Snowsport England have teamed up with Olympian Dave Ryding to produce an ace new 3-part series of ski fit videos designed to help you get in shape for your winter mountain adventures.
Together with the experts at David Lloyd Clubs’ Personal Training team, Dave will take you through a host of easy to follow ski-specific exercises that target three main areas that you should be working on ahead of a winter trip.
“Fitness and conditioning is obviously a huge part of my daily routine and I know how crucial it is in staying injury free and getting the most out of your skiing”, said three-time Olympian Dave Ryding. “When Snowsport England, who helped me get into skiing when I was younger, suggested the idea of working together to produce a ski fitness video I jumped at the chance to pass on my knowledge.
“It was also great to work with David Lloyd Clubs to make sure we tailored the three videos to all levels of skiers. And by having SportPursuit as partners we hope to get thousands of people ready for their ski holidays.”

‘Get Fit to Ski’ videos can be viewed for free on Snowsport England’s website and Snowsport England YouTube channel. Performed regularly in the build up to a ski holiday or a session at an indoor or dry slope, ‘Get Fit to Ski’ can help improve overall fitness as well as making you stronger and helping reduce the risk of injury. David Lloyd Clubs also offers Synergy ski fit classes and 1-2-1 personal training at its clubs for those that want an in person experience to help them get ready for the slopes this winter.
To coincide with the launch of ‘Get Fit to Ski’, Snowsport England are now offering a £10 ‘Hit the Slopes’ membership which gives skiers and snowboarders access to a range of retail and travel discounts as well as helping fans of snowsport support the sport they love.
