Meet Your Neighbor: Travis Weaver
Ski and snowboard fitness trainer
I used to sell software for a living and I got divorced and I wanted to make snowboarding a bigger part of my life. I teach snowboarding at Alpine Meadows. My dream is to have an indoor board/ sports training facility. I have always kind of lifted weights and have been into extreme sports. I saw a void. These are non-traditional athletes and training historically has been geared toward traditional athletes.
I am originally from Evergreen, Colorado. I went to college in Wyoming. I love living in the mountains and I am pretty happy not working in the corporate world anymore. I love being my own boss.
I definitely see some people starting this time of year and in the next few weeks. I really see a surge in the summer and pre ski season. I just got finished running three snowboard training classes.
I kind of have constant goals all year long. I am always trying to learn more to provide my clients with superior product and service. I want to ski or snowboard up to 50 days this year and balance getting everyone else in shape at the same time. One of the main areas that I would like to continue education on is the Egoscue method. It is customized stretching and exercises to alleviate pain and correct posture to improve performance. I go to trainings weeks at a time.
This is my main deal and I have a 12-month-old Australian Shepherd, Rocky, that I play Frisbee with. I spend a lot of time with my girlfriend, Karey. We snowshoe, ski and hike together.
Probably only about five. But I always do stuff with my clients. I’m pretty active.
I’m looking forward to more snow and looking forward to working with more clients using the Egoscue method and training. I already work with some professional snowboarders and skiers.
