Ski Fit Skiplex


Skiplex, the UK’s only continuous indoor revolving slopes is running a series of weekly Ski Fit lessons and week-long Ski Fit Bootcamps between January and March 2014.

Ski Fit at Skiplex Reading – Weekly sessions:

Skiplex Reading runs a unique ski fit class which combines on slope skiing with off slope, ski specific exercises. Each session includes 30 minutes of ski time with one of the centre’s fully qualified instructors and 40 minutes off slope time with a physio and pilates instructor.

The off slope exercises have been designed to build and strengthen the same muscle group used when skiing and also to work on improving balance and co-ordination. The time spent on the slope will involve working on technique and at the same time working on ski fitness. The sessions include exclusive use of Graham Bell’s Skier’s Edge machine as part of the off slope exercises.

Skiplex Ski Fit Instructor, Shelly Wickings adds, “These ski fit classes and intensive bootcamp sessions at Skiplex aim to get skiers ready for their holidays on the slopes or simply as a tool to aid fitness as the New Year starts. We welcome all levels of fitness and the sessions are fun as well as hard work combining on slope time with Skiplex own instructors, as well as a series of off slope exercises taught by me”.

Ski Fit  runs on Thursday mornings from 9th January 2014, 10- 11:30am– single session booking is available or book in groups of six lessons.

Cost: £34.99 for a single lesson or £179.99 for six.
