Fitness Challenge

Stair climbing 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.
Always warm up your muscles and stretch before you begin.

  • Pick a tempo that feels right to you and stick with it. Once you get the steps down, you can begin working with a quicker pace.
  • Place your entire foot on the step each time you climb. Keep your arms by your sides or hold onto the handrails.
  • Keep a bottle of water at the top of the stairs so you don’t have to carry it with you. Have a snack available if you feel low on energy.
  • Listen to music! It will help propel you up the stairs.
  • Cool down. Take a quick walk and stretch major muscle groups.

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

MAKING THIS A FITNESS CHALLENGE? WORRIED YOU MIGHT NOT BE FIT ENOUGH? IS THIS A NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTION GOAL?

Whatever reasons you have to get fit for the Climb, we have resources to help!

WHERE CAN I TRAIN FOR THE CLIMB?

  • Practice the stairs inside the Aon - As an added bonus for those registered for the Climb, the Aon Center opens their stairwells to practice climbs! Get a sneak peak of the same stairwell you’ll be climbing on April 6th. Download the Practice Climb Flyer for more details. (the link to the flyer is still valid, just make the title bold so it stands out more)
  • Check out some of the Public Stairs across LA – Having trouble getting downtown to practice inside the Aon Center? No problem. Los Angeles is full of public stairs that you can train on. Check out this link for locations in your area.
  • Train at a near-by school stadium
