This course is a great introduction to sprint training for Boxing coaches with little or no knowledge of running coaching, however is also a great opportunity for additional learning for existing running coaches, PTs or any other sports coaches that require their athletes to do power and speed work. As a running (rather than athletics) coach, I primarily work in longer distance, non track running, but offer speed training as part of an athletes development. This course provided easy access calculations for assessing performance and ensuring that the athletes are working at the correct level and not overtraining (risking injury) or under training (not pushing enough). Thoroughly recommend the content and also Andy’s easy to follow approach to teaching which will suit all learners whether visual or auditory.
