Here is what is being said:
If you’re low on energy, seek out Roxanne; she’ll get you back on track. I’ve never met a person with so much passion and drive to help others. She’s scored a Hat Trick with her “Puck Stops Here” nutritional book. Hockey is getting to be so competitive and skilled. Players need to realize that what they are putting into their bodies is equally important as the physical training they are doing. Thanks Roxanne for laying it out in such an easily digestible book form!! ~ Lance Pitlick, former NHLer
As a youth hockey coach, I find that the majority of young elite athletes do not know how to fuel their bodies properly. And much of that begins with the need to educate their parents. Roxanne’s book provides the core principles of sports nutrition. It also provides numerous examples and suggestions for others to follow. This is a great read for aspiring young athletes and their parents. ~ Travis Howe, Youth Hockey Coach
“As a hockey mom to a growing teen player, I love that this book provides quick reference suggestions for the healthiest (and quickest) solutions to eating around a busy hockey schedule! It also goes beyond and provides the supporting information and specifics for a host of health issues! Awesome go-to book for healthier skaters both now and in the future! Thank you for addressing this ongoing concern for hockey families!” ~ Shannon Gilbert, Hockey Mom
