Hope everyone is doing well.
While we continue to do our part to stop the virus spread our athletes should not forget to focus on that other spread, the one that comes with inactivity and leads to a loss in the general and sport specific levels fitness.
If your athlete is looking for an online fitness program a head coach colleague of mine and certified personal trainer, Laura Berry from Snow Valley, offers a great one.
Her program is for athletes from the age of 7 and up, including OCup athletes. The program covers strength, endurance, agility, balance, and some mental preparation as well. This training, although targeting alpine ski racers, will benefit athletes from almost any sport, as well as parents!
The ZOOM workout is approximately 40 minutes (Wednesdays from 4:00-5:00pm and Saturdays 9:30-10:30am) with videos at the end focusing on skiing, mental preparation, importance of sleep and nutrition etc. This weekly 2 session program runs to the end March and costs $180.00/person, the price drops with additional family members joining.
If you are interested or have questions, please contact Laura directly: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stay well, think skiing!
