Frank Feist


As a member of the German junior national team in Nordic Combined during the 1980s, Frank Feist benefited greatly from the structured ski training approach developed by the German Skiing Association. Since starting to coach with CSU in 2004, Frank has worked to implement the German XC ski development program at CSU by helping to develop the CSU training curriculum, testing program, and technique instruction. Time permitting, he coaches some of the CSU dry land modules: the Saturday Littleton rolls, the spring sprint program, the spring/summer Tuesday intensity runs, and, during the fall, the Thursday rollerski interval and Tuesday Jester programs. His overall goal is to help young racers to train and race smart, become self-responsible, and develop a lifelong love for the great sport of cross-country skiing.
