In today's high-speed game, the goalies that are rising to the next level are playing more dynamic, explosive, and athletic than ever before.
Goaltending has evolved, it’s time that off-ice training evolves with it. The new era of elite goalies aren’t just technically proficient on the ice, but they’re developing the strength, speed, power, and mobility off the ice.
“They gotta start training like goalies.”
One of the top goalie coaches in Toronto was sitting in our office asking questions about how his goalies could get more powerful in the crease.
He was world renowned for creating very technically strong goalies, but it was a month into the off-season and his elite goalies weren’t seeing the progress he hoped for.
“We’ve cleaned up a lot of inefficiencies, they’ve tightened up a lot of gaps, but they’re still not getting around the crease with the speed & power as they need to. The game’s so fast today, elite goalies need to be faster.”
Goaltending had evolved.
From the days of big goalies, to goalies who relied on raw athleticism, to goalies who had become ultra efficient and positionally sound. But with the explosion of speed and skill in the modern game, goalies weren’t keeping up.
“They just don’t have the power to make their pushes as explosive as they need to be or the speed and athleticism to recover. It’s not on-ice, they have to be developing these traits off ice. I’ve seen a couple of their programs and it’s crap or their trainer just lops them into “hockey workouts” and trains them like players – but even lighter. What if I sent you 5-6 of my goalies for the rest of the summer and they just trained as goalies? Train them for demands of the crease."
He had gotten it exactly right.
The game had gotten faster and while goalies had gotten more technical, they hadn’t developed the off-ice attributes that would let them play more athletic and dynamic.
And while more goalies were taking off-ice training seriously, they were still training for the demands of hockey, not goaltending.
So for the next 12 weeks we radically changed how these goalies trained.
Essentially – we built goalies that would thrive in the crease.
The results showed. Not only did the Goalie Coach keep messaging about how things were now “clicking” and they were starting to move like professional goalies but the goalies all commented about how their body felt better than ever and their movements felt more effortless in the crease.
Then Coach Kyle got the text: “Can you put together something that all my goalies can use? Give them the exact workout playbook they need to be following. We have guys who are all over the place and I want to make sure they're training properly.”
Not only did we create a program that all his goalies would join, but our original goalie crew started having their goalie partners reach out the next summer. Then those goalie’s coaches started to reach out and we were suddenly sending our program to goalies across the world.
We decided this program was too good to save for just pros and our elite goalie connections. We wanted to release it to the public so that goalie’s across the world would have access to the training they needed to thrive – and just like that, the Relentless Goalie program was born.
A few years later, hundreds of Goalies from youth and high school to college and pro to the goalies stopping pucks in the beer leagues have used the Relentless Goalie program to develop a body that thrives in the crease.

My goalie coach is telling all his goalies to get on your program after seeing the results I had this off-season. He says whatever I’m doing in the off-ice is skyrocketing the work we’re doing on ice and I’m feeling it too! Definitely a lot more confident in my movements and feel noticeably stronger and more powerful!
I just want to say thank you for this program. Trainers here do not understand goalies. They make us do the same as players or sometimes even make us do less intense things. Using this program I’ve had more progress than my past 5 off-seasons. It feels like I finally trained to take my game to the next level as a goalie.
I know you get a lot of pro goalies using this.. But as a beer league tendy I gotta say my thanks too! This program has my body feeling WAY better than ever before. My hips/groin feels amazing. Getting around the crease feels more effortless. I’m already repeating phase 1 now!
Hey Kyle, I just wanted to say how much I progressed over this off-season thanks to your goalie program! I took the risk of ditching our team’s summer program because I knew I needed something that would transfer more to my game as a goalie and honestly I swear it was my most productive off-season by far. Even my dad saying that I’m playing sharper and my pushes are more explosive.. I owe it all to the Relentless program!
I just got invited to be a call up for my hometown Junior A team and the coach commented how I look “physically ready for the next level”. I’ve always been the “big goalie” but I feel like I’m finally developing the power with your program to start playing faster and more dynamically. I’ll keep you guys updated this season because you know I’m going to be relentless with this opportunity!
Finally a program for goalies!! I follow your youtube content for a long time and finally decide this is the summer I go beast mode in my training! Your Relentless Goalie program has been huge help in my training. My goalie coach is very impressed the with speed and power I have on ice and so am I! I will dominate this year and owe big thanks to you and relentless!!
