ABOUT SKIER'S EDGE

THE BEST

#1 TECHNICAL SKI CONDITIONER IN THE WORLD

THE BEGINNING OF THE SKIER'S EDGE

The Skier’s Edge was designed as a non-impact lateral conditioning machine. After years of playing football and numerous knee surgeries, doctors told the creator and inventor of the Skier’s Edge he should no longer run to stay in shape. He looked for a way to safely strengthen his knees, get a great aerobic workout, and be in top condition to ski each season pain free. After searching in vain for the right equipment and exercises, he developed the Skier’s Edge. Upon showing the unit to doctors and physical therapists, he was encouraged to introduce it to the public. Initially supplying only the U.S. Ski Team, the Skier’s Edge Company has since become the exclusive official supplier to the world’s best ski teams and is available to the general public.

The Skier’s Edge helps aspiring novice and intermediate skiers become advanced/expert skiers who dominate the entire mountain in all snow conditions. In fact, many athletes who train on a Skier’s Edge have proven to be quite extraordinary winning numerous awards, titles, championships and Olympic Gold Medals. This is the perfect training tool for every ability and all ages.

Our quality is exceptional and our track record unmatched. Our machines are used by World Cup racers, Olympians, pro-athletes and can be found in training rooms worldwide. The Skier’s Edge is also used for training and conditioning throughout the NFL, NHL, MLB, NBA, at major universities, sports medicine clinics, and rehab centers.

SKIER'S EDGE: FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How is Skier’s Edge different from other exercise equipment?
The Skier’s Edge focuses on weight transfer, balance and agility. The constant motion allows individuals to raise their heart rate to their target for cardiovascular fitness. In fact, it is possible to burn over 1,540 calories per hour on the Skier’s Edge. It builds strength through lateral motion, increasing endurance and flexibility.

Why is it necessary to train lateral motion?
Side-to-side movements are common to all sports—tennis, skiing, basketball etc. Properly training muscles for that kind of motion is difficult. The Skier’s Edge not only trains the muscles, but also instills muscle memory to recall the movement when performing that action during a game.

I have sensitive knees and ankles? Does the Skier’s Edge put too much pressure on those areas?
Not at all. The Skier’s Edge is a non-impact form of exercise. The machine moves by exerting body weight against resistance. Your own body weight is the safest weight to work against. There is no risk of injuring muscles or joints this way.

NOT JUST FOR SKIERS – A MACHINE FOR ALL ATHLETES

The Skier’s Edge is a fun, non-impact cardio workout that can burn 150% more calories than intense aerobic group workouts. Waist, hips, thighs and buttocks become leaner. The result is a stronger, better looking body with more energy and less stress.

  • I set up an off-season training program for Andy Roddick. After evaluating Andy’s lower extremity and core strength I developed a program for him, which included intense training on the Skier’s Edge. It enhanced Andy’s lateral quickness and power, as demonstrated by his success.

  • Football is a very dynamic sport that involves quick movements and sudden changes in direction, making the Skier's Edge World Cup Plyometric machine the perfect training tool for working with some of the world's best athletes. The New York Giants have been using the Skier's Edge for the last ten years to help rehabilitate our players following injury and improve athletic performance. The Skier's Edge engages the upper and lower extremity and core, like football, helping our players perform at a championship level.

  • The Swiss Team has used the Skier's Edge for many years now with great success! It is part of our inventory and goes with us everywhere from training camps to the World Cup circuit. Many skiers remain advanced only on groomed slopes. What is required to be an expert on the whole mountain is power and confidence. If you use the Skier's Edge every day, you will gain the power and confidence to leave the groomed trails and ski the whole mountain. The Skier's Edge is as essential to skiing as skis, boots and poles.

  • The German National Ski Team uses the Skier's Edge in all year-round preparation. We get tremendous help in building up certain abilities for our top athletes. The movements on the Skier's Edge are the same as real skiing (open leg position, independent work of both legs, canting) and therefore very important for our training and building up leg power. In addition, we work on balance and coordinative exercise. For these aims we can imagine no better training machine.

  • The US Ski Team has been using the Skier's Edge World Cup Plyometric Power year round as part of our race program. We have learned that the athletes are able to develop the anaerobic system in a very progressive way while using these sport specific components. The high intensity that the athletes are able to produce on the Skier's Edge World Cup Plyometric Power develops the anaerobic system very effectively. Overall, we see the Skier's Edge as a great tool for preparing our athletes for the intense load involved in ski racing.

  • I bought it in the off season to stay in shape. The Skier's Edge has brought me to a whole new level of skiing. It not only helped me stay in shape, I started off my second season skiing better than I did at the end of last ski season. The Skier's Edge has improved my balance, timing, strength, endurance and confidence on the slopes. I would definitely recommend this to anyone at any level of skiing to improve their skiing abilities.
