Welcome to Regina’s Meet the Mountains Technique!

Stop Huffing and Puffing up mountains!


Welcome to Regina’s Meet the Mountains Technique! I’m so excited that you received this opportunity to learn HOW to walk up mountains with ease! Discovering this easy technique after struggling up dozens of mountains by sheer will power, turned my climbing from dread to happy – or at least neutral – anticipation!  What surprised me is what a big difference it makes to pay attention to two simple aspects of walking up a mountain.

 My breathing rhythm
My stepping rhythm

Putting those two things together gives me unlimited options for finding an easy pace that I can maintain – without even stopping – all the way up a mountain!  Try it yourself after watching my video and/or listening to the audio.  Both are recordings of live sessions with women longing to stop huffing and puffing up mountains!

This page outlines the four steps of your journey to Meet the Mountains!  Enjoy!

Step One: PrepareStep
Two: Watch
Three: Listen
Step Four: Practice and Journey Forth

Here’s what Diane said after using Regina’s Meet the Mountains Technique:

“I am so thankful for Regina. She taught me her “Meet The Mountains” technique during a phone call coaching session. It was really easy to learn and she provided clear instructions as I practiced doing it over the phone. She has such a comfortable, easy-going nature. Since our phone call, I have used the technique several times during my training and it has come so naturally. I find myself just counting and doing the rhythm as if I have always been doing it. I am training for a hike on the Appalachian Trail. I can’t wait to get to the mountains and try it out. Thanks again Regina!”         -Diane Gilmore
