Program options to select from:

8 Week Program:

  • 1x per week: $320
  • 2x per week: $520
  • 3x per week: $750 (*can be made by 2x $375)

12 Week Program:

  • 1x per week: $399
  • 2x per week: $750 (*can be made by 3x $250)
  • 3x per week: $1080 (*can be made by 3x $360)

Programs run on the same day(s) & time each week, based on age group.

What’s the difference between the 2 programs?

The real difference between the 2 programs, is with another 4 week span for the 12 Week Program, there are more progressions in skill development our Skating Instructors can accomplish with you (as compared to the 8 week program).  Moreover, the additional 4 weeks allows for more physiological adaptations, such as greater improvements to strength, power, and single-leg balance.

But we understand a 12 week program might not work for everyone’s schedule.  So the 8 week program might be a nice option for you if have scheduling considerations to accommodate.

Why should players use the Skating Lab?

Skating Treadmills are empirically proven to improve on-ice performance. 

This unique training tool enables our Team to examine your skating mechanics and make appropriate adjustments to your technique, so you learn how to skate like a pro.

This is a total contrast from a traditional team practice with 15+ skaters on the ice, where there can be no focused attention on your skating mechanics, as you reinforce bad technique.

Train with us in the Skating Lab, and you will:

  • Develop more efficient stride mechanics
  • Maximize your stride length
  • Master your edge control
  • Improve your conditioning

Every player has different biomechanics, physiology, and movement patterns.  Our Team of Skating Instructors will identify your areas of improvement, and systematically train your body to develop breakaway speed, so you have the confidence to be a dominant player every shift.

How does the Skating Lab make you a better skater?

1) VIDEO ANALYSIS:

  • This is a critical tool for players, to make the connection between what your Skating Instructor identifies and what you feel with your body.  This enables you to apply micro corrections to your technique right away during your next work-set, so your can learn and practice perfect skating mechanics.

3) FUNCTIONAL MOVEMENT SCREENS

  • Our Skating Instructors are trained practitioners of Functional Movement Screens.  We will identify if you have any dysfunctional movement patterns or imbalances that are hindering your skating technique, and prescribe corrective exercises for you to do as homework.
  • This is essential to improving as a Skater.  Your progress will be hindered if you have dysfunctional movement patterns that are not corrected.
  • The Skating Lab at Altea Active is the total solution to ensure you’re developing properly as an athlete, so you can fulfill your true potential.

4) 40% MORE FRICTION THAN ICE:

  • Our Skating Treadmill provides 40% more friction than ice. This characteristic will challenge your body to adapt, so by the time you return to the rink, skating on ice will be less of an effort for your reconditioned body, and you’ll feel like you’re flying out there.

Who can benefit from the Skating Lab?

All skaters of every ability will benefit from the Skating Lab.  Young and old, from beginners to pros.

Our Skating Instructors will breakdown an objective analysis of your inefficiencies so you can make improvements, and the intelligently designed training programs and the Skating Treadmill itself will induce positive adaptations in your skating performance, regardless of the level you’re currently playing at.
