About SkiXtreme

Like it or not, snow is on the way. If you ski, now is the time to begin sharpening your skills and strengthening those legs. To those ends, consider Ski Xtreme, a new piece of fitness equipment uniquely designed to buttress users for the rigors of downhill skiing, especially the back and forth of moguls.

Yet non skiers also have reason to take note. For Ski Xtreme has applications beyond the slopes, offering serious exercise for the core and lower body. In my book, Ski Xtreme gets points immediately for creativity and individuality. I'm always looking for different styles of movement, and this device's lateral pattern breaks just about every mold. Especially my forward-moving habit of running.

A skier who disappears every weekend during the winter, Scimone sought a way to stay in shape during the off-season, a way to increase his endurance while developing ski-specific muscles and motions.

That Scimone came up with is simple but intense, like the sport itself: two platforms suspended by springs from a frame with tall, upright handles. Hop on, grab the bars, and sway side to side. Vary the resistance by adjusting tension in the coils or adding or subtracting springs. Go as far, fast, or slow as you wish.

It's a vision of minimalist design.. No electronic or hydraulic components.I would point to its effectiveness. In my experience, all it takes is a few minutes on the Ski Xtreme to feel the burn. For most people, 30 minutes would be more than sufficient.

Holding the handlebars ensures a stationary upper-body and directs all the effort of moving to your hips and quadriceps. Let go, however, and it gets even tougher. Now you're also using your core to support yourself and keep from falling off.

Then again, a slip or two is probably inevitable. Unless you've just stepped off the mountain, acclimating to Ski Xtreme takes a couple of minutes. Hence the machine's sole accessory, wraparound handles.

And your quads aren't the only leg-muscles that come into play. Because the entire machine is tilted forward at a slight angle, to mimic a downhill position, you're also using stabilizers in your calves and ankles. One aspect of skiing Ski Xtreme doesn't simulate: bumps. The exercise is completely nonimpact. Still, like me, you may feel a bit of heat in your knees, a result of holding a partial squat for minutes at a time. Not surprisingly, Scimone has big plans for Ski Xtreme. He envisions mass-production and marketing across the country. There's a chance he'll get there. I've seen a lot of fitness equipment, but nothing quite like this. I don't even ski, and I'd be glad to add it to my arsenal.

SkiXtreme began operations in 2009
