Pre Season Ski Fitness

Writing opens many doors. After my ski fitness book was published, I received an offer to teach a ski conditioning week at Portillo Chile. Portillo is the summer training grounds for many professional ski teams, and Mark and I were there when the Austrian team was in training. I was pleased to see that Hermann Maier’s  personal trainer used a similar stability ball and balance training program similar to the ones that I taught my students.

As the middle of August approaches, serious skiers should get ready for the slopes with a pre-season training program. Here are a few suggestions:
