Every session will have certain milestones to achieve to ensure we are maximising your efforts and progressing your fitness journey. Whilst each FITTREK session has consistencies our trainers do say that “every session is a different experience” with the variety in location, weather, focus of workout etc. We use the many opportunities that natural surrounds present such as such as stairs / hills / rocks / coastline / river crossings to maximise our FITTREK journey.

Once you’ve booked your spot you’ll be contacted by your FITTREK Trainers before your FITTREK session starts. You’ll be notified of the location and meeting place each week. (This is also listed on our website). Participants are encouraged to arrive at the meeting location 15 minutes prior to the session starting to ensure everyone is ready to start the session on time.
How fit do I have to be?
We find that many women underestimate what they are capable of and we encourage you to call and chat to one of our trainers if you have concerns about your level of fitness. Don’t forget it is our job to manage a whole variety of fitness levels and this is something we embrace. However, as a guideline, being able to walk 4km per hour for 90 - 120 minutes is a good base level. If you feel that you need assistance to reach this level we have a variety of resources to enable your fitness journey to commence. Please call us to discuss.
