We are excited to be able to offer CurlFit 101 this season at the club. Created by VCC curler (and yoga teacher and fitness nerd) Stephen Ewashkiw, CurlFit 101 is a six-week series designed to help curling athletes improve their strength, flexibility, and performance on the ice. In each 45-minute session, we'll incorporate a mix of fitness, yoga, and stretching to prepare your body and mind for your time on the ice.
Stephen will guide you through a series of exercises that target the specific muscle groups used in curling, helping you build strength and endurance while also improving your range of motion and flexibility. Whether you're a seasoned player or just starting out, this series is perfect for anyone looking to take their game to the next level.

In addition to the physical benefits, our classes will also help you develop mental focus and concentration, which are key to success in curling. You'll learn techniques for managing stress and staying calm under pressure, helping you perform at your best when it matters most.

Perhaps most importantly, our classes will help you recover faster from games and avoid injury, so you can stay in top form all season long. So why wait? Join us for this exciting series and start seeing the benefits for yourself!

Note: If you're considering coming to the series just before your league play and you're not sure you'll have the energy for both, don't worry. Instead of tiring you out for your game coming to CurlFit before you play will make sure you're primed and ready to have your BEST game. 

You don't have to be flexible, young, strong, into fitness or have a yoga practice to come to CurlFit. CurlFit is for anyone who wants to find more stability, more strength, a quicker recovery time, or a little more accuracy in their game.
Is CurlFit right for you? The answer is YES if any of these apply to you:
✔︎ Do you want more flexibility?
✔︎ Do you want more strength?
✔︎ Do you want better balance?
✔︎ Do you want to improve your stability when delivering?
✔︎ Do you have trouble repeating shots
✔︎ Do you struggle with "hitting the broom"?
✔︎ Do you want to sweep more effectively?
✔︎ Does your body hurts for a day (or more) after your game?
✔︎ Are you exhausted after sweeping for 13 seconds (which let's be honest feels like 200 seconds!)?
What you'll take away from the series:
= A pre-game sequence to get you ready to step on the ice
= A post-game sequence that will help you recover faster 
= A between-game sequence to continue your personal journey to build strength and endurance while also improving your range of motion and flexibility
Over six weeks Stephen will work with you to help you build your strength, mobility, flexibility, cardio and clarity so you can bring all of that onto the ice this season.
