Any coach can make you tired, but not every coach can get you faster.
If you are looking for quality speed instructors who provide a specialized speed program geared for your athlete, LET’S TALK.
Many athletes in Columbus, Ohio are coming to us for speed training because they feel if they could get faster, it would make them that much more of a better athlete and improve their confidence.
At our Dublin based speed training facility, not only are local athletes from Columbus, Dublin, Upper Arlington, Worthington, Hilliard, Westerville, and Lewis Center attending our speed sessions, but we continue to draw athletes from such distances as Reynoldsburg, Gahanna, New Albany, Bexley, Pickerington, Pataskala, Marysville, and Canal Winchester.
Many parents are coming to us saying, “Our child is a good athlete, but he/she is just so slow.” The running form isn’t where it needs to be and that initial burst isn’t there like it is with some kids. The fear is that if the speed is not improved it will come to hurt the athlete as he/she gets older when teams actually have tryouts and then cuts.
You as a parent know what’s needed to be done and some of you actually have the knowledge to help your child. But, as a parent I know this only too well. Your child does not listen to you at all when it comes to your suggestions about how speed can be improved. What the heck does mom and dad know? I’ve had parents of clients who were collegiate athletes at the highest level send their kids to me because the kid just wouldn’t listen.
Then, there is also the myth that your speed cannot be developed. If you are fast it is all-natural and if you are slow, well you better get used to it.
Wouldn’t you like to see your athlete get just a little faster and just a little more light on the feet? You’re not asking for lightning quickness, but just enough where every so often he/she was the one blowing by the defender, getting to the loose ball first, or legging out the infield hit.
Wouldn’t you want just enough quickness and speed to just see your athlete look a little more confident when playing?
Well, I’m here to tell you that I’ve been in Columbus, Ohio speed training for over 25 years and have created a speed program that can help all of the above scenarios. I’ve constantly been studying and tweaking and feel that this speed program will be the answer to all those questions. Just hear what some of Central Ohio’s finest coaches had to say about the program. [When you see Sports Conditioning Specialists, that was the old speed training facility I had in Gahanna where I first did speed training]
Who Am I And Why Should You Trust Me To Get Your Athlete Faster?
This is a fair question and you can read a lot of my story by reading the about us page.
Let me just add by saying, it takes a little more than watching a few speed videos to get individuals faster. You also can’t rest on past athletic achievements to be able to coach an athlete how to get faster. It takes years of experience and application to get a system down that is successful and I feel that I have created the speed program that does that. Click here to read a quick article on what should be important from your coach.
I also like to create a family type atmosphere. Everyone that trains with Fitness Planning Consultants, should feel a special bond where everybody is encouraging everybody to succeed. Our more experienced athletes are helping the less experienced athletes. I want to create a lot of positive vibes that will transfer over when the athletes go back to playing for their teams.
And yes, I want to get them faster and they usually do get faster.
Why Should I Send My Athlete To Speed Train At Your Facility And Not Somewhere Else?
Any coach can make you tired. Not every coach can teach you how to be faster. (obviously I like this quote) WE CAN!!
Speed training boils down to two things: improving running mechanics and improving leg power. But, how each person goes about doing that is based on physical maturity, what their issues are that we need to correct, and how fast they are able to process the changes so we can progress them through the program at a pace suited for them.
I and my staff really pride ourselves on working on the running mechanics of the individual so that his/her running form is as close to perfect as we can get. Then, and only then, can we put the athlete through the proper drills necessary to improve speed. If mechanics are ignored, all we are doing is reinforcing bad habits that might get them a little faster, but not as fast as they could get with proper mechanics.
No other speed program in Columbus, Ohio can get your athlete to look better when they run, run faster (straight ahead and laterally), and feel much more confident when they play their sports.

In fact, in this past year, we have had athletes participate in our program who have come from the following Columbus, Ohio schools do speed training with us:

These are the average improvements that an athlete could demonstrate by working at Fitness Planning Consultants, Inc.:
- Almost 3 inches in the vertical jump, with one athlete improving by 8 inches
- A decrease of .13 seconds in the 10 yard dash time, with a high of almost .4 seconds
- A decrease of .15 seconds in the 20 yard dash time, with a high of .45 seconds
- A decrease of .26 seconds in the 20 yard shuttle run, with a high of .61 seconds
- A decrease of .1 tenth of a second means you are covering a little over 2 feet faster than before
For our speed and strength programs, we can adjust the length of the program and the frequency to fit your needs. If you only have a limited amount of time or have a whole off-season, the program will be created specifically for you. We offer a shorter term quick hitter program or a longer term athlete development program and we encourage athletes to come in 2-3 times a week. If you live in Columbus, Ohio, or the surrounding areas, speed training with us is a must.
To find out how we can help you, we will recommend you start with our initial Assessment. The cost for this Assessment will be $105. This Assessment will consist of the following:
- Filling out a complete health questionnaire
- Discussing what your goals are
- Reviewing exercise history
- Discussing nutritional habits
- Taking VIDEO of your athlete running so we can critique form
- Taking selective measurements/tests
- Laying out a plan for what you need to accomplish to achieve your fitness goals
Once we have evaluated you, we will be able to explain to you the different programs that we have to get you stronger and faster. This includes, but not limited to: one-on-one training, semi-private training, and individual programs you can do on your own. Our Assessment is provided with a 100% Money Back Guarantee, in case you didn’t feel that this Assessment was valuable to you.
Please Note: You will be evaluated and tested at the initial Assessment, but you will only be re-assessed every third month you train with us. Anything less will not provide enough training to see a significant progress. We certainly allow athletes to train with us for any length of time. If you need a quick tune up between seasons, have only a short time frame, etc., but re-assessments will only be done every third month of training.
Not ready for an assessment, then sign up for a FREE consultation to meet us, see our place, and find out specifically how our services can help you out.
