“Don’t hide your scars… They make you who you are.”
“It was 1994 when i was diagnosed non-Hodgkin lymphoma at the age of 9. Without realizing it, i spent the next two decades of my life working in sport, health and fitness from a variety of different angles. Through my own experience i realized the huge lack of possibilities for chemo and former chemo patients to do activities and really get their lives back.
Today, as Founder and Head Coach of Subzero Coaching, i am looking to make my contribution.”
Free Ski Lessons & Guiding – Zermatt, Switzerland
A good chunk of my time is spent in Zermatt, Switzerland, delivering ski instructor courses.
Trying to juggle the calendar at best of possibilities, time will be allocated for free lessons to all those coming out of Chemotherapy and looking to spend time in the fresh air.
I am aware of the physical conditions one might end up after an enjoyable time in the hospital (not). Therefore, together we’ll try find the best rhythm for our ski together, without stressing out.
By default skiing is not recommended to patients currently undertaking chemo. However, if your doctor is happy to sign a waver allowing you to do so, welcome onboard!
Subzero’s Ski Dates & Bookings
When in Zermatt in Winter we are committed to make time each month, dedicating time for free lessons to former patients.
Dates will be updated as our schedule allows, though please get in touch if you already have your holiday set, we might be able to accommodate to your calendar.
For Summer dates please be aware ski lessons can only take place on the Matterhorn Glacier (check it out here), at an altitude between 3500 and 3900 meters. As well, blue runs are very limited, so ski days are recommended to skiers with of at least intermediate level.
