Learn XC-Skating is aimed at anyone who wants to learn to skate from the ground up and improve their technique.
“I love skating and the training it provides. Many can benefit from developing their skating skills, as many learn wrong from the start. Acadyme’s skating course gives you a thorough understanding of the ‘gears’ in skating and how to best use them, something that is missing on the internet today,” says Erik.
The course consists of ten video parts, in total about 60 minutes, a workbook with training sessions and technique exercises plus a podcast interview with Erik. The regular price for the online course is $39. The course language is English, with subtitles in English, German, French and Italian. The course will be released at the end of May 2020.
“We are happy to offer our first skating course and to have Erik as an instructor and coach at Acadyme. His experience and knowledge of skating make us confident that this course will be completely unique,” says Jojje Borssén, founder of Acadyme.com
