What People Are Saying:
This program is an excellent way to train your body to adapt to an intense level of movement every day. I have found these short but intense, near-daily exercises much more effective in preparing my body for explosivity and endurance on the field than lengthy weekly sprint sessions. My body and mind have both become accustomed to being pushed every day, which gives me an immediate mental leg-up on my opponents on the field.
The 6 week program has opened my eyes to how different types of fitness training should be used for different sports. I used to think I was the fittest guy on our team, and I was. Now I am also the fastest and can turn quicker and jump from a more balanced position than anyone else I play with. I feel like the recovery between 80 - 20s has gotten a lot faster Too! I love it and can't wait to do the full Program!
I was skeptical of the programme at first: Galloping? How was that going to help my ultimate? A couple of teenagers laughed at me as I did my first warm up at the park near my house: "Why you running backwards? You supposed to run forwards!" But within just a week or two, I felt faster, stronger and more agile at practice. I learned a lot from Melissa's tips emails about how to train *for ultimate* and not just for general fitness (which had always been my approach in the past, limiting my game). I'd known for a while I needed to make that change to really improve, but what Melissa's programme gave me was the "HOW" - the daily road map - as well as the "WHY" - the science behind it.
