At the heart of Trek & Climb Fitness lies a profound passion for exploration, adventure, and the mountains.
Founded by Stuart Ritchie, a certified personal trainer and lifelong mountain enthusiast, the mission is simple – to share the awe and fulfilment that comes from conquering summits and embracing the beauty of nature, and having the fitness to match it.
My journey began as a young 16-year-old, standing amidst the high peaks of the Andes. It was there, surrounded by the beautiful mountains, that I discovered the love for trekking and the exhilaration of true adventure. That pivotal moment ignited a lifelong dedication to the mountains, and commitment to inspire and guide others towards their own summits of achievement.
Trek & Climb Fitness is more than a coaching service; it’s a platform for success. Drawing from personal extensive experience, I craft personalised training programs that empower aspiring adventurers to embrace their full potential. I carefully tailor each plan, blending proven methodologies with a dash of my own mountain specific training, ensuring you’re not just ready for your expedition, but also able to really enjoy it.
My approach is deeply rooted in individual connection and engagement. I believe that every adventurer’s journey is unique, and that’s why we work together through calls and check-ins to make sure you’re ready. Through constant communication, guidance, and unwavering support, I am with you at every step of your climb.
