Just because you’re chasing the dream anymore doesn't mean you can’t train to perform your best.
Hockey’s more fun when you’re in shape – when you can out skate players, play strong on the puck, have gas in the tank all shift long, and feel great the next day.
But getting in hockey shape doesn’t mean you have to train like an NHLer. Now there’s a training system that gives you the exact game plan to feel better, move better, and perform better on the ice.
“I feel like I’m a fat 70 years old man out here playing with some OHL kids, I’m absolutely brutal.”
He was bent over between shifts looking down the bench as if he had just finished a marathon.
“I know you guys didn’t get faster, but it feels like I’m driving a honda civic in a F1 race – I literally can’t do s**t out there.”
The rest of the boys laughed. The league was good this year and had gotten faster, but the reality had sunk in for John that he had lost his game.
The truth is, he had always been a good player. Played some Junior in high school, skated with his college and pro buddies in the summer, and always was a quality men’s league player.
But “adult life” had caught up with him. His job was busy, he dropped from skating 2-3 a week to 1, and when his first kid came, he decided to give up hockey for the year.
That’s when he reached out to us – getting Kyle’s number from his pro buddy and gave him a call.
“I know you work with elite guys, but is there any chance you could throw something together for me? I’ve actually been hitting the gym a couple times a week – but I just feel like it’s done nothing for me. I haven’t gotten TOO fat, but honestly it feels like I’m my dad out there with a bunch of young 20-something ringers. Not to mention my body completely feels like crap. This isn’t fun anymore, I either gotta give it up or fix my body.”
The truth was, we had never worked with a “beer league beauty” before, but the fact a guy had lost his passion for the game and hockey wasn’t fun anymore really hit home.
So, we created a program that would fit his lifestyle.
Just 3 focused workouts per week. Ditching the “bodybuilding” style workouts. Not hitting any personal records, 400lbs deadlifts, or crushing conditioning sessions. Instead focusing integrated full body movements that translate to the ice. Getting in efficient and effective conditioning work. And developing a healthier, more balanced, and mobile body.
We gave him the program and then didn’t hear from him for 6 weeks.
Finally Kyle got a text at midnight one night that read:
“Bud, not gonna lie these workouts are really starting to show. I just finished a game with 3g, and 2 assists. My best men’s league game in probably 10 years. I know I went MIA but I’ve been doing every workout, each week I’ve been feeling better. I've dropped probably 10lbs (which the wife likes) but honestly it’s nothing compared to how I feel on the ice AND how my body feels off the ice.”
We were amped. We had condensed the training system we use with pros into something that could be used by a player just looking to feel, move, and play better.
The next week, Kyle got another text:
“Koko can a couple of the boys wanna buy this program too? We’re all gonna follow it for the next month, they’re noticing the gas and wanna get on it!”
And so, the Weekend Warrior program was created.
It started with 5 of John’s teammates. The next season he had 12 guys asking from around the league, which became 32 by the end of the season. And we continued to refine the program to make it the most efficient and effective program possible for beer league players.
After 2 seasons of refining the program to be as effective & efficient as possible, and now dozens of beer league players raving about their workouts – we decided to launch it to the public.
The only negative comment we received was “who trains for beer league, it’s supposed to be for fun.”
John replied for us – “trust me, hockey is way more fun when you’re in hockey shape and can dominate”.
You want that explosive stride that lets you burn defenders. You want strength and core stability to not get knocked off loose pucks. You want the conditioning levels that let you play more shifts and harder.
You might not be a pro, but you still have hockey ambitions. A lot of beer leaguers continue to get in workouts in the gym, but with old school workouts that don’t leave them looking, feeling, and performing better.

We started getting more young guys in our beer league & I felt like I was starting to slow down and struggle to keep up. I found Relentless honestly it has me feeling playing my game again! After the 1st phase I already noticed extra push in my stride & was getting to loose pucks faster & just felt stronger in my skates. Plus with all the mobility work my body is feeling great!
I took some time off puck when I had my first kid & coming back was ROUGH. I felt slow, my body ached, and it just felt like I was suddenly 10 years older. I started googling what I could be doing to get back in “hockey shape” and found this program. Where were you guys 10 years ago when I was playing in college?! I legitimately feel like I’ve rebuilt my body with this program and feeling faster & smoother on the ice. Can’t say enough good things!
I’ve always been a gym guy, but watching Relentless videos I realized I had never actually trained for hockey beyond my leg days. One week into the Weekend Warrior program I realized why the game has gotten so much faster - hockey players these days are training like beasts! The perfect combo of functional & traditional.. this completely changed my workout style and I feel incredible both on and off ice!

Hey Kyle, I just wanted to say how impressed I am with this program! I’m a Chiropractor and just wanted a change to my workouts and something that would help with hockey.. But the mobility and “prehab” work here is impressive! My body genunely feels better than it has after hockey in years. I’ve stolen a lot of the exercises for my clients.
I know you guys work with a lot of pros.. But as a D league player who didn’t start playing hockey until 32 I gotta say you’ve had a huge impact on how much I’ve been enjoying hockey this year. It feels like I’m finally getting the stride that better players have and playing stronger with the puck. From your favourite D-league player.. I just gotta say
I’m back mf’er!!! I took 2 years off with covid and everything going on and my first skate I felt like I was 85 out there. With all the new young guys in the league it was either get my a** in shape or move down a division. Thankfully found you guys at the right time. These workouts have been deadly and I’m back feelin even better than I was!!
I absolutely love these workouts. I would have literally paid 10x if I knew that I would feel this good on the ice. I’ve found my wheels again, my body feels fresher between shifts, and I don’t feel 100 years old the next day after a game.
You guys are training geniuses. I’ve learned more about training than 3 years with my old personal trainer. Even if I wasn’t playing hockey (which I’m playing MORE and BETTER than ever) I’d want to train like this. My body feels incredible.
15 years since I played college hockey and my first 2 weeks I felt like absolute s**t. My wife said I should see if there’s a hockey workout program that I could find and that’s when I found you guys.. I gotta say I legitimately wish I had you guys when I was still playing. These workouts are killer, I genuinely got my legs back, and feel like a hockey player again.
