John Little and Jermaine Gonzales, of NeverStopClimbing.com, are taking on a pretty courageous task. As they ask on their website,
Can two horrendously out of shape guys get fit, learn how to climb, and tackle some of the world’s highest mountains?
We are about to find out.
Hopefully most of us who signed up for Summit For Someone aren’t “horrendously” out of shape, but if you need a little inspiration, check out John’s piece, “Mountain Climbing Fitness for Flatlanders.” John’s lost 95 pounds since last June, and he’s got some great firsthand experience finding ways to get in shape from the not-so-mountainous locale of Houston. Like me, John’s a big fan of stairs.
