Developed for skiers by skiers
The ThoraxTrainer™ was the first ski-ergometer able to imitate cross-country skiing with a smooth and realistic feeling of skiing on snow.
Authentic Movement Pattern
The ThoraxTrainer™ was originally developed specifically to train and improve strength, endurance, core stability, technique and VO2-max for cross-country skiers.
96% Correlation with outdoor skiing
A research project from Umeå University (Sweden) shows a correlation of 0.96 between the ThoraxTrainer™ and cross-country skiing. In other words, you can predict your performance on skis from your performance on the ThoraxTrainer™ with 96% accuracy.
Monitor your Improvement
The ThoraxTrainer™ is used by professional and leisure skiers who want to benefit from the very efficient training. The ThoraxTrainer™ computer enables you to evaluate your training and technique in detail, helping you to improve your performance in the ski track.
VO2-max & Endurance
The ThoraxTrainer™ has a very high impact on your cardiovascular system that will improve your VO2max and endurance very quickly to an even higher degree than training on skis or rollerskis.
The ThoraxTrainer™ also has a high impact on your core muscles that improves your skiing on snow in both the classical and skating techniques. Exercises with double and diagonal poling on one leg at a time will particularly have a huge impact on your core muscles and balance. This will improve your classical technique on the uphill and your skating on the flat and slight uphill.
