Meriski helping guests prepare themselves physically for the demands of the ski slopes as the winter season opens in Méribel.
The luxury catered-chalet operator has appointed a Meriski Ski Fit coach to devise personal training plans for guests heading for the French ski resort this winter. Silas Cullen, a New Zealander with extensive experience of competing in and training athletes for endurance events, will lay the foundations for a fantastic ski experience.
Meriski guests signing up for the programme will get their own personalised web page hosting a daily routine prepared by Silas, with explanations, videos and photos of how to perform each exercise, tips on how to avoid fatigue, plus unlimited email and phone contact. It costs £150 per person and the fee comes with a 100 per cent money-back guarantee.
