can anyone recommend a top notch fitness coach who can also conduct a ''functional movement analysis''
(specifically for skiing) in the vancouver/whistler area as below? while i see people in that in my area, i'm not
sure of the reputation/legitimacy of this organization/philosophy so am open to other practitioners too from other disciplines (ref from ski coaches etc)
I'm 49 and looking to ramp up my ski skills over summer for next season (getting out another 55x), yet there are certain persistent physical imbalances that are a bit of a hindrance in my skiing... i.e., i have one leg ''2/3"of an inch longer (don't know if it's truly skeletal, or a hip imbalance or whatever but one leg turns easier than the other)...
...also finds it affects my cycling: ie the longer leg is 1-2 inches further along the pedal to properly line up both hips for power transfer (don't use cleats..not a racer).
I would like to have someone with an excellent professional reputation who works with ski athletes and is qualified to do a functional/movement assessment (?) and then from there make out a set of exercises/streteches to improve any imbalances so I can be in much greater skiing shape come this fall...
as far as my gear goes, I am also looking into getting my boots shimmed too with custom liners etc, as well from Sure Foot or Can Ski or Top Shelf Boots in Whistler
once an additional allignement of my boots is also done.
(feel free to recommend any top ski coaches at whistler/blkcomb too)
I don't mind paying $$ if the quality is there...and even if I had to go visit another part of BC or to WA or OR for such a sport specific assessment, I'd be open to it, too. (could be a nice vacation).
cheers and thanks for any feedback
