WORKSHOP OPTIONS

Option 1

3 Hour Workshop For Your Club

Skaters will train with Signe for 3 hours which includes: 

  • Warm up (30 mins)
  • Off-ice jump session (45 mins) 
  • 4 different work out plans (25 mins each) 
    • Metabolic circuit— we focus on interval training that increases lactic acid threshold 
    • Plyometrics—we focus on improving vertical jump height and power 
    • Functional core training— we take movement patterns from on the ice to build core strength to help with control and energy transfer 
    • Lower body strength training— we take movement patterns from on the ice and focus on balance and muscle strength components 
  • Flexibility and cool down session— we focus on stretches such as beillman, y-stands, and the splits 

Skaters will go home with a hard copy of some of the material they learned with Signe during their workshop. 

Each workshop will include a complimentary 30 min parent/coach/skater discussion on the importance of off-ice training.

Option 2

Customized Workshop

Skaters will go through a similar workout as Option 1, however clubs can request a customized schedule and focus on training areas of their choosing. This option is perfect for clubs wishing to provide skaters with workshop experience that is more in-depth and personalized over the course of a number of days.

Option 3

Clubs can either choose from option 1, which includes 3 hours session and 30 min discussion, or we also offer two longer options of 4.5 hours or 6 hours total with one group per day.  The additional time can include an on-ice session as well as goal setting and nutrition discussions as well. This is the perfect package for clubs that want to have a full day of information packed learning.

WHAT OUR WORKSHOPS LOOK LIKE

TESTIMONIALS

Molly is an Allstar cheerleader and is in her 7th year of the sport. This year she made the team she’s always dreamed of making, and wanted to really bring her best to her team. Although she is naturally flexible, pulling body positions with the correct technique while in the air requires more than just natural flexibility. Molly started working with Martha last summer, and immediately we could see that Martha had a very special and unique knowledge and expertise. Every week I witnessed the magic of Martha’s methods, as she identified areas of tightness and possibility that Molly would never have thought of on her own. Molly loved going every week, always leaving feeling invigorated and proud of her accomplishments with Martha. Not only did her technique in pulling her air positions improve significantly, but most importantly her confidence in her flexibility skills has soared. We cannot thank Martha enough for her expertise, kind manner and dedication to making Molly a better athlete.

Workshops

I can’t express my gratitude for the incredible program you provided for our skaters this past weekend!  Signe, you are so talented and have such an admirable passion for educating and training skaters in a super positive and engaging learning environment.  We would love to bring you back!
Skating Director, Westchester Skating Academy, USA

Being part of the Flexafit Family has been very motivating not only for me as a coach, but for my skaters who can see and feel the difference in their skating abilities. The exercises are challenging, but fun and the holistic approach Signe incorporates to cover all aspects of this incredible sport of figure skating, makes Flexafit is the perfect training partner for any aspiring athlete. I particularly notice the difference in my younger skaters who are learning correct technique from the start, and their progress has been phenomenal. Having only qualified to skate our SA Nationals for the first time this year, Taytum Rosseau became the youngest SA Juvenile Champion, having only turned 8 a few days before Nationals.

After last Sunday’s class, Emilia successfully got her double loop, double toe and Flip and Lutz clean this week!! It would be nice to keep up the pace and maintain the muscle memory

Amazing experience for the skaters! Loved having Signe in Massachusetts! Great workouts, pump techniques, warm up, etc!

Julie Conrad

“I want to personally thank you for your inspirational work this week in Rovaniemi! My 7-year old has been on the ice with you, and yesterday I listened carefully to her feedback all the way home. Without any mutual spoken language, you appear to possess a beautiful way of connecting with children. She praises your training methods especially in the areas that matter the most to a small child: you smile a lot, you come physically near to the child, you come to the child’s level, you make eye contact and throw high fives when she succeeds. She particularly values your way of presenting the elements yourself and the way you perform them with such exalted poise and with joy.I dare to say that I am not the only parent who has been positively overwhelmed this week! As a parent, this has been the kind of training methodology I wish my child to receive.  It is evident you love what you do. Keep on doing it!”, H. K., Finland, Parent

Jenna has improved a lot since last year. I give you tons of credit for that!  Thanks for all you do, Signe!
