During July and August 2008 the world-known NHL hockey players Pavel Kubina from Toronto Maple Leafs, Rostislav Olesz from Florida Panthers hockey team and their personal condition trainer Igor Horyl came to Czech Republic to visit families and to continue with their trainings as a preparation for their next hockey season.
Michal Košátko was asked to have 2 trainings per week with both players during summer months. All the trainings were conceived for speed increasing, reaction enhancement and overall improving physical condition. Parts of trainings were also dedicated to boxing techniques, kicking, basics of sparring and improving kinetic ability.
All sportsmen trained hard and also enjoyed trainings. For Michal it was a good experience to train successful NHL players. Good luck in Stanley Cup.
