Flexafit is where the figure skaters take their off-ice training to the next level! This program is packed with everything the figure skater needs to develop their on ice skills. We offer the following programs: Figure Skater Bootcamp, Flexibility & Stretch, Plyometrics & Off-Ice Jumps, and Dance Fusion. All of our programs are taught by certified instructors with a figure skating background.

Figure Skater Bootcamp

Figure Skater Bootcamp is a sport specific fitness program designed by Signe Ronka, International and National Competitive figure skater, Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist and NCCP 3 National Competitive coach. The program includes specialized focus on proper warm up exercises, with active, dynamic and sport specific components, sport specific conditioning and a flexibility component.

Some key features covered in the program are:

  • Anaerobic circuits to improve lactate threshold so skaters can get through their solo without getting tired.
  • Plyometrics, explosive exercises off one foot, bounding type, vertical jump work to improve height in jumps and quick twitch on rotation.
  • Core/Balance: stability exercises, muscular endurance exercises, cross rotational core exercises, back exercises, balance exercises.
  • Upper Body- work on developing all the muscle groups in the upper body to help improve quickness on take offs and in-air positions.
  • Lower body strength- work on developing all the muscles in the lower body in order to generate speed, explosive power, and proper balance of anterior/posterior muscle groups.
  • Coordination/Speed/Agility- developing power, quick start, reaction time.
  • Injury Prevention exercises- work on stability drills to strengthen both superficial muscle groups and deep muscles used to stabilize body to prevent injuries
  • Flexibility- increasing range of motion in joints for better functional performance, increase flexibility through various stretch techniques

Skaters who join these classes will see rapid improvement not only in strength off the ice, but will notice more power when they skate, height in their jumps and general speed improvement.

Flexibility & Stretch

Stretching is extremely important in not only injury prevention, but returning the muscles to their original state after a work out or on ice session. In this class, we focus on developing range of motion in the joints, as well as strive to get every skater closer to the splits. Being able to do the splits is an important part of being a figure skater, as most of our spins, field movements and skating require beautiful lines and extensions. The kids love this class because they can finally relax their muscles and mind after a tough skating session.

Plyometrics & Off-Ice Jumps

This class is designed for skaters to improve their centre axis of rotation, as well as their rotational axis. The class begins with multiple quick twitch exercises that are done stationary, which improve spatial awareness and proprioception. We then move to across the floor jumps with a focus on biomechanical principles. Finally, the class finishes with a focus on plyometrics (being able to generate the greatest amount of force in the shortest amount of time) through box jump techniques that Signe has created to help improve vertical jump and quickness on take offs.

Dance Fusion

Dance Fusion is a program we developed specifically for figure skaters. Often times skaters take extra dance classes that are restricted to movement and flow. Each class covers various components of dance, where skaters learn a little bit of every style of dance including: ballet, modern, salsa, cha cha, jazz, hip hop, waltzes, etc. It is truly a joy to watch these kids develop their dance skills and body awareness even after just a few sessions.
