When building a house you start with the foundation.

When building a hockey player, it is no different. A solid foundation starts with off-ice training. Teaching athletic posture, specific movement patterns, understanding how to transfer your weight, control of your stabilizer muscles are all used to create speed, strength, power, agility, mobility, and balance. This is essential to making a better overall athlete and an elite hockey player.

Off-ice training is not a sprint.

Results do not just happen over-night. It takes time, understanding and a long term commitment to improving every single day. Off-ice training can take an average hockey player and give them the potential to become a great hockey player. The best way to look at off-ice training is that every time you train you are adding fuel to your fire and at the right moment you simply have to light the match.

  • I’m very happy with Endurance and coach Matt Abbot. A thorough combine and body measurement testings’ were performed before and after the off-season to motivate and track progress. The off-season program prepared by Matt had a positive impact on the players and helped the team have a good start to the season. We trained on a weekly basis at Endurance and I can’t say enough about the quality of the workouts. Matt has the special ability to create demanding workouts to see results while keeping the atmosphere fun for the guys. I would welcome the opportunity to work with Matt anytime.
