St. Croix Acceleration Program this winter

Hudson athletes,
St Croix Acceleration has been open for 2 years in Hudson, WI. We have had a lot of student athlete’s ages 8yrs old and up complete the program and we want to continue to offer our Speed Treadmill program to complement Raider Elite OR any other strength program athletes may be using. Acceleration uses a high speed treadmill that reaches speeds of 28mph and inclines of 40% grade to improve sprint mechanics and overall speed and power.
Football coach, Adam Kowles, trained on the Acceleration program when he played football at River Falls and is a big believer in the program and what it can do to improve an athlete’s speed. Hudson Boys basketball coach, John Dornfeld, has also completed the program several times and is also a believer in the speed treadmill program.
