    “In Ultimate Speed and Agility, Jim Kielbaso has organized, structured, and formatted, one of the finest resources ever put into print on the subject. Jim describes biomechanical, kinesthetic, and anatomical concepts in an easy-to-understand and functionally applicable manner. By combining sound, scientific tenets of physics and movement science with excellent illustrations and very well-written descriptions, Jim has made a significant contribution to the coaching profession with this stellar piece of work. I’ve already applied many of the techniques and teaching cues. My advice: Get a copy of this book and get busy making your athletes faster and more agile!”

    “Ultimate Speed & Agility is an absolute must read for every strength & conditioning coach. This book is the most comprehensive and well written book I have ever read on speed and agility improvement. Jim Kielbaso cuts right to the truth about athletic improvement and the book’s Coaching Tips and illustrations are invaluable. I have made this book a mandatory read for my staff at Elite Athlete Training Systems, Inc.”

    “In my quest to improve my athletes’ speed and agility I have read the works of many authors from the likes of Cook, Boyle, Verstegen and Chek to Zatsiorsky, Chu, Siff, and Yessis. Nowhere have I found such practical and easy to apply information on the fundamental underpinning principles of movement and change of direction. Jim Kielbaso has identified what great players do naturally and created a system that teaches anyone to move like the pros. Regardless of your personal coaching philosophy you can use his “5Fs” methodology to enhance your current training program.”

    • Tom Crick, BSC – Loughborough University, United Kingdom

    “This is the most complete guide to teaching and improving speed and agility that I have found. If you are a coach or an athlete, beginner or elite, Jim Kielbaso’s attention to detail and coaching tips provide a solid foundation for you to improve yourself. I utilize many of Jim’s techniques and drills on a daily basis with my players. This is simply a must have for any athlete or coach who is serious about what they do.”

    “Your book has helped out very much. My son (9 years old) has improved his strength dramatically and he’s gotten the following results:
    20 yard dash time from 4.13 sec to 3.35 sec
    40 yard dash time from 7.41 sec to 6.53 sec
    Vertical Jump from 10.5 inches to 16.25 inches
    This is an excellent book.”
