Fitness

We are here to support your Climb Snowdon day and help you achieve your goal safely and enjoyably. But in order to help us help you – please arrive prepared and ready for a full day’s walk in the mountains.

Snowdon does not offer a casual stroll on smooth, undulating terrain – Snowdon is 1085 metres above sea level and has steep and rocky sections and paths.

It’s beautiful, dramatic and exciting! There are times where you may need to use your hands to steady yourself on certain paths and even the Llanberis Path (the ‘tourist path’) is notoriously steep in a couple of sections. The mountain is rocky underfoot and will challenge your thighs, calves, feet, ankles, back, breathing and brain at times!

Please bear this in mind when preparing for your walk and think about the following:

  • PLEASE follow the Kit List and bring ALL items listed with you
  • Always ask us any questions you need - that’s why we’re here!
  • Practice walking on steeper ground up AND down - find your local hill or make
    some visits to areas at weekends
  • Use a running machine or stepper on a steep incline or resistance
  • Plan in longer walks at the weekend - with your backpack on
  • Cover longer distances when on flatter ground - to build up stamina
  • Practice using trekking poles (at least once) before your Climb Snowdon day
  • Always take the stairs and climb up and down them as much as you can!
  • Carry on building upon your cardiovascular fitness (swimming, walking, running, cycling) as
    well as building tummy strength to support your back
  • Focus on developing muscle tone and strength in your thighs, bum and back to help support
    your knees and avoid injury...and STRETCH these muscles regularly
  • SEEK ADVICE from a qualified professional before embarking upon a new exercise regime
