Are your athletes still struggling to increase speed and quickness?

One of the biggest myths that goes around to coaches and parents is that you can’t train speed…

So many coaches and parents of youth athletes fail to help them develop their true speed, quickness and athleticism potential because of this myth.

These same coaches and parents try to compensate with more skills training and extra time spend practicing and playing on multiple teams of that same sport…  even year-round.

Are you making this mistake?

The truth is… not only CAN you train speed, you have a much better chance of developing more speed, agility and long-term athleticism in your young athletes by doing it when they are young and developing.

One of the most important periods of motor development for children is between the ages of 8 and 12. During this time, children are developmentally ready to acquire the fundamental movement skills that are the cornerstones of all athletic development. These fundamental skills include running, throwing, jumping, hopping, and bounding—the ABC’s of athletics. The introduction of the ABC’s of athleticism (agility, balance, coordination, speed) during this period will lay the foundation of athletic excellence for later years.

Training should focus on building them up from a foundational level with exercises, games and drills that not only appeal to their growth and development, but appeal to their curiosity and enthusiasm.

If your athletes are having fun, they will be more engaged.  If they are more engaged they will experience more success.

Consider it a window of opportunity:)

Explosive Jump Clinic Series

How Would You Like to Discover the Secrets to Becoming a Better and More Powerful Jumper, Making Your Young Athlete the Most Dangerous Player on the Court?

 

In our Explosive Jump Clinic Featuring Vertimax, we will unveil all of our jump training secrets that will have your athlete:

  • Jumping higher than ever without the risk of injury
  • Landing with a lower risk of injury
  • Jumping with the proper mechanics
  • Improving efficiency to preserve their energy and keep them on the court longer

Space is Limited to the First 6 Registrants – Guarantee Your Athlete’s Spot Today!

Dominant jumping skills are the #1 most overlooked component to athletic success. And although it is commonly believed that jumping ability can’t be taught, that is 100% wrong! The ability to express power and speed through jumping is critical for on the field and on the court success.

Unfortunately, more and more coaches and athletes are prescribing to the belief that jumping ability is innate and can’t be trained. Worse yet, coaches and trainers refuse to acknowledge that a significant percentage of ligamentous knee injuries (especially in young women) are due to improper landing technique, which is entirely preventable. That is why athletes must turn to intelligent training to ensure their performance—and their protection.

The problem with the typical jumping training is that most trainers go about it the wrong way. They run the athletes to no end and have them perform countless series of jumps. The high-volume approach does little more than tire them out, in many cases reinforcing improper technique due to fatigue. A tired athlete is an athlete at risk for injury, with knee injuries being among the most serious.

Our comprehensive clinic will help your athletes develop a foundation for jumping and landing mechanics so they can properly express the speed and power needed to dominate their competition when the time is right.

Here’s What Athletes Like Yours Have To Say About Us

Clay Conner (Frederick, Md), Shippensburg University and Oakdale High School Basketball Player

“As a college basketball player, I was looking for an edge going into my final two seasons at Shippensburg. I am so thankful I trained with TrueAP! In one Summer, I increased my vertical jump from 33″ to 36”, which was the highest on my team at Ship. I’m more explosive than I’ve ever been and my only regret is that I didn’t start training with TrueAP earlier. I’d recommend this program to anyone looking to take their game to the next level.”

 

 

Katie Jordan (Hagerstown, Md), Panhandle Boomers and North Hagerstown High School Volleyball Player

“I am not only a stronger, faster, more powerful volleyball player, but my training has given me the confidence to excel at the Varsity level as a sophomore and during the competitive club season. The trainers push me to my limits in a way that makes me want to work harder not only for myself, but for them as well. I’d recommend this program because it’s fun and gets results.”

Linear Speed Clinic Series

How Would You Like to Discover the Secrets to Developing Blazing Speed That Will Make Your Young Athlete Faster & More Dangerous on the Field or Court?

In our Linear Speed Clinic, we will unveil all of our speed training secrets that will have your athlete:

  • Accelerating faster than ever without the risk of injury
  • Reaching top speed faster than ever
  • Running with the proper mechanics
  • Improving efficiency to preserve their energy and keep them on the field longer

The #1 request for performance training is speed. We all know that speed kills and the fastest athletes on the field or court have a huge advantage over their competition!

In our recent poll of hundreds of coaches, the number one thing that they wanted to improve in their athletes was their speed! I have yet to meet a coach that thinks an athlete is TOO fast or TOO quick.

Sprinting is a skill that can be developed and dramatically improved using the right combination of technique and training. Because some people aren’t nauturally fast some parents and coaches wrongly assume there is little they can do about it.

But Think of it like this. While it’s true not every athlete can be an Olympic sprinter, most athletes have never been taught how to run or move correctly, if at all. As you turn their weaknesses into strengths, they will operate at a much higher percent of their full potential. 

And you’ll learn exactly how to do that in our Linear Speed Clinic Series as we breakdown the fundamentals of sprinting including proper posture, proper mechanics, and proper rhythm.

Rodney Dorsey (Frederick, Md), University of Towson and Tuscarora High School Football Player

Other athletes in my area were training with TrueAP and that motivated me to get started. I’ve always had great speed but Josh and TrueAP helped me improve even more by focusing on making improvements to my form and technique. From TrueAP, I’ve gained knowledge, drills, and techniques that I’ve continued to use in my athletic career. I am more efficient and explosive than I’ve ever been. 

 

 

 

 

Kaela (Chantilly, Va), Chantilly Youth Association Soccer Player

I wanted to be faster on the soccer field. I knew if I wanted to continue to play at a high level that I needed to work on my speed and reaction. TrueAP’s training was not only only helpful but fun. Improving my speed and athleticism has improved my overall game on the field, it’s the best training I’ve been a part of.

Your Season is Over…Now What?

Quick Tips to Re-Charge After Your Season.

If your sport season is coming to a close, it can be tempting to attack the weight room with new enthusiasm. But while you may be itching to hit the ground running, it’s important to take some time for to reflect, rest and recover before you look toward next season. Here are three quick tips to help you re-charge after your season.

REFLECT

Preparation and performance can be categorized in 3 areas:

  • Physical – Cardiovascular fitness, speed/agility, strength/core training, diet and nutrition, injury prevention.
  • Fundamental – Aspects related to the development of the many physical skills specifically related to the sport you participate in. 
  • Mental – Focus, intensity, purpose, trust, strategy formulation, adversity and coping skills, decision-making capabilities.

No matter how good you are in a sport, you can always get better and improve. Few athletes actually take the time to assess, critique, and formulate strategies to improve in an honest and purposful manner.

Try this short exercise…

When answering the following questions, be as specific and detailed as possible in relation to the physical, fundamental, and mental aspects of your preparation and performance.

  1. What aspects of your performance were you pleased with last season?
  2. What aspects of your performance were you NOT pleased with last season?
  3. What is your assessment of your daily preparation during the past season?
  4. How can your preparation improve?
  5. How have you matured as a person and as an athlete since last season?

REST and RECOVER

After the season your body needs a break. There will be plenty of time to train for your next season, and the best way to start preparing now is to give your body enough time to fully recover. Take two weeks off of high-intensity activity and address any injuries.

This rest period includes all structured high-intensity activity—no strength training and no workouts or pick-up games. 

However, you don’t need to stop ALL activity. 

Stretching (try these 3 mobility moves), foam-rolling (article and FREE CHEAT SHEET on foam rolling), and low-intensity cross-training—like riding a stationary bike, going for a brisk walk—are great options for active rest. 

Resist the urge to jump back into training immediately after the season to take the time reflect, rest, recover, and re-charge!

7 Lame Excuses

Adults…this one’s for you.

Whenever we don’t want to do something like exercising we tend to think of creative excuses to get ourselves out of it. Excuses serve a simple purpose: to relieve some of the guilt associated with not doing whatever it was we said we were going to do.

Ultimately though, these excuses start to add up and disempower and diminish our lives. If you really want to do something, you will make time for it instead of making excuses.

Here are seven of the most common and disempowering excuses that people give for not joining our adult fitness program. Let’s look at each of them and how to overcome them one by one.

1. I am not fit enough. 

This is probably the biggest fear of most who are considering joining a new program. Lucky for you, True AP’s Adult Fitness Program is geared for all fitness levels from beginner to advanced. We welcome all ages and all fitness abilities – our youngest current participant is in their 20’s and our oldest is in their 60’s!  Our coaches are there to work with all fitness levels and will have modifications and advancements of every exercise. You can work as hard or as easy as you want…it’s your workout! But, we promise we will push you to your limits!

2. I cannot afford it. 

Our classes are extremely affordable as our pricing breaks down to $5-$8 per session! Realize, you are working with a certified fitness professional in a personal / individualized setting. Every time you participate, you will get results & that’s why you train – TO GET RESULTS! The better question is… How much time and money have you wasted on fitness memberships, vitamins, supplements, books, and fitness products trying to achieve your fitness goals?

3. I will start next month.

The problem is, next month you will have the same excuse. Think about it…how many times have you ALREADY used that excuse? The longer you wait, the harder it becomes! FORM NEW HABITS TODAY!

4. I don’t have time.

Sorry but this is just another excuse, nothing more. We all have responsibilities, but there’s nothing more important to you and your family than your health. If the only time of the day to exercise is at 5am, then get up early and make it happen. It’s painful at first, but you’ll thank yourself afterwards and feel much better for the rest of the day. Our classes are 1 hour out of your 24 hour day and likely no more than 3 hours of your 168 hour week! You have time, you need to make time – it’s all about your PRIORITIES!

5. I don’t like running.

Great! We don’t like running either! In fact, we do very minimal running during class. Any running that we do is under 30 yards.

6. Exercise is hard work.

Ask any current participant how they feel before, during, and after each training session. My guess… Nervous. Challenged. Accomplished – in that exact order! BUT, just because you will be pushed harder than you can push yourself on your own, doesn’t mean it won’t be the most fun you’ve ever had working out! “If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you!”

7. I am a member of a gym.

Great! BUT our training program will get your more results in 1 month than you will get in 1 year on your own at the gym. You get a certified coach and individualized instruction every single time without the expensive cost. No gym can give this to you.

Peak in the Playoffs

 

Want to help your team peak in the playoffs?

Looking to go on a miraculous run through the playoffs with an average team?

Or are you trying to finally breakthrough and beat one of the elite programs in your sport?

Or are you top-seeded and wondering how your team will handle the pressure of expectations?

Here are five strategies to ensure that your team is motivated, fearless, and focused when it counts the most – the playoffs!

1. Stick to what got you there.
Do what works for you. Don’t feel like you need to change up your whole routine and game plan. Stick to what works for you and trust it to work again during the playoffs. Stay consistent with your routine. Remember that consistent preparation leads to consistent performance.

2. Execute the small things. Don’t beat yourself.
Championship teams are usually the ones who consistently do all the small things necessary to win. Focus your team on the top 3-5 battles you need to control to win the overall war. By focusing on and taking care of these small things, you force your opponents to beat you and often avoid beating yourself.

3. Know how to quickly refocus teammates.

Coaches and captains must know how to quickly and effectively refocus teammates when they are down, distracted, aggravated, or scared. You can’t allow people to go into the tank when you need their focus, confidence, and performance. It’s the ability to keep their team’s competing play after play, rather than succumbing to the inevitable adversity, distractions, and hassles of competition, that determines the outcome of many games.

4. Compete aggressively.
Take it to people, dictate the tempo… Go out and play the game with passion and vigor. Often it is the individual and team that is the most aggressive that comes out on top. 

5. Become a team of DESTINY
Many of the teams that I have been fortunate to witness win championships felt they were destined to do so. No matter what situation they found themselves in, whether they were down with little time left, had a tough injury to a key player, or weren’t getting the appropriate calls, they somehow felt that it was never enough to deter them from reaching their ultimate goal. They persisted on and trusted the process that it was all meant to be. Give your team every reason to feel they are destined for success. Assuming you have paid the price of success, remind your team that the training, your practices, and the lessons you learned throughout the season have all prepared you for this moment in time.

You want your team to feel – “This is our time.”
