Each pack includes one pair of trainers and four pairs of balance blocks.

 

There's also a detailed instruction manual, with fitting instructions and advice on exercises. 

 

To fit the trainers, simply adjust them so that the blocks are centered under the ski boots. Then, wearing your boots, balance on the blocks - so that your toes and heels don’t touch down. 

This starts out quite easy, and gets a lot more challenging as the balance blocks get smaller.

The largest size of blocks - the green blocks - are quite stable and are designed to be quickly mastered.  However, the blue and red blocks are smaller and more difficult. The blue blocks are a moderately hard challenge for good skiers. The red blocks are a difficult but achievable challenge for good skiers.

The smallest blocks - the black blocks - are like balancing sideways on a tightrope in ski boots, and are for those who have developed exceptional balance skills.

On a balance board without boots, most of the work of balancing would happen at ankle level. The Trainer is used with ski boots because with ankles ‘braced’ by boots you can't balance by using just feet movements. 

 

On the SkiA Trainer, you have to use your whole body. You have to actively engage your hips, shoulders, head, arms, and hands to balance and stay centered. 

 

The skills needed to balance on the blocks are highly focused and dynamic - it's a surprisingly intense workout that really engages the leg muscles and core. For anyone recovering from injury, it's a safe, progressive way to retrain balance, proprioception, and increased range of movements. 

It’s a unique and patented challenge – no other balance trainer works this way – and, because it’s exactly the way that you balance on skis, it's a uniquely effective ski trainer. 

It’s also great fun for all ages. Challenge yourself, and challenge your friends!

Hugh Monney,  BASS (British Alpine Ski School)

"There is a sweet spot on each ski, a place to balance, a place to be".

"Your number one priority is to find this place on each ski,

so that you can become familiar with it, balance upon it,

press through it and pivot about it".

"When you balance here your ski will be stable, so you will feel safe;

and yet it will turn easily, so you will feel in control.

Your body will balance and move much more effectively.

If you balance elsewhere, you will be fighting against your boots,

every turn, all day, every day"
