Total Ice Training Centre owners Tyrel and Kayla Lucas offer several ways for clients to achieve their fitness goals.

Achieve your goals at Total Ice Training Centre

Helping you reach your goals is a top priority at Total Ice Training Centre.

Helping you reach your goals is a top priority at Total Ice Training Centre, with a strong focus on safety, professional high standards and excellent customer service. Whether you’re an individual or a team, an athlete or an amateur, Total Ice trainers and coaches are on hand with state-of-the-art equipment to make your dreams a reality.

Owners Kayla and Tyrel Lucas opened the doors at Total Ice in 2012. “The response certainly exceeded our expectations and the community has been very supportive,” Kayla said.

Tyrel, a former pro-hockey player, is a fitness trainer and a strength and conditioning coach and Kayla is a former figure skater studying to be an RN. “Tyrel started out assisting in coaching a local team and training athletes from our home in our garage gym with athletes during the off season,” Kayla said.

In 2014 Total Ice won the Customer Service Award at the Williams Lake Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Awards ceremony, and was nominated for the award again in 2015.

“The motivation behind building Total Ice was addressing a lack of available ice facilities in the community; this allows players to skate and develop their skills during the spring and summer while engaging in other activities,” she said.

The facility includes a two-thirds sized ice rink, a synthetic rink with a skating treadmill, a 3,500 square foot Total Strength and Conditioning (TSC) gym and a spacious area on the upper floor. This space is rented out for events such as birthday and Christmas parties, conventions and regional meetings, including a space for catered meals with kitchen plans in the works.

Kayla said that the Fundamentals Class of Total Strength and Conditioning (TSC) program starts every month, with sessions twice a week for four weeks. “In the fall and winter we have three-on-three leagues for men and women, competitive and non-competitive divisions for men and women and a beginner hockey class for women,” she continued.

Throughout the summer Total Ice holds hockey schools and week-long camps, specialty clinics, and fitness training; they also offer Pro-D Day Camps for kids during the school year.

She said the main reason they built a two-thirds sized rink is for training purposes, adding that it provides a smaller space for increased skill development. “You need to react and make decisions quickly and you handle the puck more often; research has shown that a smaller rink is more beneficial for younger players. Kids are more engaged with the play and have more opportunities to handle the puck,” she added.

“There are fewer breakaways; all kids are more involved.”

The Total Ice synthetic rink also has a skating treadmill where people can work on their skating technique and mechanics to improve their stride.

The Total Strength and Conditioning Program (TSC) at Total Ice is done in a non-conventional space with cardio equipment, rowers, bikes and sleds.

“Most of the equipment in the gym is for developing strength, conditioning and cardiovascular endurance,” she said. “We have Olympic barbells, bumper plates, free weights, kettlebells, squat racks and an open space for multiple uses.”

There is also a large rig used for TRX training.

Kayla said there is always a coach in the classes, providing progressive development for athletes, youth and adults.

“You move through the TSC levels in a controlled, safe environment. This program helps you develop strength and endurance with the main focus on injury prevention. We want people to be carefully monitored so they can continue to do this for a long time,” she noted.

“We also work with people recovering from injuries — people working with occupational and physiotherapy.

“On staff we have physiotherapist Tyler Judd, who is a wealth of knowledge, experience and information.”

She said people also come to develop better cardiovascular endurance to achieve better overall fitness and mobility for their lives.

“Our programs can be tailored to your ability, mobility, strength and your goals. We take the time to know our members’ needs and goals and adapt our programs to accommodate them,” she said.

“When people walk in the door, they’re family.”
