Skiers Should Exercise Before a Winter Holiday to Avoid Injury

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Jan. 31, 2011) - Holidaymakers should indulge in some form of exercise prior to skiing, say experts, in order to get fit for the slopes and avoid injuries when they strap on their skis for all the fun in the snow!

Performing a few exercises beforehand means you have a higher chance of performing like a pro and being in tip top shape with some warm up moves. It all helps to get your body prepared for hitting the slopes - which can often be quite an intense workout – so that you don't just turn up and risk getting an injury.

Preparation for skiing can be done through a class or programme, which can be found nationwide or just by cross-training, running and cycling down at your local gym or out about. These will help to build up your endurance, strength and stamina.

Leading car hire firm, Auto Europe understand the importance of keeping fit before a ski trip and urge all holidaymakers to ensure they are properly prepared.

A spokesperson, commented: 'It is very important to make sure you build up the strength and balance in your legs and have plenty of sessions working out beforehand; some experts even advise up to six weeks prior to a trip. It is very beneficial to be used to exercise rather than just trying to get to grips when you get there, as then you can make sure you show your very best out on the slopes!'

Auto Europe can provide vehicles in the following idyllic destinations:
