  • I played alongside Thomas on the Ottawa 67’s and back then I could see his passion for training and performance. It’s great to see Thomas passing on his extensive hockey experience and strength and conditioning knowledge to players who want to make it big in hockey. I know that guys who train with Thomas are getting the best of the best and I look forward to seeing his ‘graduates’ on NHL ice soon!

  • Over the years I watched Thomas go from a talented, hardworking hockey player to an expert strength and conditioning trainer and hockey coach. His drive and determination to help athletes achieve their best is second to none. I encourage anyone wanting to be a top athlete to consult with Thomas and the team at TK Sports Performance. You will be glad you did.

  • It’s great to see a young man with a wealth of hockey and training experience — OHL, CIS, Minor Pro – embark on a path to share that knowledge and expertise with young players trying to make their way in the game and be better. Good luck, Thomas, with TK Sports Performance Training.

  • I’ve known Thomas since high school and knew right away that he was different. He is a matthoffmantalented and driven individual whose main goal is to help you achieve heights that you previously may not have known were possible. Prior to starting with Thomas I was searching for the love and passion for golf that I once had. After a year and a half of searching I realized that what I was doing wasn’t working and I needed a change. Little did I know I was looking in the wrong spot. Thomas told me to give him 2 weeks. I am now hooked and through hard work, I have developed a new confidence and enjoyment for the game of golf. The physical benefits are second to none but it’s the mental edge and determination his workouts give you that are unique. Every workout presents new challenges and I look forward to seeing how high we can go. It doesn’t matter the sport. Thomas will cater to your needs and get you in the best shape possible so you can perform optimally on a daily basis.

  • Tk Sports Performance Training is like no other, through a variety of different workout routines geared towards hockey players it has helped improve my game in all different aspects such and speed and strength, ultimately helping me become the athlete I am today!

  • TK Sports has helped me exceed in many ways! The mix of upper body, lower body, and cardio workouts has helped me strengthen my game in all areas. I feel stronger than ever on the ice, and my cardio and quickness is better than ever thanks to TK!
  • Attending TK Sports Performance was the turning point in my hockey career. I went from being an average AA hockey player to being a AAA player in only a few months because of the work TK put in for me and the work I put in for myself. TK broke down the essential movements of hockey off ice better than any other trainer I had ever worked with, and I believe that without his training I would have never made the jump to AAA. The difference between TK and any other trainer is that TK truly cares about each and every one of his students and he wants to see them all succeed through his rigorous training. TK Sports Performance is not only a gym; it is a learning environment that has not only taught me hockey, but life lessons as well. There is no substitute to TK Sports Performance, Period.
