GET TO KNOW THE COACH

My name is Henri Filppula, a strength and conditioning specialist, and sports massage therapist. I come from Finland where hockey is more like a religion. Over the past few years, our nation has been successful, by winning several world championships. Finnish born players have increasingly found in every year NHL draft. This shows that we have started to do the right things.


My journey as a coach started more than a decade ago. Over the past years, I have specialized in training hockey athletes from peewee to pro. Every athlete that I work with is a superstar in my books, so I want to give the best service to everyone who decides to join my coaching, no matter what level he/she is playing.

My training philosophy is - "Train smarter, not harder." In other words, do not waste your valuable time doing something that could in the worst-case scenario, lead to injury or lower your performance. That is the biggest reason for me doing this website. You deserve a top-notch program design and periodization that allows you to take the next step in your career. 

My experience as the team's S/C coach extends from a men's professional team in Espoo to coaching juniors in Helsinki. You can check my job history at LinkedIn 

However, what comes to personal training. I have clients from all over the world and from many different levels. For example, I have had the privilege of working with NCAA, USHL, NHL draft picks, NHL, KHL, and Finnish Liiga players, where some of them are U18 and U20 World Champions. 


I hope you decide to join my tribe and experience what modern hockey strength training is at it's best. 
 
If you want to stand out in summer tryouts, prospect camps, or impress your coach to get the opportunity you deserved. Perhaps, you are playing the local beer league and want to get a better shape. Let me help you to shine next season. This site is where every hockey player can find a product that suits them for sure, from individualized programs via an online app to pre-made programs. Make your move.


Let's break the ice together!
