The Minnesota Wind Chill are pleased to announce that the team will be working with The Power House MN as their official strength training partner for the 2019 season.
With a combination of The Power House’s effectiveness as both an adult and team performance and training facility, and the Wind Chill’s desire to be in top shape heading into the 2019 season, the partnership was a natural one.
“We're excited about the [Wind Chill’s] commitment to their own development as well as our shared vision for all ages and levels of play to have access to high-level skill and performance development. Wind Chill training sessions are blowing the top off the gym right now and we're excited for an incredible March,” said Scott Tuohy, who is the general manager for The Power House.
The Wind Chill will be blowing the top off the gym, primarily with the help of Nick Simonelli. Simonelli has been an active member of the local ultimate community for years playing for national-level teams like the University of Minnesota Grey Duck, Chicago Machine, and Minneapolis Sub Zero (who he is a current captain for). Simonelli is even a Wind Chill alumni himself.
Having played and trained in the elite ultimate scene, his understanding of the nuances of the game have helped him do incredible work in the strengthening, conditioning, and injury prevention of ultimate players for years.
“There’s no one in the ultimate community more motivating, encouraging, or knowledgeable in regards to training and fitness than Nick. Following three years of constant back problems and the inability to train my body the way I needed to, Nick has truly helped reshape the trajectory of my ultimate career and has allowed me to reach heights that I really didn’t think I could reach,” Wind Chill center handler Josh Klane said.
This sentiment was echoed by many other players as well.
Offensive cutter Bryan Vohnoutka added that he enjoys working out with [Simonelli] and at The Power House because he knows he will get hyper-individualized attention, with workouts that are customized for ultimate-specific movements.
Together, the Wind Chill and the Power House hope to promote an active and healthy lifestyle to the Twin Cities community through the promotion of sport, training, and fitness.
The Power House offers individual training sessions at their Saint Louis Park location for $300 for four sessions, or $780 for 12 sessions. You can also call to inquire about team and small group training. To learn more, visit tphmn.com.
