Murray Hicks, athletic performance director at Desert Speed School, has announced a new training program, hardcore conditioning, that helps athletes increase aerobic conditioning while developing balance and coordination. Through high intensity interval training and the use of the ultimate pillar training exercises, athletes develop a strong core required for stabilizing the torso and maintaining perfect mechanics.
“We are excited about offering this new program,” said Hicks. “I look forward to watching athletes excel through the development of balance and coordination.”
