On-Ice Coaching Team

 

 

Kat Arbour – Off-Ice Trainer

Ice Dynamics® is exclusively owned and operated by Kat Arbour. Several years ago she saw a need for specific and comprehensive off-ice training for figure skaters. She combined her lifelong involvement in figure skating and her education in exercise science, physical therapy and biomechanics to conceptualize, develop and implement off-ice training programs for skaters at every competitive level, from beginner through elite.

Kat attained USFS gold test medals in figures, freestyle, and dance. Her education includes a PhD in biomechanics, a masters in exercise science from University of Delaware and a second masters in physical therapy from Hahnemann University (now Drexel University) in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She is a certified strength and conditioning specialist (CSCS) through the National Strength and Conditioning Association. When she coached on-ice, she held PSA Senior Ratings in Moves and Freestyle. Her combined academic education and figure skating knowledge gave her the necessary tools to develop optimal off-ice training aimed at peak performance.
