Behind the scene

P2 was able to provide Kingsbury with a specific training for mogul skiing. Our coaches have created special exercises for this “sprint” sport. The run is usually around 250m and is done in average 25 seconds. Since incorporating Powerwatts classes to his training, Mikael says he has an easier time canalizing his energy between runs
