Strength & Conditioning
Commences Tuesday 11 August 7pm
12 Week Program (Broken into 3, 4 week cycles ) All Levels Welcome
Up to 3 sessions per week
The Program is $450 +GST (total 36 sessions) or $160 per 4 week cycle (12 sessions)
Class sizes are strictly limited.
Main sessions are Tue and Thur 7pm, with optional 3rd session various days of week/weekend both early morning and evening. If you can't attend a Tue or Thur 7pm, we can likely accommodate at other times.
The goal of the program is to have all participants develop functional strength, agility, balance, coordination and power specific to the demands of Boarding / Skiing.
The program consists of a cross training program tailored for the slopes and is lead by a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist/Personal Trainer, supported by a Kinesiologist and includes input from a local, Provincial level competitive Snowboarder whom also coaches at Grouse Mountain and Seymour.
Whether you’re ready to slay the powder days or your time on the hill is spent crouched over little ones teaching them the ways of winter, correct cross-training will get you in the best condition to check off these goals and have you dominating the slopes this season. Whether the run is green or black, Gravity can get you there.
During the course we will apply a periodized approach to meeting the biomechanical demands of Boarding/Skiing and will cover:
- Leg Training (Strength/Power and improved knee stability and hip conditioning)
- Core and Lower back (strengthening/improved stabilization)
- Balance (fall/injury prevention - use of plyometrics to also develop speed, agility and power)
- Upper body (Improved joint mobility, increased shoulder stability and wrist strength)
- Mobility and Flexibility (Correct and resilient function of joints and muscles; conditioning for tendons/ligaments).
A bit more on Injury prevention:
"Skiing and boarding injuries are a huge phenomena and being proactive to make sure one’s season isn’t cut short should be a good motivator. Factors like strength & mobility are essential to produce the right amount of force and movement, and a stable range of motion is the only thing saving you from injury in a hard tumble. And the only thing saving you from hard tumbles is top notch endurance to keep you sharp all day long".
