As a coach, I am looking for the individual qualities of players in order to have a stronger team. It is my job to establish trust and respect within the team. READ MORE

Dan Regala is a native of Detroit, Michigan and has been a Certified Fitness Professional since 1990. Dan has been in Texas since 1976. The key to being a high performance athlete is proper conditioning. Because it is the hockey off season a lot of players make the mistake of NOT continuing their conditioning. If anything, this is the prime opportunity to expand upon the months of playing and conditioning that has already taken place. READ MORE
