MK Thunder link up with DW Fitness First as Official Health & Fitness Partner

MK Thunder are proud to welcome DW Fitness First Milton Keynes as MKT’s Official Health & Fitness Partner for the 2018-19 NIHL South 1 season.

The partnership will see Thunder players use DW’s state-of-the art facilities in Bletchley to prepare for the upcoming season and to enhance recovery while maintaining peak fitness levels throughout the fixtures calendar.

“We are thrilled to welcome DW Fitness First MK to the Thunder family,” said Thunder spokesman Tom Hurley. “Ice hockey is a physically demanding sport that requires players to be strong, fast, and resilient over the course of a long season.

“DW’s facilities and wonderful fitness professionals are going to play a key role in ensuring our players are able to reach their potential on the ice as we look to build on an exciting 2017-18 season.”

Thunder’s roster will keep in close contact with DW’s sports and nutrition experts throughout the season along with being put through their paces in weekly off-ice circuit training to go along with the team’s weekly on-ice practices.

DW Fitness First MK’s Sales Manager Chris Collins is excited to partner up with Thunder and he and his staff are looking forward to supporting the team on game nights at Planet Ice MK once the season begins in September.

“DW Fitness First Milton Keynes are really proud and excited to be confirmed as the official health & fitness partner of MK Thunder for the 2018-2019 season,” Collins said. “We can’t wait to work with the team and look forward to seeing the players around the club.”
