It might be a bit early for some of us to hit the trails, so before summer is in full swing, did you know you can start training for Kilimanjaro in a parking garage (or any tall building)? Stair climbing intervals are a great way to get your legs and lungs in shape for the climb. Mix things up by alternating legs or skipping steps, and be sure to add on your boots and day pack for full effect. TS staffer Ali even trained in a subway station!
