We were invited for an exclusive training session with Coach Matt Nichol who is also Founder of BioSteel early in October. I must say that were were all a bit nervous because most of us are not in great shape! We couldn’t refuse however. Matt was training NHL athletes like Connor McDavid, Michael Del Zotto and Tyler Seguin in August during the BioSteel #CAMP.

Locker Room

We walked into the locker room to find personalized lockers for each of us complete with Under Armour workout gear. From running shoes to sports bra and sweatshirt.  That helped us get into work out mood! So we all got dressed into our amazing gear and then headed to the gym.


BioSteel Centre

The event was hosted a at the BioSteel Centre, a basketball practice facility and home to the Toronto Raptors.
