Ski Fitness

Neil is a co founder of BeFitApps, a provider of sport specific and video-based training programmes and mobile apps including SkiFit, RunFit, BikeFit and TriFit

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.
