Ronald Fowlkes is truly passionate about mentoring, giving back to society. During his day job, he works hard to provide police and military personnel with the very best tactical gear. As a former military man and police officer, these areas are very close to his heart. In Ronald’s work with the hockey team, he stresses to his mentees the importance of always maintaining equipment properly. Ronald likes to impart the life lesson on young people, that in sports, as well as in life and death situations, the proper functioning of your equipment may be a matter of winning or losing and living or dying. The other aspect of Ronald’s mentoring with the team is in regard to the group’s physical fitness. Ronald’s Marine and police career gave him the valuable insight that he imparts today as far as the importance of equipment but it also gave him a huge body of knowledge on training the human body. Ronald develops weight based workouts and several other workout strategies for the team to help them reach their physical peak and be able to give their coaches the best performance.
