Nordic Ski Lessons

Nordic Ski Lessons

While there is cross over with skiing and running, skiing has a much larger technique component, but even one lesson can turn a frustrating outing into a fun, invigorating experience. Sam’s 30 years of skiing experience and keen eye allow him to see the perfect cues to unlock the joys of this lifelong sport. By the end of your lesson, whether you’re new to skiing or honing your racing technique, you’ll move with less effort while going farther and faster in the process.

Email sam@cascadeendurance.com to schedule.

Strength Training

Strength Training

 

Alison and Sam are both certified Personal Trainers (by National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) and National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) respectively) and create programs specifically to meet your mountain and fitness goals. Starting with an assessment to unveil any muscle imbalances, they then put together a personalized program and watch form carefully to ensure you're lifting properly to get the best results.

Personal training sessions are available at the Mazama Athletic Club and Winthrop Fitness.

Pricing:
One on one: $60 per session or pack of 4 for $200
Semi-Private: $35 per person (2 people)
                       $30 per person (3 people)
Small group classes are also available.

LACTATE TESTING

We offer comprehensive on-site lactate testing and analysis in our Methow Valley training base. Using a straightforward blood-lactate test we can determine an athlete’s Aerobic and Anaerobic thresholds (AeT and AnT, respectively), which are the two crucial ventilation points we use in prescribing training intensities. Cheaper than a full metabolic test, lactate testing has the advantage of being mobile which allows us the ability the perform the test anywhere from a running trail, a road or track, or the side of a mountain. 

Testing includes administering the test, all the supplies, and follow-up analysis. You’ll go home with a summary of your results and training recommendations based on your unique profile. $100
