      Figure skating is a sport that puts significant strength and flexibility demands on the body.  Some skaters have natural strength, balance, and core strength that will take them through the lower levels of skating quickly, but the majority of skaters need to improve upon each of those attributes in order to progress to higher levels.  By completing an off-ice training program at least twice a week, skaters will progress their on-ice skills at a faster pace, and be able to handle the strength demands of jumping, spinning, and longer programs.  All skaters in this program will receive a customized warm up routine and off-ice workout they can practice before skating or at home.
