DressurFit - how it works

Why DressurFit®?

… it’s all about the rider

Often it is the rider who prevents their horse from developing its full potential and not the other way around. We invest a lot of time and money to help improve our riding and to continually train our horses. But if we as riders don’t also work on our own fitness, then there will always be the possibility that certain underlying issues prevent us from seeing the very best that our horses have to give.

Be as fit as you expect your horse to be.

Motivating Workouts

Your 12-week programme

The DressurFit® programme consits of three advancing levels.

Weeks 1-4

Level 1 begins with functional fitness training – just three 15-20 minute workouts each week – focusing on improving your mobility, posture and stability when riding. All the workouts are suitable for both beginners as well as advanced riders.

We also ask you to take your initial DressurFit® analysis test. Your strength, weaknesses or imbalances will be highlighted at this point. Based on the results of the test, you will receive further corrective exercises tailored specifically to you. We call these your Homework.

Weeks 5-8

Week five of the programme brings with it automatic access to Level 2. Here, the workouts focus on strengthening the muscles riders need for good posture and a deep, stable seat.

Four weeks after taking your first DressurFit® analysis test, you will also be asked to carry out a second test. Compare your results from four weeks previously and see how you have progressed. Any weaknesses or imbalances will be targeted through the new Homework exercises that you will have access to in your account.

Weeks 9-12

In the third level, the difficulty of the workouts increases. Core strength and riding specific muscles are targeted further, giving you more stability, body control and balance. You will also improve your stamina and co-ordination.

A third DressurFit® analysis test is also made available to you – four weeks after taking your second test. Once again, you will receive further personalised Homework exercises based upon the results of this test.

6 Months Access

We understand that life may sometimes get in the way of the 12-week programme. With this in mind, and so that you have enough time to make the most of the programme at your own pace, you will have another three months free access to the DressurFit® programme. Not only that, but you will also have access to the entire DressurFit® Online Gym including new workouts and yoga videos specifically designed to improve you as a rider.

DressurFit®-Club

After the six months you can automatically join the exclusive DressurFit®-Club. Club Members have access to a completely new, advanced DressurFit®-Test series, new personal Homework and the entire DressurFit® Online Gym to help you progress as a dressage rider and to achieve your goals.

Once you have confirmed the link, you can pay for the 12-week programme via PayPal, credit card or SEPA direct debit. You can then get started straight away!

Equipment is optional:
For some exercises, we recommend the use of certain pieces of equipment so that you can train as effectively as possible. This is the BLACKROLL®, the BLACKROLL® Ball and the elastic Powerbands in different strengths. If you already own similar equipment, feel free to use that for your training. All DressurFit® equipment can also easily be purchased in our DressurFit® online shop.

For Level 1 of the 12-week programme, you will get three 15-20 minute workouts that we suggest you do each week. It doesn’t matter, if you train in the morning or the evening, just remember that the most effective way to train is at the time of day when you are feeling fit, ready and energised. You just need to figure out what works best for you.

After week four, Level 2 of the programme will automatically be unlocked, and you will get access to three new workouts. After a further four more weeks, Level 3 is unlocked, and another three workouts a week will be available to you.

Of course, should you choose, you can exercise more than three times a week, but try and plan at least one day a week for rest and regeneration. If you can’t manage your three workouts a week, then that’s no problem. Do what you can and at your own page – one or two workouts a week is better than nothing.

You can do your first DressurFit® test for free. The test has been specifically designed for riders and shows in simple terms, your strengths, weaknesses and any left-right imbalances that you may have. As a member, you also get Homework exercises tailored to you and your test results. These are short, corrective exercises that help improve any weaknesses that you may have. You can do your Homework on a daily basis. This will only take you approximately 5 minutes every day.

Four weeks after undertaking your first test, a second test will be unlocked for you. Four weeks after that – a third test is made available, and four weeks after that, a fourth test. With each test, you can review and re-assess your progress made and you will receive new and revised Homework exercises.

The Homework exercises are short, corrective exercises – each of which take no more than 2-5 minutes to carry out, and that can be done each day at a time that works best for you. Members will receive two Homework exercises per week immediately after taking the test.

Our body only works as well as its weakest part. Overall improvements in your fitness can be optimised by specifically focusing on your personal weaknesses and imbalances. You will achieve better body alignment in the saddle and become more equal and balanced on your left and your right side.

You will be amazed how fast improvements can be felt in the saddle.  Most of our members see great progress when they take the second test after only four weeks.

Of course! The 12-week programme is made up of Level 1, 2 and 3 – each of which has been designed to work further upon the fitness developments gained in the previous level. We are confident that with each new level, you will see significant progress and results with your riding fitness.

All exercises and workouts have been designed to allow you to perform them at a level that is good for you and at a level matches your current abilities. Variations on each exercise are often explained, making them either a little bit easier or a little bit more challenging. You might find some of the exercises too difficult in the beginning… but stick with it! They will soon become easier. For those who want more of a challenge, try to increase the number and intensity of the workouts that you perform each week.

Remember: listen to what your body tells you, and train at a time of day when you are feeling fit, ready and energised. If you have any questions or if you need further advice, then contact our support team including in-house sports scientist and trainer Marcel Andrä at support@dressurfit.com

Your aim should be to try to complete the programme in 12 weeks.

We understand however that work, family and everyday life often get in the way of finding the time to get fit for dressage. That’s why we give you a total of 6 months access to complete your programme. If you need to take a break or interrupt your training, just start again where you last left off.

Stay flexible and workout how you want, when you want.

Joining DressurFit® gives you 6 months full membership and access to all content. This gives you more than enough time to complete the programme and then continue your training further!

Your aim should be to try to complete the programme within our recommended 12 weeks, but don’t worry if you don’t achieve this.

Take the chance to further focus your training on a particular aspect, raise the difficulty level or put together your own training plan.
