For many years, early in my career, I had always participated in extensive training with different trainers here and there. I decided to contact Brent McKenzie to inquire about his services for the upcoming off season. After meeting with Brent to discuss my goals and expectations for next season, I decided to take the opportunity to begin training, at which point Brent structured in detail a periodized plan that not only covered one workout, but created a blueprint for the entire off season leading up to training camp. My decision to begin working with Brent, proved to be a smart choice as I have continued to work with him every off season since. The training provided by Brent was truly above and beyond comparable to all others that I had previously participated in. The kind of workout I recieved focused on key areas such as core training, stability and hockey specific exercises. These exercises really challenged me every day and pushed me to work harder than I had before. Going into training camp I felt better that I have ever felt before which is direct result of the training I had received over the summer. Another area, besides my physical workouts that I had to work on was to recover from a groin injury. Brent was able to find various exercises to help me through a successful recovery without re-injury . I truly felt much stronger and was able to skate during the summer months. The nutritional value that was provided was an additional benefit to me in achieving my personal goals. Brent and I would evaluate my eating habits in order o ensure sucess in my training. The knowledge provided in this area was also beneficial as it encouraged a healthy living style and enabled me to increase energy levels for my workouts throughout the day. To date I also receive maintenance programs from Brent to ensure the progress I recieved over the summer months continued through the year. I really enjoy training with Brent, there is not one day that passes where I do not feel I am working to the best of my abilities. Brent's motivation techniques are second to non, and his expectations were made clear from day one. Thank You Brent! You have made a difference in my career to date.
