    This site is dedicated to athletes of all ages who run, jump or throw. There are numerous variables within each of us that we must discover to unlock our own ultimate potential as an athlete. We may read multiple books and magazine articles on training as well as our own trial and error and yet still miss out on how to become the athlete we believe is hiding there somewhere within ourselves!
  My purpose as an elite personal trainer, track coach, World Champion Masters Athlete as well as Canadian National Champion (decathlon Canadian Olympic Trials) is to find your "weakest link" and teach you the specific exercises and game plan to elevate you to the next level. This is the secret to the quickest and most effective improvement for any athlete, any sport. When we turn your "weakest link" into a strength, what once may have seemed insurmountable is now achievable.
Here are a few of the key aspects of sprinting and speed development:
a) Start and acceleration
b) Stride power and stride length
c) Hip mobility
d) Form weakening as your body tires (core strength is normally the issue here)
e) Speed endurance
f) What is form? What does it look and feel like specifically? What should I be thinking about while I am training the sprint drills?
  Most of you reading this participate in track and field but it doesn't matter what sport you do. If you become faster....even a little bit...it makes a BIG difference. One step quicker to first base than you were before likely will improve your batting average twenty points. One step quicker as a pass receiver or coverage of a pass receiver can be the difference between you being a starter or sitting on the bench. Those who are already fast but want more....refining your speed through my coaching can be the difference between "making the finals" and "winning the finals".
Case in point:
  W55 sprinter, Daphne Sluys. In 2014 she ranked 16th in the U.S. in the sprints. We worked together beginning January 2015 and by the July Nationals in Jacksonville she won gold in the 100, 200 and 400 meters, ranking 1st in the United States in all 3 sprints! Following the Nationals, she travelled to Lyon, France for the World Masters Championships and won the 400 meters gold medal even though she never competed before at the world level in the 400 meters before this year. She also is ranked #1 in the World this year in the 400. Daphne trained hard since 2007 as a masters sprinter but in 2015, she broke through to a new level through the training methods we employed.
