In ultimate, people like to say, “You can’t teach tall.” Lots of players also believe you can’t teach speed.
This book is out to dispel that myth. Speed is a skill. You CAN learn to run faster. And to run faster means more scores, more Ds, and more glory on the field.
Dunte Hector of ATX Speed has coached over 100 ultimate players around the world to run faster, jump higher, and minimize common injuries since 2015. He has dozens of pages of data which show:
* most players have improved their short and long sprints by MORE than 10%
* ALL players have fewer missed practices because of his injury prevention & rehab protocols

*** What ultimate players say about training at ATX SPEED ***
“Beach Nationals was the best I’ve ever felt and played on sand, so I was totally prepared for the tournament in that regard. I had many compliments on how well I played and how EASY it looked for me to play in the sand. At our most recent grass tournament, I received a lot of comments on my speed and cutting, which is what I’ve primarily been working on.” – Chris
“I’m faster and have way more endurance than I ever did before. I’m keeping up with and beating people that used to smoke me. People I’ve played for a while have been impressed with how much faster I am.” – Kevin
“I think the long warmups and recovery work during the season are doing a lot to keep me healthy. After a recent tournament, some teammates said, ‘I haven’t seen you play like that before!’ ” – Kyle
“Coach Dunte taught me proper sprinting form, helping me get open on my defenders and stay with my person on defense. He has also helped me understand that training for ultimate isn’t about feeling terrible after workouts, but rather focusing on correct form, doing reps at 100%, and listening to my body.” – Rebecca
“During tryout season all the captains and people running tryouts said I looked way quicker and more explosive than last season.” – Tom
