New Skating Treadmill at the MAC
Some of the features of training at The Ryerson Skate Training Centre powered by the BLADE Skating Treadmill are:
What is the BLADE Skating Treadmill?
The BLADE Skating Treadmill is a treadmill body that has installed synthetic ice on a rotating slat belt instead of a running surface, allowing for a smooth and easy transition that feels exactly like gliding on ice. The athlete wears a lightweight harness that attaches to the frame surrounding the treadmill surface, allowing the skater to exit on and off the treadmill easily and safely.
What are the benefits of using the BLADE Skating Treadmill?
Why train on a skating treadmill over regular ice?
Ice time, especially in Toronto, is relatively expensive, and often, hard to find. The Ryerson Skate Training Centre powered by the BLADE is hockey training for any level of skater/hockey player. Any athlete that is looking to improve their stride or make it more effective, along with improving endurance and overall hockey skills, the Ryerson Skate Training Centre allows for a controlled atmosphere where trainers and coaches can easily communicate with skaters. This allows them to provide that necessary instruction, evaluation and feedback - via verbal feedback from instructors, to video analysis; at the Ryerson Skate Training Centre, your athlete will get results.
Who can use the Blade at Ryerson?
Anyone can. From youth to adults, beginners to professional athletes, The Ryerson Skate Training Centre powered by the BLADE caters their programs to fit the needs of any athlete. We also offer team programs, small group training, as well as individual training sessions with 1-4 people who share similar goals.
