This post is about the terrible earthquake in Nepal. It’s about what we are doing to try and help a little and also why we are throwing our weight behind this cause.
Firstly let me go way back, way way back before I was born.
Back in 1960 my father Chris Bonington climbed his first Himalayan peak, Annapurna II. At just under 8000m it was the first of 19 Himalayan Peaks.
I’m Joe Bonington, most of you guys know me already. I'm a Strength and Conditioning coach, a personal trainer, a trek leader, a lifestyle coach, the bucket list coach, and the co-owner of Joe's Basecamp.
As a coach, as a father and as someone who loves life and all this amazing world has to offer, it really saddens me
I'm very proud to announce the official opening day of Joe's Basecamp by one of the world's leading mountaineers, Andrew Lock 9:30am Saturday 7th March. We believe we have built a truly unique experience in fitness, training and encouraging people to grow by getting out of their comfort zone.
On April 30th 2013 Gareth Andrews, a Sydney based Doctor and member at Joe's garage Gym reached the Magnetic North Pole. He had travelled 23 days across the ice, travelling a total of 600Km whilst dragging a 100Kg sled. Both Gareth and his team mate Richard Stephenson, a doctor based in New Zealand had come to Joe for specific strength and conditioning programming and coaching for their adventure.
