• Phoenix, AZ : August 15 – 18



Frans Bosch is a world-class sprints and jumps coach who now works as a performance consultant and in academia with an emphasis in anatomy and motor learning. While his accomplishments are well recognized, one of his greatest contributions to the field is the book Running, Biomechanics and Exercise Physiology Applied in Practice that he co-authored with Ronald Klomp. This is arguably the most comprehensive books ever written on the systems around the development of elite speed.

Athletes’ Performance is honored to bring Frans Bosch to Phoenix, AZ for him to share his ideas around speed development, specific-strength development, and motor behavior. This integrated course will provide theory and practical experience across the range of topics covered. This course is appropriate for anyone interested in speed development and how to optimize learning through the application of motor behavior theories (i.e. Motor Learning).

Don’t miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to see one of the most influential coaches and theorists of our time.

Participants are encouraged to purchase a copy of Bosch’s, “Running: Biomechanics and Exercise Physiology in Practice”, to gain insight into Bosch’s theories prior to the course.

  • – Start technique
  • – Acceleration technique
  • – Absolute speed
  • – Specific-strength development
  • – Motor control theory

Bosch has given numerous presentations on training related topics all over the world and frequently works internationally as a consultant in sport and as conference speaker on training related subjects. Clients in recent years are the English Institute of Sports, Wales National Team Rugby and others.

Together with Ronald Klomp he wrote “Running, biomechanics and exercise physiology applied in practice”, published in the Netherlands in 2001 and translated in English in 2005.

In 2012 “Krachttraining en coördinatie, een integratieve benadering” (Strength training and coordination, an integrated approach) was published in the Netherlands.
