Off-Ice Conditioning

In keeping with healthy lifestyles and supporting enhanced form on the ice The Philadelphia Skating Club and Humane Society offers Off-Ice Training classes to members and their guests during the club season. These programs are optimized specifically for figure skaters but are excellent for all.
