Why should I join today instead of waiting?

It's time for you to take action. Simple as that. If you really want to be as fit as possible for your adventure/event/activity  then you need somewhere to get answers to all of your questions - especially the ones you don’t know you have yet. You need expert advice, support, community, and most of all... accountability!

Joe’s Basecamp is that place. If you really want to make a difference, the time is now.

What kind of training is Joe’s Basecamp suitable for?

We focus on on Mountain, Trail and Adventure based sports and events including Trekking, Thru-Hiking, Mountaineering, Ski-Touring, Bike-packing, Paddle Adventures, Polar Adventures, Trail and Ultra-Running and Adventure Racing.


These are the kind of Adventures and events that the majority of our members are doing or training to do. That said, much of our training philosophy is relevant to other types of activities, and just being functionally fit and healthy for living a great life and so we do have Basecampers who apply what we teach to just getting the most out of life.


I do not train bodybuilders, Bikini competitions or field sports.

I'm an absolute novice and very unfit, is the Basecamp right for me?

Absolutely - the Basecamp covers you from the very beginning of your fitness journey helping you get started wether you are an absolute beginner who has never done structured training before or a seasoned pro with experience under your belt.


And now is the perfect time for you to join the Basecamp; as not only do I have training that will take you through every step of your journey, but you'll also be able to get support and advice from within the community too, to help you on that  journey.

I’m already self-motivated and experienced in the gym, what can using the Basecamp system do for me?

Assuming you want to be focused on an outdoor or wilderness sport or activity as your end goal then the Basecampy can help you with fine tune your training, we are experts in training for this specialized area, we can keep you on the straight and narrow and make sure you are using the right training techniques at the right time, with the right volume and the right intensity.


This is certainly not a "beginner only" community - far from it! I've helped clients do world firsts, place on podiums, climb 8000m peaks and break course records in both trail runs and cycling, so there's plenty of expertise on offer that you're sure to benefit from in your continued journey.

What if I don't enjoy Joe’s Basecamp Online?

I know you will LOVE the Basecamp, however, if for whatever reason you're not 100% satisfied in any way and have completed the first phase of your training (13 weeks) I will give you your money back. I want you to succeed, and know that if you join the Basecamp and really put your heart and soul into it... you will see amazing results!

What happens if I decide to cancel my membership?

Obviously we'd love it if all of our crew stuck around forever - but we've worked with people for long enough to know that that's never going to happen! So, if you do decide to cancel after the initial 13 weeks, obviously we'll be very sad, but you'll be able to do so easily, just send me a message and we will cancel your programming

Once cancelled you’ll retain access to your program for any remaining time paid for, after which you’ll lose access to the program, calls, community and other benfits.

I’m not 100% sure that the Basecamp is right for me, do you offer a trial so I can test it out?

No we do not offer trials. If you have questions book in a call and I can talk you through the process LINK https://api.leadconnectorhq.com/widget/bookings/basecamp/15min

I'm NOT a hard core adventurer I'm just going on a commercial trek is this right for me?

This is perfect for you, this really is for the everyday person, who is juggling family, work commitments but has an amazing adventure lined up that they want to get the most out of

How Does Online Adventure fitness coaching work?

My Online adventure fitness training service is a comprehensive fitness coaching approach that involves my drawing on twenty two years of experience as a highly qualified strength & Conditioning and running coach, a trek leader, occasional mountaineer and a wilderness wanderer, to give you a program focused on adventure based sports  such as Trekking, hiking, mountaineering, polar travel, trail running or adventure paddling and Mountain bike touring.

  1. You are assessed to see where your fitness levels are now and how well you move.
  2. The strength and mobility components of the programs are tailored to be used in Gyms or using minimal equipment at home. The Fitness and endurance elements are designed to preferably be done in the great outdoors.
  3. I support you every step of the way with group zoom calls, message support and video analysis.

essentially what i do is give you a plan and the support to give you the confidence that you are doing the right exercise, the right amount in the right time frame for you to achieve your awesome goal and maximise your chances of a successful undertaking. If you would like to discuss how exactly the program works feel free book an initial consultation call with me now.

What level of support will I get?

Heaps!!! You get your strategy call, the easy to use app with all the videos and instructions, you get the weekly Zoom call, you get a 20 minute calibration call as and when its needed, you also get in app messaging and video review.

What happens if I have to travel?

No problem, this is the bonus of online coaching, its so flexible. sessions can be adapted, easily and if your travel is to disruptive we can just pause the coaching and we will resume when you return

Do you help with medical conditions/injuries?

As this is an online service I’m not in a position to diagnose injuries. I would advise that you see a suitable health professional prior to starting your training program. Medical advice is not a part of my service. To be clear, although my training programs work toward optimal health they are not intended as a replacement for personalised medical advice. However if you have the green light for exercise from your medical professionals, understand the nature of an ailment, injury or medical condition and need a coach who will work with you and your health professional to personalise your regime accordingly, you are in the right place.

Do I have to join a gym?

The answer is no BUT there is a caveat to that. You need to think of a gym as a tool. A commercial gym holds tens of thousands of dollars of equipment that can help you towards your goal... meaning you can spend your own money on other things rather than trying to replicate what is cheaper at the gym. You should be focusing on your workout NOT wether the place is not filled with your kind of people or not.

Saying that if getting to the gym is not an option, don't worry, Ive still got you covered.

What Activities and sports do you train people for?

People who are training for and NOT exclusive to, any of the following

Mountain Biking, Ski Touring, Cross Country Skiing, Trail Running, Fell Running, Mountaineering, Adventure racing, Obstacle Course racing, Mountain Triathlon

Will I lose weight/Gain Muscle on your program?

I won't take on a weight loss client for the sake of weight loss BUT if weight loss will help your goal I ma very experienced in that area, It's just that it only interest me in relation to your performance and your movement rather than what you look like in your swimmers.

With Muscle building in a word YES but its functional muscle as opposed to big slabs of body builder muscle. Believe me any weight you are carrying up a hill, hour after hour needs to be useful and contributing to your journey in the form of muscular endurance rather than detracting from it by burning extra energy and calories that you need.
