For further training in speed, agility and quickness, they have turned to the National Exercise & Sports Trainers Association (NESTA)’s Speed Agility and Quickness Specialist online training, which is now available to everyone at http://nestacertified.com/speed-agility-quickness.html
The Speed Agility and Quickness program is designed for fitness professionals interested in expanding their careers as well as athletes looking to improve performance, including trainers and coaches who work with athletes in sports such as basketball, volleyball, football, soccer, track and field and martial arts. The online program teaches participants how to create comprehensive speed agility and quickness programs with little or no equipment while using advanced training tools.
“Whether it is a sporting event or a life-or-death situation, speed, agility and quickness can make all the difference in the world,” said Dr. John Spencer Ellis, founder of NESTA and creator of the Speed Agility and Quickness Specialist certification program. “This special online certification offers a self-paced opportunity to learn more about the latest techniques in these fields as well as the business practices that can help you become a successful speed, agility and quickness coach.”
The program includes a comprehensive manual which covers program design, exercise science, safety and injury prevention, stretching and warm-ups, special populations, endurance training, speed training and more as well as two instructional videos: Sports Warm-Ups and Stretching and Lower Body and Upper Body Drills. When they are ready, participants take an online exam.
While a personal training background is recommended for the Speed Agility and Quickness online training, the only prerequisite is basic knowledge of human anatomy.
