San Jose Sharks
“Firstbeat is an integral piece in the effort to better understand our athletes and give them actionable information to improve their performance on the ice. We utilize Firstbeat daily to manage player load, formulate recovery strategies, and give proper nutritional advice for refueling after practice. Firstbeat has greatly improved our processes in providing players and coaches with valuable insights into their capabilities and we are excited to continue learning from the technology.”
Jack Anderson, Assistant Strength & Conditioning Coach, San Jose Sharks

“It is important to develop the players all the way from a young age progressing towards the elite league. We have a S&C team that involves coaches from U18 and U20. We meet on a regular basis, and the Firstbeat data is one key point that we discuss in those meetings, as well as the bigger picture of the strength and conditioning path of the player from youth to adulthood in this club.
Marko Haverinen, Strength and Conditioning Coach at Tappara.

Leksands IF
“We were doing really good stuff before using Firstbeat, but we didn’t really know that for sure. How we prepared for games and how the sessions went on ice or how training sessions went one, two, or three days before a game. Was it too hard or too soft, or for the days after games how was the recovery? How about when we were traveling?… Now we know”
Jesper Gillerås,Strength and Conditioning Coach at Leksands IF.

Minnesota Wild
“Firstbeat helps me to be sure of the decisions or the communication that I’m engaging in, having the data to look at, and you can see a trend over time. When you go into a coach’s office or have a conversation with a player, I’m not bringing my own opinion into it – it’s just presenting the data we have. It’s very objective.”

Matt Harder, Head Strength & Conditioning Coach at Minnesota Wild
