Skate Faster. Score More. Win the Puck.

Explosive strength, power, and speed is the deciding factor in the game, and if you aspire to become a professional hockey player.

These qualities ensure you have the physical capacity to knock someone off the puck, prevent yourself from getting knocked off the puck, be able to take more powerful strides to get that loose puck, and then hammer it into the goal.

In our Off Ice Dryland Hockey Training program, we use methods that work on these key qualities daily, and the players with these unfair advantages will dominate their opponents every play.

P.K. Subban have been coming to our gym for over 8 years now, and here’s what he has to say:

“LPS Athletic Centre is a big reason why my game is where it’s been for the past couple of years… Back to the short (2012-13 lockout) season when I won the Norris Trophy, I remember how I felt that year and every year since then. It’s probably made the biggest difference in my career.”

– P.K. Subban, Nashville Predators (NHL) (Testimonial Video)

METHODOLOGY & SYSTEM

When you train at LPS Athletic Centre in North York, we use a system called the Athlete Activation System™.  The Athlete Activation System™ is an international certification and educational course that we teach strength coaches on the best methods to train athletes.

This system maximizes and taps into your potential by activating higher threshold motor units.

This system is so powerful that it produces a steroid-like effect.

Clance is one of the best strength coaches in Canada and definitely one of the best that I follow in regards to his training methods…

Josh Fontana TestimonialJosh Fontana, Strength Coach, Pure Strength Academy

…I played a lot of rugby so it’s my transition from an athlete to a coach and this is the best system in the business…

Alex Lauzon, Wrestler & Strength Coach

…of all the training seminars I’ve ever been to, this was certainly the one that earned the highest evaluation standards…

OUR FOUR TRAINING PRINCIPLES

TRAIN HARD

We’re a community of athletes that push each other to be better each and every day. We have fun, but we’re competitive. We cheer for each other and strive to be Monstas™.

TRAIN FREQUENTLY

Commitment will get you started, consistency will help you finish. We set you up with coaching, programming and techniques with long term views for long term successes in and out of sports.

TRAIN HEAVY

Technique & safety is paramount. Once your skill develops over time and you are able to have proper positions, you’ll earn the right to lift heavy. That’s when the magic happens.

TRAIN TO FULL ROM

Training to full range of motion is utmost importance to us. Weightlifting is the ability to display movement, strength and explosiveness in the proper full ranges of motion.

OFF ICE HOCKEY DRYLAND TRAINING

SUPERVISED COACHING

Elite Performance Coaching – With your individualized training program, you will be supervised at all times by a certified coach when you are training at our world-renown gym in North York. We have an extremely high attention model which ensures proper technical execution of each exercise. We create an environment and culture for individuals to develop strong, independent, motivated, confident and giving characteristic traits.

HOCKEY SPEED TRAINING

Speed, speed and more speed – The game of hockey is changing and it’s all about speed right now. But there is a misconception among some players that they don’t have to be STRONG, which is a huge, HUGE mistake. Strength is “the mother of all qualities”. Researched and developed by some of the worlds best sprint coaches, our speed training system is simple: We lift, and then we run. It’s not fancy, but it works.

LPS SMARTTRACK™ APP

Consistent Data Points – Our LPS SmartTrack™ app allows us to record your progress and interact with the community. Life happens, and we know sometimes you may not be able to make it to the gym (vacation, weather, etc.). That’s why the app has your program, video instructions, key pointers, easy to input user interface, and historical data, so you won’t have to let surprises take you away from the progress you are making with your coach.

INJURY & CONCUSSION PREVENTION

Flexibility, Mobility, and Stability – Our program offers a unique and complementary approach to ensure that the players’ bodies are functioning properly and able to attain normal positions as well as physical positions required by the sport. We take great care in developing the tissues of the body to handle the stresses (concussions, etc.) they may encounter on the ice.

NUTRITIONAL & SUPPLEMENT GUIDANCE

The Ethical Performance You Need – We test body compositions and hormonal profile weekly, including the detections of performance enhancement usage. We are strict on using only ethical methods to get you to the physique and strength abilities you need to dominate your position. Based on goals, we will prescribe ideal nutritional and supplement protocols.

WEEKLY PERFORMANCE TESTING

Maximizing Potential – Using our BioSignature Assessment and Advanced Programming, we leverage the app to track and measure your progress every session, year after year. LPS Athletic Centre team analyzes your data and compares it to other top competitive and professional athletes, so we will know where you stand, and how we will maximize your unfair advantage.

I notice huge improvements in every area of strength and … there’s been just huge gains in almost every area of my hockey game.

Mike Webster, Barrie Colts Captain

LPS has an amazing environment, I’ve definitely become stronger on the ice, you know I’m a smaller player so I have to improve my strength and my speed.

Hilary Lloyd Hockey Off Season Dryland Training SuccessHilary Lloyd, Princeton Tigers

His methods proven to make you the best, but the environment and culture is amazing. It’s one big family and we all push and support each other to rise to the top.

This summer is a great summer! I hit some new limits I didn’t think I could hit. I’m feeling much better going into camp. I feel much better on the ice.

A PERSONALIZED APPROACH

Is this group class training?

No. You will have your own personalized program addressing your personal needs. You will be always supervised & working with a LPS certified coach. We create an environment where you will be training with other athletes from the same and various explosive sports. This system we have created has proven to motivate and stimulate competition to elicit higher performance which equates to better results in a shorter period of time.  In essence, your personalized program + LPS supervised coaching + our gym culture will turbo-charge your results.

Will I become a Pro if I train here?

You’ll get better odds. While we have a track record of sending many athletes to the professional leagues or getting a full scholarship, there are more factors than just getting physical dominance. We can promise that you will possess the strength, power, and speed required and/or more than some of the top professional athletes if you follow our system. Being average will take weeks, being good will take months, being great will take years, but being extraordinary will take decade(s).

How long are the training sessions?

Training sessions are between 1-2 hrs depending on which phase of the program you’re in. Our training plans are structured to give you superior results in a short time frame. Over the years, we developed a system that delivers results to drive the magnificent seven (7): Flexibility, Mobility, Stability, Dexterity, Power, Speed, and Strength all in the same session. And this typically takes anywhere from 1-2 hrs based on the athlete’s fitness level and stage in the system. If you are looking for a quick one-hour cardio workout just to fatigued yourself, then we are not for you.

Off-Season vs 90/365 Day Training?

Off-Season training are intensive programs that maximize results in a short time. We understand everyone is different. For example, professional athletes typically have 10-16 weeks before their season begins. A 14 year-old may have 12 weeks (summer) before school starts. On the flip side, a 19 year old may have a full-time job, and can only train 2-4x a week.  A 10 year old may participate in multiple sports and can only commit 1-2 a week.  From experience, we see athletes that combine an off-season intensive then transition to an in-season all-year round coaching gets the best return on investment.

“…The competitive atmosphere; You work out with guys who are as determined as you are, being the best athlete they can be. I tried training one year with my school and I regretted that decision and came back. Hard work becomes easy work on the ice.”

– Mark Friedman, Philadelphia Flyers (NHL) (Testimonial Video)
