GO TO THIS PAGE FOR THE WINTER SPORTS CONDITIONING PROGRAM FOR 2016

Skiing and Snowboarding demands a lot from your body. Winter related injuries from sports are the most common.

During the Vail Vitality Center’s new injury prevention classes, we will not only work on building strength, but also, and perhaps more importantly, correct movement patterns. Correct movement patterns are very important to overall fitness.

During an extended daily warm up, we will introduce movements designed to stimulate muscles, and also stimulate your brain. Teaching your brain to communicate effectively with your muscles, and enhancing the neural pathways by which this communication occurs, is the foundation of good movement.

When you can move well, you will be able to perform better in the gym and on the hill. Strong, correct movement translates into reduced risk for injury and increased strength, which go hand in hand to improve performance and reduce the chance for injury.

Ski and Snowboard Winter Conditioning and Injury prevention program for 2015

Skiing and Snowboarding are both very physically demanding sports, as well as sports that have a high risk for injury. By taking part in our Ski and Snowboard Winter Conditioning program, we will not only put you through the best exercises to increase your performance, but will also teach you about your body and how to prevent injury on the mountain. You will enter and end your season with a durable, sustainable body that can withstand the conditions of the mountains throughout. Take time to learn Olympic style programming that you can continue to use year round.

Starts October 12 through November 9th 2015.

(if you missed the start of the program call us and we will make accommodations to help you get started-even if it’s a little late! drop in are welcome or a private instruction package)   970-476-7960.

The Vail Vitality Center’s ski and snowboard conditioning and injury prevention program is designed to pinpoint weak patterns of movement and strengthen those specific areas. Many people jump into programs with little or no understanding of how their body moves.

A common consequence of training incorrectly or over training is the body responds well during pre-season preparation, but is worn out from misuse and breaks down after the season begins. This specialized program teaches participants how to bring the body into balance with the right fuels, correct movement patterns and know-how, enabling participants to squeeze the most out of every day on the mountain.

While biking is good for building leg endurance and yoga is great for building flexibility and core strength, you just cannot compare holding chair pose to the large amount of force placed on your legs while skiing or riding a groomer, let alone shredding moguls and trees or hitting cliffs. Skiing and riding alike place a tremendous amount of force on your entire body. The only way to mimic this, and thus prepare your body for the rigors of the winter season, is to add an external load and perform similar movements. That’s right, I’m talking about lifting weights.
