The nights are drawing in, the temperature is dropping and it’s less than a month until the lifts open and the Chamonix ski season is under way!
Most people ponder toning up and getting fit before a beach holiday but how many get in shape before a ski holiday? Yes, those thick trousers and padded jackets can hide a multitude of sins but building up your fitness can make a world of difference to your performance on the slopes.
So… what exercises should you do to get your ski legs ready? Our friends at Clinique du Sport have developed a fantastic app that guides you through ski-specific exercises that will not only have you hammering the slopes like Tomba La Bomba but will also protect you from injuries that could hinder your apres-ski dance moves.
If you not only want to ski like Lindsey Vonn but also long to have her physique then join in one of the many fitness classes that are run weekly in Chamonix by our friends at Progression Fit and Cham Training. Kettlercise, cross training, pilates and personal fitness sessions will have you toning up muscles you didn’t even know you had.
