Ski Fitness Article



Thanks Brigid for the article, except I am not a huge death metal fan! Ha ha! We workout to dance music and everyone works just as hard!!!! My classes are for anyone and I have all realms of people taking the class and it has been an amazing learning and coaching experience for me. Everyone has gotten incredibly strong and we still have 2 weeks to go!

Ski/Snowboard week 4

Ski/Snowboard week 4

This week on Day 1 we focused on some strength mixed with some suicide sprints at the end to work on recovery. Day 2 we added some upper body and increased the leg blasters and continued with skier hops. This week I could tell a major difference in how the athletes were moving and how much stronger their core and recovery was. It has been a awesome coaching and helping so many different people and seeing them all get stronger in different ways not only physically, but mentally. I am learning a lot about different muscle imbalances and how so many people are so different. It has been really rewarding.
