Lori Fung

Lori Fung has been working on flexibility with skaters at the VSC for many years. She was the 1984 Olympic Gold Medalist in Rhythmic Sportive Gymnastics. She has many accomplishments including Canadian National Team Coach since 1991, the original founder of Club Elite Rhythmics in Vancouver, as well as Member of the BC and Canadian Sports Hall of Fame. Lori’s class will focus on improvements in the skaters range of motion of all joints. The benefits of such training include: injury prevention with greater range of movement, skaters having the capacity to perform more difficult skills, improvements in the versatility of choreography for the skater, improvement in overall extension of body line, as well as improved shape and amplitude of the positions needed for spirals, spins, and basic landing glide form. Lori would like to remind all skaters that while flexibility work once /week will be suitable to make improvements, it is imperative that flexibility be worked on daily, not just during class time!
