There's a new era of hockey player - and they're built different.
There’s a modern game demands players be stronger, faster, more powerful, and more dynamic than ever before.
It's no longer just enough to be working out. Hockey Players need to be training to develop a body that thrives on the ice. They need optimized off-ice training, for maximized on-ice performance.
“I know I can play division 1 hockey.”
We received an email from a player in British Columbia that had just finished a successful junior season with zero division 1 offers.
One of his teammates, who we had worked with last summer, asked if we’d connect with Jake to talk training.
He wasn't a naturally gifted goal scoring type, but he was a great player. He had outworked players to earn a roster spot on a top Junior A team in arguably the best league in Canada.
Once he was there, we continuously earned more and more ice time – finishing his first season on the top 2 lines and with just under a point per game.
This past year was even better. He was named assistant captain, he played on the top line, and put up 72 points in 42 games. He had developed into the player that Coaches love to have on their team – always reliable, consistent production, and high complete level.
And yet despite all of this, he was now going into his third year of junior with no commitment, no d1 offers, and not sure what to do next.
“I just don’t get why I’m not getting serious looks. We had three D1 commits last year on our team and they’re all great players, but I’m right there with them. I just feel like I’m going under the radar here.”
So Coach Kyle connected with a college coach who had seen him play and asked what the deal was.
“Jake’s a solid player. Competitor. High work ethic. Good on both sides of the puck. Puts up points. But honestly.. My notes say that I just didn’t see that d1 “flash” that would make me seriously pursue him. He’s just missing that dynamite in his game that would translate to d1 hockey.”
We shared this feedback with him, and while it obviously stung, it was actually good news – he was a division 1 caliber hockey player if he could develop the physical attributes to start playing faster and more dynamic.
So we offered to create him a program that he could do back in British Columbia that would do just that.
A program that was built specifically for the demands of the modern game, and far different than the classic workouts he had been doing on his own.
We knew that if he was committed to being relentless – that one off-season could completely change his game.
He was all in.
So, we crafted the perfect workout program for hockey players to maximize their off-season:
He committed the process and the results paid off.
“I know we’ve barely gotten into it.. But is it too early to feel the results on the ice?”
He was only 3 weeks into his “reconstruction phase” but was starting to notice results. His body was starting to feel better, he was moving better, and he felt smoother and more fluid on the ice.
Halfway through the summer we got another note: “These workouts are so different than I’ve ever trained.. But I can honestly say I’ve never made this much progress in an off-season. It feels like the first off-season I’ve actually trained as an athlete.”
Finally the season came around, and his work really showed.
He wasn’t just a dependable playmaker, he was dominant. He had 3-4 points in his pre-season games – with his Coach claiming he had been “rebuilt” in the off-season.
In his first 10 games he had put up 24 points. Better yet he had conversations with a dozen D1 coaches who were suddenly interested in learning more about where he wanted to go to school. Even different WHL teams offered to sign him to join their team this season.
“All the scouts or coaches I’ve talked to have commented on my off-season. They said they were aware of who I was last year, but I’ve turned into a legitimate prospect this year. One scout even told my dad I’ll probably have 4-5 legitimate offers by Christmas.”
He continued to show up on the score sheet and catch the attention of scouts.
By committing to transforming his training, he had transformed his game, and ultimately his entire trajectory in hockey.
He had earned a full ride to play division 1 hockey.
The next off-season he was back, this time preparing for his first year of NCAA hockey.His Coach had also sent a handful of players who were spread across the country to work with us.
Same process, similar results.
Each summer there were more and more players from across the world looking for an off-season program. So we finally decided that after working with thousands of players in person and online, that we’d take the exact formula that we knew produced faster, more explosive, and more dominant hockey players and turn it into the ultimate training system.
The Relentless Off-Season Program was born.
Since then, hundreds of players each off season use the Relentless Off-Season program to transform their training, body, and performance.
Success belongs to the players who commit to becoming relentless – and it all starts with the off-season.
The complete game plan to maximize your off-season.
The Relentless Off-Season Program is specifically designed to deliver the exact strength & conditioning that hockey players need to transform their body and prepare for a breakout season.
This proven 5 phase training system has been used by hundreds of players at all levels to develop the physical attributes that truly translate to the field & taking their game to the next level.
At Relentless, we build off-ice workouts for on-ice performance. Delivering the exact Strength & Conditioning hockey players need to start moving, performing, and playing better where it counts. We deliver the training that translates.
Create a mobile body with exercises that address structural imbalances & restrictions so that you feel & move better.

The exact workout structure that elite hockey players are using to build their body.
No more fluff, randomness, or bodybuilding style workouts. This is training 2.0 - with full-body and integrative workouts designed to challenge every facet of your body with each workout including:
Build a bulletproof body.
Each Relentless workout starts with a series of mobility and activation exercises specifically designed to injury-proof the body while addressing the common imbalances and mobility restriction in hockey players’ bodies.
Speed is the variable of success for hockey players.
That’s why each workout has a specific work designed to improve your on-ice speed.
Depending on the day, this is either plyo-based and power-focused exercises designed to generate more power in your stride and develop you into a more explosive skater OR speed focused work designed to develop your foot speed, change of direction, and refine your athleticism.
Hockey demands strength and power.
We don't just lift weights. We develop the functional strength and power that Hockey Players need to thrive in today's game.
We’ve eliminated old-school exercises and “weight room strength” and instead focus on developing the kinetic chains that allow athletes to translate their strength and power more effectively where it counts.
The three areas that hockey players can never get enough of.
Each Relentless workout finishes with extra mobility and either extra core or conditioning.
Extra core consists of exercises that build total core strength allowing hockey players to shoot harder, play stronger, and never get pushed off the push again.
Conditioning isn’t just about getting bagged. We focus on developing the specific energy systems that translate to a hockey shift, period, and game. Earn more ice time by being in elite conditioning.
Relentless Mobility isn’t just about stretching. It’s about intentionally improving range of motion and eliminating movement restrictions and chronic tension from areas that hockey players struggle with so that they can feel, move, and perform better.
Maximizing your training demands strategic structure.

This summer was super productive for me guys. I added some muscle, improved all my lifts/sprints, my body is feeling fantastic, but most importantly I’m feeling fantastic on the ice. This feels like the first year in a while I’m coming back to training camp having truly elevated my game and I owe a lot of thanks to you guys.
I was mid-pack at our pre-summer testing and literally was top 3 for every single test at training camp. All my coaches have commented on having an “extra gear” on the ice too.. I’m more explosive than I’ve ever been and can feel the impact on my game. So fired up heading into this season, thanks fellas!
This summer training with Relentless Hockey was everything I needed in my game. I crushed fitness testing and feel like I finally found that extra jump on the ice. I can’t wait to get into the season and send you guy some real on ice results!
No offense.. I’ve been a fan of you guys but I honestly didn’t think this program would be that impactful on my game. I bought it because I just wanted to have something to follow this summer, but WOW do I feel great. The mobility alone has me feeling 10x better and can’t describe it.. It just feels like each stride has more push and I’m winning more puck races. I think you guys might have undercharged on this for how valuable it's going to be in getting some bonuses this year!
6 weeks in and I can already feel it on the ice.. It feels like I turned up my speed attribute on chell or all the sudden unlocked speed boost. Workouts are sweet. Always a challenge, always something new. But the on-ice results are what matter and I’m feeling it already! Can’t wait for this season.
Hey Coach Kyle, can’t thank you enough for this program and the support this summer! I just made the Midget AAA team (I played AA last year) and the one thing the coach said was he noticed how much my speed had improved over the summer. Can’t thank you guys enough!
