Our World

Our belief that training just for the sake of training is not enough. We enjoy our training. No, we love our training, the sweat, the tears, the effort, the sense of achievement, the challenge but we believe that our training is for a reason…. it is to live a life well lived to enable us to live a life rich with experiences and adventure.

Our belief is that every one of you has an Everest inside them… it might not be the Everest, it might be a challenge of any magnitude but what ever it is…. your first trail run, a Himalayan trek, The Kokoda Trail, whatever it is, if it is a genuine challenge and beyond your comfort zone, it is your adventure and you own it and it is our job to be the channel, the conduit and the support to see you smiling on the other side.

Some friends at work recommended that I tried Joe's, on the promise that it was a great community environment where the emphasis was on achieving personal goals - be that crossing a continent on foot or learning how to do a hand stand. It's now 12 months since I met Joe. He has indeed created an environment which, in contrast to my previous experiences, is extremely personal and inspiring. (And I've lost the15…

"The ‘Real Man Maker’…where the hell do you come up with this stuff Joe? That pretty much sums up Joe’s Base Camp though (formerly Joe’s Garage) – the variety and constant challenge is what I love about the place…every day it’s something different. Even after ~18 months of training there, I am still constantly doing and learning new stuff which is a massive motivation to keep up the training…it makes training enjoyable, particularly with Joe helping you to continually get results. Because of Joe, at 35 years old (I know, I look older), I’m the fittest, strongest and fastest I’ve…
