Fitness & Flexibility for Ski Season

Back by popular demand … our “functional fitness” program, presented by two-time Olympian Scott Macartney. Scott will take us through a “functional fitness” class focusing on the demands of skiing and the need to prevent injuries. Take advantage of this free program to learn from a true expert on conditioning to be your best outdoors. Dress comfortably and be prepared to do some work! Think of it as a warm-up for months (hopefully) of great ski adventures.

About Scott: • CEO of World Cup Dreams Foundation • Two-time Olympian, Alpine Skiing • 12 years on the U.S. Ski Team (retired 2010) • Head FIS Coach, Crystal Mountain Alpine Club

When: Thursday November 3 at Seattle REI, 2nd floor. Doors open at 6:30. Program begins at 7:00 and ends at 8:45.
