Eric Peterson, - Basalt, CO

"We're a small team in a tough section, yet our results have steadily improved. Besides the results I feel that the training plan is very easy to follow and it stresses skiers the right amount and gives them the rest that they need."

Dave Johnson - Duluth , MN

"Just wanted to give you guys a big shout out after a great ski season. I started XC skiing 4 years ago and I have loved every minute of it. After participating in a couple roller ski clinics with CXC, I decided to join CXC online and started the Advanced Training Program in November. I have no doubt that the phenomenal training program you provided allowed me to reach and exceed my skiing goals - in particular to make the 1st Wave at the Birkie."

Todd Brown - Groton , CT

"While some find weekly workout structure to be the reason to join CXC Academy, I find the videos of dryland strength and mobility to be outstanding.

I'll see you in the park doing funny walks. Thanks."
