Because this workout has gotten us such excellent ski mountain results in the past, we’ve decided to share it again just in time for your winter prep. Have you started a mountain-ready fitness routine yet?
If you’ve ever been to a mountain in Vermont, you know that ski-bum isn’t the appropriate term for the hardcore athletes you see streaking down the slopes. Skiing’s a serious sport. That’s why it’s incredibly important to prepare your body for its wrath with pre-ski training workouts and our top five skiing exercises.

Next week, we’ll feature a snowboarding workout (skiing’s younger brother)—also a serious athletic endeavor. Be sure to always consult your healthcare practitioner before beginning any exercise program.
While we probably can’t naturally achieve the type of tan we’d like with only seven hours of sunlight, we can keep our skin glowing, moisturized and happy all year round with a few simple solutions.

Maybe you have your reasons. Maybe your reasons involve your personality, your disdain for – ugh - classes, or your lack of desire to spend money on a good ol’ turn-red-and-vomit session. Mine did.

It was definitely me.
Here’s what I learned.
But getting a head start is a good idea even if you’re not in a race.
