Youth Camps

High School Camps

Speed Development (Ages 13+)

Speed is one of the most valuable traits an athlete can cultivate. This class is taught by former Division I track and field athlete and elite runner Keysha Benzing. Her Speed Development training follows her unique philosophy “Run Smarter, Not Harder”. This highly-varied program uses state of the art training techniques and tools to help athletes become faster and more efficient runners. Beyond just fitness training, this program will help athletes develop proper running mechanics, understand the different phases in running/sprinting (i.e., acceleration, drive phase, max speed), improve force application and production, refine their start technique, correct issues with their running posture, and instill an appreciation of what it means to compete. Training can be joined at any time and is open to all athletes of all ability levels from novice to elite ages 13 and up. Keysha believes that, while there are individuals who are natural runners, running is still a skill that EVERYONE can further develop to be a more efficient, effective, faster, and explosive athlete.

Class Schedule:

  • Monday/Wednesday/Friday @ 3pm

This program is designed to assist athletes in improving their speed, power, strength, stamina, coordination, flexibility, core, quickness, agility, mental toughness, and nutrition. Athletes are also be instructed in proper lifting technique, breathing, body mechanics, and posture. We also focus on the mental side of athletic excellence through the development of a strong work ethic, the encouragment of a “champion’s attitude”, and helping athletes learn what it means to compete.

Class Schedule:
