Member of the Month - February 2017



Aaron came to us with a unique story and very specific goal: to get back to playing hockey after some unwanted time away from his favorite sport.  2 years prior to training with TFL, Aaron was spending the holiday season in a hospital bed after a surgery to remove a tumor from his brain.  This caused a setback in his hockey training, and decrease in his appetite and strength.

From day one, Aaron was one of the most polite and mature 12 year olds our coaching team has worked with.  His perseverance inspires our coaches as well as the other members in Aaron’s group – even “the bald guy that took his bar.”  This young man never misses a session, has drastically improved his strength and coordination, and has begun to work up a healthy appetite again.  We are also thrilled to say Aaron conquered his main goal, and just wrapped up his first full season back on the ice.

Aaron is constantly following our TFL Instagram page and commenting on our coaches’ workouts.  He has told us countless times how much he enjoys being here each week, but what he doesn’t realize is how inspiring he is to our team.  We’re so honored to be a part of his young athletic life.  It’s been a pleasure to watch Aaron get stronger week after week and we look forward to continuing to see him grow.

A special shoutout to Bob Authier - “The bald guy who stole Aaron’s bar.”
