Strength and Endurance
Some of the best days on skis are those where you skied all day but still felt like you could have done one more lap. Or the days you tapped into your reserve in a way you can only do when you’ve put in the extra time to prepare for the season. We want all of your days to feel that way. Guided by the latest research ATP strengthens key muscles and programs your workouts to maintain muscle balance to maximize your performance and reduce your risk of injury. This kind of preparation allows you to shorten your recovery time and build on your base fitness through dryland ski-specific movements. We focus on body weight exercises that require little to no equipment. Our programs address commonly missed regions important for muscle balance and movement quality.
Our programs address mobility restrictions common to folks on the slopes. That allows you to absorb a deeper knee bend or respond to being thrown forward if the snow suddenly changes. Sometimes past injuries have limited that range. We will build your confidence in your lower back, hip, knee and ankle joints. Our musculoskeletal system (array of joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments) can be fine-tuned. We are constantly getting feedback from the environment around us. This is especially true on the slopes where we may see variability in weather or snow conditions. Our neuromuscular system (the muscles and the nerves that supply them) respond very quickly to training. We want to be strong through the full range of our joints. Be ready to stretch, mobilize and lengthen so we can increase your pain-free range of motion.
Being able to maintain good form can make all of the difference when it comes to preventing an injury or improving performance. Our off-season pursuits don’t often train you to meet the specific stability demands of skiing and snowboarding. That is why it is important to start working on these areas before ski season starts and to continue with maintenance exercises throughout the season. We will progress you through the appropriate dosage of sets and repetitions for each exercise. We prioritize those exercises that help us adapt in real time to our position in space. This aspect of our workouts allows us to focus on timing and coordination. This is the area most commonly missed if we only make time for cardiovascular fitness or strength. It is key to injury prevention and allowing you to have a long and healthy season.
