TAMPA, Florida The only way to fully enjoy an adventure is to be physically fit to give it your all. With this in mind, tour operator Terra Incognita Ecotours has joined with fitness specialists Fit for Trips to create a training program that will allow travelers on the In the Realm of the Mountain Gorilla in Rwanda trip in May 2010 to prepare themselves physically for a walk on the wild side in the footsteps of Dian Fossey and the gorillas of Rwanda.

Sign up for the Rwanda trip by December 25, 2009 and receive a complimentary 8 week fitness program specific for the trip and additional support up until the day of departure; this is a $279 value. The personal training program has been designed specifically for this Rwanda trip by Fit for Trips, the adventure travel fitness specialists. Travelers can choose a home or gym training program, as well as choose from a beginner level program or replace their current workout with a trip specific one. Each fitness program combines resistance and endurance training that will prepare travelers mentally and physically for their expedition in Rwanda.
