Plan Description



This fall we put together a new system of training plans to help YOU get the most of out of your training for skimo! 

The plans are split into three main types: 


1. Skimo FINISH plans, designed for getting you across the finish-line of your long objective or race. These plans are long (21-weeks) in order to fit most people. If you've been training a lot, then you can start later in the plan, if you have time and haven't been training much, then start at the beginning! 


2. Skimo FAST plans, designed for getting you those with speed on their minds. Do you know you could finish your goal race/objective, but want to be able to do it FASTER than ever? Then pick a FAST plan to get you there! 


3. Skimo BUILD plans, designed for increasing your capacity. Not quite sure what your goal is, but know you need to start training? Get a BUILD plan! These plans stand alone as a training block. 



Designed by world class skimo coaches at the Summit Endurance Academy!

Wolf Creek Sunrise

These plans provides a structured and periodized training schedule in order to maximise your fall fitness gains. Each week contains intervals, strength, skills training, and a long weekend workout. 

Purchase of these plans includes our comprehensive Skimo Training Guide, which explains how to use your training plan plus email access to Summit Endurance Academy coaches at any time for questions that you may have about this plan, videos explanations of strength exercises, and Badass Coaching style motivation.
