Homer Nordic (HN)

Welcome to the Homer Nordic Ski Fitness Program 2020/2021

This is a 5-month ski fitness program for skiers training for races and for skiers who want to stay in good shape and challenge themselves to reach new levels in their workouts and skiing ability. We encourage all levels of skiers to come join us!

Philosophy

Our commitment is to building a community of athletes of all levels. No matter your ski ability, fitness, or age, the workouts are designed for every individual to improve their xc ski technique and strength. As part of the program philosophy, we aim to share the experience of learning, challenging ourselves, and supporting each other’s athletic goals. Homer Nordic strives to be a fun, supportive environment for adults of all abilities to inspire each other and to build camaraderie through a shared joy of skiing and fitness.

Weekly Workout Notifications

Weekly workouts are sent out via email every Sunday. Workouts are also posted to the webpage under the tab “Weekly Workouts”. The location of each workout will be posted in the weekly email. Weekly workouts will be password-protected starting Nov. 19th. The program also has a Facebook page that is used for event reminders and for members to communicate among themselves. We highly encourage all members to use the Facebook page particularly if you are looking for others to join you on your own ski, etc. Please make sure the coaches have your current email address! If you have registered for the program but are not receiving the weekly emails, you can update your email address via the contact form on our webpage (http://kachemakwomensnordic.com/).
