Rave Reviews for Athletes’ Acceleration!

“Patrick and Latif, you guys are incredible! The improvements that our athletes have made since you began working with them have truly been impressive. The results were immediate, but the continued progress of the athletes involved in your programs over time has really changed the way we look at speed development and athletic development as a whole. I strongly recommend that anyone interested in developing faster athletes take a serious listen to everything you have to say. They will not be disappointed in the results.”

Kevin Murphy
4-Time Massachusetts State Coach of the Year
2006 Coaches Hall of Fame Inductee

“Speed kills. Period. If you want your athletes getting their asses kicked then I highly recommend you stand, pat, and do nothing. But if you’re serious about winning then get your hands on a copy of Complete Speed Training© today. Maybe not all of your competition is researching ways to get faster, but you know full-well at least one team is. And if they get their hands on this information first…well, your kids are going to be in
for a LONG day when they face them. It’s simple: make the investment, get faster, win more.”

“I have always thought of Athletes’ Acceleration’s Performance Staff as teachers instead of as coaches. While working with the staff, there was always an emphasis on understanding the workouts and learning how to become a more efficient runner. I have been able to apply the knowledge I learned from Athletes’ Acceleration to other sports I play as well as track at the collegiate level.”

Kevin Daniels
Hockomock League Champion -100m

“I was fast, but they taught me how to run. Now I know what angle my legs should be, where and how to plant my step. The Athletes’ Acceleration Performnace Staff have it down to a science. I knew that the professional runners run differently, I didn’t know that I could learn it, but that was the kind of coaching that I’m getting.”

John Lancaster

“One of the most important benefits that I have experienced with Complete Speed Training is the phone consults with Latif himself. Latif’s professionalism and knowledge is unmatched. I have asked and had answered questions regarding specific programs, periodizaton, nutrition, timing protocols (hand held v. FAT), running mechanics and weight training. Never has there been a question that has gone unanswered, he has always made himself available. Our conversations and the program has made me a better, more knowledgeable trainer which in turn has made my athletes more athletic. Complete Speed Training will give you the advantage you are looking for…”

“Athletes’ Acceleration’s guidance gave me an edge over my competitors both physically and mentally. In addition to implementing the latest methods in sports training, Athletes’ Acceleration’s Performance Staff motivated me daily and has made me a true student of the sport. After being involved with his program, most of Athletes’ Acceleration’s athletes show a passion for the sport that is unparalleled in other track programs.”

“Well done! I’ve been meaning to write and compliment you ever since you began your series on designing a training plan. The series on planning is, like everything else you do, great stuff. Keep it coming. I look forward to reading more. It’s just so refreshing to read such common sense material written with an emphasis on common terminology. Everything in the newsletter and in the blog is practical and readily understandable for the busy professional who also coaches. And since the Americans seem to be sweeping the Nobel Prizes, what the heck, you’ve just won the Nobel for heads on straight, downright useful sources of information.”

Howard Brandt
Track and Field Coach – Canada

“I am a doctor of physical therapy and a performance enhancement specialist and I truly look forward to reading your blogs each week. It is great to see that there are others out there that perform evidence based programs and have the biology and science to back it up. I see so many coaches and other so called performance trainers that do cookie cutter type speed, agility, quickness type exercises that are not specific to their position or even their sport. Most of the trainers around here just set their athletes up for failure and worst of all injury. I see numerous kids who come into my clinic with overuse injuries or some trainer that has only trained quads and glutes with no respect for the hamstrings, hip strength/stability or even flexibility. Its’ amazing the stories you hear.”

Once again, I commend what you are doing w/ your blogs and the science that you use to back it up. It’s great to see that there are others out there that use biology to provide the results that they are looking for. ”

Kevin Kostka, PT, DPT, PES

“Your Speed Training Newsletter has helped me with training many athletes (kids, adults, collegiates) to become so, so much better athletes.

“I have used your newsletter along with your Speed Training Program Set to help my daughter in her track and field career. Your information has helped me see how many coaches out there in the schools really have no training when it comes to coaching these kids, especially in track and field. I have recently shared this information with my brother-in-law who is a middle school coach (wrestling, football, basketball and track and field) to help improve his kids as well. Great letters with so much information, I learn something from every article!! Keep up the great work!!”

“Wonderful, enlightening information. Recently, I went to a speed and agility class offered by my son’s local sports club. I had just completed studying your complete speed training program and reading several articles in the newsletter. Well, I was speaking with the coach who was so impressed with my knowledge that mid way through the class, I was instructing the kids on mechanics and exercises. I was invited back to lead the class by myself and now I’ve been requested to set up programs for the entire program. Also, several parents have approached me about working with their kids this summer. I guess I now need information on getting certified and how to run a summer camp. Thanks!”

“Last summer i was taking to a student athlete about the about the step over knee action and he did not embrace. About a month ago I shared with his coach via email and two weeks ago I saw him and he was telling me that he was running faster than he’s ever run, because his coach shared with him the step over knee action.”

Jacob Collins

“The info has been great and useful. I have been able to apply it to my own training and also to to the athletes I help train.
