Benefits of Skiing

You don’t have to wax your skis to benefit from this full-body impact-free workout: the SkiErg combines the aerobic and strength benefits of skiing and is available even when there’s no snow or you can’t get to the trails.

Nordic skiing is an exhilarating and aerobically demanding sport; the SkiErg makes this terrific aerobic exercise accessible to anyone. Skiing is impact-free and suitable for all ages and abilities.

Here's why skiing is a great choice of exercise:

  • Low-impact (easy on the knees and ankles)
  • High calorie burning (because it uses so many muscle groups)
  • Works the upper body (involved throughout the pull)
  • Works the lower body (the legs complete each pull)
  • Works the core (the abs and back are integral to the skiing motion)
  • Effective at building both aerobic fitness and strength
  • A great way to relieve stress for overall health and well-being
