no question that I would reach the summit. The altitude was not a problem and I reached the summit easily.
