The benefits of swimming for cyclists

Triathletes probably all know this already but it seems clear now that swimming can provide significant benefits for other aerobic sports such as cycling. Strong evidence for this comes from the return to form of Team Sky cyclist Richie Porte after a 2014 troubled by illness with a dominating performance in the 2015 Paris-Nice stage race. The secret sauce in Richie’s success? A winter spent blending training miles on the bike with an average of 20km swimming per week in his local pool in Launceston, Continue reading →

The benefits of SkiFit for skiing and running!

Although we have just launched our second online programme TriFit, let’s not forget many of our users are still continuing their SkiFit programmes. One happy user was kind enough to send us this unprompted feedback. “I’ve been using the SkiFit program since the end of last year and it has helped me survive two ski trips this year, one of which was my first attempt to ski off piste – it was still very hard work but I’m sure the fitness and strength I’ve gained from the program Continue reading →

It can be amazing fun skiing with children after the initial dressing ritual and logistics of actually getting the child to the start of the piste. The enjoyment of seeing your child ski off their first button or chair lift can be very emotional (I can testify that Continue reading →

A guide to skiing in Japan from Bruce Goodlad

Japan holds a special place in the heart of skiers who will immediately think of those stunning sequences in the ski movies where the riders float effortlessly through clouds of overhead powder. While we probably all have a skiing trip to Japan on our must do list, not many of us have been and I for one don’t really know what such a trip would be like or how I should go about organising it to make sure it really is the ski trip of Continue reading →
