Tips to get you ready for a Winter Sports Break

Get down to the gym pronto and get advice on the best fitness programme and exercise that will prepare your body before your holiday.

For those who gave up their gym membership to save some money and invested in a cross-trainer instead, you are probably already toned are raring to go.

Working out with an elliptical cross trainer on a regular basis will help reduce muscle soreness and any chance of injury from your sporting activities.

You don’t have to be a fitness fanatic or be a member of a fitness club to condition your body especially when you own your own exercise machine.

The advantage of using home fitness equipment is you can always increase your routine when it suits you; which is perfect for a pre-holiday exercise session. Cross trainers offer cardiovascular workouts as well as resistance training and depending on the type of elliptical you have, provide varied programmes for specific conditioning exercises.

Which exercises are good to do before a skiing or snowboarding trip

Good forms of cardiovascular exercises include swimming, running and cycling which are also excellent for general body fitness. In addition, using a cross-trainer at home can also give you a cardio workout that you can do any time at home in any weather conditions.

Strengthening all major muscle groups including knee joints is essential; which is what cross trainers do so well. Best of all is the low impact exercise ellipticals provide with upper and lower body routines building strength in a gentle but effective way. Once these core muscles have been put through their paces you’ll soon be ready for the ski slopes.

Skiing and snowboarding breaks are a popular choice for winter sports holidays and many can’t wait to strap on their skis. It makes sense to get the most out of any sporting activities by investing in a home gym or other strength training equipment so you can get the maximum enjoyment from your favourite sport.

Getting fit with a cross-trainer will benefit you before your skiing break as well as afterwards too. By targeting specific muscle groups and building strength you will notice an improvement in your skiing technique and reduced soreness afterwards.
