These exercises teach the body to utilize the elastic principles of the muscles and increase fast twitch muscle function through trained activation, all while reducing the risk of soft tissue injury.

Speed Training: This part of the program provides anyone with a proper speed training progression that consists of running mechanics and technique drills. The training will include resistive running drills, free running for acceleration and top end speed, and over-speed drills.

Agility Training: Do you need to work on sport specific quickness? We will specifically focus on enhancing your change of direction, acceleration and deceleration while providing you with the proper progression of drills based on your sport and level of training.

Cardiovascular Training: Are you training for a sport? Just trying to lose some excess weight or improve your physical health? We will tailor a cardiovascular program to meet your needs.  Your training program will include various methods to improve your VO2 max.
