    Athlete Testimonnials

    I had the opportunity and benefit to train with Ilan for a few summers during my playing career. I found incredible results and growth in my physical performance from the weight training sessions to SAQ and sprint workouts that He put me through.

    Ilan’s ability to change up and create new individualized daily workouts along with his energy and enthusiasm made coming to the gym fun.

    I would recommend Ilan to anyone from professional athlete to weekend warrior or anyone looking to get a good sweat.

    Thanks Ilan for all the training before the bubble. I had a great experience working with you and your team before the bubble playoffs in 2020. I got stronger and felt great on the ice during the playoffs. Thanks again bro.

    I began training at The Yard during the off-season with Ilan, Nick and Matt. They created a great personal development program specifically to improve my power and speed.

    After a couple of weeks of training I felt huge differences on the pitch. There is a great atmosphere in the gym and each and every training is as enjoyable as it is beneficial to performance.

    Would highly recommend any athlete looking to take the next step to come visit The Yard!

    I have worked with Ilan for over 9 years, both as a business partner and as an athlete. Ilan has done an outstanding job developing his training knowledge and building comprehensive programs to work with a range of athletes, from young amateurs to NHL professionals. His off-season programs are very detailed and are broken down into four major phases, each of which are of equal importance. He can adapt any of his programs to each athlete’s age, development level, and injury history. For the professional athletes, he builds a strong base of strength and functional movement first and then adds a strength and power phase. These elements allow them to build their athletic ability and also to handle the intense demands of their season.

    Ilan has built a state of the art facility for Yard Athletics. Athletes have access to the best equipment available today and are surrounded by a passionate and knowledgeable staff of trainers. Yard has an energy level that is unmatched in Vancouver and I would recommend it to any current athlete.

    The experience was refreshing, the exercises were functional and the program was suited to what we needed. The atmosphere was cool because people were there to work.  Everyone was very welcoming and introduced themselves right away. Definitely, a place I wanna be back at.
