I'm Sure That We're Made to Fit
pop quiz; maybe Beckham should be the sixth member
As the ski season approaches, for yes, it is approaching!, it's time to take my recommended two minute tooth brush tone up to a whole new level. Not being an expert in such things myself I've dug around and have come across Be Fit Apps, who, yes, you guessed it, have a Ski Fit app.
The Ski Fit App is fronted by Neil Maclean-Martin and has been developed by La Clinique du Sport in Chamonix to encourage us all to do physio exercises to take care of our bodies BEFORE we have an injury. There is no better way to prevent injury than to be fit and strong, have flexibility, balance, strength and endurance.
It's simple: If you want to ski for many years to come you need to stay strong and take care of your body all year round.
As you would expect the App is available on pretty much any device, and before you shell out £9.99, there are a number of sample videos available to give you an insight into how these guys approach exercise and gauge whether it is an approach that suits you; but for just £9.99 what have you got to loose?
Each routine includes warm-up, core work, circuits and a stretch-down exercises and altogether there are over 100 different ways to test your body which build up as you go through the programme - there must be something to suit everyone who is serious about skiing.
pop trivia: "I'm sure that we're made to fit" is from way back in 1967 when Davy Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick and Tich told us to 'Bend It, Bend It'.
