Off Ice Training

Figure skating is a sport that puts significant strength and flexibility demands on the body. Skaters are some of the strongest athletes in the world. Some skaters have natural strength, balance, and core strength that will take them through the lower levels of skating quickly, but the majority of skaters need to improve upon each of those attributes in order to progress to higher levels. By completing an off-ice training program 2-3 times a week, skaters will progress their on-ice skills at a faster pace, and be able to handle the strength demands of jumping, spinning, and long programs.

With 1Solidcore there are workouts that will build a solid core strength, help you improve your flexibility and leg strength and stamina.
