All thanks to the weekly single workout:

Monotraining method for ultratrail


 Many years have gone by now since that indelible 2005, when alone in my area (Saluzzo), I had begun to prepare myself for the long journeys on foot, a specialty that I would later begin to call ultratrail ... Today there are many fans of this adventurous and hard sport; I was happy to have helped to make it known to people, thanks to some 'old' articles that appeared in local newspapers ... The rest is history as they say and I owe everything to the technique of weekly Monotraining for never having injured myself in any way in the my long career in this young discipline!

I finally decided to create this page about my great passion for ultratrail. A specialty that indelibly marked me in 2006, with my participation in the first Cromagnon ... A real challenge for me was that race, since I had no support or advice on which to base myself regarding the right preparation, apart from my knowledge professional in other sports fields ... With difficulty I was able to finish it. Now I can consider myself a 'mature' ultratrailer and eager to pass on the experience accumulated over the years to other athletes, eager to start or improve their performance.

Being able to cover extreme distances on foot in short times is within the reach of all those who really want it!
