Training Info & Programs

Training for your next (or first) backpacking or hiking trip is extremely important for your own enjoyment and to ensure that you will finish your trip a happy camper versus a death march participant.

Just Roughin’ It has an Exercise Science educator on staff that has been active in the industry for over 14 years and has trained athletes, marathoners, hikers, triathletes, and recreational exercisers of all ages – so pretty much everyone. We know what it takes to get physically prepared for a very active adventure tour, and we also know that you can push yourself to limits that you never thought possible if you really want to. Remember, you prepare by doing, not spectating.

Here are some training tips and articles written by our Exercise Science educator! The one about kettlebells is my Grandma’s favorite!

Training Programs

We have a few options available for training programs, from those who need “a monkey on their back” to the group that just needs some direction. These programs are designed by a certified fitness educator with 20 years in the fitness industry, 13 years and counting as an adjunct professor in Exercise Science at Mesa Community College and 12 years as a hiking, backpacking and climbing guide.

Just Roughin’ It currently only offers training consultation and builds training programs.  We will begin offering in-person training by the end of 2019.
