Guide Review - Ski Fitness Video

Andrew Hooge, a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist, author of FitSking - Your Guide For Peak Skiing Fitness and founder of FitSkiing.com has produced a ski specific exercise routine video - Terrain Tune Up.

Terrain Tune Up is designed as a repetitive routine for skiers, 3 days-a-week, 30-minute a day for 4-6 weeks before they hit the slopes.

What's really convenient about Terrain Tune Up is that for $4.99 you can download the video from FitSkiing.com and workout five minutes later. I've worked the routine and can say that it will improve cardiovascular fitness and increase both power and strength endurance.
