Two Olympic skiers walk onto a nordic skate skiing track. One is an Olympic Nordic Skier and coach and the other an Olympic Mogul Skier, seeking to be a skate skier. Neither knows the others background. What are the chances of this encounter?
As I met my instructor Aram Hajiyan, I notice his tag simply stated that he was the Nordic Center Manager, which is the truth. But never did he mention during our one and half hours together that he is also an Olympian who competed for Armenia in the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, Utah. In hindsight, I think it was better I didn't know that until afterwards. The following is exactly what happened at the Solitude Nordic Center.

With the Holidays come and gone, many might be staring down an upcoming ski vacation or season and realize they’ve been so busy in the office and with other life obligations that they’re not feeling particularly ready physically to be on the mountain. No problem, I’m going to offer suggestions below so that we can tackle this dilemma together to help ensure that we all have a great ski season.
Below I will outline some exercises that will help you to find your way to a safer time on the mountain. These exercises can be done in your office, as they will not require the use of equipment beyond an office chair, a pair of socks and a couple of washcloths/hand towels with a mat being optional. I suggest choosing four of the exercises daily and doing them while taking a break, while brainstorming, or before lunch.
