Get Fit To Ski is a pre-season conditioning programme for snow sports. It aims to improve skiing technique and enhance performance while minimising muscle soreness commonly felt at the start of your ski trip. Get Fit to Ski will help you recover more quickly for your next day of skiing and help prevent ski injuries.
Why do I need to “Get Fit To Ski”?
Each year at Bend + Mend, we see people who plan to go skiing, but they are hindered by an injured knee or a chronic back problem or just general aches and pains. After assessing each individual, we carefully handpick several exercises specific to the individual’s needs with a more confident skier appearing as a result!
Time to prepare for snow sports is essential as strength and balance don’t happen overnight. It takes weeks to gain strength, and you need to make sure you are doing enough exercises to improve, but not too many to cause yourself harm.
