Can Speed Really Be Improved?
While it is true that some players are born
advantages over others, most run at speeds well below their genetic
ceiling. It's important to understand that running fast is
purely physical. By incorporating proper mental habits,
training program, an understanding of the
type of run that you are doing, and proper sprinting
for baseball can be improved greatly (and often noticed in the first
training session)! However, similiar to improving at other baseball skills such as hitting, improving your speed requires very hard work. Incorporating new habits into your running form and base stealing start may not be extremely physically demanding, but it does require a constant attention to detail. Only committed athletes should continue reading...

son and I were traveling four hours into Chicago for a

was basically ignored.
After performing all day at the camp we met with Thurman.

Thurman then spent
two hours with my son sharing 60 yard dash secrets, working on his
baseball start, and improving his overall running mechanics.
not lying when I tell you that he ran 7.55 by the end of that

about a month, he asked the track coach to re-time him in the 60.

|Disclaimer: The above testimonial is NOT typical. The main thing this player was doing incorrectly was that he wasn't running straight (thus adding distance to his run). By getting him to simply focus on a target straight ahead we were able to improve his time very quickly. All athletes are different, but with hard work, typical expected results are usually up to around 0.30. Please read the full disclaimer here.

|"My Speed Went
from Being a Liability,
to Being Average, to Being a Tool!"
have heard people say that speed is something that you're either born
with or without. Well, I am proof that speed can be taught and
enhanced. About ten years ago when I was in high school,

heard the same remarks from everyone. He is a good player,
he's too slow. He has the other tools, but he can't run.
was not going to let these people tell me I could not achieve my goals
because I was too slow. So, I accepted a scholarship to a
Division II school. After my freshman year in college, I
to train with Thurman. The first day we worked he tested me
the 60-yard-dash. The results were what everyone was telling
7.25 seconds, too slow for a middle infielder in professional baseball,
even too slow for Division I.
training with Thurman for a summer, I saw my 60 yard dash time drop
from 7.2 to 6.9 seconds. I was then able to transfer to a
Division I university because I now had adequate speed. I
continued to train with Thurman after each of my next two college
seasons and we kept on
seeing improvement... 6.85, 6.8, and finally 6.75 seconds (my personal
best). My speed went from being a liability, to
being average, to being a tool!
June 2003, I was selected by the Florida Marlins in the 12th round of
the Major League Baseball draft. Although I did not make the
Major Leagues, I achieved more than what anyone expected of me.
personally believe that I would not have had the opportunity to play
Division I or professional baseball if it was not for the help and
guidance of Thurman Hendrix. Thanks Thurm!"

will use this test to weed players out. In other words, if

|Bobby Ran a 6.5
Sec 60 (At An Invite Only Showcase)
On a Day When Only One Other Player Broke 7.0!
am one of those guys lucky enough to have been born with pretty good
speed. However, I realized at an early age that I wanted my
running ability to be something that scouts would notice
immediately. Without doing any training, I would guess that
capable of running about a 6.8 second, 60 yard dash. Good
to be considered fast, but not off-the-charts special.
I decided to
start training with Thurman Hendrix with the hopes of taking my speed
to the next level. It obviously worked because I ran a 6.5
60 at an invitational only baseball showcase on a day in which only one
other player was able to break 7.0 seconds.
The one thing that I
have learned about the 60 yard dash is that there are a lot of
variables. The wind, running surface, timing mechanism, etc.
all things that can greatly affect your time. Thurman has
me that what is really important is how my time compares to other
players that get tested on the same day, and under the same
is good, but to run it on a day when only one other player broke 7.0
(at an invite only camp with the best players in the state)
vaulted my status among the 30+ scouts in attendance!"
Obviously, Bobby was fast to begin with, but what his testimonial kind of blows over is how hard he (mentally) worked to get the 0.30 improvement that he talks about. He tediously studied how to manipulate all the variables of a particular 60 yard dash test so that they worked with him and not against him. Please read the full disclaimer here.
