Customer experiences

“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.”

Rikke, Saiva & Ipa, from Norway

“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!!!!”

Karen & Erin, from United Kingdom

“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.”

Siw & Chili and Ducati from Norway

“Speed Up All Stars is a training program that makes you sweat, gives you sore muscles, makes you test your limits and move the barrier of “can do” further. I have done lots of sports in my youth but had not followed any structured training program for a long time. Now with two structured exercises a week I got back in the routine and enjoyed that I did not have to come up with exercises myself. I have to admit that not all of the exercises were pleasant to do but they made me stronger, both physically and mentally. And I will never forget the one training session with 26 spurts.. my legs were sore for quite some days after that. After 3+ months following the program, I feel that I am running faster and it might even be true as we got our last clean runs to move to A2 ;)”

Cheers, Hedi Peterson & Bosu from Estonian

“Speed Up All Stars is excellent for handlers who have a hard time fitting their timetables to set training times. The program includes two training sessions a week and you can progress at your own pace so other training, vacations and illness, for example, don’t interfere with the program at all. The exercises are described well both in text and video format, and easy to do by yourself. You get individual feedback on your technique and, if need be, instructions on how to alter the exercises to better suit you. My goal has been to improve my running technique and make my spurts sharper, because it’s most fun when both my dog and I can give it our all from start to finish! Progress is followed with kick-off, midway and final tests. In practice, I can see the results of the program in making it to certain places to handle much easier than I had thought during the walk-through. (Photo: Johanna Koski)“

Sincerely, Anna Pekkala & Odile from Finland

“I recommend Speed Up All Stars -training program to all agility handlers. It is very easy to follow. The website is easy to use and the training program has both written descriptions and videos of the exercises. It also has a beginner and an advanced level, because of which it is not too hard to do for anyone. The best part about it is that the program is available for 6 months, which means that you don’t miss anything, if life gets in the way of training.“

Sara Marja Boine and Titan from Norway
