"The programming did a really good job of mixing in the strength piece, which for me is the climbing portion. But then also, the fitness in your legs and lungs to be able to go out and go for a long day."
Professional Ice Climber Aaron Mulkey
With almost 300 first ascents, Aaron Mulkey has been ice climbing for nearly 27 years, and training online with us for the past few. In this video, he talks about how MTNTOUGH has fulfilled his fitness needs for excelling at ice climbing. This sport requires long hikes into the backcountry only to be at the base of your mission. After that long haul, you need to be 100% ready to get to work, or else serious consequences could be at stake. Having a solid foundation of both cardio and strength is critical.
