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.

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.

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
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.
