Tom Tellez Book (1)



As you know for this ALTIS Connect we are being joined by one of the greatest sprint coaches of all time - Coach Tom Tellez.

Coach Tellez has recently published his book, 'The Science of Speed The Art of the Sprint' and has been generous enough give us 10 signed books to giveaway to 10 ALTIS Connect attendees!


Our virtual roundtables serve to discuss interesting, important and current topics. In this clip, host Andreas Behm, and the guest panel of coaches Kebba Tolbert, Ron Grigg, Francesca Green and JJ Hunter discuss removing elements from a training program. We give so much thought to what we can add to the program, but what are the considerations for streamlining and making practice more efficient? The panelists weigh in with their ideas.


All program participants will receive lifetime access to recordings of the presentations and discussions after the event is over.

This is an excerpt from a practical session with ALTIS Head Coach Dan Pfaff, exploring upright sprinting technique.

In this clip, Coach Dan analyzes 110m World Record Holder, Aries Merritt, from a frontal view.  Key concepts, positions and movements Dan touches on include: foot strike, max knee height, leg swing, arm block, and asymmetries.
