The ULTIMATE ATHLETE speed program is unlike any other you’ll find in the Charlotte area. The protocols take the most effective acceleration, maximal velocity and multi-directional drills to build a system that utilizes fast twitch muscle development. The program is devoid of any “fluff” or unnecessary drills and focuses on one purpose only: Making athletes faster for better performance on the field, court or combined performance. All exercises are completely customizable to ensure that each athlete gets exactly what he or she needs.
Increasing strength is critical to developing the complete athlete. Most programs do not value the strength component enough or simply do not focus on the right foundational exercises. Here at ULTIMATE ATHLETE, we value our speed and strength programs equally. We require all of our athletes to train in each discipline to reach their maximum potential. The protocols take on a holistic approach in a safe and age-appropriate curriculum.
