Speed and Agility Training

Speed and agility training with TRX can help you develop explosive power and athleticism for any sport or fitness goal. Training to develop speed and agility also provides a great way to mix up your regular workouts with some fun, metabolically challenging exercises. This page serves as a destination for information on speed and agility training with TRX.

What are Speed and Agility
The term “speed” refers to how quickly you can move, measured by how much time it takes to travel a specific distance. The more distance you can cover in a given period of time, the greater your ability to generate speed. “Agility,” refers to the ability to start, accelerate, stop or change direction quickly. Agility provides the foundation for many athletic skills like jumping, juking, rolling and dribbling.

Why Speed and Agility Training is Important:  
For those who play sports like basketball, tennis or soccer, speed and agility training provides the baseline athleticism necessary to refine their sport-specific skills. But speed and agility training is not exclusively for sport-specific athletes. People of all fitness levels can develop their functional strength, increase core stability and improve the way they move with speed and agility training.

Why You Should Incorporate TRX in your Speed and Agility Training:
TRX Training creates unique, proprioceptive challenges that reinforce muscle firing sequences and motor patterns that transfer directly into movements commonly found in sport and life. This style of training demands coordinated and integrated body movement to develop speed and agility.
