Skiing & Snowboard Fitness
Despite being a boarder I jumped on to the skis first. The bindings were simple and easy to get into, they had only one strap, but felt very secure. Once I was trapped in I put the emergency stop band onto my wrist and got into my skiing stance ready to begin. I felt strange at first, very aware that I was in a gym, as soon as I was comfortable and began to turn I was amazed at how real it felt. Tim took me through the interactive workout that you follow along watching the screen in front of you. I started out easy with squats whilst going straight before moving onto short radius turning. As I got used to the Carver the speed and steepness of the decline was increased. The skis were really responsive to my movements and I really felt like I was on the mountain working out over mogul terrain. The focus was on fitness which I definitely felt as I got off, but there is no doubt that my technique had improved during the short session.
The Woodway Carver was officially launched in March this year and has featured in Men’s Health Magazine, as well as the spring 2019 issue of BASI News. In the meantime if you want to experience the Woodway Carver you’ll have to join Third Space City gym in London.
