Looking at getting fit for mountain sport? Hiring a personal trainer is a great way to go if you want a structured approach to gaining optimum fitness in order to achieve your set goal. Although happy to work with anyone wanting to increase their fitness or lose weight for any reason, operating with outdoor goers is where our experience lays. We really understand the demands of hiking the hills of the UK and the Himalaya, what it takes to complete ultra marathons and fell races, and quite simply just to keep the body in a state of prime-fitness. A Personal Trainer is just that, they are someone who is there to help YOU succeed. You still have to put in the hard work, but at least you know you'll be doing it the right way - every rep, set, mile or calorie is working with you towards your goal.

What are the main benefits to hiring a PT?

Matt Le Voi - Trainer of Legends! After moving to the Lake District last October I booked Matt for a Scafell Pike walk during which we we talked about all things trail running, lakes and navigation. I confided in Matt that I had a place in the Lakeland 50 trail race but was worried about the self navigation and night sections. Well as someone who’d completed the Lakeland 50 himself I suspect he began to form a plan.
The next time I met Matt on the Scafell 5 peaks challenge group walk on which he “outed” me to the group as someone who WAS going to do this race! This led to an offer of some personal mountain specific training. How could I refuse? 
I’d trail run for years but I knew this was a massive challenge, since moving the Lakeland terrain was beating my body up and my confidence was very low. In fact there was a 90% chance I’d defer.

Training with Matt was the best decision Ever! Not only did he give me a tailored plan for this races specific challenges he also propped up my confidence enough to get to that start line.

Race day was just epic! The strength training definitely gave my legs more power and endurance throughout! Don’t get me wrong it was tough!! 
But I came through the finish with a smile on my face 16.39 hours!

If you’re thinking of taking on a mountain challenge I’d heartily recommend some training with Matt as he understands the specifics required to succeed. He’s also a bit of a laugh!
