“Training with Tags has gone a long way to help my game. During my time with the Storm, Tags and I got to know each other very well and he is the kind of guy who would do anything for a teammate, which made it easy for me to trust him with my offseason training. He put together an incredible plan that fit my exact needs of getting quicker and more explosive while still increasing overall strength. He’s been a huge part of some individual accolades I have received and I’m sure anyone willing to put the work in with him will see similar results. The Grande Prairie area was always lacking a hockey specific facility and he is one of the best coaches I have worked with in my life. The facility he works with allows him to not only get clients stronger and faster, but they can also work on hockey specific skills with off ice shooting and stick handling. Tags and his staff have been around the game of hockey for a long time and are top notch people and coaches. I would highly recommend any up and coming hockey players look into training with him!”

"I have spent the past two off-seasons training at TAGS Athletic Gym and both years I have seen significant improvements in my strength, endurance, and speed. I came to camp each year feeling confident, knowing I had that physical advantage over the other girls. The way things are ran at the gym are very professional, but also easy-going and fun. When I first started working out with Tags I wasn't very comfortable in the gym or with working out. He made the learning process simple and enjoyable. He is always willing to take the time to teach you properly, and is able to break down exercises and movements into simpler explanations or parts in order to better understand them. The atmosphere at the gym is like no other gym I have been to. Tags, as well as all the other athletes, make everyone feel welcome. There is the perfect amount of fun and goofiness while still working our butts off and getting better. You really do become a part of a family there and every day I looked forward to my workouts. I would highly recommend training at TAGS Athletic Gym to any athlete who wants to take their game to the next level... and you will have the time of your life while you are doing it!"

"As a female athlete competing in one of the best league's for women's hockey, the right off-season training is essential for on-ice success. I have trained at TAGS when I was back home and have also gotten him to send me programs when I stayed in Calgary for the summer. Both years I returned to camp with personal bests, which allowed me to place top three on my team in fitness testing. The training I have done with Tag's has directly translated with my continual improvement on the ice and has helped me become a much better athlete in general."
-Rachel Paul, University of Calgary Dinos (USports)
“To say the past 4 years of training with Tags has been beneficial would be an understatement. Everyday you are at the gym he’s pushing you to be the best version of yourself and really concentrating on working on and talking to you about your strengths and weaknesses as an athlete. Its awesome to see how far the gym has come since the two squat racks and a couple dumbbells in his garage. Jordan is constantly learning new things and improving himself and the gym to give his athletes the best possible experience. I am very proud to be a member of TAGS Athletic Gym and to have connected with him over the past few years and become best friends.”

“Tags and I have worked with each other the past few summers and I’ve become the best player I can be with his help. His knowledge for the game of hockey as well as strength & conditioning is the best young athletes can get in the Peace region. These young athletes are lucky to have Tags as their coach and mentor. He creates an environment which is competitive but also fun, which is important for kids to remember. Tags has helped me become a better player and I owe him a lot for everything he has done for me. Join the program, put the work in and you will see the results!”
