A great way to tempt in new customers or simply pep up your winter classes is to run specific SKI FITNESS courses that can be attended by both those that can Nordic walk and complete novices. Instructors who ran these last year were delighted that many newcomers who came along purely to get fit for their annual trip to the slopes were completely sold on the benefits of Nordic walking and became regulars.
The NWUK SKI FIT PROGRAMME is no ordinary ‘Get fit for the slopes course’ as seen advertised in many a gym at this time of year – it’s an outdoor, rigorous, progressive course based on sound coaching principles and put together by SKI FITNESS expert and NWUK Tutor, Nicky Parsons.
The course covers all aspects of winter sport fitness:-
• Weight Transfer
This makes it ideal for snowboarders, cross country skiers and downhillers alike and is guaranteed impact on both their performance and enjoyment once out on the snow.
One customer on return from her Ski holiday last year wrote to Martin, her instructor, because she had been delighted that she had skied for longer and recovered faster than on previous trips and felt she had spent less time on her backside!
Nicky is a high profile cross country ski coach and leads gruelling ski touring expeditions around the world and she has used this vast experience to develop a set teaching process with easy to follow drill cards that make sure every client continues to improve week on week.
If you would like to teach the NWUK SKI FIT PROGRAMME you will need to attend a one day intensive training session with Nicky where you will learn the unique drills and how to add progression according to the needs of your clients.
The unique programme comes with branded promotional materials and lesson cards
