Hi my name is Tyler Anderson. I am currently playing division 1 hockey at Lake Superior State University. We compete in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association (WCHA). I started working out with Jeff’s guidance at Sweaty Training and Conditioning when I finished bantam hockey after playing for the southwest jets bantam AA team. I then went on to play for the Eastman selects city midget, as well as the provincial travel team, both with Jeff as our trainer. After midget hockey I started my junior career in Kindersley, Saskatchewan, playing for the “Iron Horse” Kindersley Klippers in the SJHL. After my rookie season I got traded to the West Kelowna Warriors of the BCHL, which can only be described as a dream season. That season we won the Fred Page cup (BCHL), the Western Canada cup (Westerns), as well as the RBC cup (Canadian Championship). The beginning of the next season I was traded up to Prince George in the BCHL, and played for the Spruce Kings where it was by far my best season as an individual, where I lead all defenseman in goals scored, as well as top 5 in points by d-man. I was able to earn a commitment to LSSU and achieve my dream of playing division 1 hockey. I just started my junior season at LSSU and I have nothing but good things to say about all the places I played hockey, as well as being a client at Sweaty Training and Conditioning. I have always gone back to Jeff every summer to be able to work on what I needed to accomplish and grow as a player and an individual. He always was understanding with what I wanted to work on, and always had a rock solid foundation, and program that helped me achieve my goals. I would not be where I am today, without Jeff’s leadership and friendship. I highly encourage people that want to work to achieve their goals, and to pursue their dreams, to go see Jeff and let Sweaty Training and Conditioning, push you and help you become the player, and person, you want to be.

  • Committed to CIS University of Manitoba Bisons women’s hockey program
  • 2016/2017 MFMHL Top Defenceman

I’ve been playing hockey ever since I was young and always knew I wanted to play at a high level. As I grew older I realized one of my goals was to play university hockey. Throughout my teenage years, the game started to get more competitive and I knew that I needed to do something to improve my game to help me reach my goal of playing on a university hockey team. That’s when I turned to Jeff and have been working with him ever since. With Jeff’s knowledge and expertise, he was able to provide me with excellent programs throughout the summers I spent training with him. He was willing to do everything in his power to help me achieve my goals. He made me stronger and faster off the ice which ultimately made me a better hockey player on the ice. Jeff always creates a great environment every time I step into the gym and is driven to make players better. He has helped me flourish as a player and have the ability to compete at a high level. I can proudly say Jeff was a large part in my success of becoming a university athlete!
