SERIOUS HOCKEY. SERIOUS PROGRAM.
2020 is the year we are game-changing the way athletes train and we are inviting you to be among the first to experience it. Get seriously set up for your highest success.
The best athletes look for the best. TWIST has been a household name in the world of cutting-edge hockey conditioning since 1994 for a reason; we are constantly pushing the envelope on sport specific conditioning, athlete development, coaching methods and personal performance.
We have innovated your 2020 program based on interdisciplinary scientific research, technology, the physics of anatomy, sport medicine, mindset psychology, holistic health, performance nutrition, neural training and sensory processing, athlete mentoring and stress management techniques to consistently produce elite athletes at all ages.
Our modernized player development philosophies and holistic “complete player complete person program” are today in demand by sport and health governments around the world, sport agencies and licensed for private business collaborations overseas that prepare athletes for the academic, life and sport excellence needed to achieve collegiate scholarship.
Peter Twist has dedicated the last several years of his sport science career researching all inputs of human performance and exchanging expertise with the top minds in the international sport science community to create a new proprietary, 360 degree sport science based Holistic Sustainable High Performance Hockey Program that will redefine how athletes of all disciplines train.
The summer of 2020 is the year he is ready to unveil it to the public.
Show Up Ready.
You will train like the 2000 professional and Olympic athletes that have graced the elite TWIST roster of high performance conditioning programs before you. Yet better. Welcome to our 2020 Holistic Sustainable High Performance Hockey Program accelerating your development inside and out.
This is not your average hockey camp and you are not an average player.
Leave your ipads, games and phones on the sidelines. We are brought together to learn, grow, train and improve – immersed in making every day count. Better Every Day!
Within a positive respectful enthusiastic culture where genuine friendships with the most motivated are forged, you have the opportunity to truly strive to become your very best in all ways. Your coaches will push you yet the other players even more – it’s the strong pull of the most motivated elevating to great – together.
Train Like a Pro. Be Treated Like a Pro.
We will test the limits of your current physical capabilities and force you to push through any current barriers you may have in your current game and conditioning status.
We will train your mind to handle the demands and pressures that come along with professional level sports using the exact same methods Peter Twist has used to get over 150 aspiring athletes drafted into the NHL.
20,000 athletes have graduated the TWIST program to achieve varsity sport success at the collegiate and highschool levels. 2,000 pro and Olympic athletes have been TWISTed. 4 Major league MVPs in three sports. Many Olympic gold medalists.
The key to success is not reaching your peak – which is a one and done approach – but rather, the highest level you can sustain 365. Top performance + consistency wins. We will make your health a top priority and educate you on how to maintain your new level of athletic performance.
Expect a heavier and more explosive work volume combined with mandatory scheduled restorative to unload from each training demand, maximizing your body’s full capability without surpassing your tissue tolerance or burning out your mental capacity.
TWIST’s Load Management strategies were adopted by the China Olympic program who partnered with TWIST to advantage athletes preparing for the RIO 2016 Summer Olympics and the 2018 Winter Games in South Korea.
You Will Get Bigger. Stronger. Faster. Higher Skilled.
….IF you stay healthy and can output high quality training efforts.
Did you know that Olympic medalists enjoy more restoration time AND net a higher volume of training days than do their competitors they defeated.
Our schedules look different from other hockey camps for a reason – everything we unveil this season are proprietary secrets based on years of science and the intense collaboration with the top minds of the global sport science community. It is the exact same scheduling practice that has been applied in both the NHL and Olympic Games and is favoured by gold medalist and MVP players alike.
You will work more when players elsewhere may not and you will rest when they don’t. Training blocks of higher volume followed by more frequent rest – from that specific demand – allows your body to accrue more growth and improvement that training stimulated.
YOUR 2020 PROGRAM OUTLINE
ON-ICE = ELEVATE TO GREAT
We are increasing ice time by 30% to break through any current conditioning plateaus you have and drill the skills key to stand out. Interestingly, this is combined with more restoration time between on-ice sessions to maximize your growth potential and net much higher quality on-ice execution. Quality wins.
The emphasis will be heavily placed on small space techniques and tactics, skating biomechanics, positional variations, speed, direction change and deceptiveness with intense conditioning.
DRY LAND = BECOME EXPLOSIVE
The time you spend off the ice will be dedicated to developing body mass, being strong on your skates, confident to battle for positioning, protect the puck and deliver punishing checks.
Expect to increase your skating power, increase shot velocity and adopt quick twitch abilities, reacting faster in all situations. We’ll school your speed relentlessly yet with equal attention to deceleration – so you can break away from the pack accelerating – then stop on a dime to change direction immediately. Being fast + evasive = game highlight plays!
NEURAL TESTING + SENSORY PROCESSING = A NEW LEVEL IN YOUR GAME
Imagine if you could attain the competitive edge of slowing the game down and see more ice, increasing your decision making time to make very smart plays.
Competing in sports at a next-level is always more than just speed and strength. 80% of skill
and technical performance is based on your brain + vision sensory systems that allow you to process information faster, receive information sharper, increase your peripheral vision and depth perception and allows you to physically react faster than those around you.
You will be introduced to the high tech neural training methods currently being used by high profile pro athletes across all disciplines that maximize neurocognitive and sensory motor skills. Utilizing a state-of-the-art stroboscopic eyewear and a digital wall which uses a convergence of many analog tools and data quantification analysis during training have shown an increase of 18% in on ice skill performance.
MINDSET MASTERY MENTORING = BE THE STORM
Intense demands. Insurmounting pressure. Unrelenting expectations. Sport Success requires effective mindset strategies for resiliency, confidence, mental toughness and an unwavering can-do attitude.
Life today also adds to sport demands. Social media perfection. Cyber bullying. Every generation faces a new set of challenges and emotional pressures with this generation being no different. Sustaining happiness and positivity is a key attribute of the most successful. We each own that process and players must learn how – its a very powerful tool impacting everything!
We incorporate the top mindset strategies used by the world’s most successful athletes and highest business leaders to ensure intellectual growth and instill a can-do attitude that will not only set them up for success on the ice but continue with them throughout their careers. This isn’t just a one day workshop for our athletes, it’s a complete comprehensive program that is schooled and practiced daily.
LEADERSHIP = GROOMING FOR CAPTAIN
Understanding the role and presence of a Captain’s position is crucial for the success of any championship team. You will be taught the Leader of One mentality, how to show up in ways that influence everyone positively, and learn the expert soft skills to lead by persuasion and social cohesion. This sets you up for success as a game-changing person in all areas of life.
SPORTS MEDICINE = MANAGE THE MACHINE
Expect to learn how the mechanics of your body will be working while it’s under intense progressive overload, the importance of holistic health management and cellular health. We are guided by our VP of Sports Medicine, Dr.Jack Taunton, the founder of sports medicine in Canada, co-founder of the University of BC sports med curriculum and Chief Medical Officer of the 2010 Winter Olympic Games.
MOUNTAIN CONDITIONING = UNLEASHING THE POWER OF PRIMITIVE MAN
Ecotherapy is becoming increasingly popular for athletes not only as a way of adding new stimulus to achieving optimal physical conditioning but as a necessary way of dealing with massive somatic, social, and mental stress.
Today’s world is electric, toxic and in many ways, soft. Expect to have your current conditioning severely challenged while running drills in some of the North Shore’s most recognized trails and mountain scapes and being educated on the importance of supplementing your training in nature.
Look up Cypress Mountain, Grouse Mountain, Seymour Mountain. These are your running track. Your legs and lungs will thank you. Your mind will elevate – in both tenacity and happiness. Top athletes are tough – plus know how to be calm.
The majestic mountains awaiting your life changing experience are equally valuable to restoration. Research evidences that your brain on nature is calmer happier more grounded and your body inside a rainforest enjoys healthful improvements in your biology.
How we train matters – the exercise methods matter – our mindset towards it matters – and – the environment we train within matters. We put every element in your favour to maximally advantage you.
HIGH PERFORMANCE HOLISTIC SPORTS NUTRITION = FUEL YOUR FIRE
Re-fueling your heavily depleted body is more important than how you train on or off the ice. It’s the essential building block required during training that defines how each athlete will perform and will separate the elite athlete from the amateur.
Meal planning and provided organic sports nutrition is available for those athletes who want to maximize their overall performance. There is a lot of fake food temptations and indeed, world wide, our food supply is sick. We used to focus only in teaching sport fueling strategies. Today it is also imperative to understand how our food has been treated, what has been added to it and, to make complex simple – what are our most healthy nutrient dense foods we can make a habit.
