Prepper fitness almost inevitably gets brought up in survival forums and blogs. However, it is always treated as an afterthought. “I’ll worry about fitness after I get all my food/water/gear/etc. stockpiled.”
If past disasters have taught us anything, it is that we can’t count on our stockpiled goods to get us through. The best survival resource we have at our disposal is ourselves – which is why we should start looking at physical fitness as an integral part of disaster prepping.
There are a lot of great survival schools in the country. Some courses will give you a taste of how physically demanding survival is. However, most of us haven’t been tested in true SHTF situations.
So, why do so many unfit preppers think they’d survive alright?
