Mountain Training Map

Mountain Training Map


Be ready to stand on top of the world, or a mountain, in 8 weeks! This training map is designed to prepare you for 1-4 day climbs and is adaptable to your starting fitness level. We suggest you complete at least one eight-week training cycle prior to your climb. If you are starting with a good foundation (you can comfortably do a three-hour hike) this program will progress you to accomplish a larger climb. If you start this plan without a lot of experience or training, you will want to add additional weeks to your training timeline. Simply scale back on the workouts and reduce the time recommended on the endurance days so you can build more gradually. This map is adaptable to any fitness level. Regressions are provided so that you can begin this plan and repeat it to build strength over time before your trip.
