What people are saying:
1) Momentum, Sport Physio Division Newsletter :
"This book gives a great overall picture of the different aspects of training required to become a finely tuned skier.
It set up as a training guide and an educational tool for coaches, therapists, and athletes.
Furthermore, I think that it is important to mention that tyhe principle author has surrounded himself with some contributing authours,
which are all apecialist in his field."
2) Ken Read, President, Alpine Canada Alpin :
"Fit to Ski “Practical Tips to Optimize Dryland Training & Ski Performance” is the latest resource to help
you become a better skier and athlete. The Canadian Alpine Team places high priorityn on conditioning. Our Coaches know that
specific can help each athlete improve to the next level. "
3) Ski Canada Magazine :
"Fit to Ski, is easy to follow and includes numerous photos
and diagrams to explain the concepts of sport specific training for skiing. Endorsed
by Alpine Canada and the Canadian Ski Coaches Federation it is an excellent practical
resource for all skiers, coaches, parents & therapists -.a 'must
book every skier needs in his or her library. "
4) Dr.Ray Bradley, New Zealand :
"A new book has just been given a special place in my library alongside
such ski classics as Warren Witherell's How the Racers Ski (1972) and Witherell
and Evrard's The Athletic Skier (1993). Like these others, it will -
I believe - play an important role in the education of a generation of
ski racers, young and old. Keep in mind, too, that a lot of what the
book has to say isn't just applicable to elite ski racers. Any skier,
at any level of accomplishment, needs to know about matters such as injury
avoidance and treatment, and the kinds of physical preparation that will
make one's ski season safe and enjoyable."
"At first glance Carl Petersen's new 332-page book Fit to Ski looks like dry material indeed- but wow, what a treasure trove of practical, get-fit information.
The Vancouver physiotherapist and fitness coach to Canada's World Cup stars has crafted a comprehensive, user-friendly guide to getting in shape for winter - useful for elite athletes as
well as Joe Blow Skier. Divided into easy-to-flip-to sections, the book covers the gamut from physical and mental training to nutrition, stretching and suggestions for out-smarting ski
injuries. Lots and lots of photos demonstrate technique. Detail is deep yet unboring - Petersen even offers exhaustive info on how to exercise on an airplane to boost conditioning while bound for a ski vacation.
Particularly clever: boxed, large-print callouts delivering pithy advice from the author. Among them: "Don't just ski or play to get into shape, get into shape to ski and play,"
and "Start wearing your goggles a half-hour before going on the hill in order to allow your eyes to adapt to the colour
shift on your retina..." Our advice: Buy this book before fall - and your pre-season training time- is over"
6) Ski Magazine:
"After 20 years as a physical therapist for the Canadian Alpine Ski Team, Fit to Ski author Carl Petersen knows ski training. And
after digesting this 332- page guide book, you will too. Topics range from general training to the nitty-gritty of stretching, avoiding
injury and eating right-all geared toward competitive skiers. A spiral-bound format makes it user-friendly, while Petersen's credentials
ensure that it's a resource you can trust."
