Do you struggle with body and back aches after your hike?

hikerprep backache

Bringing too much water adds so much extra weight to your pack.
You pack bottles and bottles of water expecting to drink it all on the trail. The five short word mantra “just in case of emergency” scares you into packing even more.


Alternatively, you read a hiking article which tells you to bring “more than needed,” and so you do. At first you don’t feel it, but as you continue your hike, you back starts aching and you start to feel the weight of the water. Moreover, you’re thinking why didn’t you bring less water? What if I carried too little water?


Bringing too little water puts your life at risk
Dehydration dangerously sets in when you’re losing more body fluids through your sweat more than the amount of water taken in. This causes increased thirst, a dry mouth, headaches, dizziness, and dry skin. All of which could put your life or hike at risk.


Most advanced hikers would tell you to bring “just enough” water. Easy to understand, but how much is "just enough"?


How about bringing too little or too much food?

Our bodies need food on the trails especially when we’re hungry. But like water, bringing too much adds to our pack. Bringing too little leaves us hungry, tired, dizzy and sometimes with blurred vision. 


Others say the solution to bringing too much food is to bring less, but how much less exactly?

The "guessing" factor

HikerPrep a system for a beginner, intermediate and advanced hikers who want to improve your hiking preparation skills continually.

It shows you how to prepare for a hike and speeds up the process, without being overly general.


Being Specific Is Necessary

That’s because you need to know precisely how to best prepare for your particular hike. It’s not a broad checklist or template you can copy. Instead, it’s sound principles that you can take onto any hike.


However, principles in itself are not enough. Instead, included with the principles is a step-by-step method for best implementing it. Moreover, this method It takes away the “guessing” factor out of preparing your future hikes.


What is the “guessing” factor exactly?

On any given hike, you might bump into a fellow hiker. You might tell them your process of preparing for a hike and ask whether they thought you prepared adequately. You’d get their opinion, but it would vary from hiker to hiker. This variation leaves you confused.


You’re not 100% sure what is working and what isn’t. And you suspect you could vastly improve the results only if you had a clear set of benchmarks and guidelines.

A sneak peak of what's in HIkerprep

Preparing food and water is among one of the problems hikers have. But there are more. A lot more. In fact, after interviewing 260 hikers, they told us a lot more problems they had with hiking preparation. If you had a problem, odds we heard about it. That's why we created HikerPrep to be a complete simple guide to hiking preparation.

Know precisely how much water to bring
Hikers of all levels often struggle with knowing how much water to bring. Bring too much water, and you’re carrying too much weight. And yet, if you don’t bring enough water, you end up being dehydrated, dizzy and crashing during your hike. So how do we know precisely how much to bring? With HikerPrep, you’ll discover a simple rule of thumb for understanding exactly how much water to carry, and when to drink it for maximum hydration on your hike. Your body will thank you for it.

hikerprep food to pack

Bring the exact amount of food your body needs
Bringing excess food on your hike takes up weight in your heavy pack. The extra weight hinders your hiking performance over time and results in fatigue. So how do you trim down on food while having enough nutrition for you hike, and yet, bring enough food so you won’t go hungry? With HikerPrep, you’ll be able to quickly calculate the nutrition your body needs based on the hike you go on. From there you’ll be able to bring the exact amount of food for your hike. Say goodbye to a heavy pack.

How to choose the proper hiking pack
Most hikers bring the same hiking pack for all types of hikes: long, short, overnight, and multi-day. Carrying a knapsack too large will add to the weight on your back and can cause a backlash. Bringing a pack too small and you risk not bringing everything you need on your hike. So what’s the best size for your hike? With HikerPrep, you’ll know the exact pack size of a pack to bring for your hike depending on the length of your hike. Moreover, there’ll be items suggested that you’ll want to put in your pack so you can get your packing down to a science.

What hikers Are Saying About HIkerprep

The biggest benefit was discovering what I needed to do quickly prepare for any hike and spend more time on the trails.


I tried it and it worked. Without your help it would have taken me a long time to realize both the importance of hiking preparation, fitness and mindset.

I was stopped in my tracks with the fitness part because that's what I was interested in the most.


I just started hiking again this year and frankly was struggling with the whole hiking preparation part. The information was very insightful and in fact helped me see that my fitness can be improved in three ways not one (among others)!

My fitness level was not what was it was and the information helped me to see how to improve my fitness before my hike. The exercises I came up with are now being used on all my hikes, all because of your book Hikerprep!


While reading and figuring out my exercises, my enthusiasm just blossomed. It also taught me how to set expectations and have the right mindset before hiking. I knew it on a gut level but when I compare to other hikers, I could very clearly see how my mindset just really stands out.

I would highly recommend this e-book because it makes you hike in a totally new and helpful way.

The feature I enjoyed most was how to calculate trail difficulty


I have a very high trail completion rate when it comes to hiking, but I'm interested in tackling harder trails over the next year, rather substantially.

I purchased HikerPrep as I was certain that it would provide useful info about how to actually go about doing that without experiencing excessive body aches, stamina, and mindset frustrations.

HikerPrep confirmed some practices I was already using — showing me why it was working and how to make it work even better. It also gave me an easy to use checklist for preparing for any hike that I choose to do at any time of the day. I feel confident now when I go for my hikes.

Many hikers I know have all sorts of issues on the trails — this should take away some of those issues if not all of them.

There's basically no good reason not to buy HikerPrep. It's hands down the best $30 I've spent this year.

HikerPrep was designed with hikers in mind. Over 260 real hiker interviews were conducted to understand their real challenges. The outcome of the discussions produced numerous word-of-mouth tips that we have compiled into this book. It’s designed to be comprehensive, easy-to-read and helping hikers prepare in an orderly and systematic way. You won’t experience hiking preparation the same again.

Special bonuses (available with premium option)

Premium Bonus #1: 30-60-120 Fitness Calendar and Planner worth $27

A few years ago, my body was aching during and after my day hikes. This aching period only got longer as I continued to age. Then, I discovered a few exercises that helped me recover faster.

I took note of this and created the 30-60-120 fitness calendar for maintaining my body when I'm not on the trails. It helped me minimize the aches and sores after hiking. And now I can go on multi-day hikes.

We recently had this professionally designed and laid out. And when you order the premium package, you'll receive the 30-60-120 calendar and planner with your order.

By the way, I've had numerous people tell me this calendar and planner alone was worth the cost of their book (once it was set in motion).



Premium Bonus #2: Day Hiking Preparation Checklists worth $15

When I was first getting started with hiking, I created a simple quick-reference checklist to help me remember what to pack for each and every hike. And not too long ago, people started asking me for a similar checklist for their hikes.

So I went through my old notes, dug up that original worn-out, hand-written checklist, added a few more critical points and had it done up professionally.

Now it's one of my most sought-after resources - and because it's so near and dear to my heart, I only make it available from time to time.

So until I decide to take it down again (which could be tomorrow or next month, I haven't decided yet), you'll receive a copy of it included when you order the book today with the premium package!
