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 and 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 gym is under the direction of former Kansas City Royals Strength and Conditioning Coach Joseph Potts who is widely regarded as the top sports performance training coach in the Kansas City area. He has trained athletes for the NFL, MLB, Professional Basketball, Professional Soccer, the Olympic Games and Division-I 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.
