"Training at BTN has added a lot of variety into my workouts with different stretching techniques, weight-lifting exercises, footwork, and different cardio options. It’s a great combination of fitness and field hockey and I love going in the off-season and working on different skills, receptions and shots especially getting to do that on astro-turf. It’s a great way to help prepare for both fall and spring, as it keeps my skills sharp and fitness high!”
