Off-Ice Training

Braemar City of Lakes Figure Skating Club has several off-ice training programs. The programs offered by BCLFSC are designed for figure skaters. We offer ballet, conditioning, strength, pilates, and aerobics.

Our instructor, Lisa Zamarripa (formerly Mangiamele), works in classes and individually. Her services include strength, flexibility, and core stability training. Lisa will assess each athlete according to their individual needs, to improve and balance their over-all athletic performance.






Lisa’s focus on core strength, flexibility, muscle balance, and posture and alignment  will improve, maintain and enhance a skater’s performance on the ice.









Lisa’s Qualifications


Off-Ice Training is essential for Figure Skaters!  The sport of Figure Skating requires strength, flexibility, core connection, body awareness and more!  Classes at Braemar Ice Arena focus on a variety of elements needed to build the skater’s over-all potential through sport specific exercises and movement skills. The athlete will progressively develop stability, balance, core strength and flexibility through a combination of training methods such as, pilates, stability ball training, dance and stretching routines to achieve a higher fitness level and enhanced on-ice performance. It is important to prepare and maintain strength and mobility of the spine to prevent skating related injuries.
