Here are two clips of Ford working on his block starts. Clip one was before coming to Coats Performance for training, which his focus was on knee drive and triple extension.
Clip two is him working with Coats Performance. In this clip, the focus wasn't knee drive or triple extension. After learning a different method of sprint training, Ford is now more efficient with his block starts.

"Looking back on where my daughter was and the knowledge gained since putting our trust in Coats Performance is remarkable. Kendrique is a person of unbelievable knowledge. Whatever sport you're pursuing, Coats Performance will ensure that you are supplied with every speed and agility tool possible for you to reach your goals. Kendrique will give 100% of himself and beyond to help in your success. Each conversation I had with him, I learned so much about how properly training the athlete has so much more to it than work and time put in. It also has so much to do with who believes in you and how much you believe in yourself. Kendrique not only taught my daughter proper speed and agility training techniques, but believed in her and instilled a belief in herself that she could do it and love it while working hard to accomplish her goals. I will be forever grateful for the inspiration given by Kendrique. My daughter is a better athlete, but more importantly, a better person because of Coats Performance." - Tina E. (Mother).

He designed workouts that matched my ability level and would adjust them as my abilities increased. Each workout was tailored to my needs. Kendrique has been a constant source of guidance, encouragement, motivation, and support on my journey to getting fit and losing weight.

This would not have been possible without you!"
