Developing the WHOLE Athlete


By Team Speed - May 11, 2018

Defender, Luke Hansen, of the Colorado Rapids Soccer club and US Men's National Team Pool Player is one of the most dedicated and consistent athletes we have. Luke has been training with Sterling 3days/week before school for years now. Coaches across the country and across the world acknowledge that Luke's speed and physicality are what set him apart on the field. It's important for Luke to be a well rounded athlete. Developing Luke's upper body has been just as important as maintaining strength and power in his legs. Without a strong core and upper body, Luke wouldn't be able to hold off his opponents and run through tackles like he does.
