I have been lucky enough to work with Next Level at two very different stages of my career. First, as a young teenager trying to take the necessary steps to play college hockey and now, as a professional trying to play in the NHL. Nate and his team have assisted me in making both those dreams become a reality. Their knowledge and passion shows as they are constantly altering their programs to keep up with an ever-changing industry. They have a very unique ability to keep their programs both challenging and fun. Nate and the Next Level coaches will without a doubt help keep you motivated to achieve your personal goals. They are simply the best there is for any age level and I will be continuing to use their services as long as I call Rochester home.
