"The summer of 2017 was the first time I worked with Kyle. I can't thank him enough. I went back in-season and noticed all of my numbers for combine testing improved drastically. I was sprinting faster, jumping higher, and my conditioning felt amazing! I can't wait to get better this coming off-season."
Los Angeles Kings Prospect, Ontario Reign
“Kyle has been such a HUGE help the past two summers (2017 & 2018). He has helped me prepare to be physically and mentally ready for training camp. He's very good at managing my previous injuries and modifying my training program to allow me to be engaged every session! He has so much care for all the athletes that he works with and I can't recommend him enough. His attention to detail from the moment you begin training - all the way to the end is phenomenal. As an athlete, he is one of the go-to-guys you want to train with every off-season."
"Kyle is the biggest beauty! Every summer I feel strong and explosive going into training camp. His coaching was excellent and helped me excel, especially on Combine-related drills. I can confidently say that I would not be where I am today without the help of Kyle. On a personal level, it was a pleasure to train with Kyle and I always look forward to coming into the gym EVERYDAY.

“Kyle Paraggua is one of the best trainers I have ever worked with through out my career. His attention to detail and planning skills have matched our training program on the ice to help us reach our maximum potential. He has a way of listening to the athletes needs like, motivating them when they don’t feel like pushing, knowing when to back off when the athlete feels a little run down, and truly being a friend. The life of an athlete can be lonely at times so knowing you have a trainer that is on your side and on your team can make a hell of a difference."

This is possible because Kyle cares for us, treats us with respect, and encourages communication so that he knows how he can best help us grow. For his thoughtfulness, commitment, and passion, I am beyond grateful!"

Training with Kyle was purposeful and productive. The workout sequences we were high tempo and exciting. Through my constant progression as an athlete Kyle made sure that injury prevention was incorporated into routines. Through my athletic experience I have found athletic training to be most effective when the focus is on the complete health of the athlete, not just muscle gain. The results from my training sessions were obvious on the ice. My stride and shot developed into more powerful and efficient movements. Kyle was extremely supportive, knowledgeable, and eager to train me, which helped me thrive in the gym and outside the gym, especially on the ice.
