Being based in Chamonix, Neil has for many years worked with locals mountain guides, ski instructors and professional athletes. His desire to produce SkiFit, what he describes as a ‘pre-habilitation programme’ came after treating hundreds of injuries which he was sure could have been prevented by correctly screening and improving strength and efficiency in key areas.
SkiFit is a video-based training programme and mobile app aimed at skiers who are serious about getting fit for their winter season of snowsports. The programme offers a series of high quality exercises specific to snowsports which can be done at home or in the gym, and is suitable for all levels of fitness.
There are 4 different phases that build up over 8 weeks. Each session takes 1 hour and includes a warm up, activation exercises, core work, circuits, coordination exercises and a final stretch down.
The team also created SkiFit8, an 8 minute version of the full SkiFit programme. It takes the best exercises from the full programme and puts them into a short session that you can do on days when you are busy, in work breaks or even to kick start the day before breakfast.
The company now has a range of sport specific programmes for skiers, cyclists, runners and triathletes who want to improve efficiency, performance and prevent injury.
