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.

Get Fit To SkiWhy 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.

That’s where Bend + Mend can help you. We are offering Get Fit to Ski classes to prepare you for the perils of snow skiing or boarding.

Classes consist of up to 8 people completing vigorous circuit-type ski-specific exercises designed to improve strength, endurance, balance and coordination.  This incorporates use of our ski-specific exercise machine and Pilates equipment, with a focus on core strength, quadriceps, calves, triceps and other muscles utilised in skiing.  All classes are run by a Physiotherapist trained in our Get Fit to Ski programme.

Classes run for 45 minutes, twice a week for 8 weeks.

Please call reception on 9232 5566 or email physio@bendandmend.com.au to book.

Come and make the most of your next ski season and Get Fit to Ski!
