One in a series of lockdown videos designed specifically to keep our skydiving muscles in shape

Flare Strength & Coordination, by Axis Flight School

Flaring muscles

A simple exercise with bands that you can do at home or in the gym to maintain or better your flaring muscles. Great way to work at a symmetrical flare.

We want to get away from that ‘milking the cow motion’ and this exercise will help even it out”

Meet: Niklas Daniel

I am passionate about flying; be it my body, a parachute, or an airplane. It fills me with a great sense of fascination, curiosity, and purpose.
Coaching grants me the opportunity to share my skills and experience with those who have a desire to learn. I believe in building skills on a solid foundation and giving my students tangible evidence of their progress.

My coaching method is methodical yet holistic – incorporating physical as well as mental training, in a positive and constructive learning environment. I strive to find the perfect balance between ability and challenge for optimal engagement and enjoyment. My biggest reward as a coach is the joy of celebrating a student's "lightbulb moments", as they achieve their goals.
