“Having played with the L.A. Kings of the National Hockey League for 6 seasons, I had the opportunity to work with many world-class strength and conditioning coaches.

His knowledge of strength training, cardiovascular training and nutrition principles helped me achieve fitness goals that I never thought were possible. My only regret is that I wish I could have met him about 6 years earlier when I was just starting my NHL career!”
