Every sport needs speed.
So many of the best players in sport rely on their acceleration. If you can go from 0 to 100 faster than the rest, you're at a serious advantage. There's no room for error when you need to get to the ball first, get across the court in time, or to put pressure on the competition on the track.
Increasing your max velocity makes your life easier as a competing athlete.
Use less energy to keep pace, make critical moves in decisive moments, catch your competitors with a head start.
Everyone can get faster. That includes you.
Athletes should not ‘pump’ the brakes when slowing down.
There is an art to decelerating that is unknown to most athletes and coaches. Starting, stopping, turning, lunging properly differentiates the good player from the great. Reduce injury risks by mastering braking strength.
Our partnership with Loughborough University Sport allows any athlete to come and learn how to run fast on a world class sport campus.
How we can help.
Face to face
Our athlete services cover all sports, ages and abilities. As a team we have accumulated numerous years of experience in different walks of life, from introducing young children to the foundations of running technique, fine tuning elite sprinters, footballers, rugby players, and returning injury prone athletes to stardom.
The Speedworks Training System is our methodology to coaching athletes; built over 7 years through coaching a variety of individuals - we measure performance when you start and take you on a journey of performance improvement.
Face to face
You don’t need to be an expert in speed, but you certainly need to know how to coach it. We take great pride in having taught and mentored some great practitioners from all backgrounds of sport performance and rehab, some of whom have gone on to start their own businesses, work for top clubs or coach their own successful athletes.
Whether you require direct coaching exposure with face-to-face practicals, or simply to want to watch our webinars at your own convenience, our coach services will provide you with any help and education you may need.

What people say
Previous: Intern at SpeedWorks
1. the importance of understanding the human that’s in front of you and how they tick in order to get the most out of them.
2. knowing what you are chasing and keep that central but be flexible in your approach to remain adaptable to the complex problem that is human performance.
3. the value of spending time deconstructing basic athletic movements central to most sports, and developing a coaching eye doing so. This skill is actually quite rare in strength and conditioning practitioners.
