What our clients have to say
Working with Natasha has completely changed my off-season training. Before I would be mainly focused on leg and arm strength, but her method of focusing on strengthening the core and and move out from there adds so much more productivity in the training and pushes my body to higher limits.
Before training with Natasha, I would feel like I was missing a key piece to my development in the gym. The different mindset of training my low core and different parts of my body adds such a better type of strength for hockey.
My favourite part of training with Natasha was her focus for making me feel better and stronger after every session. She is a very smart and nice person, making it easy as a new person coming in to working with her.
I chose to work with Natasha because of the small instruction I had while working at the Duckett Performance Centre. She has a great understanding for a hockey player’s strength needs and recovery. I wanted to push myself to a better level and I felt she could do that for me.
HARTFORD WOLF PACK (AHL)
With my experience working with Natasha I noticed huge improvements with my hips and back. Before working with her I consistently struggled with tight hip flexors and lower back stiffness. After doing her exercises on a consistent basis I noticed vast improvements. I added these into my daily warmup/cool down routine and started seeing results right away. The exercises are not high intensity but require a large amount of concentration and focus. I noticed my core activating more which took pressure and stress off my hips and back. My mobility improved and soreness disappeared. It was great to see the improvements over the weeks, and also seeing new connectivity to muscles. Natasha is very good at modifying programs for each individual based on there needs. I would highly recommend her to any athlete, especially hockey players.

Working with Natasha, I learned how to use muscles I didn’t know how to engage before.
Before I started working with Natasha, I suffered low back pain. Natasha taught me some new techniques to help PREVENT my back pain. After working together, I was able to complete a full workout without any pain. As well, I didn’t have any pain the next days.

Pilates sessions with Natasha were high quality for recovery and mobility, especially when we had them mid-week during the Summer training months. The sessions were great for core stability as well as precise muscle activation, which can get skipped in high intensity workouts. I found the foam roller exercises to be particularly helpful for releasing lower back strain and tightness.
Natasha has a great forward thinking outlook on exercises and is always finding new ways to improve body mobility and recovery.

Natasha’s sessions are the perfect blend of core, balance and mobility. I was first introduced to them through the Duckett Performance Centre at the Edge School.
It has been extremely influential for my Summer training, isolating different sets of muscles not normally recognized by hockey players. Not only has it dramatically increased my core strength, but helps minimize the wear and tear on my body throughout the upcoming season.
