A First for Cumbria

A unique fitness class starts in Keswick this month.

B-SMART Fitness & Keswick Climbing Wall are teaming up to deliver an exercise class to get skiers and boarders fit for the coming winter season.   “B-SkiFit” is a specially designed fitness programme that aims to increase core, cardio and lower body strength as well as improve general fitness levels, all essential to get the most out of you snow-time and stay injury free.

The class will be run by Qualified Personal Trainer Ben Jones at the Keswick Climbing Wall every Monday until Easter at 6.30pm.

This unique fitness class came from a conversation between Debbie Beament from Keswick Climbing Wall and Ben Jones from B-Smart Fitness, Keswick, while joking that a ski holiday is anything but a “holiday” and that you really need to get fit to get the most out of your week on the snow.

Debbie Beament from Keswick Climbing Wall said “A few years ago, I fell skiing and detached my cruciate ligament in my left knee.  This was basically down to being not fit enough and pushing myself too hard to keep up with everyone else.  I was talking to Ben about this and mentioned that a class specifically for snow-sports enthusiasts would be a great idea.  I have the floor space at the climbing wall and Ben has the expertise of designing and running exercise classes, so the idea was worked on and B-SkiFit came about.  This is a great example of businesses working together to produce a unique project”

Ben Jones from B-SMART Fitness said “The class is like no other in Cumbria as far as I know.  It is newly developed and ideal for anyone interested in getting fit for any outdoor activities and general wellbeing, not just skiing.  We are looking to develop overall fitness and the class is suitable for all levels, so don’t be discouraged if you’re a bit unfit just now, come along and see what B-SkiFit can do for you”.

The first class was held on Monday 17th November 6.30pm at Keswick Climbing Wall and each session is £5.50.  Please arrive at 6pm to register.
