Your Ticket To REAL Speed Development Is Right Here
Private speed training. Personal workout design. Advanced training concepts. We’ll give you every advantage possible over your competition.
Scholarships are often handed to the fastest athletes.
More playing time is given to the faster players.
And the faster you are, the more of an impact you can make no matter what level of your sport you currently play at.
So if you could actually, TRULY work to improve your speed, why wouldn’t you devote 1-2 hours per week on it?

OUR SPEED DEVELOPMENT SYSTEM
Did you know that even a small technical error in your stride, multiplied over dozens of strides, can add up to a 0.2 or more second difference in your 30, 40, or 60 yard dash times?
That 0.2 seconds of improvement is SOMEWHERE in your stride, you just need to identify where it can come from, then hammer away at it with the right exercises.
How do we do that?
We use video analysis and a 24-point break down of your technique, we’ll determine what your greatest priorities are for speed development training.
Here’s a few examples of how video can lead to becoming faster:
EXAMPLE 1 – Stride Length
The before and after example to the left shows this athlete initially taking short, choppy steps in their acceleration/start phase.
The issue we identified during the video breakdown was limited arm power, limited drive through his back leg, and limited knee drive.
From here we created a speed enhancement workout specific to his needs that focused on assisting in all three areas.
With practice, in time he learned how to generate more power, leading to longer strides and faster sprint times at both 10 and 30 yards.
EXAMPLE 2 – Posture Correction
If there is a hidden secret to improving speed, it would be your posture.
Seriously, the impact your upper body positioning has on your speed and agility mechanics is profound. In fact, it is not only the first place we look to improve but also where almost all elite track coaches would look, as well.
Here we had an athlete who exhibited a subtle but important rounding of the upper back (photos on the right). This curve makes it harder to drive fully through your back leg, and limits knee drive.
After identifying the issue with video, we created a unique workout plan to assist this athlete. Once again, the change in technique led directly to improvements in his timed sprints.
EXAMPLE 3 – Overstriding
You can have great posture and a powerful stride, but if your front leg reaches out too far it will act as a brake and force you to work much harder in each successive stride.
The end result is you have to work as if each stride is your first, missing an opportunity to build momentum and hit your top speed earlier.
Not to mention, having to overcome an overstride forces you to work harder, leading to early fatigue.
Thanks to a video breakdown we can see on the left that this athlete lets his shin swing a bit too far (under 90 degrees is optimal), but with corrective training the problem was resolved and a more efficient stride was achieved.
We could go on with more examples of how we develop greater speed for our athletes, but it all comes down to this simple 3 step process;
- Identify each person’s greatest needs through video analysis and other simple tests (vertical jump, 30 yard dash, etc)
- Use that information to properly prepare a personalized workout program that addresses and fixes the issue.
- Repeat steps 1 and 2 to continually help all our kids improve over time.
Pretty simple, right?
And We Make It Fun, Too!
Building on your personal workout of technical drills, we want to move to competitive, game-speed scenarios where you can immediately test out your improved mechanics at the pace you’ll need to be competitive in your sport.
This is why our last block within our Speed & Agility sessions contains full speed training.
It is important to know that your nervous system needs to feel speed to be able to adapt and improve. Even with just a few repetitions at full speed in any exercise, your body can take that feeling and use it to become a little bit better for the next time you’re required to play at top speed.
So we use the competitive spirit of our kids and we put you in read and react games to force this adaptation.
It works, and it can be fun too!
OTHER PREMIUM SPEED & AGILITY FEATURES AT POWER SOURCE
As we said, this is not a large group, cookie-cutter speed program like you’ll see in a lot of sports training programs.
This is personal, small-group training that never goes above 12 athletes per class.
And we have a secret weapon at our disposal – the Woodway Curve sprint treadmill.
This is by far our greatest sprint technique tool. Its unique design fixes technical errors over time which of course makes you faster, but it helps in another key area – injury prevention.
Most lower body aches and pains for kids playing sports comes from poor running technique. The Woodway Curve gradually works those out of your stride, and when combined with the personal programming it creates a killer combination for your speed development!
Many of the best sports performance facilities in the world depend on the Woodway Curve, and we now can say our athletes have access to this incredible tool as well.
HOW CAN YOU GET INVOLVED?
Are you willing to put in an hour or two each week to make noticeable progress?
Do you want to see your sprint times decrease by 0.2 seconds or more as soon as possible?
Contact us TODAY and we will set you up with an initial evaluation and a trial membership!
What Power Source does in these classes is just awesome. It is really a non-stop session of technique drills that get you focused on what you can do better. Not only do you work on skills, but you’re testing speed all the time to see if you’re getting better. It’s a great class to do if you’re serious about becoming a better athlete.”

This program has greatly helped me in track. At the beginning of the season I ran a 24 second lap (133 meters), but thanks to what I learned here by the end if was 18 seconds. This helped my 4 X 200 indoor track team break our school record!*”

Before my speed classes started I had always wondered why I wasn’t as fast as I thought I could be. It was really frustrating until I started the lessons. I was shown all the different aspects of running and how to improve them not only during the lesson time but on my own as well. The classes are small so that my individual needs could be addressed while also watching others to help get a better understanding on each speed aspect.”

In both my events (55 hurdles & 300 meter dash) my times improved a lot from last season. Even after just 4 speed sessions my coach told me I had gained a lot of speed. My softball coaches have noticed too!*”
