Reduce Employee Injuries and Promote a Thriving Team Culture

An injury prevention and performance program is the ABSOLUTE BEST way to prepare if you ski, ride, or work on snow, so you get stronger in the right muscles and avoid injuries.

Implementing a program across a department or organization is EASY with ACL Strong's online platform that employees can access from anywhere

Employees Get Hurt...especially when working on SNOW and ICE

Doing the right exercises (the right way) strengthens the body from the inside, making people more resilient on the snow and ice.
Your employees will:

Learn how to SAVE THEIR KNEES (right now and long-term), so they can ski or ride for as many years as possible

Start MOVING BETTER so they actually slide with more control and precision

Become more BULLETPROOF no matter what their fitness level is or how experienced their joints are

Introducing: The Ski Area Program

For Employees, Volunteers, and Industry Pros

Here's what you get when you join the Ski Area Program...

You'll get access to our flagship course, the Snow Course

Ski Area employees return every year to be guided through the most up-to-date training plan in the industry. Designed specifically for skiers and snowboarders, this is a snapshot of what you'll get in the latest version of the Snow Course...and you can do it ALL from home, on your own schedule.

The Intro Module

Weekly Exercise Modules

Each module includes a Dynamic Warm-up to get your body primed and ready for activity, followed by 4 simple exercises that will help you become stronger, more balanced, quicker, and more flexible. You’ll practice keeping your knees in a safe position when you weight-shift or land, so you don’t get hurt. Each module slightly advances from the previous just as your body begins to adapt and get stronger!

Bonus Challenge!

Two more modules make for even more awesomeness and a complete 6 week training program! Once you get through the first 4 modules, you’ll be ready to take on the bonus challenge with ease. These modules will further enhance your strength, balance, and body control, solidifying the gains that you already made.

We designed this program specifically for skiers, riders, and on-snow employees who want to work and play hard on the mountain, without stiff/achey knees or torn ACLs.

Plus, we added some epic Bonuses...

Bonus #1: Ready-To-Shred On-Snow Warm-up

10 minute warm-up routine that can be done on the snow, in your gear, everyday, before you hit the slopes. This routine will get your blood pumping, joints loosened up, and muscles activated so you’re ready to perform at a higher level without getting injured.

Bonus #2: Mid-Season Recovery Add-On

3 more weeks designed to help you get across the finish line of the season feeling great! These modules revisit some of the strength and balance exercises from the Snow Course, while focusing on feel-good stretches to help you recover after long-days on the hill and a demanding season.

Bonus #3: Office Hours with Dr. Leslie (say whaaaaat?!)

Dr. Leslie will hold virtual office hours via Zoom! This is the first time offering this incredible value! There will be 4 office hour sessions scheduled throughout the ski/snowboard season so you can join in anytime and get your questions answered.

Why you CANNOT AFFORD to ignore this opportunity to train smarter with ACL Strong

You'll have access to the entire program through July so you can revisit any of the courses as often as you'd like!

Our Members Know What's Up!

Great Course! Very Beneficial!

"I tore my ACL years ago and have two hip replacements. Before I started the course, I had to push myself up off the floor. Now, I can stand up without having to pull myself. I don’t have pain and people tell me I’m walking better than ever! Thanks for a great course!"

Jim Bredy

ACL Strong Rocks!

"ACL Strong rocks! I’m already feeling stronger in my legs and more agile. I no longer feel the pain and stiffness that I had before. Thank you!!"

Exceptional Value

"I feel there has been a noticeable improvement in my strength and balance. The format was easy to use and only took a little dedication from me. Great customer support and service to say the least! Thanks again for providing the exceptional value of the ACL Strong program."

ACL Strong for Life!

“Thank you Dr. Leslie for the ACL Strong program. I am 56 years old and have been skiing since 5 years old. This program re-focused my training on balance and proper knee alignment. ACL Strong for life!"

The mistake most people make...

The mistake most people make is they don't want to spend time or money on a fitness plan, especially "prevention", because they think they can do it on their own, or they think they won't get hurt.

...But, figuring out how to strengthen the right way and "bulletproof" your knees is a big job. ..and most people don't do it right, so they waste time and don't get actual results that improve their performance on the mountain. So what happens is they still end up getting hurt, and wasting a lot more time on doctor's appointments, medical equipment, and taking time off work.

...Not to mention losing time on the snow and spending it in rehab (especially if you tear your ACL...ouch.)

Some people think they can't do it on their own and they need a personal trainer. Sure, you can do that, but it's a lot more expensive and requires a significant time commitment.

If you 're like most and you want convenience, flexibility, and the MOST benefit out of the least amount of work, then an expert-guided home program is the way to go.

This is your chance to join me and thousands of other ski and ride professionals as we get fit, prepared, and bulletproof for another epic season on the mountain...without going to a gym or wasting time on the wrong exercises.

If your ski area has opted in to the ACL Strong Ski Area Program, then it would be SILLY and downright UNFAIR to yourself if you don't do it.

Bulletproof Yourself in just 6 Weeks!

You can be stronger, more agile, and more resilient on the snow this season (and every season) in just 6 weeks!

We got your back! We sincerely want you to succeed and feel better than ever on the mountain and in your everyday life. Not only do you have Dr. Leslie by your side, but you have a community of alumni and experts who are here to support you. Join us now and be in our ACL Strong Tribe for Life!

Frequently Asked Questions

The only requirement is a resistance mini band.  We highly recommend an unstable surface or balance trainer (i.e. BOSU or dyna disc) to get the most out of the balance/stability exercises, but it’s not required.  There are alternatives provided if you don’t have access to this, such as a pillow or foam pad.  We also show how to use a foam roller and stretching strap, but these are optional.  See our equipment page for more info.

You can enroll a group in 3 easy steps:

One: Complete our Ski Area form or Team Discount form.  We will connect via email and provide a quote for your group.  Once accepted, we can send an invoice and get started!

Two: You will receive Registration instructions for your group members to self-register on the website.

Three: All participants will have access to the program immediately and through the entire season (up to one year)!

***For staying bulletproof long-term, we recommend repeating the program every year, starting pre-season.

The Snow Course is not intended for rehab from an existing injury without an evaluation by a medical professional or physical therapist first.  If you are cleared to play a sport and have NO precautions for weight-bearing, range of motion, jumping, and lateral cutting, then you can participate in the course.  We highly encourage participants NOT to push into pain during the exercises.  We provide modifications for most exercises and participants should choose the intensity that they can perform with good form (and no pain).  We emphasize quality over quantity.  If pain is noted during an exercise, we ask participants to follow these steps:  1) Check your form, 2) Decrease Intensity or Impact, and 3) If pain persists, then simply skip that exercise.  After ACL reconstruction, we recommend waiting 9-12 months to participate in the course.  Once you are cleared for running, jumping, and changing directions WITHOUT pain or limitations, then you may participate at 9 months post-op.

Yes, I love interacting with members!  I encourage you to utilize the Facebook group for support as well.  Our community is amazing.

Yes!  We encourage teams, departments, and organizations to do this training.  Pricing is based on number of participants and grants a one year license to all who register with the team or organization.  Contact Us for a quote!

While the course is designed for individual participants, we understand that families may purchase the course to participate in together.  Doing the exercises together can be helpful for compliance, motivation, and keeping good form. Please keep the login credentials within your own family, as number of logins per day may be restricted and will impact tracking/progress through the course. 

The problem with searching for your own “injury prevention” exercises on Google or Youtube is that you are not getting a comprehensive program that addresses all necessary components of injury prevention.  It can be overwhelming to sift through hundreds of exercises, determine which are right for you, and make sure you are covering all aspects that are necessary for effective prevention.  You will likely stumble upon exercises that may or may not be appropriate for your level of fitness and body control. Choosing the wrong exercises, or doing exercises the wrong way, can be dangerous and may lead to injury.

Yes, you can log in from any device including your desktop, tablet, or mobile phone.

Now we have an app!  Be sure to download it from the AppStore or Google Play Store.

Purchasing the course independently gives you a personal license with lifetime access. 

If you are a team or organization, purchasing the course grants you access for up to 1 year.  The best way to continue to reduce injuries each year is by returning to this program with your team or organization each year.  Please see our Team Inquiry page.

A long-term maintenance plan should include continuing with neuromuscular training exercises for about 15 minutes, 2-3 times per week.  There are a couple of ways we recommend to do this:

  1. Repeat the course from the beginning, choosing the best options/modifications for your current level.
  2. Select exercises or modules from the course to repeat 2-3 times per week.
  3. Repeat the Snow Course or Classic Course before each season of your sport.
  4. Upgrade to the Elite Membership to gain access to more exercises, trainings, and office hours with me, Dr. Leslie, so you can stay strong ALL YEAR.  Plus, you’ll automatically get access to the newest Snow Course and Classic Course every year! Click Here
