FIT FOR WINTER 2019

Aug 1, 2019

Felix Klemme has developed some special fitness exercises for JACK WOLFSKIN for a full-body workout in the Outdoor Gym. After all, winter sports are physically demanding. A good level of fitness will improve your technical ability and reduce the risk of falls and injuries.

Outdoor Gym

A varied workout programme and exercise in the fresh air are an ideal way to keep fit. In view of the upcoming winter season and winter activi-ties, the exercises have been specifically designed to strengthen the leg and core muscles. A good level of physical fitness also improves your technical ability, enhances the enjoyment of winter sports and reduces the risk of falls and injuries.

But keeping fit in the winter months is important for everyone. The exercises that make use of your own body weight train all the muscle groups. They aren’t complicated and are easy to do outdoors.

JACK WOLFSKIN has developed appropriate outfits for exercising in winter conditions. The products are suitable for all fast-forward activities. They are nice and light and very breathable, while still offering the necessary insulation.
