Our training goal is to get you physically and mentally prepared to face the climb with more confidence. The climbing goal will be to perform consistently throughout the adventure. Fitness for mountaineering requires a high overall level of physical conditioning. Both cardiovascular and motor fitness are needed to climb at varying levels of intensity and to navigate challenging terrain, often while carrying a loaded pack and at high altitudes.
Training goals are critically important and allow you to perform better at higher altitudes and enjoy the entire adventure. We suggest that you examine the physical requirements of the climb you are approaching and work on your fitness in different levels. Click here to Learn more about Trip Grades and choose what’s best for you!
Establish a timeline for your training program and focus on specific conditioning for better results. Along with your workouts try and add hikes and climbs in the outdoors whenever possible to get more comfortable with different terrains. Sound fitness gained through a well-guided program is the only best way to ensure a safe and successful adventure.
Mountaineering Fitness and Training
It may also be helpful to break down your training timeline into a number of key phases. These are:
Phase 1 : Base physical fitness
The first phase of getting prepared for your climb is to focus on your base fitness. You should incorporate a fitness routine that focuses on both cardiovascular fitness and motor fitness training. For those who are not used to intense workouts this phase will help you to kickstart your training. Remember that consistency is the first most important factor in achieving any goal. Combine your basic fitness regimes along with running and stair climbing. You are now ready for outdoor adventures.
Phase 2 : Training specific for the climb
Once you have established your base physical fitness, you will need to train specifically for the climb. Depending on the difficulty and intensity of the climb, add advanced workout sessions combined with uphill training. Try and do the same fitness routines with some added loads. Strength training combined with cardiovascular and motor fitness will help with the overall conditioning. This will take your workouts to the next level and help gear up for the mountaineering challenge ahead.
Phase 3 : Outdoor Training
Nothing can replace training in the real outdoors. In the final phase of your training, you should be attempting climbs which are similar to the ones you are approaching. It is great to test your endurance outdoors. This gives you a great edge in preparing for conditions similar to the ones you will encounter during your expedition. It isn’t always possible to find similar terrains close to where you live, but it is best to find a hike as close to the climb as possible. This is the best way to test your climbing gears as well.
Training goals and timeline
Working out for at least 5 days in a week is the best way to get your body physically prepared for the climb ahead. Regular and consistent training always gives the best result and keeps you highly motivated. Make sure that you workout regularly and also give enough time for rest and recovery. Keep it balanced and have a properly planned fitness routine and never overdo exercises to the point of injury. While 2 to 3 months is a good amount of time to train, starting your training earlier allows more time to adjust and prepare.

Excellent team to plan your Himalayan trip with. I’m happy to climb Mera Peak with such amazing and friendly Sherpa guides. They are very organized, efficient and friendly. Awesome support and great patience. Thanks for making my very first trip a memorable one! Hope to see u guys soon again.
Did the Island peak climb with Protrek adventure. Undoubtedly the best company to book high altitude climbs. Their lead guides & sherpas are highly skilled, which made a huge difference in the expedition. Infact they motivated me during the summit push, without which i wouldn’t have made it to the summit. Thanks Phurba and Sandeep, you guys are awesome! Equipment and camp facilities are excellent. Support staff were friendly and helpful. Highly recommend Protrek for trekking and expeditions in Nepal.
I booked the Island peak expedition with Protrek adventure, and they customized the itinerary for my buddy and me. They included the Everest base camp too in the plan – which was cool, and the service was extraordinary. Tea houses booked for our stay were top class accommodations, and the food was excellent. Our local guide Phurba Sherpa was very helpful and handled the trip well. I was quite impressed with the camping facilities and the equpiments provided to us. Commendable efforts at such high altitudes. Turned out to be one of the best trips I’ve ever had to Nepal.
Very professional company, provided all the details well in advance. The guide and materials provided are superb which resulted in a successful ascent of Island Peak.
Fast and good service, they provided a super sherpa for us (kancha nuru sherpa) the sherpa had also done everest so more than enough experience. Next time we will definitely book with this organization again! Keep it up!
Snelle en goede service, ze verzorgde een super sherpa voor ons ( kancha nuru sherpa) de sherpa had ook everest gedaan dus meer dan genoeg evaring. De volgende keer boeken we zeker weer bij deze organisatie! Ga zo door!
I went on the Island Peak climb with Protrek last spring and had a great time. For the trip to Nepal, I was travelling with my climbing partner. We had an excellent experience hiking with this fantastic group of people. They were extremely professional, and their expertise was evident in their work. The camping facilities were excellent, as was the food. Even at such high altitudes, our camp staff did an excellent job and served us delicious food. Phurba is a knowledgeable and approachable guide. Thank you for guiding us all the way to the summit. It was a truly special moment at the summit. This was my first high-altitude adventure, as well as my first 6000-meter peak. I’m glad I did it with the best team. Thank you so much guys! See you soon on another incredible adventure.
Very pleased with the company went with these guys to Island Peak
