Cross Country Development Programs

Cross Country Development Programs At Get Fast Sports Performance

Yet another hill lies ahead on a challenging cross country course. Calf muscles tighten, and the lungs begin to burn. Legs keep pumping, however, and the mind stays strong.

Cross country runners have an uncanny ability to keep moving regardless of what the trail demands. After all, there is no shortcut to being the best in the long run. We understand all of that at Get Fast sports performance training centers, where we have been perfecting the development of cross country runners since 1993.

Using specialized strength, speed and endurance equipment, plus analytical movement assessments and mental tenacity training, we pretest cross country competitors into our system and are able to post-test them out with significant strength, endurance and speed gains. Athletes exit our cross country training programs able to begin their seasons at absolute peak performance levels. With significantly boosted athletic abilities, these athletes also have a reduced risk of suffering an injury.

With locations in St. Charles and Willowbrook, we welcome athletes from throughout the Chicago area who strive to improve their performance potential. Whether your child is in middle school or you are looking for high school cross country training, the professionals at Get Fast have the expertise to take every runner to the next level. In fact, we train athletes starting at age 7 and throughout college.

The Path to Success

Get Fast’s goal is to help you get the most from your cross country training efforts. Our specialized equipment and facilities include:

• High-speed treadmills that are used in both forward and reverse capacities. This elicits the highest possible level of neuromuscular responses related to recruiting fast and endurance-type muscle fiber. In these ideal conditions, sport-specific energy systems are developed at aggressively higher levels of performance than any other training can provide.
• 24,000 square feet of field turf, weight rooms, straight track and agility training areas. Specifically for cross country development, this means we can focus on energy systems related to endurance, hill-climbing dominance and closing speed — for a kick that lets runners reach the chute before competitors.

Our tested, proven and guaranteed protocols focus both on overall health and the performance of the cross country competitor. We develop a terrain-dominating endurance runner capable of significantly reducing his or her time with each competition. Our training breeds confidence that is unshakable. On a trail or on a track, runners whom we have trained will find that getting a second wind is a breeze.

Get Fast has a proven history of training hundreds of athletes with unprecedented levels of success. Start today and TURN YOUR BODY INTO A WEAPON.
