Maria Mountain is the founder of GoalieTrainingPro.com. Her clients include Stanley Cup winners and Olympians. Mountain is introducing a new “post-to-post” speed program for hockey goalies. The program is backed by an online video, which introduces the basic elements of the program. The program focuses on using Lateral Lunges to a Hop, and other exercises, to improve both balance and speed. More here: http://youtu.be/jpqNZ-G8LiE
“I started the “post-to-post” speed program because it is what my clients ask about the most,” said Maria Mountain, MSC and Founder of GoalieTrainingPro.com. “Goalies need to be agile and able to project speed. Many trainers focus on blocking pucks. That is fine but there is more to the game then blocking pucks. Goalies have to be able to move quickly while being super flexible, which is what my video and program teaches.”
Mountain has noted several hockey players occur injuries from lack of specific training.Mountain has noted several hockey players occur injuries from lack of specific training. “Patrick Roy's popularizing of the butterfly led to an epidemic of hip injuries. This wouldn’t have happened if the trainers addressed the impact that move had on the body. Sure, he was blocking pucks but it cost some goalies the longevity of their career,” continued Mountain. “I’m hopeful hockey goalies will watch my YouTube video and then learn more about the program at my website. I’m about preventing injuries while increasing a goalie’s skillset.”
Hockey goalies who are interested in learning more about the “post-to-post” speed program, or any of the services offered by GoalieTrainingPro.com, are free to visit the website and contact Maria Mountain directly.
