Ep140 - Lee Taft...The Speed Guy!

Coach Lee Taft joins me on today’s show to have a great discussion about speed and agility training, athletic development and retention, and health and longevity. In this outstanding episode, the Speed Guy covers:

  • How Lee moved through the journey of being a coach and physical education teacher to becoming a world-renowned consultant in the field.
  • Why speed, agility, and reaction are the quintessential characteristics of the best athletes.
  • Why we need to do a better job of enhancing physical literacy and competency in our youth, and retaining those traits in our adult population.
  • What are some practical ways to incorporate speed and agility training into programming at any age level, and the potential benefits.
  • How Lee trains and stays athletic in his mid-50’s, including recommendations for program design and home gym setup.
