Summer training at Coach Boyle's facility has been undeniably one of 
the biggest contributors to my success as a hockey player. After my 
first summer of training with MBSC in 2008, I went on to receive 
All-American Honors in my subsequent season as a sophomore at Princeton 
University. After my second summer, just recently in 2011, I earned a 
spot on the USA Hockey Women's National Team for an IIHF tournament in 
Finland. The results speak for themselves, and I couldn't be more 
excited to continue my training with MBSC this upcoming season.

"Training at Mike Boyle Strength & Conditioning has been an awesome experience so far!  It's great to know I'm working with a team who really cares for their athletes and wants them to peform well. Not only do I know I'm getting stronger, but its very helpful that the trainers continually stress good posture and form which is key to injury prevention. 
I chose Mike Boyle Strength & Conditioning because they have experience wih a variety of professional athletes. As a professional golfer, I went in with very specific goals; injury prevention and increaseing strength & power and I'm very confident I'm well on my way. 
I always feel like I get 100% when I work out at MBSC. Thanks guys!"

"Training with Mike Boyle took me to the next level, literally. Mike's outstanding training and nutrition regiment put me in the best shape of my life. I increased my strength, speed, and weight, while dropping body fat. 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 Mike and his staff. On a personal level, it was a pleasure to train with Mike."

"Training with Mike Boyle Strength & Conditioning gave me the numbers and athletic skills needed to compete at the NFL level. After training with Mike, I dropped from 5.4% to 4.3% body fat while gaining 9 pounds of muscle. I dropped my 40-time from the mid-to-high 4.5's to the high 4.4's. The level of personal attention and technical knowledge far exceeded my expectations. I got the best nutrition and everyday health advice I had ever received. Mike and his staff are both wonderful and supportive. Without them, I would never have realized a childhood dream nor have been given the opportunity every boy who picks up a football dreams of."

"I wanted to let you know how appreciative I am of all your help. You have no idea how thankful I am, I am extremely lucky that you were willing to help me. I could not have made it this far already without you. When Gary Geissler said that you are the best - I think that was an understatement!"

"I consider myself very fortunate to have been able to train with Mike Boyle for over 20 years and throughout every phase of my NHL career. MBSC programs have the ability to educate young athletes, discover peak efficiency for pro athletes in their prime years, as well as, continue to extend an older athletes' career and establish a healthy lifestyle; which I believe are true testaments to Mike's expertise in the field of strength and conditioning

I found one of Mike Boyle's greatest attributes as a strength coach was to discover innovative ways to challenge athletes while bringing them to elite levels of fitness and dialing them in to their specific needs.

Training at MBSC emphasizes Core Principles' that apply to all sports and every member of the staff is committed to making you more efficient in your training."

Chris Nowinski

"Working with Mike Boyle and his staff changed the course of my career. The enormous strength, speed, and agility improvements I made in just one summer set me up for a successful senior year in the Harvard football program. Amazingly, it also set me up for a career as a pro wrestler in the WWE. I developed the explosiveness to do moonsaults, the strength to suplex anyone, and the agility to come off the top rope, and learned enough about nutrition and training to keep me wrestling night after night healthy and shirtless."

Through its efforts, SLI aims to maximize the safety and vitality of all athletes who participate in contact and collision sports around the globe.

"I have seen for myself how the MBSC system has been a major factor in the development of female rugby players. By implementing the MBSC principles of power, lateral and linear speed, strenght, and conditioning, a previously skilled but injury prone athlete was able to develop into the NATIONAL PLAYER OF THE YEAR and make the ALL-WORLD CUP TEAM (Ellie Karvoski). I highly recommend training at MBSC to Maximize your devlopment as a rugby player".

"I was fortunate to attend a camp/match with the US Development National team. It was a great experience to attend such a formal event and wear a US jersey.

I wanted to thank you all for your assistance in being able to achieve this and even have the opportunity. I have seen great improvements over the year of training at Boyles. I am even more excited for my teammates that have been recently training at your facility. There have already been great results and they all rave about the training. Sha (Blaney) has now entered the US pool, which I think is a large part having to do with you all and the motivation and training you have given us. In addition, I have no doubt that other players (like Rookie) will have the same results and will enter the US pool in the next year due to the training she has been doing through your program. Just through the summer session, players are already seeing great results and feel stronger and are showing changes in their physique.

I hope you know that we all appreciate you and your hard work!"

I would like to note the fine work that Mike Boyle has performed with our clients over many years. Although Mike obviously has a fine reputation in the hockey community and has the utmost integrity, one cannot appreciate the depth of his commitment to his clients unless it is seen first hand. Mike has made each of his clients stronger, both physically and mentally; and most importantly, has enabled each player to achieve his maximum potential. I would certainly endorse Mike Boyle to any player who is interested in achieving the highest level of performance. Mark J Witkin GLOBAL HOCKEY CONSULTANTS
