Power & Speed Development


Speed and power are interrelated. In it’s own unique way, more power generates more speed and more speed means you are free to manipulate your own speed. Ever thought of improving that accelerative speed to gain an advantage over your opponent? Well the Speed and Power workshop is just the right thing for you.  Great for those people who partake in sport.
