With the ski season only a few months away, we anticipate our Members will be itching to strap on their boots and dust off their skis. With the guarantee of an extensive wine list at the Club, as well as some of the best skiing in the world, we hope that Verbier comes to your mind when planning your next ski trip.
In advance of this, we are pleased to welcome Verbier’s premier ski coaching company and close friends of the Club, the Warren Smith Ski Academy, to London for an evening dedicated to pre-season preparation, accompanied by drinks and canapés.
Warren Smith will lead a Ski Technique Lab, a series of six quick tests which have been designed to analyse your biomechanics, movement ranges and stability. These results will highlight your weaker turn direction which Warren and his team will show you how to fix, as well as provide advice to enhance performance and prevent injury.
Andrew Davies, a Consultant Knee Surgeon (and keen skier!) from the Fortius Clinic whose client list includes many elite athletes, will then discuss methods of knee injury prevention. Lastly, Equinox Tier X coaches will instruct on strength and conditioning exercises, injury prevention techniques and movement and flexibility preparation, before the evening closes with a Q&A.
For a little background, the Fortius Clinic is the largest private orthopaedic clinic in the UK, providing world-class, evidence-based orthopaedics and sports medicine.E by Equinox St. James’s is an exclusive gym boasting personalised services and the finest amenities which will unlock your highest performance.
For those intending on making an excursion to Verbier this winter, we will be running ski days with Warren Smith over the course of the season. Keep your eyes trained on the Verbier events programme for updates.
