FRISCO, TX--(Marketwired - Sep 1, 2016) - The North American Hockey League (NAHL) today announces its partnership with Trainerize as the Official Personal Training Software Provider for the NAHL, North American Prospects Hockey League and North American 3 Hockey League.

As a result of the partnership, the NAHL's Johnstown Tomahawks coach is utilizing Trainerize with its players to create, track and improve workouts while simultaneously monitoring players' overall progress and health. The personal trianing platform is also integrated with FitBit and MyFitnessPal, allowing coaches full visibility of their players' fitness and nutrition tracking in one platform for the first time.
"This is an exciting partnership for our three leagues because training, development and nutrition for all of our hockey players is a top priority," said Alex Kyrias, Director of Communications and Sales for the NAHL. "The relationship with Trainerize will now allow our teams to keep track of their progress with the latest and most effective technology."

"Using Trainerize with our players has already taken the team to the next level, and this past season we had a team record of 18 players make NCAA commitments," said Mike Letizia, Tomahawks head coach. "Our team training has never been better since we started to use Trainerize and the players love how quickly and easily they can access their workouts through the software and mobile apps. For us as coaches, it also allows us to hold players accountable to keeping up with their fitness, while providing a guideline in which we can show their progress to collegiate and professional programs that ask about a player's off-ice habits."
