About

Fitness what?


We’re happy to share & introducing a unique concept for a healthy lifestyle called “fitness trekking”! Spend your Sundays not running on a stationary tredmill in a boring gym or binge eating while lying around like a couch potato. Instead, join us for Medium level monsoon treks in the backdrop of picturesque locations of cloud covered mountains! Each trek is bound to burn 1000+ calories!


Prabalgad, also known as, Muranjan, was originally going to be converted into a hill station. But due to lack of water, the British shifted their plan to Matheran.


From the base village, the view is serene, the meadows look attractive and the sudden drop of the valley with it’s distinctive “V” shape surprises one with its splendid views.


Climb upwards, going through the semi - steep crust where streams run parallel. Walk through the dense forests under heavy rains, and then in the end the whole place open up to the spectacular views of the twin fort, a geological wonder called Kalvantin Durg. Shout out to the fellow trekkers standing on the other side or simply sit and bask in the glory of a Sunday well spent.


Calculated Calorie Burn:
We will be carrying along a GPS based (non cellular) device to measure our ascend, descend and total disctance covered. This device will be worn by one person along with a HR monitor, which will help us calculate the average calories burnt by that person. The exact calorie burn count would vary upon the physical attributes of each person.
