THE WENTZ SPEED ACADEMY - High School Level
Kevin Wentz launched the The Wentz Speed Academy at Fitsport Kinetics to focus on scientifically-based training that's all about SPEED. His more than 25 years of experience as co-founder of CATZ Physical Therapy & Sports Performance, and his life long passion for the science behind speed led him to develop a speed school for high-school aged athletes. Using the principles of velocity-based training, Kevin and his team are dedicated to making athletes faster and providing measurable results. Whether you are a football player trying to lower your 40 time, a track sprinter wanting to set a new personal record, or a soccer player needing to boost your overall speed, the Wentz Speed Academy is training for athletes of all sports!

OLYMPIC WEIGHTLIFTING INSTRUCTION AGES 13+
Learn proper olympic-style weight lifting techniques for safer and more effective results. Instruction includes squats, deadlifts and cleans in small groups of four athletes. All classes are outdoors and all equipment is disinfected after each use. In comparison with other strength sports, which test limit strength (with or without lifting aids), weightlifting tests aspects of human ballistic limits (explosive strength); the lifts are therefore executed faster—and with more mobility and a greater range of motion during their execution—than other strength movements.
Tues. & Thurs. 3:30 - 4:30
Saturdays 8:00 - 9:00 AM
PLAYMAKER ELITE HIIT, Plyometrics & Agility (8-12 years)
High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), plyometrics, and agility, in fast-paced, ever-changing, 45-minute open air classes. Develop and improve the core skills needed to take your game to the next level.

SPEED STARTER AGES 8-12 years
Young athletes who have mastered the skills of the Playmaker Elite classes may be interested in advancing their performance with our Speed Starter program. Speed Starter classes are the perfect preparation for advanced techniques and training in the Wentz Speed Academy, or other speed schools. Students learn the fundamentals of developing speed, regardless of their sport. Ask the experts, starting speed training at an early age is highly beneficial for the safe and effective development of elite speed.

MUAY THAI CROSS TRAINING Jr. Class 8-12, Teen Class 13+
The benefits of cross training include superior overall conditioning (using all muscle combinations not just specific muscle groups), and reducing exercise boredom. Muay Thai training specifically enhances stamina and cardiovascular strength, hip mobility, hand, arm and leg speed, as well as overall power and self-discipline. Most of all, it's just fun to hit and kick stuff! Heavy bags and practice dummies are used for distancing.
Tues.& Thurs., 3:30 - Juniors 8-12
Tues. & Thurs., 4:30 - Teens 13+
FOOTBALL AGES 10-17 years
FitSport's football specific training picks up where your summer camps left off. Regardless of your position, our coaches are experienced and ready to help you take your game to the next level. Participants work on all aspects of sound conditioning, agility, position-specific drills, discipline and preparation for game action that gets faster and more powerful.
