Get Ski Fit for the New Season – Innovative Products to Help

Get ski fit

There’s nothing wrong with getting excited when you have to scrape the ice off your windscreen in the morning. It means that winter is on its way and you’re that bit closer to heading to the slopes! It also means that you have less time to crack on with the training that you meant to do this year in preparation for the new season to get ski fit – Gulp!

You had the best of intentions; there were plans to do 120 mile bike rides, a couple of 10km charity runs and those essential squats and leg raises three months before heading to the mountains; sadly life got in the way. All is not lost however, there are plenty of ways for you to make the most of your time before you hit the slopes, so you can ensure that you’re in the best possible shape for a great ski experience.

Not everyone has the time or dedication to make it to the gym or get out on their bike, but we should still make some kind of effort to improve our ski fitness. The simple act of walking to work can now be part of your holiday preparation with help from the new Pflexx muscle activator.

The Pflexx is not a brace or support, but a wearable device that assists muscle development during sport and day to day activity. Made from Thermo Cool fabric, this product’s secret lies in the spring loaded panels on the side of the knee sleeve. These panels provide adjustable resistance (R1 easy R4 most difficult) when the knee is flexed or bent, challenging the leg muscles, and building strength and muscle tissue as you walk, move or run.

“It doesn’t matter who you are, Pflexx will enhance your exercise. Adding Pflexx to your physical programme boosts results and is even suitable pre and post-operation following advice from your Doctor/Physiotherapist. The real beauty of Pflexx is that it’s adaptable and works at your pace. The harder you work, the harder Pflexx works. Set new targets as your fitness grows and Pflexx will keep challenging you to exceed expectations.
The patented technology behind Pflexx coped with intense analysis and testing at every stage of development. Some of the UK’s leading bio-mechanical engineers, sports scientists and academics studied the resistance technology, as well as trialling it with elite athletes. The results were conclusive: the Knee Pflexx boosts muscle activation by up to 30% when walking, and up to 400% when running.”

The device fits easily under your clothes so it can be worn daily as well as during structured physical activity. Despite being suitable for general use, it is not a replacement for a full keep fit program and should be used in conjunction with whatever you are already doing to enhance its effectiveness and help you to prepare for your trip to the slopes. Make sure you check out our website for full details or visit one of our Snow + Rock stores to see one, try one on and get Pflexx-ing.
