Put Your Success To The Trek Test
If you’re feeling inspired to put your fitness success to the test, why not take on an adventure-based challenge? To make sure you receive the most from your time and financial investment take heed of these preparation tips.
Trek-prep tip 1:
Having well-fitted and appropriate footwear is of the utmost importance. Get your hiking boots from a specialist shop where the staff know what they are doing. Try on your boots in the afternoon when your foot has swelled slightly, as this will give you the best fit, and make sure you break your boots in well before your expedition; this will allow your feet to get used to the new boot and the new boot get used to you. Remember, the pain of ill-fitted boots can instantly ruin a $5,000 trek.
Trek-prep tip 2:
Your socks are an integral part of your foot care for the trek. Good boots and bad socks can still land you in a world of pain. Modern fibres, such as coolmax, are a winner. Many brands have socks specific for different types of trek. Take your socks with you when you go to try on potential boots.
