Whether you are preparing for a forthcoming ski trip or you are recovering from a skiing injury, we have just the thing, the Skier’s Edge. The Skier’s Edge is a machine to match your skiing goals. It the most complete ski performance technical conditioning system. It is the only way to replicate the forces involved in skiing as it specifically trains the muscles you use in alpine skiing. Whether you want to master tight turns, deep powder, steep bumps or cruising runs, the Skier’s Edge machine will deliver results quickly. Plus, once the ski season is over, they’re the best cross-training machines available.

 

 

Graham Bell, 5 times Olympic Skier and Ski Sunday Presenter says…..

“The Skier’s Edge is the most specific ski training tool on the market, it targets the muscles you use for Alpine Skiing and delivers a high end cardiovascular work out. There is no better way to get fit for skiing. Because the Skier’s Edge is totally non-impact it is ideal for injury rehabilitation, it is a great way to strengthen ankles and knees in the lateral plane, which is essential for skiing and other sports such as rugby and tennis. The British Alpine Ski Team have been using the Skier’s Edge since 2001, and I have been distributing them in the UK since 2003.

As well as improving fitness, the Skier’s Edge can actually improve ski technique, by encouraging the user to adopt a more dynamic position, stabilizing their core muscles, and through working on parallel edging. In before and after tests, I have seen the difference that six weeks training on the Skier’s Edge has made to peoples skiing. Please call Pro Physiotherapy for a chance to try out the Skier’s Edge.”
