How does an Ascender train?
"It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare, it is because we do not dare that they are difficult"
- Catherine Manianga
Founder of The ASCENT
The Ascent isn't just designed to condition you physically to race, it is designed to help you become a better version of yourself.
Training to be an Ascender means taking a no nonsense approach to life and taking it back to the basics. It means making a habit of breaking habits, getting active and committing to achieving goals no matter how difficult they may seem to achieve.
THE ASCENT Training (TAT): Building A Better YOU
TAT is an official training program.
The ASCENT race is tough, but you are tougher,
especially if you but you're not one of those people, especially if you take our TAT fitness program. Whether you have just discovered the athlete within, or are an established competitor, TAT can give you the physical and mental capacity to take on whatever challenges are thrown your way, on and off the course.
The body weight-focused workouts are varied, novel and typically conducted in a group. In a TAT class, you bend, crawl, carry, climb, hang, jump, lift, lunge, pull, push, run, sprint, squat and twist… exactly what your body has been designed to do for over millions of years
