I hope you and your families are enjoying a relaxing holiday week. This is one of my favorite times of year, as the holidays not only give me an opportunity to spend some more time with friends and family, but I also enjoy the cooler temperatures, getting to check in with some of our college and junior players that stop by while they’re home for break, and it’s both the middle of the hockey season and the start of NFL playoffs. There’s a lot to appreciate about Winter!
On that note, I wanted to take a moment to thank you for being a loyal supporter of my work. Whether you’ve been around since I first started writing in 2008 or accidentally stumbled upon a blog post in the last week, I truly appreciate you being a part of this site and my life. Over the last 5 years, I’ve had countless awesome conversations about training (and life) and have developed several great friendships with readers. It’s always fun for me to meet someone at a seminar that I’ve emailed back and forth with, or bump into a hockey parent or coach at a rink that has been a newsletter subscriber for years. I started writing back in ’08 because I love the game of hockey and wanted to help share information that I thought would benefit other people who, like I did as a player, wanted to work hard to improve their game, but may not have access to great information. I had no idea then, and continue to be amazed now, that it would lead to so many relationships and opportunities down the road.
In the interest of maintaining the holiday spirit and in acknowledgement of the celebration of Boxing Day for my neighbors up North, I’m offering FREE shipping on my book Ultimate Hockey Training to the U.S. and Canada until the new year.
Yes, that’s the holiday spirit.
I often get questions about speed training for hockey or in-season training. The great thing about Ultimate Hockey Training is that it describes my entire training SYSTEM. In other words, it’s not just a random collection of exercises or vague training guidelines. It provides an incredibly comprehensive look at exercise progressions, year-round training guidelines, and a scientific rationale for each component of the training system. And if you sign up as an “Insider”, you get access to the exact training programs we use with our players each month AND to an exercise database with over 800 exercise videos! Not a bad deal for less than the cost of a few skate sharpenings. You buy the book, and I’ll cover your shipping!
To your success,
