1) Closed-Door: How to Create Profitable & Effective Speed Camps


On the Sunday of the 2009 IYCA International Summit, I did a 4-hour closed-door presentation along with Pat Rigsby:


:: How to Teach Deceleration & Acceleration (6-Step Sequence)


:: How to Prepare Athletes for Speed Combine Camps


:: How to Create Programs that Are Effective in 1, 2 or 7 Day Speed Camps


:: How to Write & Send Press Releases So You Get in the Paper & on TV


:: How to Create Free Community Events that Lead to BIG BUCKS


This seminar was wildly successful and became an international smash hit.  Not just because of what I taught about effective Speed & Agility Training, but because I revealed my own formula for creating weekend Speed Camps that routinely generated as much as $10,000!!

Kids Fitness: Top 3 Reasons to Play Simon Says

Kids Fitness

I’ve just released a very special video of one of my favorite presenters in the world of sport and  kids fitness training, Lee Taft.

It’s from the 2010 IYCA International Summit, where Lee started off his presentation by playing Simon Says for kids fitness with the entire audience – all 300 of us!!


But it wasn’t all fun and games as he made some incredibly valid points before he took us through the game:



3 Keys to Successful Speed Camps



Speed Camps Revenue

Before I get into the 3 Keys to successful speed camps, I wanted to tell you that after much deliberation we’ve decided to give you access the online version of the closed door Workshop that Pat Rigsby and I did on running Profitable Speed Camps & Clinics when you order the Youth Speed Specialist Certification before tomorrow at 3pm.


This was previously only available to people who attended the webinar this past Monday, but we’ve decided that this information is too powerful to exclude those that couldn’t attend the webinar.


So you can grab the Youth Speed & Agility Specialist Certification *and* online access to the Running Profitable Speed Camps & Clinics Workshop here:




In the Youth Speed & Agility Specialist Certification, Lee Taft and I give you a lot  more than just information on training athletes to be faster.


We also reveal our complete system for running successful and profitable Speed Camps.


Something we have both had tremendous success with over the years.


So, here are our Top 3 Keys that will help you understand how to make  your Speed Camps the most on-demand program in your area:



Fitness Programs For Kids: Top 3 Keys To Speed Training



Fitness Programs For Kids

Fitness Programs For Kids speed training for young athletes
International superstar Speed Coach Lee Taft and I agree on almost everything related to training athletes.


Together, we have found through our combined 40 years of experience that these are the 3 most important factors to a successful speed training program –



Speed Key #1 – Create a Developmental System
Training for speed has to be developmental in nature.


With younger athletes (6 – 9 years old) training for speed is a matter of allowing kids to explore various aspects of movement from a self-learning perspective.


As a Coach or Trainer, your objective is to create games and drills that provide a broad-base of multi-directional movement (i.e. forward, backwards) as well as timing-oriented skills (i.e. skipping to a specific cadence).


It is important to resist the urge to ‘over-teach’ or ‘make perfect’ the way your youngsters are performing these skills.


Young nervous systems must be given the opportunity to learn through a trial and error process, what quality movement feels like.


With athletes 10 – 18, your training efforts can become much more teaching based and focus will shift to perfection of movement habits and eventually ‘drilling’ (i.e. repetitive sets of specific skills).


Do not be fooled into thinking that young athletes and more mature athletes can learn the skills associated with speed & agility in the same way, however.


A developmental system is necessary for optimal speed & agility training.


Our new Youth Speed & Agility Specialist Certification contains the complete developmental process that Lee and I have used successfully for nearly 4 decades.

Coaching Young Athletes Too Much or Not Enough?



Coaching Young Athletes

I have long contended that too much coaching when it comes to working
with very young athletes is far worse than not enough instruction.


Give them ideas of what it is you want.


Offer more instruction if they need it.


And then let them play.


Allow them to figure it out.


This process builds Athletic Intelligence and gives very young athletes the
ability to warehouse knowledge through a trial and error sort of way.


Do you agree?


Disagree and want to explain why?


Please watch this two minute video during which I explain how to correctly be
Coaching Young Athletes the process of deceleration.


Give it a watch and leave your comments below. I really want to know your
thoughts on the matter.

Youth Speed Training Exposed



Youth Speed Training Mistakes

Everyone claims to be an ‘expert’ don’t they?


It’s the one title that I truly can’t stand.


And I say that because there are very few real experts in the industry of
fitness and sports training.


Gray Cook comes to mind as one of them.


So to does Alwyn Cosgrove, Al Vermeil and Carlo Alvarez.


Experts all.


Easy to spot on expert, too. They’re the ones who have a major track record
of success when it comes to training athletes, but are also ALWAYS on the
lookout for stuff they don’t know.


Lifelong learners.


That to me is what defines an ‘expert’.


The greatest expert I know in terms of youth speed training and agility training is a man that
I am 100% sure you know.

Youth Speed Training in New Jersey



Youth Speed Training and Business


So I’m just back from a wonderful weekend in New Jersey at the Fast Track
to Fitness Millions conference.


The conference was hosted by my two favorite guys – Pat Rigsby and Nick


The speaking line-up was an unbelievable ‘whose who’ of fitness industry
Coaches and Business Leaders –


BJ Gaddour
Zach Even Esh
Mike Boyle
Chris McCombs
Jim Labadie
Jason C Brown
Pamela Macelree


But in my opinion, the show was stolen by a man who has absolutely changed
everything about the way speed and agility is taught and trained.


My very good friend, Lee Taft.


As usual, Lee lit up the crowd with his no-nonsense, easy-to-understand and
cutting edge youth speed training system.
