About Us

The Skating Lab provides athletes with the training required to develop conditioning and skills to meet and conquer the demands of ice hockey.

Our story

Dr. Lockwood has spent the last 15 years researching best practices in athlete’s development and specifically treadmill training. This research has provided the foundation upon which The Skating Lab was developed and currently operates. The original Skating Lab (2001-present) was established at Brock University to host ongoing research that continues to validate and develop methodologies in treadmill training. Research outcomes allow us to continue to offer unique and sport-specific testing and training opportunities for developing through to elite level athletes in all Skating Lab locations.

The Skating Lab Inc. Burlington opened its doors in February 2008. Wave Hockey welcomes the addition of another partnership to better serve the needs of their hockey clientele and enrich the multi faceted training facility at Wave Twin Rinks.

The Skating Lab is an unparalleled leader in the delivery of programs, services and expertise in treadmill training in North America. The success of our athletes reflects our ability to bridge the gap between scientific research and best practices in training.
