It is amazing how your body can transform and adapt with the right kind of exercise!
I have created Strong Skier to help passionate skiers do “the right kind of exercise” when it comes to preparing for skiing, so they don’t have to waste their time on generic stuff – or miss out on the snow for not being physically fit and free to ski.

Great workouts! I do 4 workouts a week and i actually have fun doing this at home. They are short and to the point – and as a great bonus i see my thighs and butt getting firm and more toned.
“I bought this program to improve my skiing skills. Living in the South US, we never get to ski on a regular basis. We take 1-2 ski vacations per year, so we ski 4-5 days in a row and get very sore, and never really improve our skills.
I did the program at least 2 x a week for about 4 months before our vacation last year. I felt my core had dramatically strengthened and it made a huge difference in how sore I was, especially in my quads. I was able to keep up with the boys and they even noticed how much faster and more confident I was.
I would definitely recommend the program, it is not time consuming and I was able to add it to my regular workout routine. It does not use a lot of equipment and anyone can do it.”
“I bought the program because I needed a cost effective ski exercise program I could do from home without having to go to the gym or buy any expensive exercise machinery. It’s excellent value for money & I feel that I will be in much better shape for skiing when I hit the slopes again.”
“We purchased your exercise video in June 2010 to prepare for the ski season all be it a little late.
We were very impressed with the easy to follow and simple instructions with various programs to step up to as you gained your ski fitness. We purchased two step boxes on the internet and the whole family joined in at home doing the exercises. It was fun and effective and as we also ski overseas in the off-season we will use your video each time we need to prepare for our ski trips.
I would definitely recommend this video for anyone whether you are a beginner or advanced skier as the different programs suit all fitness levels and the exercises are very well tailored to the unique muscle combinations (very well thought out by you Anya) used to ski more effectively and have a lot more fun doing so.”
“Staying strong has allowed me more amazing experiences on snow that I would have ever imagined – even to the point of starting a second ski career at the age 39! And that after having been told that my skiing days were over – not just once!
I hope the following will inspire you to put that little effort in to preparing your body for the adventures you would like to take on…”

A good ski exercise program will work both strength and balance. If you are very strong but have a poor balance, the balance will be your limiting factor and vice versa. It simply doesn’t help you much to have real strong legs if your balance is left untrained. Good balance is…
In most sports the physical effort lies in generating the force that is going to take you faster or higher, make you kick, throw or hit harder etc. The unique thing about skiing is that it is mostly about resisting external forces acting upon you, so you can stay balanced and in control.
Doing the right stretches and foam rolling is definitely worth it to get rid of soft tissue adhesions and allow your muscles to work more freely.
