“the most ski specific… fantastic preparation for skiing”

Ski workouts – let’s make it enjoyable & effective

Most people go skiing with little prep, the wrong prep, or no prep at all – leading to 3 days aches & pains, a lack of control, and increased injury risk – all putting a potential dampener on that expensive holiday.

Ski exercises with CoolBoard balance board are not only ‘incredibly effective for ski fitness’ (Times-On-Line), they can also add a dose of fun.  Just a few minutes a day will do it, ideally over a few weeks or longer, but even just a few days will make a difference.

CoolBoard is not only the worlds best balance board, it’s also a surprisingly effective strength and conditioning tool due to the unique 3D movement.  Standing balance will do your stabilisation, legs, and core a lot of good.  Doing the additional exercises will give you a full body workout perfect for the piste.

Feel the flow from day one and get more from your skiing holiday by being physically prepared.   Increase your ski finesse, performance and stamina, reduce aches and pains, and lower the chance of injury.

With a CoolBoard you can achieve this from the comfort of your home, gym, or office, and even take it to your chalet for some apres shenanigans…

Balance & Control – for a bigger smile

Skiing calls on many parts of the body that often get ignored for the rest of the year – joint stability, core strength, leg and glutes, balance and proprioception.  All those poor little stabilising muscles and tendons will get a shock.  But let’s be fair, most skiing workouts are not exactly inspiring, dynamic or fun.

Let the patented multi-directional movement of CoolBoard help you get in the mood, and into condition.  Similar to your skis, CoolBoard will constantly move around underneath you, so you’ll be working all the right physical attributes, as confirmed by Chemmy, TeamGB, and the Times-On-Line.

You can take it easy and use CoolBoard on our adjustable Balance Disc, or you can up the ante and use it on our Ball.  The Disc will do your Skiing a lot of good…. the Ball supercharges both the physical benefits as well as the fun factor.  Get all the options with one of our fantastic 2-1 packages.

Ski Injury & Prevention

Skiing constantly loads your body eccentrically (off-balance), which you want to be prepared for.  Research shows a weak core and/or joint stabilising structures are major contributors to ski related injuries – a bulging quad doesn’t necessarily mean you can control it.

The unique movement of CoolBoard targets these structures that enable you to hold correct form while also protecting you from the eccentric loads of skiing – core strength, joint stabilisation, balance and proprioception – meaning you’ll be less likely to suffer an injury.

Re-injury is common when these aspects of strength haven’t been focused on during recovery, so if you’re recovering from injury, or think you have but occasionally feel a twinge… spend a bit of time on CoolBoard to give your body the best chance and get back to your best ski fitness…

Taking it further – exercises

Achieve a dependable functional fitness that will pay dividends on the slopes.  CoolBoard Ski exercises – lunges, calf raises, squats, pelvic rises and more – become far more effective and ski specific due to the added movement and instability of CoolBoard.

This patented instability means you will work your body in a more balanced way, not just the major muscles, but also the myriad of small stabilising muscles and your core, which when combined allow our bodies to hold good form when under pressure.

No other product allows you to work your body like this, and you can do these ski exercises almost anywhere.  Due to the progressive nature of CoolBoard you can start easy and increase the level of instability as you progress.  Best of all, the engaging nature of CoolBoard makes sticking to your regime more likely!

The included 7-step workout will give you a great start in your ski fitness training, then you can step up to our Ski Specific Workout to give yourself the best pre-ski training.

Times-on-Line Ski Fit Product Test

Wanting to evaluate ski fitness products against effectiveness and price, Times-On-Line arranged their ski and fitness experts to test products ranging from £10 to £2000.

After putting the products and themselves through the paces two products came out on top and were worthy of their recommendation – CoolBoard was one – the other costing ten times as much!  We’ll take that as a win thank you!

In their words, the ski and fitness experts “instantly felt CoolBoard working all the right muscles for skiers and snowboarders, especially the all important but often overlooked joint stabilising muscles and core strength, while also improving essential balance skills.”

High accolade indeed, and what led us to working with the Team GB Skiers!
