Averno is a self-improvement camp for men and women based upon a military structure. Through isolation and coexistence, recruits have the chance to enjoy a unique experience in which physical exercise is the main protagonist. All training sessions at Averno, challenge the participants to excel themselves. But not only that, they are also an opportunity to experience cooperation, teamwork, discipline and the consolidation of positive values. Under a strict regime, recruits spend a truly intense weekend testing their limits.
With an unbeatable location in Talayuelas (Cuenca), in an enviable natural environment and with excellent facilities that provide rooms with bunk beds and their own bathroom, Averno offers a unique opportunity to test oneself, to challenge oneself, to overcome limits and above all, for each person who participates, to get to know themselves in extreme physical and mental situations. In other words: Averno is a unique, exclusive and transforming adventure.
Physically active people of ALL LEVELS (low, medium and high) can participate in this camp. The only group that cannot participate in Averno are SEDENTARY people. The physical tests are adapted to the different levels of physical condition. Averno is ideal for people who train regularly, CrossFit practitioners, participants of popular races with obstacles, candidates for the state security forces, sportsmen and women in general and for all those who are related to and have experience in physical training.
AVERNO IS NOT INTENDED FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE SEDENTARY AND DO NOT DO ANY FORM OF PHYSICAL EXERCISE, NOR FOR PEOPLE WITH SERIOUS PATHOLOGIES OF THE LOCOMOTOR SYSTEM OR AT-RISK POPULATIONS SUCH AS HYPERTENSIVE OR DIABETICS, AMONG OTHERS. Regardless of physical fitness, all participants are recommended to undergo a medical check-up prior to the programme.

Do you dare?
At AVERNO we classify you into two groups: fit and unfit recruits. If you want to know if you are in good shape do the following tests in the video:
- 40 push-ups for men or 20 push-ups for women in less than 2 minutes. - 50 full sit-ups in less than 2 minutes.
- 50 squats in under 1.5 minutes.
- 8 complete and strict pull-ups for men or 3 for women.
- 20 burpees in a row without rest.
- Run a 5K in 25 minutes for men or 28 minutes for women.
If you don't manage to complete most of these exercises IT MEANS YOU ARE OUT OF SHAPE... but it doesn't matter! At Averno we adapt all activities for both groups, so if you're not a super athlete, don't let that stop you from getting ready because you will be able to complete the programme in any case.
