SPEED Training is designed to build a base for training with a focus on proper technique to develop strength and power, while the FAST program is specifically designed to focus on balance, coordination and mobility to enhance agility and speed. Both programs are offered through Adirondack Health’s Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine Department.
