The site is about cross-country skiing, cycling and endurance sports.  We do training and activities for the enjoyment of sports on all levels at any age in high spirit inspired by the following quotes:

“Amour du Sport
- Jeannie Longo, Legendary and still active French cyclist, official website. 

The goal is not to win races, but we do this now so we can enjoy the same activities ten years from now when our peer group won’t be able to get out of a chair.”
- Torbjørn Karlsen, Good friend and cross-country ski coach of Olympic and World Cup Champions.

Personal Video Analysis

We are having great success with video motion analysis.  We collect film clips of your skiing and employ editing software in analyzing technique, alignments and motions.  You receive a DVD showing the assessment and more importantly methods and graphics on how to improve your skiing along with positive images of selected model skiers.  Please contact us for more info or check the Personal Training tab.  



The films capture up to four scenes/techniques in one skiing style, classic or skating.  Film clips in real time are broken down to slow motion and stills where overlays, visual effects, side by side comparison to efficient model skiers and an instructive narrative are applied to analyse your current skill set and providing specific improvement tasks.  The sessions cover personal hands-on, one-on-one training in the improvement work items.  The DVDs will play on your PC or TV/DVD and provide a good reference in your ongoing training. 

See additional options under Personal Training & Pricing and contact us for more details.
