Sleigh Your Dragin

Stronger, Leaner, Faster.

That’s what we all want.

So what is the optimal exercise?

  • Helps you look better, feel better, and think better
  • Makes you stronger, even while getting leaner
  • Makes you faster
  • Fast (6-12 minutes)
  • FUN
  • Safe
  • Easy to learn

Ideally, it would also:

  • Not make you sore
  • Need minimal and inexpensive equipment
  • Can be done inside or outside, in almost any weather
  • Be effectively used by:
    • National Champions
    • Those in rehab and recovery
    • Newer, as well as advanced, lifters
    • Those needing a brake from “lifting” or needing a deload

In more than 20 years of training and coaching, I have tried many things. Lots of them work, but I didn’t find what really worked for me until I began experimenting with…

Sled Training

IMG_3437

Sled pushes are great. If you were to do only one thing, that would probably be the best (even according to some of the very best and most well known strength coaches out there).

But my sled programs go well beyond that and allow you to perform movements that are truly full body compound exercises.

Sled training is great for you if you are:

  • Getting ready for ski season
  • Wanting to be stronger and faster on the bike
  • Trying to lose weight
  • Tired of the gym
  • Rehabbing a knee
  • Looking for a quick, fun resistance workout
  • Wanting a hard workout that won’t make you sore

For some background, I have been training for more than 20 years. I have been a certified Sports Performance Coach for many years and I am a college strength and conditioning coach that has worked with National Champion athletes. I love to experiment and test things out, with myself, and then with my athletes.

I have tried many techniques to get stronger and faster. I have also tried a lot of different things with the athletes that I work with to help them get stronger, faster and leaner, while keeping them injury-free, including Olympic lifting, powerlifting, CrossFit, TRX, HIIT, Triphasic, plyometrics, compensatory acceleration, to name a few. All of these work to a degree, but none were ideal.

Gavin SledThen, I started experimenting with sleds. I developed a program that I have used with excellent results with a number of national champion athletes, as in-season workouts, as deloads, as well as full programs. In my many years of training, I have seen nothing as effective.

What others are saying

“I have gotten so much stronger. I think the focus on the posterior chain and generating power has made a huge difference in my skiing. Can’t say enough about the positive changes.” Division I Ski Racer

“I have worked with Topher for the past three years of my racing career as a trainer and workout coach. He has prepared me for elite skiing performances, one of which resulted in a NCAA Division I Championship title.”

“I’ve seen the incredible impact his coaching has had on my strength and the strength of my teammates.”

“If I had to trace the catalyst for our success to a single cause, it would be early morning sled workouts with Topher. The team met at six am to push, pull, drag, and crawl with workout sleds. Topher used a variety of different weights, distances, and repetitions to ensure all levels of athlete were working at their maximum capacity.”

“His technical expertise and natural teaching ability allows our athletes to use more advanced lifts than our competitors and to do so safely. Most importantly, the cumulative strength gains our team has made in this time has surpassed our goals.” Division I Coach

“I’ve been extremely impressed how Topher has created plans that have provided appropriate levels of challenge to every athlete”
