Becoming a successful skier requires many factors. Looking after yourself comes first, without that nothing else can work.
It also requires a 'Steely Determination' to go that extra mile!
Total focus on your wellbeing is part of the journey to success.
Good fitness is paramount if you wish to develop your full skiing potential to the maximum.
Skiing well on and off piste requires excellent Cardiovascular, Strength and Flexibility.
The secret is to make the most of your spare time and plan regular fitness trips to the gym. Also try running in your local park or take out your road or mountain bike. Swimming is always great, reducing impact on your joints.
