There are a couple of things I like about LPS. First off the atmosphere is unreal. Training next to some of the top... athletes in Ontario creates an addicting energy while training; like there's no way you're going to be lazy when there are Olympians, pro footballers, and top track stars snatching 300lbs next to you. You immediately rise to their level.Secondly, the gym culture. There's a standard of excellence that sets the tone. It's very clear the intention: you want to be the best you gotta train like the best. The staff is amazing. As high as the standard is, everyone is so kind and helpful and all anyone wants for you is to succeed and it's very clear in the way they coach and treat you.The biggest difference from other gyms is LPS’s scientific knowledge for developing athletes.So many other gyms do not know how to properly build their athletes without injuring them. I’ve found other gyms focus more on gimmicks, and they lack the principles behind true athletic development such as making athletes do single-legged exercises on a balance ball with a kettle ball which is huge for injury. The majority of gyms lack the foundation and understanding behind true athletic development.LPS is the gym I constantly compare others to. And none have lived up to my standard of LPS. I know if want to be a top athlete, LPS is the only choice.read more

I am a professional volleyball player and LPS has been my favourite off season in my 13 years of training for this... sport. I spent my first summer at LPS these past few months, and I reached a new level of strength, flexibility and mental toughness I’ve never tapped into before stepping into this gym. The coaches are the most knowledgeable, supportive and caring group of people and really want you to succeed as an athlete. If you train here and put in the work required you WILL see some crazy results I can guarantee.read more

I was so happy to find LPS after having ACL reconstruction last year. I was recovering well but not seeing the results... I needed. After reaching out their response was quick, professional, and optimistic. I started my program with LPS in February and did a full month and a half before the Covid lockdown. In that short span of time I saw more results in my leg strength than I had seen in the prior 2 months of my recovery where I had focused on solely regaining muscle. Beyond the physical improvements the team at LPS helped me regain my mental strength and confidence. Being injured as an athlete is very difficult but the community they have built at LPS is truly empowering and I cannot thank them enough for getting me through such a tough time.read more

This is the best Strength & Conditioning Facility in Toronto. If you want to optimize your athletic performance, make... it to a pro level at sports, or simply improve physical quality of your life... - LPS is the place to go to. The coaches here are knowledgeable and highly experienced in their respective fields. The training is definitely hard, but it certainly makes one a better athlete. The atmosphere is intense because everyone strives to better themselves. Most importantly LPS is a community. There is a strong sense of support and encouragement among the people here. I would highly recommend working with LPS, because it will make you better.read more

Great facility, the coaches are professional, knowledgeable, with patience but loving toughness. In only two months my... strength has increased a lot and the way I move on the field has improved a ton thanks to the Athlete Activation System (AAS) program and given me the confidence that I’ll be able to dominate in the next level. In addition, the energy at LPS is upbeat, inviting and positive. Of course, I think Coach Laylor is the best trainer out there but all of the coaches are amazing and will help you reach your goals.read more

LPS is amazing!. Professional, attentive and the gym environment is incredibly supportive and friendly. I'm a little... north of middle aged, very stiff with poor flexibility.The range of motion I have now compared to when I began is unbelievable. I can't say enough about how much they're helping me. LPS isn't just for high performing athletes, they're great for the average person looking for a better quality of life.read more

LPS is a place where anyone thinking of reaching the next level should be. I trained many different ways to get... stronger and be more focused on reaching higher goals with performance and I have not found anything better than here. Coaches here are always helpful and caring of their athletes and trainees. Coaches and athletes here care about what I think matters the most, effort and hard work. This is no comparison to any other commercial gyms. They have the right environment and coaches who are very dedicated to developing athletes. Even if you’re someone just wanting to get in shape, if your focus is there this is the right place for you.read more

When I first heard about LPS I was skeptical – I’ve never done any weight training, gaining all my exercise by playing... multiple sports: Golf, tennis, hockey, basketball and cross country skiing. But I’m 55 now, and I could tell my body was starting to break down. I had pain in my knees, and would wake up aching. So much so that descending a stair case could be difficult at times. I wondered to myself if this is just how it is when you get older. It turns out I was dead wrong! I’ve been going to LPS since February, and I’ve never felt better. Clance and his team provide the right level of motivation without making you feel pressured, and if you put in the time you get the results: No more aches and pains, stairs are a breeze. I’m stronger, have much better flexibility and it’s paying off in every sport I play. Longer off the tee, more agile on the tennis courts, better endurance in hockey. I would highly recommend LPS to anyone who is wants to keep the edge on your fellow competitors.read more

LPS 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.

Been training at LPS for 6+ years to maximize my potential for playing professional football. This is the strongest I’ve ever been. When I deliver a blow, I can see that I’m always the winning outcome. Everybody wants to be a monsta, until they see what real monstas do.

I’ve tried out a few gyms, but nothing really worked for me. My coach found LPS, and now that I’ve been here for over 3 years now, the difference is just unreal…

LPS is amazing – I’ve been training there for just over a year now and am in the best shape of my life. I blew my knee out (i.e. torn MLC) back in high school playing competitive basketball and have been stuck wearing a brace ever since. It wasn’t until after training at LPS, that I’ve been stronger and leaner than I’ve ever been … AND for the first time in over 10 years, I’ve been able to play without any sleeve or brace on my knee. Many thanks to the elite coaches at LPS!

Since joining LPS I’ve become stronger, more focused, and more committed to work hard and win.

I have been training at LPS, and I felt great during that time. Trainers were amazing, energetic, and patient with my progress. I was able to see an improvement in my posture and stamina quite soon, which is great.

To say that working with Clance is one of the best investments I’ve made is an understatement. This investment goes beyond the workout; it is an investment in myself that I know will pay off for years to come. It is my promise to my 65-year-old self that when we do meet, I will be as absolutely fabulous as the woman in that picture who so clearly reminded me what it was I was working toward.

…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.

READY TO BE SO GOOD, THEY CAN’T IGNORE YOU?

Been training at LPS since I was in grade 10… if you ain’t putting in the work when no ones watching, you won’t be able to shine when people are watching… My goal is to be one of the best in the major leagues.

Gareth Morgan avatarGareth Morgan, Seattle Mariners

Just to give you an idea of how great LPS is and what it can do for your career/sport… I’m from Florida but a travel to another country just to be able to work with Clance so if you’re lucky enough to have him in your area and you are serious about being the best athlete you can be then please take advantage of this opportunity. Not only are 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.

Training here since September and can thank LPS for getting me in the best shape possible for wrestling nationals. I couldn’t have won without them! Definitely recommend.

Been training here at LPS and in the first month I lost 10lbs body fat, alongside getting stronger more powerful and explosive… People think they know… but they don’t know… if you are a pro athlete or regular fitness enthusiast you need to get your behind over to LPS asap! They know what they are doing and their staff and environment are great. They embodied everything that has to do with professionalism, passion, and connection to their clients. They really care about the results and you’ll get the results you are looking for and MUCH MORE!
