It is too expensive; I am not sure if I will get full value out of it
We understand your concern and we want to help you. We have built three packages that range greatly in price, beginning with the Specialized Program, to make sure you have an offering that is best fit for you. The true market value of the Personalized Training Program for world class training with complete functional assessments, customized training, activation, tracking, injury prevention, peaking cycles is approximately $560 USD monthly. Getting that kind of support and customization is too expensive. That is expensive and almost 4X higher than the annual personalized program offering at $149 USD monthly. RECAST Speed Skating believes in making high-quality and speed skating specific training more accessible to all athletes and coaches to help with overall development of the sport. There currently is limited access to experts and knowledge in speed skating, and RECAST Speed Skating is here to provide solutions to this problem.
Doing strength and conditioning training is essential to helping your performance. What makes the biggest difference is how that work transfers onto ice. What we have at RECAST Speed Skating, is unique because we have a technical skating background and a deep understanding of how the body needs to move in order to skate. We have also been through all the stages of development personally and we understand how to deliver long term development. Our programming is speed skating specific. We have science-based knowledge on the biomechanics of speed skating. We understand what movements you need to be strong in, in order to have the skating position and technical execution on the ice that you need. Other strength and conditioning programs are not able to offer you sport specific feedback, and extended support to help you transfer all that work onto the ice.
