Chase Tucker

Certified Strength and Conditioning Coach

Chase is an avid hiker with over eight years of experience as a certified strength and conditioning coach. In 2012, he founded Base Camp in Australia, which operated as a gym and mountain training camp to prepare Australians for overseas treks and climbs.

To reach a wider audience, he’s now expanded Base Camp to include online programs as well as an active YouTube channel, called Chase Mountains. With a background in solving lifestyle-based movement issues like painful knees and tight hips, his goal is to enable people to stay free of pain and injury while hiking, skiing, and climbing well into old age.
