Quotes From the Show:

“The biggest problem with these 15-20 minute workouts is that people think that that’s going to get them in shape in less than two to three weeks to get onto the mountains to enjoy themselves.” –James Breese

“You need to be efficient in your movements.” –James Breese

“If anyone’s about to go skiing or snowboarding or do anything else in the mountains this year and you’ve only got a finite time, the best thing you can probably do is put a weight vest on, and go for some serious, serious hikes.” –James Breese
