Perfect Your Performance: Fitness Testing and Evaluations
September 27 - September 28
Register today for semi-private appointments for physical fitness evaluations designed to test mobility, strength, agility, and conditioning! These evaluations will be held at the Club from Friday, September 27th, until Saturday, September 28th, with current strength and conditioning coach, and Club coach, Ariel Fay-Gagnon!
Athletic fitness testing is a great method in evaluating an athlete’s current level of health and fitness. It allows for proper monitoring of their abilities; specifically: strength, power, agility, mobility, flexibility, and cardiovascular capacities. These test results help determine appropriate goals and address any deficiencies or limitations an athlete might have to improve competition preparations as well as preventing future injuries. Evaluations will be scheduled individually from online registration.
Schedule: Evaluations will take approximately 30 minutes.
- Friday, September 27th: 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm
- Saturday, September 28th: 7:00 am – 10:00 am

Ariel holds a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology degree from the University of Quebec in Montreal and is equally passionate about the importance of off-ice strength and conditioning as an integral part of training for a successful competitive career.
