A new app has been launched to help skiers and snowboarders get fit for their holiday.

SkiFit8 is from the makers of the SkiFit programme that launched last season, but instead of an eight-week programme, this gives skiers a short but sweet eight-minute workout.

It is fronted by Chamonix-based physiotherapist and clinical expert Neil Maclean-Martin who has more than 15 years of experience in elite sport. It is designed to kick start a snowsports holiday fitness programme or complement other fitness activities such as cycling or gym workouts in preparation for a ski trip.

“We launched ‘SkiFit8’ to give busy people a quick fitness fix as they prepared for skiing,” said Maclean-Martin.

“The good thing about it is that you can squeeze it in when it suits you, maybe as the dinner is cooking or when you get up in the morning, and if you like, you can do it more than once a day. I can’t stress how important it is to get fit for skiing or snowboarding.

“The app will help you develop strength and control, making your time on the slopes more enjoyable and meaning you will be less likely to get injured.”

‘SkiFit8’ costs £1.49 and the app can be downloaded from the iTunes App store or Google Play store now – just search for SkiFit8.

SkiFit is part of the ‘BeFitApps’ series, which also includes RunFit, TriFit and BikeFit (coming soon). For more information visit befitapps.com
