I am going to visit the world barefoot center in the beginning of June. This would be the beginning of our ski season. I know I’m not going to be in shape. I was wondering what kinda workout tips I could get so that I can maximize my experience. So that I can make it through an all-day secession. And if anyone has done this at WBC…[Read more]
Hey Matt. This site hasn’t been used much at all. I’m willing to answer any questions you have about visiting a school. Are you going to the WBC for one day or a week?

I just know my feet like a good few long runs, then 2 weeks later I am in decent shape. If you can get a cold water run in on a Boom at least prior to going it will help
