Hello! My name is Abe Edson, I grew up in State College, Pennsylvania where I played multiple sports including Ice Hockey, Baseball, and Lacrosse. My real passion was always ice hockey, as both my older brothers played, it was destined I would as well. I grew a love for the sport both on and off the ice. While playing junior hockey I found my love for the sport switching to how off-ice training could help on ice improvements when injured, I knew this would be my career path. I spent the next 4 years at Penn State University studying the human body and working to become a strength and conditioning coach. Since graduating from Penn State, I have completed my Masters at California University of Pennsylvania in Exercise Science. This path has taken me from Pennsylvania, to California, to Connecticut, back to California, to Texas, and finally to Massachusetts working with the St. Louis Blues farm club the Springfield Thunderbirds.
As a strength coach my philosophy is that there is always something to improve on, and with hard work, consistent effort, and sound scientific principles your athletic ability can continually increase.
During my time in professional hockey, I have had the privilege to work with Stanley Cup Champions, International World Cup Champions, and World Junior Champions. I have learned about their habits and what makes them so successful compared to their peers. I wish to instill these types of habits on all my athletes from a young age to ensure the best chance at success of reaching your goals.
My reason for making programs affordable, easy to use, and educational is because this is something that I never had as a younger athlete. I always had "drive" but never had the resources or knowledge to utilize that drive in a positive manner. Cost friendly online training with video description was not a thing when I was going through my training, and I could not afford a personal trainer for myself. This is my opportunity to support the younger athletes coming up, and give them something that would have benefited myself and many of my teammates growing up.
