What does training for aerials skiing look like in the summer?  Travel through a day in the life with Travis Gerrits.  No snow, no problem.

It’s time to get this day started! Fresh coffee always starts my day.

Gym time!
It’s been six weeks since I had PRP on my knee. Lets kick today off with some electrocution squats!

1 on 1 training sessions gives me the chance to work on the smallest details in the gym right now. Core stability and leg strength is key!


It’s time for a post workout swim at the office! What a beauty day out here in Quebec City, homeland of poutine.

Loving my course at Stanford University. Trying to get some work done before the weekend!



Watched ‪@PoulinKayak on the live-stream of the Junior World Championships today. Nice win in that first 200m sprint man!


Afternoon activity of trying out the kayaks that the World Cup team use! Tricky – even with a good core!!

Finishing my day where it started – my office!! Beautiful and productive spot to visualize my triple backflips!
