Hike & Fly Italia (H&F), reference point of the Hike & Fly discipline, and Trail Running Movement (TRM), leader company in online trail running training, sign the strategic agreement to offer joint services dedicated to Italian Hike & Fly athletes.

TRM provides 15 years of athletic training experience in the disciplines of mountain running for Hike & Fly athletes, of all levels, who wish to improve the performance of the running/hiking section in training and competition. The offer includes 7 athletic training programs. From the analysis of the athlete’s potential, to specific tests performed on the field, to the development of running training sessions possibly completed with sports nutritional diets and the competition nutrition protocol.

In addition to the individual programs managed online by SNAQ CONI certified professional Coaches, Training Groups will also be available in some Regions, where it is possible to learn the techniques of using poles and managing uphill and downhill runs. In practice, TRM will offer a 360* preparation through the TRM Method already adopted by √Člite athletes who have participated in the Trail Running World Championships.

At the same time, Hike & Fly Italia will provide all the experience gained in flight preparation (Fly) and hike as well as in the management strategy of both short and long distance Hike & Fly races.

With this partnership“, says Marco Decet (successful athlete and President of H&F Italy), “we aim to offer Italian athletes an extra gear to compete at the highest levels both in Italy and abroad.

While, Marco Mori (President of TRM) reiterates “The future of athletic training in Italy passes through partnerships between the best professionals in specific disciplines and the creation of a network of experts who can make Italian athletes of all outdoor disciplines express their maximum potential.”¬†

Cristina Tasselli, (TRM Vice President), underlines the importance of multidisciplinarity, “We have understood that the best results are obtained through meticulous athletic training that is managed through the analysis of the athlete’s potential, the execution of specific tests and the interpretation of quantitative data. Nothing should be left to chance. The international competitive level is so high that even the single athlete, already experienced, needs to be supported by a team of experts who work in harmony and with innovative tools.”

The start of the partnership and the launch of the training programs will be illustrated in Cornizzolo (Lc) on Saturday 3 April 2022 at the Monte Cornizzolo AereoClub at 7:30 pm on the occasion of the Hike & Fly championship competition.
