How to Choose a Speed Training Program

Lately, it seems like everyone is coming out with a speed training program. On the one hand, it’s good that there is a lot of information available about speed training. On the other hand, if you are trying to decide which speed training program to engage in, it can be overwhelming.

There are some key factors to consider when looking for a speed training program and this brief article is meant to help you make an informed decision.

Working with a trainer vs. purchasing a program. This is one of the most important factors to consider, and you have to decide what is right for you. Price and schedule availability can often help you make this choice. Working with a trainer is going to cost much more than purchasing a speed training program and doing it on your own. For example, Ultimate Speed Development only costs $77, while many trainers charge more than this for one session.
You also need to consider whether or not your trainer will be able to accommodate your schedule. Doing the program on your own will allow you to train anytime you’d like.
But, doing your speed training program with a trainer can be much more productive if you can find a quality coach. I’ll talk more about that in a moment, but understand that a good coach can provide feedback and motivation that you can’t get on your own. Some sports performance centers also have speed training equipment you may not have access to. If you can find a qualified coach or facility near you that has flexible scheduling at a price you can afford, you’re certainly in luck.

The coach.
As I said before, it seems like everyone says they have a speed training programthese days. Of course, there are some great coaches out there, but there are also a lot of sub-par trainers claiming to be something they are not. These people will waste your time, money and energy. It’s hard to determine who to trust, but here are a few things to consider.

Education & Certifications – Look for a degree (an advanced degree is even better) in kinesiology, exercise physiology or a related field from a reputable university. Also, make sure he/she is certified by a major organization such as the NSCA, NASM or CSCCA. It’s not hard to get certified, but it represents a baseline level of knowledge and professionalism.

Experience – What has the coach done and how long has he/she been doing it?

Endorsements – Who has this coach worked with and who trusts him? You can learn a lot about a coach by who he has worked with and who trusts him. A quality coach will have plenty of support and testimonials from credible sources. Unfortunately, many online marketers just get testimonials from their friends or simply make them up. Some even say things like they’re clients don’t want you to know they are working with the trainer because “it would be giving up their secret.” Don’t be fooled by garbage like this. Look into those statements.

Google – Before deciding on your speed training program, a simple Google search can give you a lot of information. You’ll recognize the scammers when there is very little available or everything out there is from their friends.

The program.

A few of the factors that should be included in a good speed training program are discussed in my article How To Improve Speed found elsewhere on this site.

I hope this information helps you find the right speed training program for you. You don’t want to waste your time or get scammed, so make sure to do your homework. There’s nothing I hate more than a so-called expert who wastes an athlete’s time with fancy, yet worthless, drills and exercises. A good speed training program can really change your athletic career, so finding the right system is an important process. Good luck.
