I personally know of only one person that undertook such a rigorous and extended physical preparation regimen.
Chris Kopczynski prepared for his successful ascent to conquer Mt. Everest by repeatedly ascending and descending Mt. Spokane in WA State, the closest mountain where he lived and worked as a general contractor. At the time his wife worked at the Eddie Bauer Store in Spokane.
I was fortunate to have known Chris, when he agreed to participate in a fund raiser for our Back Country Medical Rescue Team, narrating and presenting photos of his Mt. Everest conquest.
