Skeptical of training programs?
Like you think that training is not going to make you better?
A secret most coaches don’t want you to know…
Almost anything works to some extent and for at least a little while.
That’s right, even doing a crappy training program can be better than doing nothing at all (unless it is just THAT crappy that it is dangerous) for a limited period of time – – and then things will likely go downhill pretty quickly.
I was skeptical too!
For some reason when he said he had been “skeptical” it brought to mind my resistance to flossing my teeth. Something that would have a direct impact on my health and that I had been taught to do by professionals.
It was so simple, was it my skepticism that kept me from doing it? No it wasn’t.
Was I just being lazy? I was tempted to think so, but that wasn’t it either.
I just had a case of first-step-itis. That’s right, the condition whereby one fails to take the first action step that sets them on a path to success.
Thankfully there is a cure and that cure is action. Once I took that first step, I was buoyed on to take the next step and now I am a regular flosser (much to my Dentist’s pleasure).
So if you have been skeptical of training programs (or flossing) in the past, you might actually be suffering from first-step-itis and here is YOUR cure.

That will point (push) you in the right direction.
If you are already sold on the importance of off-ice training and prepared to train for 1-2 hours 5-6 days per week from June 1 – October 1 (yep – right into the start of the season), but don’t have the budget for my $3000 per year SOLD OUT Turning Pro coaching program then you should read this.
I am opening up a new Next Level Transformation group that will start training June 1st. It is a small group coaching program (that’s how we keep the price down) that is hosted via a private group on Facebook. You must have access to Facebook and a well equipped gym to participate.
This group is only for those of you looking to step up a level this season, it is not for recreational players. I will only accept about 4 skaters and goalies (I modify the programs for each).
Here’s what you need to do….
If you are interested, please email me directly (maria[at]revolutionconditioning.com) and tell me a bit about yourself, why you think you would really benefit from this type of coaching. I don’t need your life story, just trying to get an idea of where you are coming from.
If I think you are the right fit, I will send you all the details you need, a link to the official application and we can go from there – how does that sound?
Only apply if you are really serious about it, unfortunately I don’t have time to read emails from tire kickers and in case you are wondering what the price is, it’s $697 for all four months or $215 per month for four months.
PS – the new location of Revolution Conditioning is coming along great – doors open this week and I cannot wait! Here’s what it looks like now…
