Matt Johnson will lead this program on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6:00pm-8:00pm. The program is designed to be a flexible training program for anyone from college skiers, to post-college recreational racers, to Masters of any age who want to improve their ski technique and fitness for the coming season. We will meet Tuesdays and Thursdays at Sugarhouse Park for running, rollerskiing, and strength workouts.
Laurie Humbert and Janet Myshrall will again conduct their Monday and Wednesday evening sessions, starting on Wednesday Sept 5, at Sugarhouse Park on the north side of the pond. This carefully designed program includes core stability exercises, ski specific strengthening techniques, flexibility training, and ski walk and bounding interval work.
