Your Journey Starts Now

We want to be the best in the world at pre-trip engagement. All it takes to get started is to hit the button and book your trip.

Book early for more value

The earlier you book, the earlier you will receive Training for Trips’ individualised attention, and the longer you will have to prepare for your adventure. Seriously – Your Journey Starts Now.

We value connection

We plan to facilitate in-person training opportunities and pre-trip engagement to support your connection with other like-minded people in the Training for Trips community. We hope our journeys don’t finish at the end of your trips and that we can stay connected and continue to support each other.

We are adaptable

We know that not everything always goes to plan. Whether it is a couple of missed sessions or a minor setback we are available to work with you to fine-tune and adapt your program on the run. We want you to succeed and are with you for the journey.

We are comfortable with complex

Through our work in Professional and Paralympic sport we welcome complex presentations and are equipped to understand how your past injuries and/or medical conditions might affect your training and your trip. We can program for people of all ages and encourage diversity.

We use cutting-edge technology

You will receive your program digitally using training prescription platforms utilised in high performance and professional sport. We can modify our prescription parameters to fit with the technology you prefer to use, and the equipment you have available to you.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

"I have been fortunate enough to have been on two high performance camps with Justin and I cannot speak highly enough of them. Justin ensured that all members of the group worked together, teaching us the importance of being in a team environment. They were well organised, varied, designed for all age groups and levels and most of all they were designed to leave us with life long memories."
