WHY SERIOUS ATHLETES TRAIN WITH US
RELATIONSHIPS & TRUST
We prioritize building a rapport with each athlete and give them our full attention and effort, unlike many "programs" that rank the energy they put into someone based on where they play. It is important for us to understand who each person is, what they want to achieve and how we can get the most out of them. A big reason our athletes do so well, is because they trust us and believe in the process.
This program is for hockey players, not those that play hockey... let that one sink in. It is challenging and requires a great deal of commitment and focus. We want to work with the athletes that are serious and willing to do what is required of them to improve. Our common goal is to be the fiercest, most dominate competitor on that ice surface so the expectation at any session is the athlete train with purpose and intent.
The Hockey Off-Season is not the "jack of all trades trainer" holding the key to success. Our team of professionals have worked closely together over the years using our skills, knowledge and practical experience to build a comprehensive system that delivers results. Combined, our team of Strength, Speed and Skills Coaches, Sports Therapists and Nutritionists have helped thousands of elite level athletes maximize a full spectrum of performance.
There are no shortcuts and we believe each person should strive to achieve their best athletically, academically and as members of society. It is as much our goal to nurture good habits and integrity as it is to help build hockey players. Pure Strength is a positive environment where athletes are able to grow confidence and build character by utilizing the people and resources around them. We operate as a family and treat each other with respect and equality, learning and growing to become the best version version of ourselves possible.

Each year since, I improve my performance significantly and have full trust in the Pure Strength Team to help me get ready for the season. I am really thankful for everything they have done for me."

Athletes are also able to sync compatible technology such as the Apple Watch and track their nutrition.
The off-season is a 12-16 week period,
typically Mid-May to Mid/End-August. Tournaments, Showcases, Try-Outs & Camp Report Dates are all factored into consideration when designing each athletes program.
After the initial assessment process, each athlete is issued a monthly training calendar specifying their session times, details and locations. Each training session typically lasts 60-90 minutes in duration.

Josh and his staff at PSA were a huge part of preparing me for my current hockey season. My speed, agility, and conditioning vastly improved over the course of the summer because of his unique training methods. Josh always had a positive attitude and I really felt I got the most out of each phase of the program because of his one-on-one attention. He was hands on and always challenged me to push myself to achieve more. The max lifts I achieved by the end of the summer were some of my personal bests. I did not only become stronger, but my overall lifting techniques became better as Josh identified and encouraged me to work on areas where I needed improvement.

"Pure Strength Academy is professional. I have only been with Josh for a year, but noticed my development skyrocket the first summer spent with him. I got stronger, quicker, more mobile, more explosive and faster with him. These elements are what gave me an edge in the OHL and helped me take my game to new heights.
Not only was the summer hard work, but I had fun too with a great group of guys. Josh will push you to be the best player and person you can be everyday. I can't wait to spend more years training with him and his program."
