Here What Some of Our Hockey Training Clients have To Say

Austin Levi, Hockey Player“The first summer I signed up with MECA, I came with a goal of gaining 20 lbs of muscle. I achieved this goal in 8 weeks. They are an elite training center and continue to get better every day. MECA’s relentless pursuit of knowledge drives them, and they know how to reach the goals you have for your body. They will make you quicker, stronger, healthier, and more powerful. For as long as I’m playing hockey, I will turn to Dave and the team at MECA for my training.”

– Austin Levi, Charlotte Checkers Defenseman

Jaycob Megna“Training with Coach Lawrence over the summer enabled me to go from 175 to 213 pounds in 14 weeks. Over that period of time, my vertical jump improved 2 inches and I was able to accelerate much faster than before. I feel I have taken my game to the next level.”

– Jaycob Megna, Nebraska-Omaha, Defenseman and NHL prospect

– Brendan Rons, Hockey Player

Jack Kopacka“Training with David at MECA was the best decision I made for my hockey career. I started training at MECA in 2016 and since then I’ve become faster, stronger, and more explosive. The one on one training I do with David is unmatched and I would not be in the position I am today without his expertise. Training with David at MECA has given me the physical advantage I need against my opponents.”
