What is Speed Training?

Speed training involves running at different variations and pace levels with the goal being to build pace and endurance. It is not only about who can run the fastest. It is also about who can run the fastest and maintain pace across all quarters or halves of their given sport. Some sports require long-distance running and some require short fast sprints. Whatever the case, speed training will improve overall performance and endurance of the athlete.

At DiamondFit Performance, we value speed as the second most important foundation for athletic ability. Once the athlete has built up sufficient muscle through our strength training, it is time to focus on speed. Our training consists of different variations of running. Some of these variations include running backward, side steps and up and down exercises. Speed training is more than simply sprinting on a treadmill, though our high speed treadmill is a breeding ground for high speed athletes. We also teach the correct form of running and break old bad habits. We build endurance at a pace that fits each athlete by using a data driven approach, and tailor the program and performance goals to the specific athlete and sport.

What are the Benefits of Speed Training?

Speed training has a multitude of benefits that are more than simply making the athlete faster. Through our speed training program the athlete will burn fat while gaining muscle. After a high-intensity sprint, their body starts burning 100 percent fat to resupply their system. The great thing about burning fat is that athletes will become slimmer and their endurance will increase. Losing fat will allow muscular strength to contribute to faster movement, increasing overall speed.

Speed training also reduces the risk of injury. Running engages muscle movements and ligaments that are not always pushed to the maximum without specific training exercises. Through our training programs, muscles become more flexible and the whole body is conditioned to have greater balance, which reduces the chances of injury for the athlete.
