Spotlight Athlete of the Week: Meet Aaron Irving

June 23rd, 2015

This week’s spotlight player is 3rd year Premier Strength athlete Aaron Irving. Aaron combines both speed and strength that makes him a force to be reckoned with both on the ice and in the gym. In 5 weeks of training, he has already shaved 6 hundredths off of his 20m sprint and posted impressive numbers in both his bench and squat maxes. Aaron is dedicated to his training and a very hard worker. He often can be found sneaking in extra sets or heating up his post workout chicken and quinoa meal after training is done.

On the ice, Aaron is a solid two way defensemen who prides himself on his physical play. Aaron was a key part of the Oil Kings successful Ed Chenowyth and Memorial Cup runs in 2013-14 season registering 9 goals and 21 assists in 63 regular season games and dressing for 21 playoff games. Aaron finished the championship season with a +26 and was selected in NHL draft by the Nashville Predators. Aaron’s goal is to play pro next year and with his work ethic Premier Strength is excited to help him work towards his goal.
