Lee Taft, known to most simply as “The Speed Guy”, is regarded as one of the top athletic movement specialist in the world. Over the past 25 years Lee has devoted the majority of his time training multi-directional speed to all ages and ability. He has been the ‘go to’ speed training expert for everyone from NFL organizations and Wimbledon champions to up and coming youth athletes.
He’s a sought after presenter, sharing multi-directional speed methods at Perform Better events, the NFL Combine Seminar, the NBA Strength & Conditioning Coaches Workshop and hundreds of other events.
Since 1989, Lee has taught foundation movement to beginning youngsters and helped young amateur athletes to professional athletes become quicker, faster and stronger. Lee’s entire philosophy is based off one of his most notable quote, “Learning athletic movement correctly from the start is the foundation for athletic success.”
With the release of Ground Breaking Athletic Movement in 2003, Lee revolutionized the fitness industry with his movement techniques for multi-directional speed. His innovated approach to training has impacted how athletic movement speed is taught. Lee brought to light the importance and fine points of the “Plyo Step”, “Hip Turn”, “Directional Crossover Step” and athletic stance. According to Lee, “Speed and agility done right is about making sure we marry the natural movements athletes have with effective and efficient body control to maximize speed and quickness”.
Lee has been asked to speak at numerous strength and conditioning and sports performance events across the world and has produced 13 instructional videos in the area of multi-directional speed and movement training. In addition, Lee has written several eBooks specifically on movement techniques and speed development. Lee and his wife Jennifer have 3 children, Jae, Bailee and Brennen and currently reside in Indiana.
But above all else, Lee is a teacher and coach and his in-the-trenches, proven protocols for developing faster athletes, made specifically for coaches are game changers and will finally give you the speed development system you need.
