The only place where 'success' comes before 'work' is in the dictionary - Vince Lombardi


TopSpeed Strength & Conditioning is a private sports performance training facility located at 13932 West 108th Street in Lenexa, KS. It is the only official Nike SPARQ Certified facility in Kansas or Missouri. The facility is not your typical gym, there are no machines, no televisions, and no cozy conditions. Its' arrangement is designed purely to help individuals significantly improve their athletic ability and fitness levels. Workouts are hard, designed to push individuals to and beyond their preconceived limits. 

The facility is under the direction of former Kansas City Royals Strength and Conditioning Coach Joseph Potts who is widely regarded as one of the top sports performance training coaches in America. He has trained athletes for the NFL, MLB, Professional Basketball, Professional Soccer, the Olympic Games and college athletics.

The methods used at TopSpeed provide a level of performance training that was once only available to professional and division-I college athletes. Services include Sports Performance Training (speed, power, strength and agility coaching), NFL Combine/Pro Day Preparation, Pitcher/QB Arm Care Programs, College Recruiting Assistance & much more. Also, thanks to a sponsorship agreement with OhYeah! Nutrition, the TopSpeed facility operates in the same manner as a professional sports teams' weight room  whereby athletes are provided protein shakes, powder, and bars, free of charge.

Take a sneak peak at the results of the TopSpeed training methods by checking out this video of the NFL Combine performance of TopSpeed program alumni Christian Ballard. At 6'4" and 286 pounds Christian ran the fastest Forty Yard Dash amongst all interior defensive lineman and was selected by the Minnesota Vikings with their 3rd overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft.

Keyon Haughton, who did his NFL Pro Day preparation at TopSpeed, showed off his impressive explosive ability for a 6'3"/306 pound athlete by putting up numbers that would place him #1 in both vertical and broad jump compared to center's who were invited to the 2016 NFL Combine.

We want to congratulate Riley Pint, who has trained with Coach Potts at TopSpeed since his freshman year of high school, on becoming the #1 baseball prospect in the nation for the class of 2016 (according to Perfect Game USA) and for committing to play college baseball for the LSU Tigers. Riley also achieved a milestone of sorts this past summer as his fastball reached speeds up to 100 mph during the 2015 Area Code Games in August.
