No 483 - Preparing your body for an Adventure

Episode Summary

I cant image there are many hikers who at some stage or another haven’t complained about back, knee or ankle pains in some form or another and no doubt we have all just put it down to being just ‘one of those things’. Or maybe you are someone who states that you have weak ankles, but maybe have never thought to ask yourself how, why and when that became a problem for you. Some people train for the hills by just hiking, others mix it with the gym and maybe the rare few actually try yoga or pilates, however as good as all these are, they may not be hitting the spot as regards solving your particular problem, which is where Rowan Smith one of the very few personal trainers specialising in trekking fitness, come into play.
