Speed/Sprint Training

Are you a football player and need to improve your 40 time, a basketball player who needs better court agility and speed for those fast breaks, a baseball player who needs to get around the bases faster? Sprint technique and training is highly important in many different sports. Risen Performance will teach you to run more efficiently, making it easier to run fast, and in the end increase your overall speed.

Some athletes were born to run, some athletes run naturally, other athletes have to learn how to run, and even others have to learn to run and are taught incorrectly. Through out my years in Track and Field I certainly had to learn how to run. Athletes can improve their speed by looking at and correcting bio mechanics and technique. Add in proper training and that improvement can many times be drastic. I was able to improve from a 13 second 100m dash in high school to sprinting the anchor leg of the 4x100m relay team for Arizona State University. By the middle of my professional career I was able to average 10.60 seconds during my 100m intervals in practices. Learning to sprint well also took me to the top of my game in my event, winning a Gold Medal at the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games and a Bronze Medal in the 2001 World Championships.

Sprinting and sprinting well are two completely different things. An athlete might be fast but if they are not efficient they are not as fast as they can be, and running fast will be much harder on their bodies than it needs to be. Also, incorrect bio mechanics can many times lead to injuries like worn out cartilage and other joint issues later on in their careers. We teach athletes correct mechanics, balance and stability to make them more efficient, more consistent and ultimately faster. This can help you remain fast during a long game and keep that extra edge in the 4th Quarter.
