Here’s a superb story in non-traditional thinking in the very competitive fitness industry. Steve Silberberg’s Fatpacking specializes in weight loss backpacking – arranging trips and take their clients on wilderness hiking vacations aimed at improving fitness, lowering bodyfat percentage, and enjoying an unforgettable wilderness experience. Nice alternative to hiring a traditional personal trainer.
I’ve personally experienced these multi-day backpacking trips (Appalachian Trail hike in 2007) where you can quickly lose some serious bodyfat while walking up and down mountains all day with a 30-40 lb pack on your back, even when you’re eating whatever you want. You can do trips wherever there’s some local trails and campsites, a riverwalk or bike path in town, or arrange trips nationally such as Shenandoah National Park, Smoky Mountains, Arizona Trail, hike around Mt. Ranier or Mt. Hood, Alaska, Europe, Australia – the choices are plentiful!
As big as the fitness and fat loss industry is, numerous individuals are looking for a new and unique weight loss program for a strategy change to get some last bits of poundage off or a way to kick start a fitness program and get a quick success under their belt. Backpacking fitness is a superb strategic option to offer.
