Off Ice training is vital for skater development. Most recently, at the World Championships, we heard and witnessed the impact of consistent off ice training in skater performance.
We're really lucky that within our skating community we have specialists who offer training to our skaters.
Becky Greenland Off Ice Training
Throughout lockdown Becky Greenland has provided daily off ice training via zoom, with one-to-ones focusing on flexibility, core stability, strength and conditioning, pilates and barre.
Not only has this provided valuable training, but has provided support and sense of community for our members.
Becky hopes to resume live classes in the near future. You can join her online via the facebook group Guildford Off Ice.
Kirsten Spours began her skating career at Guildford and is now one of the leading British skaters training and competing on the international circuit.
Kristen has offered small group work to our skaters on spins and jumps throughout lockdown.
Kristen has also offered our skaters training on ESC spinners to focus on speed of rotation, balance and position for spins and jumps.
...and the results pay off on ice...
