I joined Altitude Athletic in October of 2021 in preparation to achieve my life-long goal to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro. My trip was scheduled for February - so I had to find a program that would really work for me in the time I had. I chose Altitude solely based on the name and premise of what they deliver - training in an altitude chamber to prep you for physical activity in similar conditions. What I didn't realize until after I joined, met the team and began my workouts is that this place is so much more. Like many other people, I've had bad experiences with gyms and personal training, and that brought more anxiety than just trying to achieve my goal of climbing. From the moment I walked through the door, I felt comfortable, I felt heard and I knew I was in the right place. My training program was so well developed, taking into consideration my current physical fitness level (mid-level at best), my goal, the time I had to give and my abilities. Josh (my coach) was amazing - he listened to me, he encouraged me, he challenged me - and I never felt like I couldn't achieve what he was asking (because he believed I could). The Altitude Team became part of my cheering section -encouraging me, supporting me and believing in me - sometimes more than I believed in myself. They became my family, and part of the journey to get me where I wanted to go. Josh was able to adapt my program so I could do workouts at home or the gym. In February I headed off to Tanzania, and successfully summited Mt. Kilimanjaro. What a journey that was - and I was never in better shape my entire life. Every step I took towards the top, I thanked Josh and team for the sweat, for the squats, for the encouragement, and mostly for the confidence. I wouldn't have changed a single thing about my journey, and am forever indebted to them for helping me achieve my dreams. Take it from me - you won't regret your time there - the facility, the team, the culture - it's like no other gym I've ever seen. You will love it.
