We’ve heard three major concerns from our readers about the
impending release of The Speed Training Report. This update will
address the #1 concern…
CONCERN: Is this going to be real information from coaches who
really know what they are doing or just a series of diguised sales
pitches for products and programs that you want to sell?
BACKGROUND: A couple of months ago we let it slip to our readers
that we’re getting ready to launch a speed training
resource that covers every componant of athletic development; from
sport specific training articles and programs, strength training,
linear and lateral speed development, youth training, sports
psychology, mechanics, the list goes on and on.
That announcement set off a bit of a frenzy of emails from our
readers. The funny thing is, the biggest concern is not what
People really enjoy receiving the Complete Speed Training
Newsletter, our regular free athletic development resource. But
our readers told us they were worried this new subscription
based resource would just be a marketing ploy to sell advertising
and sell programs. Instead of giving cutting edge training
advice from top experts, we’d be selling
fluff and wasting everyone’s time and money.
To tell you the truth, I was a little taken aback at these
comments. Countless thousands of people have benefitted from
the information I give away weekly, for free. And our other
‘paid’ products are jam packed with information that have,
in some instances, literally changed peoples’ lives.
To think that we would come out with anything less than a rock
solid training and coaching resource caught both Patrick and
I off guard, so we had to really sit and think about how we
would introduce the information and the experts.
As you may remember from when we first announced this project,
we’ve been working on cultivating this resource for almost a
year. So even though the comments threw us off, we wanted to
make sure we felt we were over delivering on the content.
And I promise you that if The Speed Training Report truly is
captain of the ‘varsity’ team then the Complete Speed Training
Newsletter is a ‘freshman’ in comparison.
Just think of it like this, I write the Complete Speed Training
Newsletter each week. While the articles and Q&A are informative,
it’s tough to come up with great new info each week.
So while Patrick and I will contribute heavily to The Speed
Training Report, our articles and answers will come out monthly,
giving us a ton of time to really give thought out, well
researched answers and content.
Now think about what you’ll learn from the coaches and experts
that Patrick and I go to when WE have questions!
It’s truly world class info.
SOLUTION: So given that background, we’ve decided to take a
somewhat unorthodox approach. To get you hooked on The Speed
Training Report from the outset, we’re going to give you a
drastic discount on the regular price AND give away a bonus
60 minute sled training DVD and ebook…at least initially.
Since taking action is the spark that ignites success in any
and all endeavours, we’re only going to give the discount and
bonuses away to a limited number of people. Either the first
100 people who sign up or for the first 24 hours of the launch.
We haven’t decided yet, but you can be sure that if you don’t
act, we WILL start taking product away.
What I personally believe (and hope) is that these incentives
will just be gravy for serious and active readers.
I think once you see the line up of coaches we have joining
Patrick and I, you’ll be sitting anxiously at
your computer waiting for the launch to start to ensure you
get subscribed as soon as humanly possible.
You already know the level of knowledge and quality of content
that you get with Athletes’ Acceleration products, programs and
newsletters. But if you need a reminder of who we are, you can
