Delivering the Training Hockey Players Need to Take Their Game to the Next Level.
Our Origin Story
Elite hockey players are consistently pursuing better - Relentless Hockey was built with this shared focus.
Created in 2016, by former elite hockey player turned Performance Coach Kyle Kokotailo, Relentless Hockey was built to bridge the gap between Strength & Conditioning and on-ice performance with the training players truly need to enhance their performance.
Started in Burlington, Ontario – Relentless Hockey garnered the attention of elite players for having training that truly translates to on-ice performance. This quickly grew to working with dozens of minor teams & two junior teams in season - along with having a significant group of elite prospects and pros in the off-season.
As players returned to their teams across North America or overseas, they continuously requested programs they could be using on their own to continue their training. Seeing their workouts & results - many of their teammates started reaching out for their own programs.
Sending hundreds of PDFs to players across the world throughout the season, we set out to create a better training tool that would allow players to have videos of exercises, be able to track their workouts, and have more support from our team - this led to the creation of the Relentless Hockey App.
Today we work with hockey players playing in over 10 countries in over 20 different professional and elite league. Along with our Next Level Coaching Program, we developed our team training platform where we work closely with a select number of teams across North America - and continue to create the professional quality programs that players need to take their game to the next level!
Inspired by Exercise Science. Driven by Performance.
Health - We place emphasis on addressing imbalances and movement limitations to
ensure we’re not building fitness on top of dysfunction. Our goal is to create a healthy
athlete and return the body to optimal function and perform better, for longer.
Strength - We believe strength is the foundation of elite athleticism and a prerequisite to
thriving at the professional and elite hockey levels. Strength provides the foundation for our
athletes to build the speed, agility, and power necessary for elite on-ice performance.
Athleticism - Hockey is one of the most athletically demanding sports on the planet. Our
mission is always develop better hockey players, not “weight room all-stars.” Our training is
intentional in enhancing athletic capacity and movement literacy that players can translate
specifically to on-ice athleticism.
Aerobic Conditioning - We place emphasis on creating an elite aerobically
conditioned athlete. We believe that the better-conditioned athlete can perform at a higher
level longer and without breaking down over the course of a game, tournament or season,
and is a cornerstone to on-ice performance.
We want our clients, partners, and community to know exactly what we stand for. These first principles guide our business practices and are what we believe in as a team.
