Athletic training this weekend

Lee Taft, known as “The Speed Guy,” will visit Fairfield County for the Moore Speed and Athletic Development Clinic hosted by Moore Physical Therapy & Fitness, 37 Danbury Road, Wilton, the weekend of Sept. 22-23.
Partial proceeds from the event go to the Fairfield County Sports Commission’s Chelsea Cohen Fitness Academy, a countywide, collaborative effort to bring awareness and educational focus to the importance of underserved youth having access to an active and healthy lifestyle.
From 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 22, Taft will share his systems for training athletes with strength coaches, sports coaches, athletic trainers and physical therapists.
A hands-on interactive clinic for young athletes, strength coaches and trainers will be held Sunday, Sept. 23, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

“When it comes to speed training Lee’s breakthrough multidirectional speed and agility program, ‘Ground Breaking Athletic Movement’ has revolutionized success for all field and court sport athletes,” Jonathan Hudak, one of Moore Physical Therapy and Fitness’s strength and performance coaches, said in a press release.
“This is a great opportunity for young athletes, sports coaches and physical therapy professionals to learn from the best multi-directional speed coach in the business.”
Among those who have worked with Taft is Jimmer Fredette of the NBA’s Sacramento Kings and 2011 NCAA Division 1 National Player of the year, who started working with him at age 5.
“In today’s culture of win-at-all-cost youth athletics, everyone involved in youth sports could learn by simply watching Lee’s interaction with a group of kids — his focus on creating a solid foundation of varied movement skills, as well as an environment of trust, gives them the confidence and will to train harder as they get older,” said Hudak, who has known Taft for 20 years.
“True success is when they grow up to be fit and healthy as adults because of what they were exposed to as a kid.”
Moore Physical Therapy & Fitness has a center at 3530 Post Road, Suite 202.
“This is an outstanding professional education opportunity for people to learn about having a training philosophy versus just administering a series of drills that create fatigue and give the illusion of a good workout,” said Bob Moore, CEO and founder of Moore PT.
“This weekend workshop will help to bridge the gap between therapy, general fitness techniques and athletic development.”
