When it comes to speed and performance, The Science of Speed is a proven system that helps all runners achieve their goals. Originally developed by Tom Tellez, coach of some the greatest track and field athletes of all time, The Science of Speed focuses on physiology, anatomy, kinesiology – the engineering of the human body – and educational psychology.

Now available in book form, as The Science of Speed The Art of the Sprint, The Science of Speed delivers the blueprint for athletes and coaches to deliver consistent results and optimize performance
when it counts the most.

The Science of Speed system builds better athletes – for competition and for life.

Technical Skills

Sports training has become increasingly scientific as athletes and coaches look for a competitive edge. It’s important to apply the scientific principles correctly. For the first time, The Science of Speed presents the information in a way that’s easy to understand and emulate.

Tom Tellez developed some of the greatest track and field performers in the history of the sport, including Carl Lewis, Leroy Burrell,and Joe DeLoach. A true pioneer, Coach Tellez studied kinesiology and the fundamental mechanics of human motion and applied them to running. This system is proven and has stood the test of time because it is scientifically sound.

Focus on the details, then practice each one until you’re doing it right consistently. There aren’t any shortcuts. Be patient and trust the process used by the masters of running.

There’s one way to run your best.

    • Study what matters. Focus on the mechanics of every component.
    • Pay attention to every detail.
    • Practice each element until you can sense when it’s right, then do it right consistently.
    • Practice what’s uncomfortable until it’s natural.

“Speed isn’t about quickness. It’s a function of how much force
is applied to the ground over a given amount of time.”
Tom Tellez

The Mental Edge

Training to your potential is hard because it involves commitment, repetition and change. When you’re moving away from what’s comfortable, you need to have the right goal – the one that’s beyond what’s predictable – and you need to believe that it’s possible. The Science of Speed helps you confirm your goals, remove the barriers ,and shows you a clear path to success.

From there, it’s about doing the work. You have to focus, accept coaching instruction and make big sacrifices, especially if you see the word “champion” in your future. These require concentration, trust, humility and deep-seated motivation. And, just like our nation’s military personnel and top business leaders, athletes at the top of their game know how to perform under pressure and very high levels of stress. That’s because they practice under the conditions that could cause an error.

The mental edge is as important as technical skills. We’ve teamed with world-class performance psychologists to help you strengthen yours.
