Join our more challenging walks on Mount Wellington Kunanyi, or Meehan Range just east of Hobart.

I’ve chosen for very special walks each 3 to 5 hours of duration.

Be prepared for waterfalls, caves and glorious highpoints and sensational company while we explore some of the lesser known spectacular half day walks around Hobart

Yes, it will be hilly, And you’ll get a little bit puffy. But hey the view will be very much worth it.

Reasonable fitness required $49.50 a session

Friday Night Hiking Fitness



Our 75 minute hiking fitness sessions are on local suburban bush tracks in Lindisfarne and Geilston Bay. Learn to love your local green patches and discover 101 “cut throughs” or – little know side tracks and explore your community.  There’s always a hill – so you will get fit for longer walks with these short sharp sessions.  An unexpected benefit of these walks is they make you leave work on time on a Friday – you walk and talk and are home in time for dinner – totally refreshed and ready to start your weekend.

Bring your:

  • back pack and coat
  • hiking poles if you have them
  • and a drink

We will learn how to use relatively short tracks to gain the fitness you need for longer adventures. This is an all weather event, and the walk start location will change from time to time, but we will always be in Lindisfarne or Geilston Bay.


Fridays 5.15-6.30 pm x 6 weeks

Our 75 minute sessions Jo will get you hike ready for bush walking in Tasmania and over seas. Whether you need fitness for hiking long day walks like a Tasmanian Iconic Walk or multi day walks, at sea level or at altitude Jo Cordell-Cooper will help you improve your hiking fitness

Not local but need a preparation for hiking program?

Jo has trained people for Kokoda, Overland Track (Tasmania), Milford Track (NZ) Camino (Europe) and has trained herself for Everest Base Camp (Tibet), Annapurna Circuit (Nepal), Mount Kinabalu (Borneo), Milford Track, Routeburn Track, Tongariro Cross, and Stewarts Island (New Zealand), Lares Valley to Macchu Picchu (Peru).  She has also taken part in and trained others for Coastrek in Melbourne Australia.  Speak with Jo to receive a training package to suit your lifestyle, a tailored approach to meet your level of fitness and considers the hike you are interested in.


Over a 6 month period jo supervised my training for an endurance walk.  As I have a fairly unique body the goal of walking 25 km in a team was initially daunting.  But bit by bit I got stronger and more capable.  I learned how to prepare mentally as well as physically, and nutrition on the day and leading up to the event was addressed too.  Having this goal inspired me, and I loved having a challenging event to look forward to knowing I was well prepared for it. If you have a challenging event coming up I highly recommend Jo to get you HIKE READY!
