Through a composite program of exercises and drills which include running technique drills, sprinting drills, explosive plyometric training, and Olympic lifting, upper and lower resistance exercise training, balance & coordination training, core strengthening, flexibility and range of motion exercises added to speed-specific endurance training.  These exercises and each drill are implemented in a specialized way, at ever increasing levels of complexity as your mastery of the skills becomes realized. Training in this manner is the key to learning from the ground up literally the proper fundamental body movements to ensure that you will be running your fastest when it is most important: when the games begin or the race starts.

The JST program begins with a thorough evaluation which upon completion of the testing and assessment, a customized training program is developed for the specific athlete to ensure that the increased speed goals are attained. 

A typical sports-specific speed enhancement program entails 2-4 sessions of training per week.  Some accelerated programs can involve as many as 5-6 days per week.
