  • Pony Speed Training

    Stillwater Area High School is proud to announce that the Acceleration Minnesota speed treadmill program has been installed on campus! Acceleration Minnesota has been the premier speed program in the Twin Cities since 1990. Acceleration is a science based and result driven speed program that uses high speed incline treadmills to teach proper running technique, correct running form, stride length, and stride frequency. These treadmills incline up to 40% grade and can reach speeds of 28 mph. This program will run in 6-8 week intervals and allow students and/or adults to schedule 1 to 2 workouts per week. Also, by installing this on campus, we can charge less than the Acceleration facilities located in Arden Hills and Hudson, WI. Student athletes ages 10 yrs old and up are eligible to sign up for the Pony Speed Program.The treadmill science: Athletes sprint in front of mirrors to see and correct running stride flaws. The inclines used correct foot strike and get athletes to run on the ball of the foot instead of the heel. Running at an incline activates the glutes and hamstrings 200% more than flat ground running and promotes higher knee drive thus increasing stride length. The speeds used, force athletes to sprint at 100% effort and more. During the latter part of the workout there are 2-3 second periods where the athlete is getting held on the treadmill by the trainer. This all leads to longer strides and a faster runner.Group Training: Teams that want to schedule training groups outside of the listed dates and times, should contact Jodi Loeblein-Lecker to discuss customizing a program that would work with your team or organization. Payment Plans: Payment may be broken down into 2 or 3 payment plans. All payments must be made prior to the training session beginning. A payment plan must be agreed upon by Community Education and the family with a signed contract. Dates: June 10 - July 24, 2019 Days: Mondays and Wednesdays, No class July 1 and 3Make Up Dates:  Week of July 29 -  Make up dates are used when a session is missed during the week.
