Joe's Basecamp is a health and fitness club specialising in training athletes for outdoor and adventure sports, formed by strength and conditioning coach Joe Bonington. The company operates in Brookvale, on the Northern Beaches of Sydney, Australia.[1][2] The High Pike Trading Company was formed on December 31 2013 with Joe Bonington and Henry Talbot as co-Founders and on December 1 2014 Joe's Basecamp officially became the business title, Bonington and Talbot with equal shares.[3] [4] Chris Bonington and Rupert Bonington bought a 15% share between them in 2016 and personal trainer Massimo Trevisan bought a 10% share later that year. Talbot is a silent partner and the main investor while Bonington is director and co owner of the company.[5][6]


The club's focus has always been on Strength and endurance training for outdoor, wilderness, endurance and adventure sports, using fitness and adventure as a conduit for personal growth and change.[7] There is an altitude chamber to simulate the effects of high altitude for the simulation of genuine climbing conditions.[8][7]

Joe’s Basecamp have a close relationship with outdoor apparel specialists The North Face[9][10][11][12][13] High profile guests at the gym include Michael Hamill[14] and Caroline Pemberton.[15]


Joe's Basecamp are actively anti body image focused and encourage ability and performance over aesthetics. Since working with women training for bikini body challenges, where clients wanted to reduce to sub-10% body fat, Bonington realised he could use the facility to create the change in attitude needed in gyms and the fitness industry.[16] The gym's focus isn't on how athletes look but how they can use fitness and conditioning to cope in adventure[17][18] and other life goals such as bucket list fulfilment.[19] The facility intends to provide inspiration, training and opportunities for ordinary people to lead fitter, fuller and more adventurous lives.[20]
