This is one of the key elements in improving the speed of the performer. By using an efficient technique the performer can harness the strength and power that they already have, enabling them to run faster. This element has such an immediate effect that the performer is keen to train and learn more about the other elements of the training programme. The psychological effect of running faster results in an increase in confidence.

Sprint endurance is training the body to sprint repeatedly with little drop off in top speed. It is performed over short distances with short recovery periods. As the performer’s speed improves then it is necessary to improve the sprint endurance to cope with the extra load on the energy sources as a result of running faster.
Change of Direction
Not all sports require this element of training but to the one’s that do, being able to change direction at speed is key to high level performance. It is a combination of fitness components that allow this to take place and that is why it is contained within the Gold package.
Power is the ability to move the body quickly off the mark. It is also the ability to jump upwards and forwards when required and is a necessary requirement in most sports. The key to power training is speed and power is the link between strength and speed.
