Snowboard fitness with the Pros

We mentioned snowboard trainer Gibbo is in hardcore Ironman training this summer. So, to help you get the best out of the 10 week snowboard course in Saas Fee (Switzerland) here’s some snowboard fitness inspiration … 

Taking it to the backcountry

Jussi Oksanen is a master of backcountry freestyle – as his final video part ever shows.

Now retired as a snowboard pro (to work full-time on his answer to the problem of plastic water bottle waste, via his reuse-container company Mizu) Jussi’s fitness video from EziaAthleticClub still has some awesome snb-specific drills.

If it worked for Jussi – it’ll work for you!

Switching it up on a MTB

Chris Robanske put out this Olympics edit prior to competing in the snowboard cross last year.

While we’re not sure about trying the Olympic bar lift across the groin (?!) we can definitely relate to taking to the mountain bike trails for cross-training.

Girl power from Burton

Not so much a single video as a whole series of fitness blogs courtesy of Burton Girls.

From restorative yoga stretching with Marissa Van Woeart to pre-season training with Kimmy Fasani – you’ll find plenty of tips from the women’s team at Burton.

We’ll be in Saas Fee (Switzerland) in September 2015 and Morzine (France) in January 2016.
