A Chat with Strength & Speed Institute
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
The Strength & Speed Institute is South Florida’s premier sports performance-enhancement facility. Athletes will learn the fundamentals of speed, strength, and agility, adding various forms of resistance to speed and strength training to maximize speed and strength potential.
What’s one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans?
Work the muscle, not the motion. Many athletes use weighted balls and bats…to “better enhance” themselves, but it is actually slowing them down and decreasing power output. Train the muscles that are needed to perform the action, and the muscles’ speed, power, and range of motion will increase.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I see many athletes being trained by their coaches or ex players who inaccurately learned how to run faster, be stronger, and perform sports movements, which in turn the athletes will learn inaccurately. athletes need to learn the right way to better themselves for the sport they choose.
What do you love most about your job?
Different athletes, different sizes, different ages, different sports, different injuries, and different ranges of motions all have the same goals: to get individual attention and programming, to better themselves, and to become great at their sports.
