Jens Kieling

Jens Kieling has had a very athletic background. This enables him to excel in many sports. Though he has enjoyed playing all sports, his true talents and skill were expressed through playing ice hockey up until a junior level. He played competitive ice hockey for over 15 years in North America and in Europe. Playing in two different continents helped him further acquire and develop his technical and physical attributes towards his hockey career.

Having worked six years as a personal, small group, and team trainer, Jens Kieling has been able to formulate, research, and experiment his own program design, quality of exercise implementation and execution. He has also worked with a wide variety of clients from youngsters, professional, adult, to seniors and has a great passion for fitness in each of those areas.

The culmination of all his educational, athletic, cultural, and personal training experiences have evolved into a powerful art. It is the powerful art of getting results out of each and every client. Jens has developed a very professional, sharp and keen eye for quality of body stability and movement.

He is an expert in picking out all the deficiencies related to stability and movement of the human body. It is in recognizing these minute and tiny details that we are able to correct those areas through consistent training programs. By working those deficiencies, you greatly reduce the risk of injury but also significantly improve the quality of movement. Quality of biomechanical movement relates to performance in sport. Poor biomechanical stability/movement equals poor performance in sport. Excellent biomechanical stability/movement equals outstanding performance in sport.

Jon Woodyard

When comparing hockey to the world’s other major sports the most striking and obvious difference is a thin piece of steel that separates a player’s foot from the slippery playing surface. Mastering balance and high speed maneuverability on this steel is the foundation for all aspiring players and a necessity to reach elite levels. As executing quick, powerful, balanced, skating skills progresses and becomes second nature, players will feel more comfortable multi-tasking with the puck and more aware of what’s going on around them on the ice. This allows them to play the game at a higher level and continue to acquire skills on top of their strong skating foundation.
