“HockeyFIT was a highlight of my Y career. I was proud of not only their individual participation, but also the team dynamic. The way they encouraged each other and built each other up was very inspiring.”
“I found the programme to be of great benefit. The classroom sessions were very informative, and the chance to discuss amongst others was great reinforcement. The fitness sessions were vigorous and challenging, and the coaches were very knowledgeable, supportive and encouraging. Everybody gave it their all. I’ve told a number of guys about the programme and hope they get an opportunity to join in the future. Thank you so much for this wonderful experience. This 61 year old accomplished things I didn’t think possible at my age.”
“I’m on week 17 of my 12 week Hockey FIT programme! Lost 10 pounds so far, eating healthy and enjoying workouts every Tuesday evening at the YMCA. Thanks Hockey FIT!”
“The most satisfying feeling in the world is when you put on your pants and they’re falling down a little bit. I’m sure everybody here feels that by now, I did the same thing, I had to punch another hole in the belt – loved it!”
“All the exercises themselves are not equipment intensive or anything and everybody can walk away on their own and in the privacy of their own home, their back yard, their garage, whatever, they can do the majority of the things we do here [in the Hockey FIT program].”
“When asked about the reasons for joining the program: “I think it’s very structured and it’s geared to a group of guys that are interested in hockey in a certain age category, so there’s a connection and that’s been very helpful.”
“The combination of everything, I wanted to learn, the next week I wanted to see what else. And the competition and everything. Everybody said they just wanted to come back.”
“The shorts I’m wearing today I couldn’t fit into 12 weeks ago.”
“I’m way more active now. I probably went from, I forget the first week they, they did an average step count, I was hovering around 4500, 5000. I have a desk job and now it’s probably 10,000 [steps] or more. I go out for a walk every lunch now; I walk every evening.”
“I think it was, the hockey connection is what got me started, I’m a huge hockey fan, I played a lot of hockey and if, I thought if there’s a way I could combine more hockey…with some exercise to get into better shape, I could play more hockey.”
