Thank you, Lisa Marie Mercer, for this fresh and relevant look into skiing fitness. Open your Heart with Winter Fitness is comprehensive, fun and informative for every level skier - from the entry level beginner to the instructor. --Deb Armstrong, Olympic Gold Medalist, Giant Slalom, Sarajevo 1984, PSIA Alpine Team Member
Like a narrow rut line through a steep mogulfield, Lisa's book draws you in and takes you for an exhilarating ride through the bright, sparkling landscape of her mind and knowledge. On the way, you will gain wisdom about skiing amidst the achingly-beautiful high places of the world, and about the most important piece of equipment you will ever need while you're up there: your own body. --Martin Bell, Four-time Oympic Ski Racer
Open Your Heart with Winter Fitness bridges the gap between the scientific jargon of exercise physiology and the functional fitness of the outdoor enthusiast! The practical application provided will assist one in improving his or her overall fitness performance on and off the slopes. --CarolAnn, MS, Education Director, FiTour
