Winter fit

October 26, 2014

Winter is on its way and now is the time to think about getting ski fit before we step into our bindings.

After a long summer of perhaps not so energetic endeavours, the easiest thing we can do to start our get ski fit regime is to walk, instead of parking as near to the shop as you can how about parking about 400-500 yards away and walk after you have been around the shop and headed back to the car you could have clocked up over 1000 yards, that is nearly one kilometre! Which is really good.

For the tube users in London then how about using the steps and not the escalators, the same applies to high rise offices, you can try 3 or 4 flights of stairs before using the lift all these things help.

If you have a bicycle – great, oil the chain and get out and do some miles.

We are very lucky in skiing in that gravity does most of the work for us, so for us skiers strength in the legs is really important and any exercise to strengthen them is to be encouraged.

Take care when exercising and don’t over do it, I want to see you on the slope and enjoying it and not slowed down by a pulled muscle or worse.

Good skiing
Howard
