Hockey Fitness Training Programs

As Pittsburgh's foremost hockey fitness training coaches, we have helped more hockey players develop (off-ice athletic development fundamentals) over the past 15 years than anyone else. Our client list includes NHL players, Olympians, NCAA Division 1 Teams and individuals, junior hockey teams and individuals, high school programs, and a large number of other youth teams and individuals. Check out our testimonials, our expanding client list, or contact us to see why so many ice hockey players have chosen us and have succeeded.

As with any athlete, each hockey player (and Goalie) begins with a comprehensive evaluation and movement assessment. Based on the results of the evaluation and assessment, sport specific neuro-kinetic and phsyiological needs analysis, and specific goal setting, each ice hockey player will receive a customized training plan to improve movement, power, strength, stamina, balance, coordination, and reduce injury risk. Find out what a customized hockey fitness program can do for you.



Lacrosse Fitness Training Programs

As the strength and conditioning coaches for Pittsburgh's only Men's and Women's NCAA Division 1 Lacrosse Teams, we have first-hand experience designing effective team and individualized training plans for improving speed, power, and performance and reducing injury rates and keeping players on the field. We have a proven track record of producing better conditioned players who are better able to focus and play to their highest ability during the entire game.

Using the Finish First Sports Performance training system with one of our certified coaches will help any lacrosse player play their best when it matters most. Contact us to schedule your initial fitness and performance evaluation or to see how one of our custom lacross fitness training plans could help you or your team.



Golf Fitness Training Programs

Using the TPI (Titleist Performance Institute) specific Golf Fitness Movement Screens, implemented by our TPI certififed professionals, each golfer will receive instant feedback about physical limitations and how they affect the golf swing effeciency and how they could be increasing the golfer's risk of injury. The golfer will receive a customized training plan to improve movement, power, strength, stamina, balance, coordination, and reduce injury risk. Our TPI cerfified professionals work closely with our golf fitness/elite performance team to produce the best results for your golf game, and your fitness. Find out what a customized golf fitness program can do for you.


Additional Sports Performance Enhancement Services

All of our sports performance training services begin with a comprehensive evaluation (scroll down below on this page and click on 'Physical Fitness Evaluations and Movement Assessments for more details), goal setting, and dietary analysis. Once this is completed, a customized training plan is created to address your specific goals and needs. We offer flexible training sessions package options as well as unlimited monthly training options. Click the link above for more details about how it all works. To schedule an evaluation, Contact Us.


Adult Fitness Training Plans and Packages

Then we create a customized training plan for you to follow and coach you to get the most out of each workout. Commit. Get results. We offer flexible training sessions packages as well as unlimited monthly training memberships.


Online Training Plans and Packages

Can't make it to our gym? That's ok. If you are still looking for a customized training plan, we can do it. We will send you an evaluation form and nutrition form to complete and return.

Perfect 10 Pageant Girl Fitness Preparation Training

We have been helping pageant girls (and women) in a variety of pageant systems, as well as fitness and bikini professionals. We offer custom training plans and nutriitonal planning to help you look your best at competition time.


Bridal Fitness: Look GREAT (Naked!) on your Wedding Night

Take a look at what we can do for you...look and feel your best on your big day! Get a customized training plan. Train with us or we can send you the plan and show you what you need to do to look your best.


Personalized Group Fitness Training/Custom Boot Camps

Using the same science backed and evidence based programming that we use for our pageant competitors and athletes, we create unique training programs for monthly boot camps, and semi-private, personalized group fitness training classes.


Physical Fitness Evals and Movement Assessments

The baseline physical fitness evaluation and movement assessment allows us to take a much closer look at specific movements to determine if a client has any postural/kinetic dysfunction or imbalances. This gives us an idea of additional work that may need to be done to reduce the client's risk of injury, and to help restore normal function and movement efficiency. Additional physical fitness tests address areas such as power, speed, strength, flexibility, specific joint mobility, general fitness levels, and much more.


Educational Clinics, Workshops, and Seminars

Attend one of our educational clinics, workshops, or seminars to learn from our panel of experienced coaches. Learn about such things as dynamic vision training, the keys to athletic development (what they are and how to train them), weight loss, weight gain, sports nutrition, recovery and regeneration strategies, improving movement, addressing kinetic chain dysfunction, the role of posture in performance, and many more. Any of our coaches are also available to speak and present on specific topics at your event, or to your team or organization.


Fitness and Sports Nutrition Consulting Services

Staying within the scope of our legal practice, we will provide advice to help you. If it is beyond or outside our scope of practice, we have an in-house licensed clinical and sports dietitian that can work with you.


Performance Psychology and Mental Training Services

Let our partner Sports Psychologist or one of our success coaches get your mental state properly aligned and prepared to tackle the challenges and emotions of performing your best. In a slump, not performing your best? You just might need a mental coach to get you back on the right track. The higher your level of competition, the greater the role of having the right mindset and the right mental preparation.


Team Building Workshops, Training, and Programs

Our coaching staff has been helping to build teams, build leaders and better teammates for over 15 years. We can come to you and address your team, and perform a series of team building activities and tasks, or you can bring your team to us and we can execute a plan at our training facility. We address mental toughness, character, teamwork, teammate (what it means), focus, discipline, attention to detail (all the small things), vision, values, leadership, and many other qualities needed to be successful as a team.


Dynamic (Sports) Vision Training

This is an emerging field that has proven to be beneficial to performance. Good news is that we have been doing it for almost 15 years now using our unique techniques and exercises for specific areas of sports vision and for specific sports.

CLIENT TESTIMONIALS
Matt Bartkowski with the Bruins "As you progress in hockey and aspire to get to higher levels, your off season training becomes increasingly important. Once I started training at Finish First I noticed a difference in my strength, speed, and power on and off the ice. There is no better place for a hockey player to train than Finish First. Where I am now in my career I can credit to Finish First, and I know continuing my training there will get me where I want to be."
--Matt Bartkowski, NHL Vancouver Canucks
Christian Hanson "Coach Jeremy Hoy and Finish First is one of if not the main reason I am where I am today. If it were not for his sport-specific training programs, I could only have dreamt of making it this far. Any athlete who has any aspirations of making it to the next level is foolish to not train with Finish First. Regardless of your current skill, going anywhere else to train is a waste of time, money and talent."
--Christian Hanson, NHL Forward (Retired)
Matt Bartkowski with the Bruins "I've been forutnate enough to train with Jeremy and Finish First for almost 20 years. His training system specifically addressed my needs as a developing youth hockey player and changed to specifically address my needs as I matured as a player throughout juniors, college, and the pros. Using the Finish First Sports Performance training programs, I was able to play at my strongest, fastest, and in the best shape possible, while staying healthy for a long productive career. I can't recommend this training enough. If you do it, and commit to getting better, you will get better--guaranteed!"

Jeremy saw an inner-strength and confidence in me even when I struggled to see it in myself. ..."
--Miss Pennsylvania America 2009, Shannon Doyle
Chris Kushneriuk, Professional Hockey Player for the Bakersfield Condors "Prior to training with Jeremy Hoy and the team at Finish First, one of the biggest knocks I received from coaches was my endurance. I would slowly wear down as the season went on, which would make me lose a step in a game where every inch is so important. Since I began my off-season training with Jeremy's programs in the summer of 09' this has no longer been an issue. ...Jeremy has made me a much more explosive and confident power forward. ..."
--Chris Kushneriuk, Professional Hockey Player (Retired)
