Training For Kilimanjaro

Kilimanjaro is a non-technical climb, meaning it doesn’t require any climbing experience to reach the top. However, that’s not to say that it isn’t incredibly challenging to get to the summit.

This is a climb that will push you beyond your physical and mental limits; you’re trekking upwards, and in high altitudes for 4 – 6 hours a day, scrambling over rocks, through a variety of different ecosystems, climates, and environments. But there’s nothing more gratifying than taking that final step onto the crater rim knowing you’ve achieved something truly inspiring; nothing more rewarding than looking over the clouds at the top of Africa knowing you’ve conquered the world’s highest freestanding mountain.

First of all, before you start walking, swimming, running, or climbing those hills around the home, the most important part of your Kilimanjaro training will be training yourself to pack light. Kilimanjaro isn’t just about physical training, it’s also about mental training (which we’ll get to in a minute), and training yourself to travel light.

Because one of the biggest mistakes people make when climbing Kilimanjaro is that they pack way too much gear.

Progressive Resistance:

In essence, the gym section of our fitness program consists of regular and progressive resistance exercises with either free weights (like barbells and dumbbells) or free weight machines that are readily available in gymnasiums. The idea behind progressive resistance is that your exercise regime can be tailored to your age, physical condition, and strength, steadily progressing to a higher resistance level as you develop..

Safety Factor:

Progressive resistance movements could be customized to individual strength and fitness levels, therefore our fitness program is potentially safe. It is however essential that all of the exercises be performed correctly and that basic safety procedures are followed at all times. It is furthermore always a good idea to invest in reading material on physical fitness and to consult your local fitness instructor about performing each exercise correctly.
