''Relentless Hockey has been super helpful me in preparing for my ice hockey season this year. Being from the UK it's hard to get a Strength Coach that really understands the needs of an ice hockey player.
The knowledge of health and fitness of Kyle, along with his understanding of ice hockey and the specific needs of what ice hockey players need to get in shape are second to none. Thanks!”

Working with Kyle was an absolute pleasure. Every day he shows up not only prepared with the physical workout organized, but he also brings in the mental aspect that all top athletes need to train as well.
He successfully combines the needs of each individual athlete and what they seek to improve on into one big-picture program. In my intense 4-week program to gear up for the Swedish National Olympic Selection Camp, I saw major improvements in my own stability, strength and conditioning. Showing up to camp, I was prepared mentally and physically, being in top shape for on and off ice testing, practices and games.
Kyle has a certain level of integrity attached to his business, and you can see it shine through his work with his athletes. He is personable, attentive and very knowledgeable on optimizing a workout for hockey specific goals.
I would absolutely recommend Relentless Hockey to anybody looking to take their game to the next level, as they helped me to do.

“I trained with Kyle when he was still a playing and saw the intensity and focus he brought to his own training. Over the years, I’ve watched him continuously build his knowledge of physical fitness and transition from being an elite player to an elite Strength Coach and the guy to go to for all my training questions. I know he’s been through the process himself and knows what I need to keep my body performing at the top level for another pro season. Whether it’s a Junior getting on one of his programs or a young player getting to work with him in person – I think he’s the guy players should turn to truly learn what it takes to be an elite player.”

“As a Division 1 Ice Hockey Player at Northeastern University, and part of the Canadian U18 program, Team Ontario and Junior hockey organizations growing up, I understand the importance of physical and mental training. At the highest levels, you are exposed to elite training. However, a top-notch fitness program is worthless without a trainer that can incorporate mindful eating, sleeping habits, and workouts that will ultimately optimize performance. Kyle has been a fitness professional for countless years now, and his training regiment, being an athlete himself, is an all-encompassing routine that allows for the perfect mind-body balance. With his expertise in nutrition, mindfulness, meditation and of course, physical training, he has created truly elite programs that has proven to be highly successful. He has gained the upmost respect from fellow athletes, trainers and professionals in the field of sports performance. His approach to performance is rooted in his own experiences with high-level sports and his passion for growth and sustainability within the industry is admirable. I am and I am incredibly confident in his ability to coach, train and mentor young athletes and would recommend his approach to sports performance to professionals and youth in the game.”

“I've trained with Kyle for over 2 years. He is an excellent trainer who understands how to safely and effectively develop athletes as he helps them reach their full potential. As a high level athlete himself, Kyle has the knowledge and skills to assist and strengthen those wishing to excel in their sport. He has helped me and my teammates in many areas including strength, agility, flexibility and endurance. Relentless Hockey pushes you safely to your limits so that you can perform at your best. I have full confidence in Kyle and am grateful for all the work we've done together!”

Coaches & Instructors
I have known Kyle Kokotailo for over a year, both as a friend and a fellow staff member of my junior hockey team.
Kyle has been involved with hockey for a number of years at both the developmental and elite levels. Kyle has an excellent repertoire of technical skills combined with a supportive personality that brings out the best in his clients. As an added bonus, Kyle maintains open and communicative relationships with his teams and athletes, which promotes good communication and transparency leading to a highly successful off-ice season.
I recommend Kyle without hesitation.
Head Coach, Burlington Jr Barracudas (PWHL)
“Kyle is the Strength Coach for our Midget AAA boys and is a fantastic addition to our coaching staff. He brings an intense understanding of how off-ice training translates to on-ice performance and what Midget age players need to develop to prepare them for Junior hockey.”
Head Coach, Burlington Eagles Midget AAA
“People don't realize how unique hockey really is and what it takes to truly be an elite player. Ordinary training doesn't cut it for aspiring hockey players. Kyle gets it. He understands the dynamics of hockey and what it will truly take to get to the next level. His skill for coaching fosters positive work ethic and his programming create the results necessary to be an elite player.”
Head Instructor (Burlington Pond) and Former Major Junior/CIS Player
“Kyle is a great help to our Midget AA girls team. We have him out to run practices once a month or so. He can focus on power skating and/or any specific element of the game that we ask him to, either strategic team play or individual skills. Kyle relates very well to the players and they respond to him by working hard. Off ice we have used Kyle to run our dryland strength and conditioning program in the off season. I’d highly recommend Kyle to any team!”
