Trisha Feil-Johnson- Owner/Head Instructor
Raised at the Rink from the age of three, I found my passion for skating and training at a young age and started my coaching career after accomplishing my own goals as a test and competitive figure skater.
I am the owner and head instructor of TJ Power Fit and offer 25 years of coaching experience with Figure Skating and Power Skating for Hockey Players . After 21 years of coaching Figure Skating from beginner level to Sask First Team Members, I moved on to focus completely on Hockey and the development of Hockey Players on and off the ice. I have worked with many teams and individuals privately from Initiation to Pro Level Players in the NHL.
I am very passionate about skating and working with others to meet their full potential. Sports are continually changing and in order to be competitive, players need to stay on top of their game and their skills. I take great pride in the programs we offer and the knowledge and experience that I have gained from my training and working with my coaching staff. We never stop learning!
Fitness and well rounded training programs seemed the perfect fit with my skating background and always something I enjoyed doing. 10 years and 8 formats later, I am a Certified/Trained Fitness Instructor and offer multiple fitness training programs at my studio to individuals in my group or athletic teams.
I am very fortunate to work with people and to help them live the healthiest life possible. I believe that being active at any age provides benefits to your health and well being.

5 seasons in the WHL with the Prince Albert Raiders. Tim finished off his WHL season as the Captain of the PA Raiders, and stepped into the role as a University Student/Player.
Tim is currently playing with the Calgary Dinos
Tim is another student and always an exciting player to work with. He is one of the hardest working students I have had the privilege to work with. We are excited to have him on the ice when ever he is home, so having him work with us this Summer will add value to our programs.
TJ Power Fit participant from the age of 3 and one very talented player! I remember the first season working with Noah and just in awe of a 3 year old having a stride!
Noah has been helping out with our programs from a very young age and continues to come out every chance he is home to help with the programs. His skating finesse and attention to details make him a huge asset to our programs.
Noah is heading into his 2nd season with the Melville Millionaires and had an outstanding rookie season with the team.
We love to have fun with our Chaser! Our Crazy Goalie!
Chase has been part of the TJ Power Fit family as a participant for many years. We love watching Chase have his moments on Shoot Outs as a “Player” and not in his comfort zone in the net. The younger kids sure enjoy it too!
Chase loves to encourage the young up and comers and gives his insight to all of them, always taking that time to go one step further with the kids.
Chase is heading into his 3 season with the Red Deer Rebels
Another student from the beginning and one with fire in his soul! Hard working, determined and gritty player.
One of the first pictures I was able to get of Cash with a smile on his face and not the “Hockey Frown!” Cash loves working with kids when the shooting practice time is involved and enjoys sharing his tips and tricks. Hard to keep him away from that puck!
Cash will be heading into his 2nd year with the Kindersley Klippers.
Hard working doesn’t even scrape the surface when you speak of Reed. He is a “One More” student, or the last one to leave the ice or gym.
Reed is the full package player and a great role model for all players. His hard work does not just pertain to hockey, but he has maintained the highest standard in his education being award the scholastic award with the SC Legionnaires and 2019-2020 season with the Spokane Chiefs.
His dedication has paid off over the years as he is wrapping up his 3rd season with the Spokane Chiefs
