At Keller Fitness we are committed to giving our clients the best possible service. We are passionate about training and are always striving to be better. Whether it is a weekend excursion to Toronto for weightlifting advice, a 5 day course in Rhode Island on nutrition or doing a 3 month long work internship in Connecticut with hockey guru Ben Prentiss (Prentiss Hockey Performance), we are willing to put in the extra effort!

Phase 1: General Preparation - Focus on strengthening weak muscles, increasing range of motion/mobility and injury prevention. 
Phase 2: Intensification - Focus on nervous system adaptions, lower reps, increased rest periods.
Phase 3: Accumulation - Focus on muscular adaptions, higher reps, shorter rest periods. 
Phase 4: Transformation - Focus on expressing strength, increasing power, final preparation for season. 
Phase 5: Maintenance - Focus on maintaining strength and muscle mass throughout season. 

*Phases will be set-up differently based on lifting experience, age and overall goals for each client. For example, plyometrics can be a great addition to resistance training, but not during a client's growth spurt. Furthermore, energy system training will also be incorporated into each phase, based on applied strongman training, which has the most relevance to the conditioning demands of hockey.  

At Keller Fitness progression is the key to developing our athletes. In order to prevent injuries and maximize gains, athletes must first work on their weaknesses and flexibility, before graduating to complex lifts. We call this first phase General Preparation and it involves the concept of structural balance. For example, exercises like split squats are used during this phase to develop flexibility in the ankles and hips, while strengthening key muscles like the Vastus Medialis, adductors and hamstrings group. It is crucial to follow a logical progression- you need to be able to split squat before you can front squat, you need to be able to front squat before you can clean, you need to be strong before you can develop power! We have the education and experience to provide the proper progression for our athletes to maximize their offseason results and help them reach their goals.
