Ski conditioning classes at the Westin in Avon include video tips from Mikaela Shiffrin

AVON — Olympic Gold Medalist Mikaela Shiffrin wants to help you get ready for the upcoming ski season with the new eight-week Winter Sports Conditioning Class at The Athletic Club at The Westin.

Shiffrin — who was named The Westin Riverfront’s “Resident Gold Medalist” this past summer — has recorded a series of video tips on how to incorporate many of her tried-and-true exercises to achieve optimal on-mountain performance, including using the BOSU, Kettlebells, agility ladder hurdles and medicine balls. Trainers Christy Madison, Jeff Draper and Mike Dorr will then help you work Shiffrin’s exercises into your fitness routine.

The eight-week class will be held starting Monday through Nov. 26. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 6:15 a.m. or Mondays and Wednesdays at 5:30 p.m. The Winter Sports Conditioning sessions will all be held in The Athletic Club’s Movement Studio.

Enjoy the Winter Sports Conditioning classes for free by becoming an Athletic Club member. Join by Sept. 30 to take advantage of the fall membership special of no initiation fee, a more than $100 value. Membership plans start at $120 per month for individuals, or $180 per month for families.

The sessions are open to the general public at $15 per class, based on availability. Registration is available 48 hours in advance of each class, either online at or by phone at 970-790-2051. Class attendees are also encouraged to check out the new Miki’s Corner functional strength cage in the Club’s CompuTrainer Studio. Designed with input from Shiffrin, this new space features TRX, bumper plate weights, sand bags and more.
