We have compiled this list of frequently asked questions to provide you with all the information you need to get started on your fitness journey with Train To Hunt.
Is this Crossfit?
Train To Hunt is a fitness program designed for outdoor athletes with functional movements and a focus on endurance, while avoiding high-intensity compound movements like squat cleans and squat snatches to minimize the risk of injury during preparation for important events. Though similar to Crossfit, the program differs in its emphasis on endurance and cautious approach to certain exercises.
What equipment do I need?
The equipment required for the training program includes a backpack, sandbag, step-up box or cooler, light dumbbells or kettlebells, pull-up bar, and exercise bands. For the Strength Phase, which starts in November and lasts three months, additional equipment such as a squat rack, bench press, Olympic bar, and hex bar for deadlift are needed. *If you don't have access to this equipment, you may need to substitute certain movements or find resistance with other equipment/methods. We suggest signing up for TTH consultation.*
Is this something I can do at home?
Yes. With minimal equipment you can do the majority of this program and alternative movements/resistance.
How will this make me a better hunter?
Hunting is a test of endurance and strength. This program will have you preparing to walk long
distances over varied terrain while caring weight on your back and in your hand. It will also challenge you to shoot your weapon while under pressure from a variety of positions which will increase your field accuracy.
What if I am new to fitness/am out of shape/have an injury/am old?
This program caters to individuals of all fitness levels, ranging from beginners to advanced. The workouts are accompanied by comprehensive instructions and video links that demonstrate proper form and movement. It is advisable to avoid exercising injured muscles or joints and instead focus on uninjured areas and joints to prevent further damage, making the program suitable for all ages and abilities. *If movement is limited but capable we suggest signing up for TTH consultation.*
Is this program going to help me lose weight? Gain weight/muscle?
This is not a weight loss/gaining program. This program is designed to prepare you physically for the demands of the outdoors. If you stick to the program and eat a healthy diet you may lose weight and/or build muscle but weight loss/gain is much more complicated than just doing exercise. We can promise you that you will notice a significant physical difference in your strength and ability. Your body is unique, and your diet is what you choose - results may vary.

I’m turned off by Yoga due to personal or personal reasons, what's the deal?
Yoga improves both strength and flexibility, leading to enhanced mobility, lower risk of injury, and better balance. These benefits are crucial in outdoor activities such as mountain climbing, hunting, and fishing, where strong and mobile joints and controlled breath are essential. By incorporating yoga into your fitness routine, you can gain an edge that will help you become a more successful and skilled outdoorsman/woman.
When are events coming back?
The events will be back as soon as it is feasible for us to do them again. TTH is focused on the future and creating healthy, strong, and prepared hunters and outdoorsmen/women.
