Just back from a terrific week of skiing over Christmas. Loads of snow and great times. I’m so glad I followed this programme for 4 weeks before I left. It helped with my confidence in the deeper than normal snow and meant I could keep up with my teenage kids for most of the week. We are heading to a friend’s chalet in March and I will do another 3 or 4 weeks before I go. Recommended!

I got the program for some last minute training a few weeks before my Christmas ski trip with the family. I have just had two days of ski school in the morning with afternoon laps and can really feel the difference. Having stronger legs is helping me to get more from ski lessons as I can concentrate on learning instead of worrying about leg burn and getting too out of breath. I just got up for day 3 and my legs feel great – not as sore and tired as usual and I can’t wait to get out!
I travel a lot for business and find it hard to train so I liked the fact that this has options for bodyweight and gym training. I have just had a couple of days in Jackson Hole with some buddies who charge hard and being a bit stronger really helped me keep up. I was surprised how much difference 4 weeks of training made and I’m going to get back on the programme after Christmas as I’m off to Whistler with the family at the end of January.

Being a Dad I’ve let my fitness go a bit over the last few years which led to a twisted knee on my last trip. I’ve been working on the ski program for about 6 weeks and feel way more solid and strong on my legs. I’m really excited about new year skiing in Austria now and I’m not as worried about my knee.


No, you don’t. You can train at home, in the park or in a gym, it is up to you.

Yes, absolutely. The programme is progressive and at every stage you are coached through the exercises with HD videos. Just take your time and pay attention to your technique and you will pick it up in no time.

All levels of rider can use the programme. We have a wide range of riders and racers, but mostly it’s people who just want to enjoy their weekly rides more.

We suggest that the minimum time to feel the benefits of the programme are 3 weeks followed by a few days off to rest before your big day.

You don’t need any specialist equipment or access to a gym. Each of our programmes recommend some low-cost items that will make your training more effective, but none are essential.

We have designed the programmes specifically to be accessible to people training at home.

This is totally down to you and your doctor or physio to decide. We never suggest that you train through pain, however if you have a small niggle, you can often train around it, making good progress in other areas whilst doing your rehab.

The amount of time you train is up to you but we suggest that the minimum commitment is 2 x 45 min sessions per week for good, consistent progress. 

Yes, under the supervision of an adult. We have a number of under 18’s on the programmes across the UK and beyond. 

Absolutely not – if you can do your chosen sport, you can train. It’s even more important for older to stay strong as you get older.

Absolutely. Just build steadily and listen to your body. Getting stronger and possibly losing some weight as you train will have massive benefits when taking part in your sport.

No, this is a one-time purchase.

If our programme doesn’t work for you for whatever reason, we’ll give you a full refund, no questions asked.
