Skiing and Snowboarding Fitness Training
Don’t let an injury ruin a fun trip to the mountains. NB Physical Therapy in Louisville offers skiing and snowboarding fitness training. We’ll help to ensure that you’re safe and ready to take on the slopes.
Because age, fitness level and a simple lack of practice can all contribute to your risk of injury, we’ve designed a program to address any issues that could force you off the mountain because of a banged-up knee. Our skiing and snowboarding fitness training starts with a 45-minute fitness test that will assess:
- Cardiovascular Flexibility
- Plyometric Ability/Control
- Ski/Snowboard Specific Strength
From this test, we will determine your skill level – beginner, intermediate or advanced. To address any deficits, our trained staff will teach you fitness exercises that will improve your strength and skills, as well as help you prevent falls and subsequent injuries such as torn ligament in your knee (ACL tear).
After completing your exercise regimen in 8 weeks, you can retake the portion of the test that showed the deficit to determine if you’re ready for the slopes. Whether you live in Louisville or other local areas, we welcome you to contact NB Physical Therapy for skiing and snowboarding fitness training.
