Working with Jorge last summer was a really worthwhile experience. Every time I stepped foot in his gym, Jorge always put me through hard workouts. More importantly he showed me how to be efficient in my work. Learning to control my breathing and introducing me to the component of relaxation during highly intense workouts was something I hadn't touched on anywhere else and I found it really improved my overall performance.
I've worked with Jorge for almost 3 years and I've benefitted from his expertise in combining the mind, breath, and body as a whole. His awareness of the connection between all three made it easy for me to learn quickly and effectively, enhancing my overall training as a hockey player.
I have always enjoyed the benefits of strength and endurance training off ice. Working with Jorge Blanco for the past few years has added another dimension to my off-ice training. I find his workouts exciting, challenging and beneficial. It is easy to realize his vast experience and understanding of elite-level fighting sport.
Jorge is an excellent instructor. His ability to teach a striker to fight long & with fluidity is rare. Creativity with power is what I picked up from him. Looking forward to getting more time with him!
After 12 years in the sport and a few world titles I've worked with several coaches but Jorge is without a doubt a game changer, his different approaches to my game have helped me big time. I continue working with Jorge every time he is available and I totally recommend working with him.
Training with Jorge is beneficial to me as a hockey player because of three simple aspects: Relaxation, Speed, Agility. The combination of the three meet all of the needs to help me get better on the ice, and provides me with a unique workout that improves my footwork and reaction time. I plan on keep training with him for a long time.
Working with Jorge has given me the opportunity to try new and useful aspects of training. It has brought my conditioning to a new level, and I've enjoyed learning from his knowledge and experience. He makes things fun, he's a great communicator and most importantly he takes a lot of pride in detail and making sure I leave the gym with a great workout. Every summer, as I train for my hockey season I will for sure work with Jorge.
I have had the pleasure of working with Jorge for two years. In glad I have had that privilege. I use to think I was strong fast quick and powerful. Jorge quickly addressed many deficiencies that were keeping me from reaching my potential. With just a few training sessions I could already see a difference in my power and quickness. I've always tried to 'muscle' my way through workouts. Jorge taught me how to relax.
I am very thankful I’ve been able to work with Jorge. He’s been an incredible asset to help me reach my highest potential. His attention to detail and work ethic are very rare to find. One of the things that I loved about working with Jorge (beside his technical knowledge) is that he’s very passionate about his work. He’s always willing to go the extra mile to get me where I need to be to perform at my best.
I have trained with Jorge as a coach, and he's on another level. I am talking about teaching you movement, teaching you angles and he has such an eye for detail but more importantly when he teaches these things he's teaching them to the point of why we should do A B and C. He breaks down why, so you really need to think about it. A lot of coaches coach so you don't really understand what you are doing and then one day you are like; "Oooh! I should do it because of that."
