The origin of PowerWear
PowerWear began when Pertti Hasanen, founder of Pertti Hasanen Hockey Academy, and the “Pertti System”, wanted a piece of training gear that would adapt to and enhance the already challenging workout systems he used to take his hockey players to the next level. Pertti Hasanen has won the Finnish Design Award and the ISPO BrandNew Award for PowerWear.
As a fulltime Development and Skills Coach for the New Jersey Devils, Pertti’s new proprietary device, combined with the “Pertti System '' has been used to develop players into future NHL athletes.
Pertti has been training athletes for decades, and his experience spans continents and a variety of age ranges and league classes. From coaching in the Junior Tappara organisation, to being the Head European Scout for the LA Kings and Calgary Flames, Pertti’s long standing expertise in what it takes to make a performance athlete is recognized worldwide.
Unconventional methods are nothing new for Pertti, he always takes the road least traveled when developing his players’ conditioning, strength, and coordination. PowerWear was the natural culmination of over 40 years of experience in this field - and is now part of a training system not found anywhere else in the world - until today.
And now, we've revamped our original design to make PowerWear work for everyone. From the waterproof zips, to the three variations of the design.
Today, PowerWear offers every kind of athlete, gym’er, sports enthusiast or even individuals new to exercise, a dynamic new form of resistance that will expedite and enhance their ability to take their performance to the next level.
