How to Get in Shape for Ski Season

With the bulk of ski resorts opening in just 45 days, now is the time to get on a six week ski preseason strength training plan. We caught up with Olympic Gold Medalist, mogul skier, and Certified Personal Trainer from the American Council on Exercise, Hannah Kearney, to find out the most effective ways to get in shape for the slopes. To get stronger, prevent injuries, feel fresh for longer, and therefore have more fun, Kearney advises that you focus on three main aspects in your workout regimen: core, quads, and hamstrings. On the blog today, Kearney will go ahead and breakdown the top exercises for each. Don’t worry- every single one of these exercises can be done with bodyweight in the privacy of your own home, or with a simple set of weights. A gym membership is purely optional but not required.

A Note From Our CEO: Bryn Carey on MT2030

In 2014, when I was trying to figure out how to be a part of the climate change solution, I approached the town of Park City, Utah. I had an infographic pulled up from The Solutions Project. This infographic was a blueprint on how the state of Utah could get to 100% renewable energy by 2050 with the breakdown of the clean energy sources, money saved, health benefits, and jobs created. It was one of the very first tangible things I could find to help solve the climate crisis. What did I love about it? That there was a clear goal, with actions and solutions to get us there. I found when I shared that goal with others, they easily understood, and they wanted this solution implemented.
