Strength for Speed

Our Strength for Speed Program focuses on individual performance enhancement and helps you break plateaus and reach new levels of competition. We help you improve your athletic performance and reduce the risk of injury by providing custom training tailored to enhance your strengths and minimize your performance limitations.

Benefits

Participants in our Strength for Speed Program achieve some or all of the following results:

  • Improved body awareness
  • Optimized strength
  • Increased muscular endurance
  • Improved running efficiency
  • Improved acceleration, velocity and agility
  • Better stability, balance & coordination (improved neuromuscular control)
  • Improved range of motion
  • Enhanced breathing
  • Enhanced body composition (more muscle & less body fat)
  • Increased metabolic efficiency

The difference between our Strength for Speed Program and other strength training programs is our professionals provide you with exercises and coaching so your hard work in the weight room results in enhanced acceleration, velocity and efficiency on the track or sports field.

Upon completion of our Strength for Speed Program you will have improved your ability to generate speed throughout your athletic career and move like never before.

Approach

Our approach is comprehensive. We help you achieve your performance goals by using years of experience and knowledge of kinesiology to apply contemporary as well as traditional methods of conditioning.

We usually start by talking with you and your coach to obtain an understanding of your specific goals, competition schedule and coach's training plan. Next we perform a biomechanical Analysis. We use the information to design personal strength and range of motion programs for your goals. The custom program is well integrated with your sports practice and competition schedule if participating in-season.

We provide one-to-one, small group and remote training (for experienced athletes) arrangements. The frequency of training sessions we advise is determined by a number of factors to optimize training intensity and recovery, which is necessary for peak performance. Generally, we recommend you complete at least two training sessions per week because muscle begins to atrophy after approximately three days without adequate stimulation. Depending on the relationship of the training period to your competition season, it may be beneficial to train more than two times per week or only once per week. Your Strength for Speed training schedule is determined in advance and depicted in a periodized training plan.


Each Strength for Speed Program participant receives:
  • Event or position performance needs identification
  • Individual stability, strength and movement assessment
  • 2-3 One-to-one or small group training sessions per week
  • Individual coaching to optimize stability, strength, power and stamina
  • Individual range of motion enhancement program
  • Mobile device access to instruction and videos of range of motion programs

Locations

Our in-person sessions are conducted within semi-private training environments that facilitate concentration and allow greater control of exercise intensity. Our one-to-one and small group sessions are conducted in North Bethesda, Maryland.
