  • At Fit for Trips, we don't plan your trip. We don't guide your trip. We don't go on your trip. We simply ensure that you arrive at your destination in the best shape of your life so that you are able to enjoy your adventure trip exactly as your tour operator intended it to be.

  • Our Story
    In 1998, Marcus was reminiscing about past adventures with his wife Pam when he realized that their extraordinary adventure travels had not only been due to unique itineraries and knowledgeable guides. They had also benefited from the self-assurance gained from a healthy lifestyle and being physically fit. With over twenty years of fitness experience and a passion for adventure travel, Marcus created Fit for Trips so that every adventurer could enjoy their travels as much as he has.
