Do you dream of summiting Kilimanjaro?

Marcus, I am back from Kilimanjaro and I did make it to the summit. I cannot thank you enough for your fitness advice, which totally prepared me for what I needed to do and more. The fact that I live in New York with no hills and no altitude was not an issue because of the regimen you had me doing. Thank you again for all of your support! This was truly new territory for me and preparing for it physically was new. I trained according to the program and felt great all the way to the summit.

Created by fitness trainer and adventure enthusiast Marcus Shapiro, Fit For Trips leads the adventure travel-fitness industry with impressive - itinerary specific - resistance and endurance conditioning programs. Past clients will tell you that every trip begins with Fit For Trips...


In 1998, Marcus was reminiscing about past adventures with his wife Pam, when he discerned that their extraordinary travels were not exclusively the result of unique itineraries and knowledgeable guides. They had also benefited from confidence - self assurance achieved by applying specific training principles up to each and every trip-departue. With over twenty years of fitness experience and a passion for adventure travel, Marcus launched Fit For Trips in 2009 so that every adventurer could get fit enough to fulfill their travel bucket list. We ask for the opportunity to pass on our knowledge unto you.
