Which DVD is appropriate for me/my skater?

All of the information about this question is included in the chart on the bottom of our homepage or www.sk8strong.com/dvds.html.  Please email us if you don't fit exactly into an age/level category, and we should be able to help you choose the appropriate DVD.

What is the difference between "The Competitive Skater" and "Adult Training"?  I don't want the Adult DVD to be too easy for me...

There are more plyometric exericses instructed in the Competitive DVD,  as it is not appropriate for an adult skater to be completing excessive dryland jumping.  There are only slight variations in some of the other exercises, yet both DVDs can be progressed to a highly advanced level to challenge a skater.  The beauty of each DVD is that each includes progressions of exercises to cater to every level of ability.

How often do I/does my skater have to exercise?

Every skater's schedule is different.  Some skaters do other sports in different seasons, some are recreational skaters, and others train on the ice 5-6 days/week.  Sk8Strong recommendas completing a Sk8Strong circuit workout at least two days per week, and the number increases the more competitive you are.  Sk8Strong is happy to develop a training program for you to coordinate it with your schedule, at no cost with purchase of a DVD.  Your training program will be designed to be meet your own individual goals.

What type of media player can I play the ipod/mp4 videos on? Are they downloadable?

The ipod videos are compatible with any media player that plays mp4 files, including ipads and tablets.  They are not downloadable, as the files are too large for our server.  The files are shipped to you on CD.

How do I get the $10 discount for purchasing multiple DVDs? It doesn't automatically show up in my shopping cart.
