You First Need to understand that speed is a skill anyone can learn.
Too many athletes, coaches, and parents believe the myth that speed is just something you’re “born with” or not…
If speed is just something only a select few are born with, why does every top sprinter in the world have a coach?
If you’re fast, you’re fast. Right?
The fastest athletes should just be able to show up and win everything, every time.
It doesn’t work that way.
REAL speed must be constantly developed and refined.
Speed is a skill…
And you can learn it.
The next step needed to getting faster is understanding that there are different types of speed:
Here are some:
- Starting speed: Those crucial “first three steps” for example
- Top speed: This is what most people think about when they think about someone who’s “fast”
- Change of direction: In team sports, this is perhaps THE most valuable tool
- Deceleration: The ability to slow down rapidly is key to keeping opponents off guard
It’s very rare for any athlete to master all these facets of speed.
But once you know the types of speed, you can design a plan to improve each one.
Believing you’ve “maxed out” on your speed is like saying you’ll never get stronger than you are today.
We all know that’s not true.
Your body and nervous system are evolving all the time.
You can take advantage of that…
But speed is also a highly refined skill requiring very specific training to tap into”
You won’t learn much algebra in Spanish class.
You won’t learn to play a musical instrument in history class.
That doesn’t make sense.
Developing explosive speed, the kind of speed that changes the outcome of games requires proven techniques and experience.
- Stride length
- Stride frequency
- Upper body coordination
- Starting technique and positioning
- The optimal range of motion
- Hamstring to quad strength ratios
- Nervous system-specific training
And much more…
All of these traits must be addressed in a thorough speed training program.
Let’s face it, in today’s sports, speed is king.
How would it change your game if you…
Had an explosive “first three strides” that left opponents struggling to keep up with you?
Had the ability to stop and change direction on a dime?
Had that “extra gear” when you suddenly needed to cover a lot of ground?
Think that might come in handy?
Now you can…
BIM Fitness & Performance is now offering specialized Speed Training sessions designed to address every aspect of speed development.
These 45 minute long sessions help you master all the types of speed mentioned above in combination with the strength development necessary to maximize each type.

As the program progresses, so does the confidence you’ll have in your speed.
