Every skater spends MOST of their time on skates JUST SKATING! However, if your skating stride lacks fundamental technique, you will not get the fitness benefits that skating offers and you may even create bad habits over time that can lead to ‘slow onset injuries’ particularly if you skate distances (e.g. ankle, knee, hip pains from persistent pronation on an inside edge). What you’ll learn;
- An efficient push.
- A correct, comfortable glide, in terms of edges, balance and cadence.
- A regroup that maximises your stride and doesn't destroy all the hard work you just put in.
- The Stride Training Sequence. The drill to keep you on track for months/years to come.
“This class transformed my skating. I never knew how many things I was doing wrong. Feels great to be on the right path now and I understand what a workout skating should be if you’re doing it right.” - Analise (46) Belgium
This workshop does not cover the Double Push (although most skaters fail with the double push because their normal fitness stride lacks the correct foundations). This class is an essential prerequisite for the Double Push workshop.
PLEASE NOTE: This group lesson is appropriate for every level of skater except beginners.
