    The Chamonix Mountain Fit program is a fantastic resource for any mountain athlete. I am always in pursuit of improving my optimization of endurance and whole body conditioning. The mountain fit program provides a simple, clear, and balanced approach to getting stronger, improving imbalances, and supporting my endeavors of as an uphill athlete.

    Just started my first Level 1 session today, Excellent plan, really highlighting imbalances straight away! Look forward to see where the sore bits are tomorrow. Thank for the collaboration guys.

    Fantastic and comprehensive program. Great use of an hour.

    I’m relatively new to running, and the Chamonix Mountain Fit program has already transformed my experience on the trails. The intelligent progression and clear explanations illuminated what I was doing in my runs; my form improved immediately and I just plain enjoyed moving more. The series has quickly become an essential element of my training.

  5. Eric G (verified owner)

    I’ve been looking for years for a plan or workout to help me understand proper form to avoid back and knee pain while doing leg and core exercises, and finally found it in the Chamonix program. It clearly describes and demonstrates how to keep your core and spine aligned during training and I’ve begun to apply the concepts to my actual outdoor pursuits. The fact that this is focused specifically on the uphill athlete is a huge plus as it’s not just general fitness, but what I need to get ready for some big objectives. I also appreciate how well it’s produced: simple but clear audio and video with a second inset video for additional right vs. wrong form. The instructor has a nice easy way of leading you through a variety of exercises with clear and helpful instruction.

    I’m a 48 year old, middle of the pack ultra runner, and I wish I had this training years ago! For me, Level 1 is a challenging workout that leaves me feeling great (and a bit sore the next day). The helpful tips and positive encouragement from Neil make the hour go by quickly and the hard parts seems not quite so hard.

  7. William Hampton (verified owner)

    Workouts are a great mix of physical therapy mixed with a strength workout that focuses on all the things I hate to focus on by myself. As a military member, it’s a good supplementary program and awesome for travel based on how little gear it requires.
    Only request would be way to download the videos for use in areas without wifi when I’m traveling for work.
