What Others are Saying About Youth Conditioning at the NATION

“My hockey team loves working out at fitness NATION! Their conditioning program blends cardio boxing, core stability and movement skills for an outstanding workout. We have tried many different programs at different facilities throughout my years of coaching but this has proved to be the best yet! The team loves coming out to the workouts.” ~ John Ayton, Coach, Mississauga North Stars

I’m immensely pleased with the program that Fitness NATION is conducting for my U/17 girls. We needed a supervised program to increase our core and upper body strength, as well as addressing agility and explosiveness. I’m pleased to have someone training the girls who has an understanding of the game and a tremendous amount of enthusiasm, respect, care and concern for the girls.” ~ Brian Robertson, Coach, Mississauga Falcons

I have seen my son get bigger and stronger but much more that that I have seen his confidence improve dramatically and this is thanks to Roger. His coaches noticed too and he enjoys his sessions so much that he now does twice per week. He not only enjoys training with him but looks up to him and is able to talk about things that are not just about training. Thank you very much for what you have done for our son.” ~Brenda (Mom)

“This is our 3rd year with the NATION and the boys continue to show improvements in strength (core) and conditioning. Last year this showed on the ice as we won our division (out of 18 teams) and went to the City’s. The group training keeps the boys working together as a team which brings up the energy and keeps them accountable. The trainers are focused and highly experienced and the boys are learning that fitness is a lifestyle as well as a great tool for sports. Highly recommend the NATION” ~ Pat Kerr, Mississauga Jets
