NRG Fitness

What NRG Fitness Is

NRG Fitness is a diverse fitness center to make you a better hockey player. They work on specific muscles to get you that much better. It works on a skating treadmill, your cardio/running/speed, your muscles/strength, and your skills! It runs out of Winnipeg Manitoba, and is a really good thing to go to if you want to become more developed, and a better hockey player.

Why Im Going To NRG

If you haven't already read my previous blogs, I am a kid that just started hockey last year, and am developing un humanly. I am playing the second highest level (AA) on my second year playing! This year I am going hard this summer with a goal in mind to make the highest level (AAA) I am going hard. I am going to NRG become it works on your speed, skating, skill, and strength. Pretty much everything for only 500 dollars a month. I am going for 2 months this summer. It is 6 times a week. Monday, Wednesday and Friday is all strength and weight workouts. Tuesday, and Thursday is on ice. While Sunday is strait cardio, Saturday of course is the day off.

Skating Tredmill 

The skating treadmill is a treadmill that you skate on. Impossible right? WRONG. It is a Multi-Milliondollar machine consisting of skatable material that runs the way a regular treadmill would. Check the video below to get what I'm talking about.

The Skating Tredmill with help me with my overall skating! From Cross overs, to my stride, all the way to agility, and acceleration. I am looking forward to this!

Cardio - Sundays

Every Sunday is hard intense cardio. We run to a foot ball field, and run and run and run. We'll be working on the ladder for our fast feet, sprints for our overall speed, and cardio just to trim fat, and overall health. Sundays will definitely be one of the harder days.

Weight/Strength Training - Monday Wednesday and Friday

I am already pretty thick, but the weights, and strength excersies they do are not normal. They are so hard! If you don't think you can do something, the trainers make you believe you can, and you can do more than ever expected! They just don't do curls for the girls, they do everything there, and especailly muscles and compound exercises that help you with your hockey directed muscles. Such as squats, and deadlifts!

On Ice Training -  Tuesday Thursday

Last year I heard NRG was a lot of bag skating, and sprint skating. This year they are going for more of a skill approach. There is a lot of skill handling, and shooting drills. I love hitting the ice, and this ice time is helping me develop a lot faster than I would playing street hockey, or just stick handling at home. The on Ice Runs out of Canlan Ice Sports


Final Words

Personally I really suggest for all you players that have an NRG Fitness near you, go to it, work it, and work hard. You get what you put into it. I am still going to workout at home, and work on skills at home. Please don't think I am spoiled because my parents arent spending there money on this. I saved up money on my own. Also, I got where I am right now with just working out at home. So working out at home combined with NRG Fitness, I really hope can make me meet my goal of AAA
