Can I use a S.P.E class for a F.A.S.T School class?

If you purchased the 3 month membership option, yes. If you purchased the month-to-month program, no.

During a trial session we want you to get the real deal! So you’ll experience an actual training session to get a feel for how the program works. 

Once you purchase a package, the first session will be an assessment so we have our baseline for where you’re at and can develop a program custom to your individual needs.

The Basic F.A.S.T. School begins with the CPP Speed Profile and then three subsequent sessions to learn the basics of running mechanics, lateral movement, and multi-directional movement. After completing the Basic F.A.S.T. School, you automatically move on to the Advanced F.A.S.T. School where you’ll continue learning advanced techniques for maximal speed development. These advanced techniques include things such as progression to reaction, game speed, plyometrics, advanced resistance training, functional resistance training.
