In my life, I’ve never found something more enjoyable than hitting the backcountry. Whenever I get back from an expedition, the only thing I look forward to is when I can go on the next one. Not many years ago I found myself struggling on these excursions, however, as I had gained some weight.
I knew hiking was good for my health, but I wondered if there was a way I could take my hikes to the next level. I wanted to seriously sweat, and burn a lot of calories while doing so. I spoke with a personal trainer at my gym who gave me some ideas on how I could make my hikes, and guess what? They worked. I’m now at my goal weight, and I credit a big part of that to the adjustments I made on my hikes.
