The army call this 'Tabbing' where as the Royal Marines call it Yomping. The word TAB actually comes from the phrase 'Tactical Advance to Battle' describing the method in which soldiers would travel on foot into battle with all their equipment to eat, sleep and fight.
Tabbing is very unique as it is a combination of muscle and cardiovascular endurance, burning far more calories than running alone and stimulating more muscle tone than a typical gym session. It also uses the largest muscles in the body, giving a higher calorific output.
The day will include practical tips for when you're out on the hills in order to enhance your fitness and endurance. It will also deliver a series of essential 'Know How' skills, hints and tips related to hill fitness.
This day is perfect for those who are participating in our events or wanting to increase their general fitness and know how or simply want to try something new and gain tuition from the best in the business.
