Cross Country Skiing in Helsinki


You cannot go to Finland and not go Cross Country Skiing. The country has produced many of the world’s top athletes in the sport and even on the street you see locals pumping sticks on the pavement to keep their rhythm and their fitness up to scratch. We will visit one of the country’s top indoor schools to learn the skills and tips to keeping fit on the skis and if the heavens play their part and we get the first season’s major snowfall we’ll then head outdoors and light up the trail. Ask anyone who the fittest athletes are and they’ll probably say Cross Country Skiers, they’re always off the couch!

Highlights of the week include:

Mon Dec 15 – Get it right talk to the students of Lauttasaari school

Tues Dec – Training session at Fressi Fitness

Wed Dec 17 – Seminar for staff and management of Fressi with Paul Brown Mr Retention
