Agility & Speed

For individuals who are passionate about sports, health or regularly participate in physical activity, agility and speed are necessary. Oftentimes, these individuals depend on these abilities to increase their overall performance. Quickly and gracefully, both mental and physical skills are often a key element towards overcoming challenges related to the individual’s specific sport.

Essentially, the main goal of improving agility is to minimize the loss of speed when redirecting the body’s center of gravity. Rapid change drills that switch directions forward, backward, vertically, and laterally will help improve an individual’s agility and flexibility by training your body to make these changes in moving more quickly.

Dr. Alex Jimenez and his Health Coache describe various stretches and exercises utilized to enhance agility and speed throughout his collection of articles, focusing largely on the benefits of fitness and occasional injuries or conditions resulting from overexertion.
