This specialist neuromuscular conditioning programme (NMSki) will condition your muscles, separately for STRENGTH, SPEED, CONTROL and ENDURANCE so that you’re in the best shape to avoid injury and importantly get the most out of your skiing holiday.
The cutting-edge training techniques in this programme will..
- Improve your muscle strength & force production
- Improve your muscle response & reaction time
- Improve your balance, co-ordination & proprioception
- Help you avoid injury
- Help you get the most out of you skiing holiday
“Claire’s knowledge is exceptional, and this is why I would recommend this programme … if you are serious about sport, and getting the best return possible” Ross Howcroft-Jones, Ski Instructor
Skiing can be of the most challenging and physically-stressful athletic activities. Individuals not used to regularly exercising in this way and who have not prepared themselves for their skiing holiday may struggle with the physical stresses and could be at increased risk of injury.

Extra features of the NMSki PROGRAMME include:
- Guides on how to improve your fitness
- Stretching & flexibility training
- Physical tests to measure your performance and improvements
- Progress tracker to guide your through the programme phases
Track Your Progress - Try some of the tests here to see how good you really are!!
The NMSki PROGRAMME is split in to 3 phases and it is intended that you spend 2-3 weeks in each phase, dependent on your individual progress. The programme is easy to understand, progressive and suitable for all levels of skier. It also has tick-off markers and tests to guide your progression
“The programme took me form arthroscopy to skiing better, safer and faster, in 2 months! The result were immediately obvious. Dr Peter Barling, Sports Medicine GP
Out of all the injuries sustained whilst skiing, the knee joint is the most frequently injured, in some cases accounting more than 40% of all skiing-related injuries (1, 2), even the après-ski ones! Novice skiers and females may be at increased risk and one of the most common injuries is to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in the knee (1).
LEADING SPORTS MEDICINE RESEARCH:
The exercises used in this NMSki PROGRAMME and their focus have been subject to rigorous scientific research. The most up-to-date thinking and sports medicine research has informed the design of this programme to get you in to peak physical condition to deal with the physical stresses of skiing.
Injuries happen very quickly, less than the time it takes to blink an eye! Exercises to improve proprioception and rapid neuromuscular activation in in the AGILITY & CONTROL and POWER components of this NMSki PROGRAMME in particular have been shown during prospective randomised studies to significantly reduce serious knee ligament injuries (3,4,5).
