FITNESS TRAINING

One of the most common asked questions is “Will I be fit enough?”

As soon as you book into the Royal National Park Fitness Adventure  you can get started with training.

Through booking into the adventure early and allowing time to train, those with a current introductory level of fitness will find this an achievable goal – provided you put in the training.

Here’s what you get:

  • Monthly group hike training (for local Brisbane participants)
  • Regular online Group Adventure Meetings for fitness motivation, hints, tips and Q&A sessions
  • Access to the Closed Royal National Park Fitness Adventure Facebook group

Monthly hike training is delivered in a group setting in Brisbane. Whilst this is optional, it is strongly recommended. Past adventurers tell us that Hike Training is great for three reasons:

  1. getting to know the others on your hike
  2. gauging your level of fitness
  3. boosting your fitness

The training program has been developed by Women’s Fitness Adventures, based on years of experience and qualifications in both the fitness industry and hiking in the outdoors.  

FRIENDSHIP

From the moment you book into the Royal National Park Fitness Adventure  you will begin to make new friends. It all starts with the training.

Monthly hike training is delivered in a group setting in Brisbane or online (via Skype) for non- Brisbane residents. Whilst this is optional, it is strongly recommended.

Past adventurers tell us that Hike Training is great for three reasons:

  1. getting to know the others on your hike
  2. gauging your level of fitness
  3. boosting your fitness

Once your payment is confirmed, there is also a closed Facebook Group Page that you have access to, whereby you can converse with your fellow hikers.

PRICELESS MEMORIES

Our multi day hikes are transformational. Some kind of “magic” happens with the group.

Whether it is the unconditional support, the team approach, the like-mindedness of your other Women’s Fitness Adventures C.R.E.W members or a combination of all of the above in a magnificent location, the weekend will leave you with lasting friendships and priceless memories.
