Do I need to be really fit to do this?

No, but some fitness would help. Training on stairs will also help your muscles get used to the idea of stairs BUT depending on your venue, there may be course options to suit your fitness levels. If you’re after a taste of Stadium Stomp without the stress of conquering the whole course, do our short course (excludes GABBA).
