When you purchase a full membership, you are entitled to attend any zoom class provided by Mariposa School of Skating for the lockdown period until January 22, 2021
Mariposa provides five sessions per week focusing on both physical and mental aspects of training. It is very important for all of us at Mariposa that all athletes wishing to continue to train through this time are given the same opportunities. All Team Mariposa synchro skaters do not need to register for this product as it is already included in their program
For the growth of all Mariposa athletes who will be participating in off-ice workouts (Tuesdays & Thursdays) , fitness equipment for in-home use is highly recommended. If possible, we kindly ask that each participant has a set of medium to heavy dumbbells, a set of loop bands, a theraband/flex resistance band, a smooth foam roller, and a small (6-8”)pilates stability ball.
HIIT workouts (high-intensity interval training) will continue to be the primary focus in all athletes off ice training as It helps improve cardiac health and function, produce faster gains in endurance, and is an effective way in training fast-twitch muscles. However, when training month after month without mixing up components such as adding weights, resistance, stability props, etc., the body, brain, and muscles become less alert and challenged and thus, more prone to hitting a plateau. In order to stimulate growth and change, improve balance and posture, and increase muscle strength and power, resistance training is 100% essential. Cross-training between HIIT and strength will provide the athletes with an overall balanced body thus creating an ideal performance platform for the training year.
On Monday and Wednesday’s join Moving Art Instructors for Ballet, Hip Hop, Modern, and Movement classes to enhance your fundamental movement training as well as your performance skills.
Fridays will include Off-ice skating skills and turns with Mitchell Islam.
*Zoom link will be sent out on January 22nd to all registered participants.
