The Norwegian TV2 showed Dec. 1 an interview with the Olympic gold medalist in cross country skiing, Øystein «Pølsa» Pettersen, where he tells about how he has exchanged weight training and sit ups with functional training in Redcord.
Øystein explains how this has made his core stronger and that he's a more stable skier thanks to his Redcord training.

"Redcord training is extremely efficient since you can train our whole body at once" Øystein says. "What's so great about it is that you can adjust the exercises to be as hard or as easy as you want and train together with people who are on a completely different level than you - I can have work out sessions with my Dad! (...) I have great faith in this way of training" he adds.
The Olympic champion also has a challenge for everybody; "I can promise you you'll feel the workout and get sore (...) If you haven't tried it yet - try out the slings and call me in two days!"Click here to find exercise programs in Redcord
