You don’t have to be an athlete to succeed in agility. We will teach you how to train the right way to speed up your triumph
– the Fitness Coach of Agility Champions


As you know, an agility handler has to have sharp senses and keen reactions. Yet, all too often we focus on becoming a better guide for our dog and forget to improve our own physical performance.

Speed Up Agility online courses are tailored around the specific techniques and processes that an agility handler should master. We will show you easy steps to improve your fitness, so you can make the most of each round on the course. With our help you and your dog can become a real dream team.

“Midway through #speedupagility online course, and I love the feeling of being able to give my all – even on the fifth run of the second day!. The runs felt great, and I think being able to run faster makes it easier to handle Chili. She is really independent, and commits so early to the next jump that she is quite the challenge to run. But this weekend we didn’t have any DQ’s (a miracle), and I think that me being able to really RUN is one of the reasons why. There have definitely been improvements in both speed & stamina. Feeling (almost) ready for WAO. I’m so happy to be a part of this course, thank you.”

“I participated in Speed Up All Stars for several reasons: I wanted to become a better runner, I want to keep up with my new dog, prepare for World Agility Open and improve my running technique. I find Speed Up All Stars really easy to follow. The exercises are explained really well with both text and video, you can choose the level that suits you best and it gives you that extra push you need to practice running. I am no big fan of running, but Speed Up All Stars has helped me to like it better and make me want to improve even more. My dog Saiva’s speed has also increased a lot and we have gotten lots of comments on how fast she is now. Some of this must be due to my improved running, I believe. If you want to get in better shape, run faster or just try a new way of exercising, this is the program for you.”

“This weekend my young dog qualified for her first national final. This was a Steeplechase run with all 3 heights competing against each other. My dog is a small. The course was FAST. I had to really run to be sure to be in the right place and I absolutely credit the Speed Up All Stars programme for the fact that I was where I needed to be, when I needed to be! I never would have been able to keep up before this programme! So THANK YOU!!!!”
