StoneFit: Sportsmetrics™ - Winter Conditioning

A 6-week program scientifically proven to help avoid ACL injuries and improve performance.

2 sessions per week, Mon & Wed with a Sportsmetrics™ certified physical therapist. 

$350 per participant

Some knee injuries simply cannot be avoided; but many non-contact injuries are the result of poor technique or lack of strength and conditioning. Skiing and snowboarding use muscles differently from other sports. It’s easy to get fatigued and slip into bad form, which puts you at risk of landing or falling badly and tearing your Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL).

Our 6-week, highly individualized injury prevention program is designed to build your speed, agility, flexibility and strength; and to train your body to position itself safely when skiing or snowboarding downhill and landing jumps.

The program combines the knowledge and ability of The Stone Clinic physical therapists with a series of evidence-based Sportsmetrics™ drills and plyometric exercises to:

  • Increase neuromuscular control
  • Improve postural control of the upper body and trunk
  • Correct imbalances in muscular strength
  • Correct jump/land technique

Shape up for the ski season and prevent injury.

When Serena Williams was penalized during the US Open, she turned her anger against her accuser—the umpire—rather than on her opponent. She lost. At the same event, when Roger Federer suffered from the high heat and humidity he couldn’t wait to get out of the poorly designed Arthur Ashe tennis stadium. He lost.
