Our Concept

fitVenture are outdoor fitness tours based on functional fitness, H.I.I.T. and endurance training. Invented in 2014 by the internationally experienced personal trainer, Marcel Schade, all tours are being conducted by a qualified personal trainer and a local guide. Together they combine their expertise and lead you away from the city to the impressive scenery of Australia's national parks. Dive into the nature: bush walking, physical exercises in the stunning nature. It is about fun, adventure and teamwork!

The extraordinary about fitVenture is the combination of fitness and adventure: there is no controlled workout routine. It is up to you if you push yourself to the limit. We use natural “equipment“ like trees, stones and our bodyweight for powerful workouts. You never know what comes next...

Thanks to the accurately conducted track selection by our knowledgeable local guides you will discover particularly beautiful spots apart from the well known routes. You will experience Australia's nature in a very special and individual way.

A unique experience in the nature, stunning lookouts and challenging functional workouts - this is fitVenture!

Leaving the city behind


Fitness training in a completely different way: out of the city and (back) into the wilderness!

Apart from city skyscrapers, hectic lifestyle, cramped gyms and the usual bootcamp
routine fitVenture offers you the chance to be active and to connect with nature.


fitVenture is suitable for almost everyone. The versatile and challenging workouts are designed to consider different fitness levels. One physical condition is that you must be able to walk/run for 5 hours. Find more requirements: FAQ.

The fitVenture activities offer you the chance to challenge yourself and to hit your personal limit. If you are a casual sportsman, gym member, CrossFitter, Tough Mudder etc you are very welcome to test your skills!

Your local guide

In 2004, he set up Australia's first social activity network. Since then, Jelle has developed, lead or participated in more than 1000 activities - anything from contemporary art gallery tours and pub crawls in Sydney and Melbourne, to kayaking and bushwalking weekends in many national parks and cycling trips through the country sides around all capital cities of Australia.

Over the years he has accumulated a wealth of knowledge about Sydney, and its natural and cultural gems - a knowledge which allows him to deliver our fitVenture participants unforgettable experiences of learning and discovery.

  • I am running for 20 years now and have to say that the tour in the Blue Mountains was one of the best tracks to run. The combination of personal trainer and tour guide was perfect. All senses were challenged in a wonderful environment. The workouts were demanding but doable. I also got important tips for my own training routine and since then I improved my running performance. For my next vacation in Australia I am looking forward to training with Marcel again. mtfbwy Ingrid

  • An awesome experience! I did fitVenture after having PT-sessions with Marcel for a while. The group was fun and I really can't remember the last time I climbed a tree 🙂 This workout in the woods was a new challenge for me and such a good feeling to scratch the limit. Thanks to the guides. Highly recommendable and definitely the new highlight of my workout routine! *****
