Are you Frustrated that you aren’t Getting Fit, Toned or Losing Weight despite skating regularly?
Are you developing bad habits like pronating edges, a short glide or a V-ing Setdown?
Are you feeling pains in your ankles, knees or feet after a certain amount of skating?

Any of these could mean your general skating technique is a bit “off” and something needs tweaking.

I can help you (individually or in your Group) identify exactly which parts of your skating need attention and quickly, systematically eradicate those errors and replace them with correct practice. You’ll see and feel differences almost immediately.

A student said recently it was like “waking up” to what’s really going on with your skating….

Practicing your skating and training by yourself is hard. It’s so easy to skip a session or work at a low intensity (because nobody is watching, right)?

I get it. That’s why gyms exist and why people have come to Skatefresh classes (for 17yrs) to improve their skating and make sure they are practicing RIGHT.

“Asha, you’ve probably done more to better the health of the nation than our current government”.
– Liam Andrews, UK


Now you can train with me, as if you are in my class, in a group or on your own.

You can enter the competition….or not, I don’t mind.
I just want to you help you skate better.


The “Skate for Fitness Challenge” involves creating a Training Team of 2, 3 or 4 people and using the Course to Practice Together.

This means you split the Registration fee between all team members and can access the course material individually and come together on skates regularly to practice.

Let me help you to Skate Well (graceful, relaxed, effortless, smooth and powerful), while also Improve Your Fitness.

Let me help you Train in a way that actually Strengthens your Lower Body Muscles (that’s Legs, Glutes, Back, Abs and Core). You can tone and sculpt your body by doing these Exercises on skates which simultaneously improve your technique, making you safer and eventually faster.

The MAJORITY of skaters can skate, but they skate badly (pronating edges, V-ing set down, inefficient backwards Push, Toe Flick, unstable at higher speeds, no endurance to name but a few).

Skating badly increases the risk of falling and being injured by poor technique (especially foot, ankle, knee and lower back problems that develop more slowly over time).

Only when you skate Technically Better will your Skating feel Comfortable, give you Fitness Benefits and look like you know what you’re doing.

Choose your Level;

Beginner – Basic Stride (for the Challenge, all skaters must be Beginners with less than 6 month skating).

Intermediate – Fitness Stride (all skaters have been skating a minimum of 6 months).

Advanced – Double Push (Your success with the Double Push will depend on how solid your Fitness Stride is before you begin. So using the Intermediate Course first will increase your chances of mastering the Double Push.)

I used this Video Course to teach a group of Disney actors in Argentina. I sent them this List of Video Exercises as a “Starter Pack” to get the actors skating properly. Then I taught them to dance on skates. See how they are doing on “Soy Luna”.

Free Preview Trailer Lesson

With your Team you watch the Videos and take it in turns to be “Asha”, reading out the Focus points and problems, just as i would inreal class. I will TEACH you to be each other’s INSTRUCTORS.
I did exactly this with Disney in 2015.
Check out the High Quality Footage, Unique Graphics that help deepen your understanding and the “Practice-Friendly” format.

As you can see, this is not a YouTube Video. This is like being in class with me only I teach you how to be my eyes. This Trailer is 4% of one Course, just a Taster…

“My friend and I are using Asha’s Online Course together to train our Fitness Stride for Berlin Marathon in September. So far so good. I’m noticing that my leg and back muscles are not as strong as I thought and the exercises are challenging but I feel them working.”

“It’s way more fun training together than alone.”

– Dietmar Reuschel, Germany

Enter The Competition

The Challenge comes with a Competition and Prize (if you chooses to enter). It is not compulsory but if you do, I promise it will help motivate you and produce more rewards.

Take a “Before” Video of each Team Member just skating (from the Front and from the Side – 15 seconds) before you have even watched any of the Course. Keep this footage safe.

After some weeks of Training (the Challenge ends 31st October 2017)  you then take an “After” Video of each team member (from the front and from the side) and you submit these videos as your team entry to the competition.

What’s the Prize?

The winning team  is the one showing the most improvement in various aspects of their skating including Edge Control, Recovery Position, Glide Quality, Efficiency etc  and they’ll receive 2 hours of FREE Video Coaching from Asha.

Video Coaching is where you send in your own videos (of anything you are working on) and Asha will analyse them with Whatsapp audio comments and video instructions for further practice.

This process continues over a series of weeks with multiple video exchanges and homework corrections. The 2 hours is split between the team and can take place anytime in the 6 months after the competition. 1 hour of Video coaching usually costs $200 so this Prize is worth $400.

What’s Next?

  1. So, First go and Find your Team Members and give your Team a Name (this should be your Username).
  2. Decide which Level(s) you will Register for.
  3. Film your “Before” Videos if you want to enter the Competition.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What happens after I purchase a course or package?

A: After you submit your order you’ll create a username and password for this site. This is where you will access your course in the Dashboard (you will need a working internet connection to access your course). You will also receive an email confirmation of your order.

Q: Can I wait and buy later this year?

A: No. The courses are only available to purchase for a limited period. After that the doors close and wont be open again until next year. There are certain windows in the calendar year that encourage new training and this is one of them. You need to act now in order to make an impact with your skating this year.

Q: Will you make any exceptions for the Registration deadline?

A: No. After CLOSE DATE public enrolment closes for the year. Register now while public enrolment is open.

Q: Are my credit card details secure?

A: Yes. Paypal is a secure payment portal accepting credit card payments and transfers.

Q: Can I get access to the course all at once or will it be delivered in pieces?

A: Yes, you will receive the entire course every time you access it. You can scan the entire course first and then hopefully choose to work through the exercise sequence systematically over several months. You should not be able to do the entire course from the beginning. You will reach a level where the current exercise is very challenging and not yet easy and perfect and that’s where you should remain, training ALL the previous exercises to that point. In time that difficult exercise will be mastered and you can then ‘graduate’ onto the next one in the sequence.

Q: How long will I have access to this course?

A: Forever. Once purchased the material is yours. If you need to make a break from skating you can then return and still access your course(s).
