HHT Approach to SPRINTING
Jon Gilmer, has been Coach Holmes’ sprint mentor for the past 12 years and is the Sprint Consultant who handles a majority of the sprint portion of the HHT program. Coach Gilmer’s sprint philosophy is simple, eloquent & to the point, "TECHnique is the vehicle through which SPEED flows.”
“I teach, ingraining proper sprint mechanics through neuro-muscular development; teaching athletes to fire muscles in a sequential pattern, facilitating a more efficient and faster run.”
Coach Gilmer’s sprint & agility instruction not only applies to track and field, but to all speed & agility based sports, including Soccer, Football, Baseball, Volleyball and Tennis.
As a Coach / Teacher, Gilmer believes sprinting & agility ARE skills which can be taught. If an athlete is able to perform the movements of sprint & agility TECHnique correctly, speed will come.
