Hockey players who practice on ice rinks face obstacles like chilled toes, cold noses, and having to shoot around thirsty whiskey drinkers chiseling for cubes. Skate, shoot and train safely on dry land with today's WagJag: for $99, you get four 1-hour hockey training sessions at Ultimate Stride Skating Studio.
Expert trainers and sophisticated technology go stick-in-hand at Ultimate Stride's ice-free skating facility. Students lace up their skates for hour-long skills sessions, each of which includes a half hour on the skating treadmill and a half hour on the shooting range. Harnessed into the treadmill apparatus, trainees glide in place on a moving track, accumulating valuable sport-specific training. The land-based treadmill allows players to closely examine and correct their stride without the need for costly ice time. Half an hour on Ultimate Stride's shooting range lets athletes hone slapping skills as they send pucks careening towards their targets.
Ultimate Stride's skating and shooting programs use principles of sports science to develop players' abilities. The skating treadmill training uses the science of body movement and mechanics to help children maximize muscle usage during the skate stride, making them more effective skaters. Ultimate Stride ensures each drill is age and skill relevant, so that they are always learning and focused. Ultimate Stride's philosophy is simple: combine specific teaching and instruction with an emphasis on skill development and having fun!101 Railside Rd.Toronto, ONM3A1B2www.ultimatestride.ca
