RACE TRAINING WITH HESTON BLUMENTHAL (Part 2)
On Friday 15th March our Academy director, Warren Smith, spent the day coaching Heston Blumenthal at the City Ski Championships (Momentum Festival) in Crans Montana. Warren’s been spending some time with Heston this season getting his skiing into shape. Warren skied with Heston for a day in December and a day in February. Even though it was only several hours coaching Heston has made some big changes in a short space of time as the video clip shows.
Warren helped Heston with his left turn which is his weaker direction due to a hip injury. On the video you’ll see an exercise that helped make progress and also see his decent in the race. There’s also a before and after clip from December and now.
Warren said, “It was a pleasure skiing with Heston. As you can imagine with his cooking skills he super technically minded and really understands the mechanics of the sport. We made big changes and are planning on continuing the coaching in the UK at the Hemel (Indoor) Snow Centre. It’s so nice skiing with people that are enthusiastic and positively minded”.
You can hear what Heston thinks about our Academy coaching on the video clip. Another happy customer at the Academy!
