Bakcountry fitness and nutrition lab is more than a blog. It is a community of outdoorsmen and -women who are dedicated to improving their quality of life. From being exposed to fit individuals all my life, I realized not many people recognize the athleticism and conditioning necessary for hunters, backpackers and backcountry people to do what they do. These individuals traverse intense terrain and endure strenuous mental and physical challenges that most will never experience in their lives.

Bakcountry athletes train with a purpose. They train harder than most because the terrain and environments they put themselves in are harsher than most. They take care of their bodies and minds because they know a breakdown, mental or physical, won’t allow them to perform in the backcountry, where it matters most.

Bakcountry fitness and nutrition is dedicated to those who spend their time in the wilderness. We provide fitness programs and nutrition guidelines to keep our outdoor athletes in top condition to chase those goats over mountain tops and elk through deep valleys, or do whatever it is that you choose to do outside. Welcome to the Bakcountry tribe, I look forward to training with you.
