The Skier's

EDGE

What it is: The Skier's Edge is the #1 technical ski conditioner in the world. It is non-impact cardio and simulates the turning motion in skiing by going side to side while building your lateral leg strength, core muscles, and improving your balance.

 

How it works: Step onto the platform and get ready to hit the slopes! With both feet in place, you recruit your lateral leg muscles, core and explosive strength trained earlier in class, to push into your turns and get started. The rhythm and momentum you gain will help you fly down the mountain. 

 

Ease of use: The Skier's Edge is not only easy to use, but is also so much fun. Your time on the machine will fly by, leaving you wanting more. This machine is used by people of all athletic backgrounds, ranging from skiing to football, tennis, and golf.

 

Why it's beneficial: Because this machine is non-impact cardio, it gives you a very effective workout without putting any additional stress on your joints. The lateral leg strength, balance, and core stability you gain from using this machine can be applied to your everyday life and any other athletic pursuits. Plus, it doesn't hurt that you can burn over 1,000 calories per hour on it!

” The US Ski Team has been using the Skier’s Edge World Cup Plyometric Power year round as part of our race program. We have learned that the athletes are able to develop the anaerobic system in a very progressive way while using these sport specific components. The high intensity that the athletes are able to produce on the Skier’s Edge World Cup Plyometric Power develops the anaerobic system very effectively. Overall, we see the Skier’s Edge as a great tool for preparing our athletes for the intense load involved in ski racing. ”
