JASON M., Executive Director and Head Coach - Barrie Trojan Swim Club
"Things this year have been great - kids loved the sessions at your new team training facility. Once again, Greg was excellent. He really has a way of connecting with young athletes and keeping them engaged in the training process. The sessions were challenging but fun and the kids always left smiling. 
The concussion session was informative and highlighted some important symptoms to look for as well as outlining the proper return to play policies once concussion symptoms have been diagnosed. Great takeaways for kids just getting used to contact hockey (and their parents). Thanks again for another great semester,
Brent "

BRENT C., JOA Hockey Canada Skills Academy
"The Barrie Colts M.Atom AA team want to thank you for your help and dedication during the season and playoffs this year. The core exercises that were introduced at this age bracket has helped endurance, speed, agility, and power levels across the board. The introduction of the core muscles is extremely important at this age and need to be developed and understood by each player. I know our team benefited from the program and better prepared us physically to compete this hockey season, but your personalized training routine has also boosted confidence. Looking forward to working with you again."

Dr. MIKE KORKOLA, Orthopaedic Surgeon
"Since starting the Barrie Colts and Mariposa School of Skating with Mind to Muscle, overuse injuries have significantly been reduced. Elite and recreational athletes need to train in an environment that addresses performance and prevention; keeping them out of the rehabilitation room."

Dr. STUART MURDOCH M.D. CCFP. Medical Director Barrie Colts and Mariposa School of Skating
"I just wanted to let you know that our combine session for our Minor Peewee team last Saturday was very well received by both the players and the parents. Your dynamic trainers pushed the boys to excell. Their knowledge, energy and dedication impressed everyone involved with our team.The session did exactly what I was hoping: 1) plant a seed about the importance of off season training, 2) create some competition within the team, having players push each other, 3) bring the group together as they began to form that vital team bond necessary for success."

MIKE PLESH Barrie Coltís AAA Coach
"Mind to Muscle and itís Staff are an extremely professional organization who very competently and efficiently completed Pre and Post Fitness Testing with my Bantam AAA hockey team. The boys were completely engaged throughout the whole process and were educated, as well, as to the purpose of each test. The Staff were very knowledgeable about the testing and itís implications for a hockey athlete. They are very dynamic and are completely connected with current research and literature of all aspects of sports physiology. I would highly recommend them for any sports organization who is seeking any aspect of testing and training."

NORM MCCAULEY Head Coach Barrie Coltís Bantam AAA
"I have been involved in Barrie Minor Hockey and the Barrie AAA Zone Hockey Associations for the past 9 years. During this time, we have utilized the resources at both Mind To Muscle and Sports Medicine on a number of occasions both for training and care during an injury. The Staff at Mind to Muscle are second to none. The training and assistance provided to our athletes and in many cases our children, assists them to perform at their highest individual levels. Our team has trained at Mind to Muscle for the past several years and the feedback is measurable. Not only from the work done by the staff, but it is measurable by their ability on the ice which can be contributed to the training at Mind to Muscle. To Rick and all of the staff, thank you for your continued support and we look forward to working with you throughout our season."
