SPEED ACADEMY is the only strength and conditioning programme in Leeds specifically designed to improve game specific speed.
Join the revolution that’s enhancing the status of football players all over West Yorkshire.
We recognise that there’s just so much fitness information out there, but how much of it is designed specifically for football? How do you have the time and energy to include yoga for flexibility, Pilates for core stability, weight training for strength and power, SAQ for speedwork? How do you know if it’s actually transfering into improved performance when it matters?
That’s why I set up SPEED ACADEMY. You see, footballers get a raw deal. Most of the strength training information is based on either aesthetics(how you look) or being able to lift big numbers. Neither of which will have a positive effect on your game. There’s so much stuff on core stability that we seem to have lost track of why we’re doing it in the first place. Lying on the floor with your feet in the air, or performing circus tricks on a swiss ball is’t going to help you hold off a 6’3″ centre half with your left arm while you recieve a drilled pass to your right foot. And what are you meant to do with stretching? Isn’t a dynamic stretch just moving through full range? What about PNF? Yoga seems to have worked nicely for Ryan Giggs.
At Speed Academy, we are the filter. Everything you do will make you faster, more efficient, balanced and prevent you from becoming injured. From your mindset to your movement, recovery, and nutrition.
The focus is on you, the athlete, not the style of training. Yes that’s right, you’re an athlete. To dominate the multi-directional, stop-start, explosive endurance nature of football, you need to think of yourself as an athlete - who just so happens to play football.
