SKIFITTING

SKIFITTING for cross country skiing

We specialize in double poling technique as used in the long-distance cross country ski races such as Marcialonga and Vasaloppet.

The double poling technique has evolved over the last 20 years, now special double poling training machines such as the Skierg has gained a huge crowd, also within the fitness environment such as cross fit. Other machines as the Danish invention called Thorax trainer also gives an enormous benefit to skiing like training. More rare training equipment as the XC mill exists as well, here you can put your rollerskis on and train with poles to get the most out of both balance and skiing like movements as close to the reality as possible.

ABOUT SKIFITTING

We have chosen to focus on solely the double poling technique for the skifitting service. Physiotherapist, Sport and exercise medicine practitioner Bjørn Toft behind PHYSIOINNOVATION is an adept Danish cross country skier within long distance skiing as being a cyclist through many years. Bjørn, also a founder of the DANISH SKIMARATHON TEAM that focuses on long-distance skiing events such as La Diagonela, Marcialonga and Vasaloppet.

 

The bikefitting service has some similarities to the skifitting as the initial assessment is based upon a sports physiotherapy testing and screening of your movement abilities together with an understanding of your level and sports background (with eventual injuries etc.). This gives an insight to both movement quality and coordination and a more precise foundation to adjusting and optimizing movement quality and efficiency during the double poling technique.
