Physically – For all adventures it is recommended to do cardiovascular exercise 3 times a week for 30 minutes a day 8 weeks prior to your arrival at ITW, preferably with an incline. Also, we recommend basic core training will help prepare you for all movements. See physical training for a list of exercises.
Spiritually – A great book for preparation is Colossians that focuses on who Jesus is, what he has done for you, and what difference that can make in your life. Additionally, all adventures have gleaned insight from Death by Love by Mark Driscoll. ReNEW participants could read Desiring God by John Piper. ReCALL participants could read The Way of the Heart by Henri Nouwen and/or From Spiritual Slavery to Spiritual Sonship by Jack Frost.
