EPS made such a positive impact on my hockey career. Every summer after working out with the EPS team, I would come into the NWHL season prepared and ready to compete at the highest level. Not only did it help with my strength and endurance, but more importantly boosted my confidence.

Paige Harington

The EPS staff continuously pushed me to get to the next level. The trainers are knowledgeable in all aspects of performance, ranging from workouts to nutrition. I trained at EPS throughout my high school, college and pro career

Melissa Piacentini

I have trained at EPS for 8 years and it has been a huge contributor to my success as a Division 1 Collegiate Athlete. The EPS staff, along with my fellow EPS athletes, create an elite training environment that motivates me to be better each day and become a better all-around athlete. The support I have received from EPS helped me reach a new peak performance each season by focusing on becoming not only stronger, but more focused and driven.

Victoria Hanson, Boston Pride

Training at EPS really enhanced my skills on the field. Working with the EPS coaches was educational but also fun at the same time because they taught you while they were working with you. EPS is filled with coaches who grind themselves not just yell and point.

Deatrich Wise, NE Patriots

EPS has been instrumental in my success as a football player from high school through the NFL. The attention to detail in each workout by Brian and his staff is second to none. This gym attracts highly motivated athletes in each group and makes me excited to improve my game every day.

Joe Gaziano, LA Chargers

EPS is one of the greatest places I’ve ever trained. As a professional athlete it had everything you needed in a facility from the weights, to incredible trainers and guidance for recovery and nutrition. However, what I loved most is the competitive atmosphere that pushed everyone to get better daily!

Lofa Tatupu, Seatle Seahawks

Brian McDonough, and the rest of the staff at EPS have played a major role throughout my career. Going into every season I know that I’m going to be in peak physical shape, and that my body will handle the grind of 80 plus games. The program is tailored to each individual’s needs, and is designed to get the most out of each athlete. There is no doubt that EPS is the best in the business, and there is nothing better than training with the best athletes in Boston

Paul Carey, Boston Bruins

I have felt very fortunate to be able to spend my last 12 off seasons training with Brian and his staff at EPS. The amount of effort he demands from his athletes is what makes his program successful. The amount of effort he demands of himself and his staff is what makes the program the best there is. There truly are no off days for Brian.  I’m lucky to call him a friend. He has helped me evolve and adapt each summer to stay fit and compete. He’s helped me reach my goal of playing in the NHL and has kept me there since the very first summer we began training together.

Brian Boyle, Florida Panthers

Training at EPS helped me develop the habits and mindset to become an elite athlete. When I walked into EPS for the first time, I’d never done a formal workout in my life, but Brian and the other coaches gave me the tools to accomplish my dreams of playing D1 college hockey and competing with the National and Olympic teams. I loved my time there because EPS made training fun while being challenged every day

Shelly Picard, Team USA

I’ve always had an enormous amount of respect for Brian, through his time he spent with the Patriots. Not until I spent time training at EPS early every morning did I understand the elite level of knowledge and expertise available at EPS. I can’t thank them enough for accommodating me and working with my personal wants and needs in training...and at times being a meathead. I honestly can’t thank Brian and EPS enough for their time and efforts.
