Speed Academy session 1
Around the Academy:

This is the first session of our exclusive Speed Academy.

Our coach Mike Antoniades will have you sprinting as quick as Michael Owen or Jason Robinson in no time!


Mike has devised a simple programme which will feature on the Academy over the next few months.

Mike Antoniades
Mike is a speed demon

By the end of it you should notice a significant increase in your speed.

Research has shown that this eight-step programme will improve your speed and agility.

So follow Mike's training schedule and you could be turning defences inside out like Owen every week.

Good luck!
