At Personal Edge Fitness athlete training refers to the process of preparing athletes physically, mentally, and emotionally for their specific sports or athletic events. It involves a combination of physical conditioning, skill development, and psychological preparation to help athletes achieve their full potential.
Athlete specific training typically begins with a baseline assessment of the athlete’s physical abilities, including their strength, endurance, agility, speed, and flexibility. Based on the assessment, a customized training program is developed that includes exercises, drills, and activities aimed at improving the athlete’s weaknesses and enhancing their strengths.
The targeted training program may supplement sports-specific skill training, such as practicing techniques for throwing, catching, hitting, or shooting from their sports coach or other trainers. Additionally, the program may include mental skills training, such as visualization, goal setting, and relaxation techniques to help athletes stay focused and perform under pressure.

Speed training is a form of athlete training that specifically focuses on improving an athlete’s speed and explosiveness. It involves a combination of exercises, drills, and techniques designed to increase an athlete’s stride length, stride frequency, and reaction time.
The specific exercises and drills used in speed training can vary depending on the sport and position of the athlete. For example, sprinters may focus on exercises that develop explosive power in their legs, such as plyometrics or resistance training. Football players may focus on exercises that improve their acceleration and change of direction, such as agility drills or cone drills. Whether it is increasing your strength, explosive power, flexibility, speed, or agility at Personal Edge Fitness in Mobile, AL and Daphne, AL, we take into consideration all the movements of your sport and utilize training techniques that mimic those movements.
That extra boost or half-second of speed is the difference that separates the elite level of athletes from all the rest. There are a multitude of components that dictate an individual’s overall speed rating. Each component requires a different type of training to achieve optimal speed gain for an athlete’s sport.
Some common techniques used in speed training include interval training, where the athlete alternates between periods of high-intensity running and rest, and sprint training, where the athlete focuses on running at maximal speed for short distances.
The benefits of training in a personal fitness center like Personal Edge Fitness are numerous.
