Full Description

Make your players faster and stronger

Over the past ten years top soccer players have become faster, stronger and more powerful. We admire players like Henry, Owen, Ronaldo, Ronaldinho and Rooney for the speed and grace with which they take defenders on with the ball at their feet. 

Players like Messi and Scholes may not have the same straight line speed, but they all have the one vital component a world class footballer needs: quickness.

That means quick feet, quick thinking, good co-ordination, good agility, and the ability to rapidly change direction.

How to get explosive speed

Every team wants players with explosive speed and reactions – it can make the difference between winning and losing. The good news is that these skills CAN be coached. Soccer speed is a skill, and just like any other skill, it can be taught, it can be developed and it can be improved through systematic and progressive training.

Turn good players into great players

Average players can be turned into good players, and good players can be turned into great players.

Mike Antoniades is a specialist coach for speed, power and rehabilitation and a qualified A licence UEFA coach, running his own consultancy in London.

His unique speed training methodology has been tried, tested and proven at all levels, from youth to professional clubs. In tests that were done with junior and professional footballers, improvements were shown in: 

  • Quickness – in the first three steps (5 metres) players improved by 0.2 – 0.3 of a second (up to 25%).
  • Acceleration – the improvement here was between 0.4 and 0.89 of a second over 40 metres (up to 20%).
  • Turning ability – players were up to 0.5 of a second faster (up to 50%).

Now, for the first time, Mike's methods are available on a great value DVD that you can watch in your own home. Feel The Speed will guide you, step-by-step, through more than 20 clearly explained drills, including:
