How fit do I need to be?
Your Outward Bound experience will be both physically and mentally challenging, with our longer adventures offering the highest level of challenge. Each summer adventure information page will provide you with a simple outline of the level of experience we expect you to have. For those that involve an exciting mountain expedition, you'll be carrying your personal and group equipment in a rucksack, which is provided by the centre. Having a reasonable level of fitness means that you'll enjoy your experience more and will have the confidence to try new things. However, having plenty of enthusiasm is equally as important.
If you're looking for ideas to help build up your fitness ahead of a summer adventure, our instructors have put together some guidance.
