Running Mechanics = Key to Speed - Part 1

Every day in my line of work we work with kids to help them improve their speed. Speed is a big deal and believe it or not I've got clients as young as 5 yrs old. Parents want speed, coaches want speed, and teams need speed! Speed is everything but understand that speed can be taught. Today you will discover the 4 key strategies to improve linear speed.
