Dryland Training















Dryland Training is off ice skating specific conditioning.


Off Season

Our free spring/summer program encompasses a wide variety of training techniques, including plyometrics, technique drills, running and stretching.


Craig Pielechowski, a four time National Short Track Champion in the 60 to 69 year category, and an International Champion in the 70 to 74 year category, coaches our diverse program on Monday and Thursday nights.


Monday's workouts will primarily focus on skating specific exercises and drills, while Thursday's will be geared towards developing foot speed utilizing a mostly plyometric workout.


While our Dryland training is short track specific, anyone (especially hockey, figure and in-line skaters as well as cyclists) looking to improve their fitness will benefit from our program.


To participate all you need to do is bring running or cross training shoes, something to drink, a towel to wipe away the sweat, and a desire to work hard and have fun.
