The Washington Capitals were eliminated from the playoffs by the New York Islanders last Thursday. Five days later, Tom Wilson is already back in the gym preparing for next season.
Tuesday morning, Wilson spent his morning throwing hands with boxing trainer for the stars, Jorge Blanco. Blanco is a former Spanish national kickboxing champion and a former member of the Spanish national and Olympic boxing teams.

Blanco also posted a video himself where he highlighted how loud Wilson’s punches popped into his gloves.
Wilson has trained with Blanco before and even produced a testimonial on his website.
Working with Jorge last summer was a really worthwhile experience. Every time I stepped foot in his gym, Jorge always put me through hard workouts. More importantly he showed me how to be efficient in my work. Learning to control my breathing and introducing me to the component of relaxation during highly intense workouts was something I hadn’t touched on anywhere else and I found it really improved my overall performance.
Wilson also celebrated his Stanley Cup day in Toronto with his trainer.

Not a secret I coach hockey athletes. This past weekend I was invited to join my friend & veteran student @tom_wilso at his Stanley Cup celebration. I could not be more proud of him. He deserves it. Not only that but I have also been lucky enough to have coached 3 of the studs that were a big part of the Washington C this year, @smithpelly & Brett Connolly, It is an awesome feeling to see them achieve what any hockey athlete dreams off. Big Congrats boys👊🏼👊🏼!! No es un secreto que entreno jugadores de hockey. Este pasado fin de semana mi amigo y estudiante veterano Tom Wilson me invitó a su celebración de la Copa Stanley (el equivalente a la Champions en fútbol). Muy muy contento de verlo disfrutar porque se lo merece. No solo eso sino que también he tenido la suerte de entrenar 3 atletas que han formado parte de los Washington Capitals este año Tom, Devante Smith Pelly & Brett Connoly. Esta dpm verlos conseguir lo que todo jugador de hockey desearía en su carrera! Enhorabuena chavales!!👊🏼👊🏼
