Dominate the slopes and thrash through the power without jello legs at the bottom of the run by getting in great shape with Ski & Sport Conditioning.
Skiing is one of the most demanding sports – both mentally and physically. Whether taking a modest ski holiday or skiing 100 days per year, a properly planned ski conditioning program will increase enjoyment, skiing performance and help prevent skiing and snowboarding injuries. The heavy, deep snow of the Northwest tax the quadriceps, gluteals and hamstrings to the max, so it’s important to condition the large muscles of the upper leg, hips and buttocks along with some serious core training.
Our ski conditioning program emphasizes development of: musculature involved in the basic skills required for sports conditioning, skiing and snowboarding; increases stamina by using running and interval training; improves joint stability through conditioning of surrounding muscles; and improves flexibility. You’ll get in great shape and meet other like-minded ski enthusiasts.
Classes are led by veteran ski conditioning instructors: Lisa Ballatore, NSCA-CSCS personal trainer and spin instructor and Tim Sinnett, NSCA-CSCS certified personal trainer.
