Training & Resources

Step Up to the Challenge! The Fight For Air Climb is a great way to challenge yourself physically. Different from other events, the Fight For Air Climb is a vertical road race to reach the top. Stairclimbing is a great sport that improves the fitness level of each participant and burns more calories than walking or running. To climb successfully, the American Lung Association strongly urges all participants to train before embarking on the ascent.

From experienced athletes to first time stairclimbers, the Fight For Air Climb is a challenge that everyone can meet!

Like with any athletic activity, you need to find the elements that work for you. To help get you started, here are some tips:

  • If you are new to climbing stairs, then start slow and build up your tempo.
  • To reduce the risk of injury, place your entire foot on the stair each time.
  • Experiment with climbing techniques. Check out our climb training guide here. For example, some climbers prefer to keep their arms by their sides, while others prefer to use the handrails. You can climb one or two steps at a time, depending on your comfort level. Use your training climbs to find what works for you.
  • Consider a light snack before the climb begins. This will help you maintain your energy level without feeling sick.
  • Many climbers like to listen to music while they climb.
  • Post Climb take a couple of minutes to cool down and stretch. This will help keep your muscles from being sore.

As always, be sure to consult your physician before beginning any new fitness routine.
