Group training concepts

ThoraxTrainer has created revolutionary Nordic GX Training concepts taking Nordic skiing indoor in different inspiring formats.

Each training concept activates all major muscle groups in the body, improving strength, core, endurance and stability, at the same time in a fun and gentle format. You burn more calories and get more fit compared to any other measure of exercise.

Thorax_Concept_StrongBody_260

If you are seeking for the most time efficient, ultimate, wholebody workout that combines endurance, strength, core-stability, coordination and FUN – THIS IS IT! Watch intro video.
The ThoraxTrainer Strong-BodyTM session consists of 10 to 15 exercises in the ThoraxTrainer, working through all muscle groups in HIT interval training. Within 15 to 30 minutes you have burned more calories and worked more muscles than ever before in such short time boosting your cardiovascular system like a Nordic Skier. The Afterburn will last for 36 to 48 hours.

Thorax_Concept_CoreCircle_260

In a circuit training combining ThoraxTrainer with floor exercise like push-ups, burbies, sit-ups, plank etc., this concept offers a playful combination of cardio and functional training. Watch intro video.

Calorie burn and body toning are at stake. In short in- tervals (90 sec) you change between different exercises either in the ThoraxTrainer or on the floor. Time flies and before you know it, you have done 30 minutes of high intensity intervals, strength training, core stability and coordination in one session. This will save you time. Moreover, it is FUN.

Thorax_Concept_SkiShoot_260

Turns training into a game like a real biathlete. You completely forget that it is physically really demanding. Extremely effective workout of the body and brain, with a high calorie burn! Watch intro video.
SKI+SHOOT is for everyone and not only for crosscountry skiers and biathletes. The change between deep concentration during shooting and high-intensity physical exercise is CHALLENGING and FUN at the same time. Each participant is equipped with a ThoraxTrainer and a laser rifle. You change between exercising in the ThoraxTrainer in short intervals interrupted by shooting for 30 to 60 seconds to hit an electronic target panel with 5 targets. Each missed target is penalized with extra skiing or an extra workout, for instance 5 push-ups.

Thorax_Concept_SkiBike_260

Nominated GX concept of the year in Finland.

An intensive training concept combining two of the worlds toughest sports: Nordic skiing and cycling = high calorie burning, strength, endurance and coordination! Watch intro video.

The concept combines ThoraxTrainer with indoor cycling or spinning. The SKI+BIKETM concept exercises alter- nately your upper and lower body. The shift changes the use of big muscle groups, and makes it possible to main- tain a higher cardiovascular intensity for a longer period. This will burn more calories than any other exercise. It is very time efficient and versatile, and you will experience – after just a few training sessions – a progress that you had never thought possible!

Thorax_Concept_SkiRun_260

Probably our toughest concept. Running and Nordic skiing combined in one training session where participants are using a ThoraxTrainer and a Treadmill alternately in short, high intensity, intervals.

For instance 3-minute intervals on the ThoraxTrainer followed by 3 minutes running on a treadmill with as many reps as you want.

If you need to get in shape very quickly – this is the concept for you.
