Aria Athletic Club at Vail Cascade Launches Its 28th Annual Ski & Snowboard Conditioning Program
Get in peak shape before ski season in Vail, Colorado with Aria Athletic Club’s ski conditioning fitness program! Winter sports like skiing, snowboarding, and snowshoeing are high-intensity activities that demand a certain level of advance preparation to avoid injury and minimize muscle soreness and fatigue. Starting on Oct. 12, Aria Athletic Club will launch its 28th Annual Ski Conditioning program, a six-week progressive fitness series that incorporates plyometrics, agility, leg and core strengthening, and dynamic stability exercises to tone and prepare the body for outdoor winter fitness. The program is open to members and non-members, and offers four different enrollment options including: five days per week, three mornings per week, two evenings per week or single drop-in sessions. The program will also include exclusive events, social gatherings and promotions.
For 28 years, Aria Athletic Club fitness experts have leveraged the skills, knowledge and training learned on-mountain to create real-life, pre-ski programs that can be executed indoors. Held in the award-winning Aria Athletic Club located at Vail Cascade Resort, Aria’s accredited coaches will direct the ski conditioning program, Monday-Thursday, Oct. 12-Nov. 19. Each session begins with a warm-up, followed by movement preparation exercises involving stretching and muscle activation techniques. Attendees will then be split into groups and rotate through four stations, each designed to focus on:
- Plyometrics & Agility
- Leg Strengthening
- Core Strengthening
- Dynamic Stability
Coaches will incorporate two fitness systems into the training program. TRX® suspension training is a bodyweight exercise that develops strength, balance, flexibility and core stability. FitWall® is a vertical wall system that uses body weight for resistance, engaging and challenging all muscle groups to increase functional strength.
In addition to training sessions, all participants are invited to sponsored events and social gatherings at Aria Athletic Club; October 12 (kick-off party) and November 18 (completion celebration). Participants will also receive exclusive promotions and giveaways courtesy of this year’s program sponsors, including product giveaways, hotel stays, sporting event tickets, dinner gift certificates, and spa packages.
