Nordic High School Team is designed for athletes who want to refine their skills, improve their aerobic ability and compete. Trainings are more structured and include aerobic, anaerobic and strength training. Cross training opportunities are presented that include balance, coordination, endurance and speed activities. Athletes will learn to use both low-intensity aerobic training, high-intensity aerobic training and anaerobic training to improve race fitness.
