Time to build the strength we need for Winter 2020/21.
In these wildly uncertain times, outdoor activities + home workouts can be our anchor
Burn off stress & build functional strength (the kind you need to do the funky things that winter sports & life demand!) so you can avoid injury and fully enjoy your time outside this winter.
It's hard to have fun outside when your body is tired or hurt, so instead we'll build our strength in the living room so when it's time to play we're ready!
Focused & light-hearted bodyweight workouts designed to keep your body challenged & discharge stress while building the kind of strength you need for outdoor adventures AND pandemic/election/winter resilience.
- 35-45 minute workouts
- Train three days/week
- Three six-week periodized training rounds (see visual below) that progress through the winter
- Join for the Midwinter Round (starts November 28) and/or Spring Round (starts January 18)
- Train mental strength & resiliency alongside physical strength
Ski Babes come in all shapes, sizes, colors, & abilities.
My style is down-to-earth, body-positive, and mental health-informed.
You won't find any body-shaming, comparison, or pressure to override your body's signals here.
Instead, I coach using positive encouragement that helps you listen to your body & find the right challenge level for you. I promise to deliver a kick-in-the-butt when you need it, as well as reminders that "moving is winning" and "you've got this."
And yes, we have badass winter athletes inside, but don't be intimidated by that. We also have new moms, weekend warriors, and even people who "dread winter." The workouts are super adaptable to meet your body where it's at, and help you move toward your goals, whether they're big ski adventures to coping with winter mental health.
I have noticed significant strength gains both physically and mentally. I am better equipped to continue moving (skiing, biking, etc.) when I become fatigued; thanks to training with Sarah!
These workouts have helped me feel stronger, less injury-prone, and better prepared to handle whatever the mountains decide to dish out. I also love that they're time efficient, so that when life happens, I know I'm not falling behind with my athletic goals.
Health Coach & Super-mom
Sarah is an amazing trainer and you can easily do the workouts to your own ability and grow from whichever point you are starting from. The focus is on building strength and endurance and also the focus on FOCUS!
Wine Guru & SuperMom
It is rare to find such great explanations and details, which is especially helpful when trying new exercises.
I’m excited and encouraged to see how strong I am getting. I’ve worked out consistently in gym classes for the last 15 years, but this program took me to the next level.
This program was just I needed to achieve my goal of finishing a 100 mile endurance race. I became stronger both mentally and physically - this program has it all! Between the challenging, but fun workouts, incredible online community and fabulous resources, I came out the other side a stronger, healthier person!
Fishing Boat Captain

Financial support & equity pricing
"Sistering" is a construction term in which a post that's holding up too much weight is supported by additional posts on either side. This metaphor conveys what we're after: helping take some of the weight off those who are carrying a lot right now.
Especially for BIPOC, queer, disabled, bigger bodies, and others who are underrepresented in the outdoor world; we need more of you on the slopes and in the pictures on this page. We acknowledge and apologize for the lack of representation here. We're working to fix that, and in the meantime have a number of equity-priced spots available. We hope you grab one!
Apply for Sistering Support & Equity Pricing here (2 min application) Application deadline is November 28.
For those who would like to contribute to this effort, there is an option to donate to the Sistering/Equity Fund as part of your Ski Babes registration.
