How to Run Faster

At DiamondFit Performance, our speed training program is more than just running on a treadmill as fast as you can. It consists of various speed related exercises such as backward running, side steps, and foot ladder work. No matter the sport, our training will help athletes execute their movements faster and with more coordination.

Our training approach values strength as the most important foundation for athletic training. Once we establish and develop a strong foundation in strength, we will focus on speed. Strength levels must be addressed before because increased muscle mass in the legs means more explosiveness can be achieved for athletic movements, which increases speed. Our coaches teach the correct way to run and break athletes out of any current bad habits. This will make running much easier on the athlete’s body in addition to increasing performance.

Benefits of Speed Training

There are a multitude of benefits associated with speed training that go beyond getting from point A to point B faster. In terms of injuries, speed training makes the body more flexible and resistant to the stresses that sport puts on the joints. High-intensity running engages muscles in a new way that puts a lot of strain on bones and muscles. This impact strengthens the body and prepares it for whatever may happen during competition. Speed training does a lot more for the body than simply improving speed and performance. It provides benefits that will improve the athlete’s overall health and resilience in the long term.
