Personal Coaching with CXC
Central Cross Country Skiing offers several training options to support preparation for the Nordic ski season. In April, at the beginning of the training year, the CXC receives questions about the "right" training-plan choice. The answer can vary greatly depending on the athletes and their needs.
However, there is advice that CXC gives any athlete competing in the Masters ski category. Look at your overall life, the needs of your family, the needs of your job, the state of your health, as well as any possible constraints, and then choose a plan that supports all of it. Do you doubt that your life can fit around an online Masters training plan developed for the masses? CXC agrees. That’s why as well as its three levels of CXC Academy online training plans (www. cxcacademy.com), CXC also offers "Personal Coaching."
Personal Coaching for Masters skiers allows participants to live more and train more, as the training plan is designed week by week by your assigned personal ski coach. Your coach builds your training plan around you, and even then, you can personally reschedule workouts if need be. Or you can just inform your coach to do that for you! CXC Personal Coaching uses Training Peaks’ online platform that allows you to see the workouts planned by your coach; to log the work you did either by hand or transfer it straight from your heart-rate monitor; to oversee your progress, fatigue and peaking towards an event; as well as instantly informing your personal coach of any changes needed for your well-being and to progress in the sport. To improve your ski technique, your CXC personal coach asks that weekly you send in a video of your ski workout, to be evaluated in your weekly video call. This is a timesaver and a great way to gain valuable ski knowledge.
A Masters skier from Iceland, Einar Kristjansson said, "I have been using the Personal Coaching program at the CXC Academy for almost a year, and it has been a great success. I have made significant improvements, and my training has been much more enjoyable since I started working with a personal coach at the CXC Academy. The program is customized for my needs, and I always have access to my coach when I need to make any adjustments. I was training for the 70km Marcialonga in Italy and 90km Vasa- loppet in Sweden, as well as for local races in Iceland, and the excellent preparation helped me achieve and surpass the goals that we set for the winter. This is a highly recommended program [staffed with] enthusiastic and highly knowledgeable coaches who are certainly worth using."
Do you have to be a race machine to access this program? Of course not! Though if you are, that’s fine. The CXC’S personalized coaching can accommodate the desires as well as support the goals of any level of a cross-country skier. Nordic skiing is a great way to stay healthy.

"Through the personal-training program, CXC coaches helped me be successful in training for and completing the 90K Vasaloppet," said Cynthia Flores. "My coach not only helped me build the endurance to complete this endeavour, my technical skills improved through coaching. I couldn’t have done it without this program! The weekly check-in calls were invaluable. They helped me stay focused, and my coach was able to adjust to my work schedule so that my training remained consistent."
