Acceleration Training Weight Sled

Train with the sled engineered specifically for 1st Step Quickness and Acceleration

If you've never trained using a sled, then you are shortchanging your workouts, and as a result, you are limiting your potential.

We don't subscribe to any specific piece of equipment as a be-everything or train-anyone type of item, but the weight sled comes very close. And, if it's acceleration you need, and high quality, Made in the USA, and ON SALE are what you are looking for, then the acceleration training weight sled just might be the perfect fit.

It is such a great item because of its versatility, not only in its uses, but in its portability--you literally can train for speed, strength, quickness, acceleration, conditioning---and you can take it with you and use it at the park, in your backyard, or in your neighbor's yard (if you don't feel like ruining your own grass!).

Never Lose That 1st Step To Your Competition Again

Made In The USA

The low push handles on the Acceleration Sled place the athlete at the correct body angle for leg drive and lean specific to acceleration. Being able to accelerate more rapidly is the key to getting from point A to point B more quickly.

In order for an athlete to change direction quickly (agility), he/she must possess an explosive first step, and additionally, the next few steps must be explosive as well-this can be accomplished by training to produce more force every time the foot touches the ground-the Acceleration Sled trains the athlete to produce an increased force each time the foot touches the ground.

The Acceleration Training Weight Sled works great as a football sled, hockey sled--actually, it works well to use this sled to train for practically any sport that involves movement!

Unlock the secret to a quicker 1st step-Train with the Acceleration Sled!

Athlete and Coach Testimonials:

"Just wanted to write you a quick note to let you know how much your sleds have already done for us here at Hamilton College. We have been using them as one of our GPP exercises. In just the few weeks that we have been using them I have seen amazing gains in their posterior chain strength and mostly their fitness. I am sure that we haven't even tapped what we can do with them but already it has become the exercise they all want to do!! It has already made improvement in their box squat and mostly their explosive strength. The quality is amazing and the price made it possible to get enough of them to be able to use them as a team. Again thanks for the help and the product."

Paul Adey, Strength and Conditioning Coach
Hamilton College

"The acceleration training sleds have helped me tremendously with my speed & power last summer. As a freshman in college, I was the fastest player at my position. Without the grueling sled workouts, that wouldn't have been possible. The sled workouts are hard mentally and physically, but yield great results. I look forward to seeing the results the sled brings this summer."

Chris Jeannot, UNH Football

"Using this sled pushes you to the limit! They are so hard, yet in the end, they help me get so much stronger and my legs are better conditioned for my sport."

Matthew Skoff, AAA U18 Hockey Goalie

"There is no substitute for these sleds! The sled workouts are the most demanding and fulfilling workouts I do."

Bryce Merriam, NAHL Goalie

Christian Hanson"Coach Jeremy Hoy and Finish First is one of if not the main reason I am where I am today. If it were not for his sport-specific training programs, I could only have dreamt of making it this far. Any athlete who has any aspirations of making it to the next level is foolish to not train with Finish First. Regardless of your current skill, going anywhere else to train is a waste of time, money and talent."
--Christian Hanson, NHL Boston Bruins/AHL Providence Bruins
Miss Pennsylvania America 2011, Juliann Sheldon "Training for the Miss America pageant included 6 weeks of intense training at Finish First Sports performance. Coach Jeremy Hoy put my physical endurance to the test and pushed me to my limit. In those intense weeks of physical preparation, I truly learned what It meant to be an athlete. Training at FFSP can help ANY pageant girl become an athlete - She will look and feel her very best. ..."

Where I am now in my career I can credit to Finish First, and I know continuing my training there will get me where I want to be."
--Matt Bartkowski, NHL Boston Bruins/AHL Providence Bruins
Miss Pennsylvania America 2010, Courtney Thomas "Working out at Finish First Sports Performance with Jeremy Hoy was by far the best workout experience I've ever had.

Miss Pennsylvania America 2009, Shannon Doyle "I spent six weeks at Finish First Sports Performance working intensely with Coach Hoy to prepare for the Miss America pageant. I worked out three times a day, every day! Coach Hoy pushed me harder than I ever could have imagined possible. When I felt defeated, he always had an inspirational story or quote to re-inspire me, and then he would push me harder. Jeremy saw an inner-strength and confidence in me even when I struggled to see it in myself. ..."
--Miss Pennsylvania America 2009, Shannon Doyle
Chris Kushneriuk, Professional Hockey Player for the Bakersfield Condors "Prior to training with Jeremy Hoy and the team at Finish First, one of the biggest knocks I received from coaches was my endurance. I would slowly wear down as the season went on, which would make me lose a step in a game where every inch is so important. Since I began my off-season training with Jeremy's programs in the summer of 09' this has no longer been an issue. ...Jeremy has made me a much more explosive and confident power forward. ..."
--Chris Kushneriuk, Professional Hockey Player for the Bakersfield Condors
Brock Meadows, Professional Hockey Player, Texas Brahmas "Jeremy Hoy and Finish First Sports Performance has by far been the best sport-specific training I've ever experienced.

--Brock Meadows, Professional Hockey Player, Texas Brahmas
Elyse Healy, Top 10 Miss PA 2010 "Having competed at the local, state and national levels before coming to Jeremy, I always knew how I wanted to look but never got precisely the results I was striving for.

Combined with expertise in training, nutrition and overall health, I thank Jeremy and his staff for making me both mentally and physically STRONG! ..."
