HIGH PERFORMANCE ATHLETE ANALYSIS
IF YOU AREN't testing, YOU ARE JUST GUESSING
By leveraging world leading human measurement technologies and exercising expertise from several sport science disciplines, the Sport Science team tracks and analyzes each athlete's testing data to provide a performance gap analysis and summary. This information helps athletes and trainers understand the specific deficit areas that we can address in the gym so that we hit ice in the fall with the biggest possible gains in performance and injury resiliency.
Director of Sport Science
Ryan served as the Director of Rehab for the Toronto Maple Leafs from 2015 Until 2019. In that role he helped reshape the Leafs' approach to off-ice training and athlete development. After starting his family, he opted to move back to his hometown where he's always dreamt of recreating the pro sport environment to help drive amateur athlete development.

BSc. Exercise Physiology, MSc. Dietetics
I worked with Ryan for four years with the Toronto Maple Leafs. During that time Ryan was tasked with the role of developing our injury prevention and rehabilitation strategies. His tireless work ethic and methodical approach led to the development of truly world leading protocols. The results of these were directly correlated with the incredible success of the team during his tenure. The team did not suffer a non-contact injury for three and a half seasons demonstrating the efficacy of Ryan’s multi-disciplinary, collaborative approach to athlete monitoring and proactive intervention. When an injury occurred the rehabilitation protocol included an unprecedented level of detail in which every possible physiological system was leveraged to ensure that the environment for healing was optimized in every way. To this end, we did not suffer any set-backs during the rehab process and never experienced a recurrence of an injury. I genuinely cannot speak highly enough of Ryan’s work.
