Beginner Skater Series • 2m 17s
When it comes to skaters’ fitness, traditional fitness training can only take you so far. That’s because it takes having both a skating and fitness background to properly teach off ice training. That’s why an in-depth understanding of sport science, anatomy and body alignment can make all the difference, not only in helping you achieve your off-ice goals, but also preventing injuries from over pounding of the joints.
I know every skater is searching for that magical solution to help them land that axel, double axel or whatever other jump. Do I have that magical solution? Not in one session…but what I do have are a series of progressions and a step-by-step approach using both fitness exercises and skating movements to strengthen your jump positions, alignment and overall execution. That will help you achieve that successful jump.
If you are a skater who likes a structured approach with real trackable results, come give our program a try!
