WELCOME NOTE FROM THE FOUNDER

Thanks for stopping by to check out Flexafit!

My name is Signe Ronka and I’m the founder of Figure Skater Bootcamp Inc.

In short, I was a former National and International medalist in the Junior level representing Canada at Junior Worlds, Junior Grand Prix’s and the Junior Grand Prix Finals. I was often plagued with injuries one after another, which took me out of competition in 2006, where I finished top 10 in Senior Ladies at Nationals.

I started this program in 2010, with the goal to help skaters train properly off the ice and prevent injuries. It all started with a couple of my own skaters training outside the rink and grew over time until I started up my own studio called Flexafit.

I am a Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) and also NCCP 3 Certified National Competitive Coach. Together with my experience in skating and fitness, I designed a very sport specific training program that takes into consideration movements from our sport, energy systems used in skating and training techniques that are geared to on ice demands.

Flexafit is the ultimate package of off-ice training for figure skaters. Not only does it include Figure Skater Bootcamp, but all the other essentials of training for

figure skaters such as off-ice jumps/plyometrics, dance fusion, and flexibility/stretch. You can get everything you need for off-ice training here at Flexafit with the best qualified instructors.

Check out our programs here at Flexafit to get a detailed description of each class. Give me a shout if you have any questions about our programs and services we offer. I would love to provide you with the appropriate guidance.

Looking forward to meeting you!

Stories

Signe has a great insight to athlete development and understanding of the needs for figure skaters. It was great to see Signe working with our young skaters in our Center with such enthusiasm and passion. I am very much looking forward to further our collaboration with Flexafit here in Rovaniemi, Finland.

Thank you for making time for us… It was a pleasure to have you here and the kids really had a good time. From a one coach to another, the depth of knowledge that you brought and demonstrated was truly refreshing. I am truly grateful for your passion and experience and definitely see your impact on the skaters and the sport.

Lynnell MossDirector of Skating, Airdrie Skating Club

Thank YOU Signe! It was so wonderful to meet you and spend time with you. I know the girls really miss you and you made such an impact on them – not just with the program but more importantly with who you are. You are such an amazing representative of what Sport should be and an athlete should become. One can teach all the skills but it is the character and the honor in competing that can be challenging to instill. Thank you for coming to Airdrie and not only making them better athletes but better people.

Jeanine SchillVice President, Airdrie Skating Club

What an AMAZING EXPERIENCE!!!! Thank you for sharing your wealth of knowledge with us. We have so much to learn and it's such a privilege having you as our mentor.

Susan MaraisLicensee, FLEXAFIT South Africa

I'm a big believer in strengthening and preparing your body for the ice, especially doing off-ice exercises that zero in on your specific sport and your individual weaknesses. Signe has designed a program that will raise the level of each skater and at the same time have them smiling every step of the way.

Thanks so much Signe Ronka for your amazing program. We admire your professionalism and dedication in helping skaters to develop in many ways. Proper off ice training is essential to a skater's development and we have definitely joined the best studio and it's totally worth the drive downtown! Most importantly, the kids LOVE the program and having so much fun!!!!! We are so fortunate to have you come to Unionville Skating Club as well to provide our skaters the opportunity to benefit from your wonderful program.

Team is doing great. Came first in their first skate this weekend at their first competition. They absolutely looked stronger and more fit! It made me proud. Awsome, thank you! I am seeing a great progress. I can't thank you enough!

Michelle SnowCoach, Oakville Edge Novice Team

Sofia won today and I thought you were a big part of this medal. Your boot camp has helped Sofia a lot and I just wanted to say thank you!

KatrinaSkating Mom

I wanted to say first that as a skater's mom I am a huge fan of your site. I love that you endorse strength and preparation so that these young skaters can build their practice in a safer way. With such emphasis on spectacular jumps and interesting spins in the sport right now it is so important to prepare your body to do those. I wish we lived closer to take advantage of your workshops and classes. If you ever consider having a weekend workshop then maybe we can come for the weekend as we are not far from the border.
