Benefits of Blaze Speed and Strength
Exercise consistency is key! If athletes expect to become stronger, faster, and more powerful they need to become dedicated. Blaze is offering two 3-week sessions to accomplish our athletes’ goals. If athletes can dedicate 6 weeks to bettering their athleticism, we encourage them to do so.
- Pre-testing will be performed during the first week
- Post-testing will be done during the last week
This will allow athletes to see their progress throughout the summer

The Blaze Speed & Strength Program for Athletes Features these 6 Key Components:
Dynamic Warm-up: Did you know a dynamic warm-up helps increase blood flow to the muscles, increases functional mobility, and increases flexibility? Blaze believes in utilizing a dynamic warm-up for those reasons as well as to help prevent injury and improve performance in our athletes! The warm-up will include numerous “moving” exercises to prepare the body for activity.
Balance: “Proprioceptive” or balance training is an integral part when looking to prevent injuries and improve mobility. Each class will incorporate balance training exercises, with or without the use of equipment, to help stabilize and prepare our bodies for athletic activity/sport.
Speed: Speed training puts our muscles through a fuller range of motion, which then improves flexibility. Speed also trains more of our muscles, which leads to better balance and reduction of injury risk. Speed training exercises will be done outside, weather permitted, with and without equipment.
Power: Power is simply the combination of speed and strength. Power training involves explosive movements such as squat jumps, tuck jumps, skaters, and box jumps. With these power movements, our athletes will strengthen their bones and muscles, increase their reaction time, and increase their energy.
Agility: Agility is your body’s ability to be quick, graceful, and nimble. It is how effectively and efficiently you can move, change direction, and maintain control of your body position. Benefits? Easy. Prevents injuries, improves the mind-body connection, improves balance and coordination, and improves recovery time.
Strength Training: Strength training, also known as resistance training, involves exercises that are designed to improve muscle mass, strength and endurance. At Blaze, injury prevention is one of our biggest goals, so we will make sure form is done correctly before we add more weight or resistances.
