Get in shape before the season!! The leader (Bob Barnes) of the Wedeln Ski and Snowboard Race Team will hold dryland training every Tuesday night this Fall. The workout is great for anyone who wants to get in shape, you do not have to be a skier or racer. Bob's enthusiasm for skiing and training is contagious, he will get you working hard and getting results. All fitness levels are welcome but come ready to sweat. Bob will lead the group in Plyometric based training methods designed to get the leg muscles ready for the season. This is the same workout that he has used for many years to prepare for ski racing.

There is no charge - we are just a bunch of skiers and riders trying to help each other get in shape. Darlene Stokes will also lead the group in additional exercises designed to increase flexibility and build a strong core. Last year we had many people from Meetup join us for these workouts. Some even became regular guests up at our ski house in NH. Ski Fitness Training is a great way to get ready for the season and make some friends you can join on the slopes when the weather gets colder. The workouts last 1.5 hours and are always immediately followed by a few drinks and sometimes some food at a variety of Waltham Center Bars/Restaurants. Please wear work-out clothes and athletic shoes with some ankle support.

    Aaron - I was doing stadiums last year to get in shape for the season but did not do this year. I may get back into it soon. It really pushes both the cardio and leg strength at the same time.

    Another great workout: I've been running the steps at the Harvard Football stadium. This work out helps both wind and leg strength. I noticed a positive difference when I went on a ski tip to Alta last year. I generally run at night sometime between 8 and 9 pm. By then the lights are out, but the steps are light gray and reflect light from other buildings and the moon light, in addition, this year, I'm wearing a headlamp that seems to work pretty well.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
