Every single one of our F.A.S.T School sessions begins with our Carlisle Athletic Profile. This is the foundation of our time-tested training system from The Bay Area’s Best Speed Trainers. Choose the ALL-SPORT option or one of our SPORTS-SPECIFIC classes.

The F.A.S.T School’s objective is to teach you the technical basics of running mechanics, lateral movement, and multi-directional movement. We teach you how to apply our movement techniques and strategies to benefit you while on the playing field.

We’ll use state-of-the-art equipment to measure…


Top-end speed

Change of direction

Reaction Time

With these metrics, we’ll develop your own profile. After the assessment is complete, you’ll get three weeks in our beginner F.A.S.T School which focuses on both Speed Training for Youth Athletes and Speed Training for High School Athletes. After 4 weeks, you’ll move onto the advanced F.A.S.T school.

Beginner and Advanced F.A.S.T school’s are offered to middle school youth (grades 5-8) and high school youth (grades 9-12) in all sports. 

We also have team-focused sessions and a stand-alone speed assessment & profile available.

You’re our passion project.
You want your coach to love what they do. Coach Carlisle is one of the few performance coaches who didn’t choose to get into the educational field with his expertise. He’s on that field, day in-day out because he felt a calling to truly improve people’s lives. The heart of Carlisle Performance is “make your best even better”, and it shows. The training you’ll get with us cares about all of you – mind, body and soul.

Schedule your F.AS.T. session.


How long are the training sessions good for after purchase?

30 days is our standard policy – you have one month from purchase to utilize your sessions, unless given written approval for extenuating circumstances by Coach Carlisle. Don’t worry though, our athletes who see the best results train an average of 1.5-2x per week, so you’ll have no problem using your sessions!

The easiest way to register is with our mobile app! Available on both iOS and Google Play, you can purchase additional training packages, see available training sessions and reserve your spot. You can also do all of that on our website.

Our athletes are achieving their best results when they commit to training an average of 1.5 or 2 times per week. Training consistently like that results in all around improvements – speed, agility, quickness, strength, and power (including jumping).

During a trial session we want you to get the real deal! So you’ll experience an actual training session to get a feel for how the program works. 

Once you purchase a package, the first session will be an assessment so we have our baseline for where you’re at and can develop a program custom to your individual needs.

Coach Carlisle hasn’t just coached athletes at all levels (from youth to professional), he’s also coached thousands of coaches at those levels.

No matter if Coach Carlisle is present at your training session (which he tries to be at them all!), you’ll be receiving some of the premier coaching in the Silicon Valley from each of the coaches at Carlisle Performance.

Members get a 10% discount (requires 3 month commitment to receive discount). It’s also our most popular payment choice.

By signing on as a member, it lets us know you’re just as committed as we are and we want to reward that! It also makes it easier to get up to the 6 or 8 session package to achieve maximal results. Even with the membership, you’re free to cancel at any time (providing a 7-day notice) and we’ll opt you out of your membership.

If you’re registered for an Athletic Development Academy training package and only sessions from other levels are available, you can absolutely still sign up! We limit the training sessions to 4-6 athletes so with 2 or 3 coaches available, we’ll be able to accommodate another level and ensure your child meets their training needs.

If you end up getting waitlisted for class, a Carlisle Performance coach will get with you as soon as we confirm availability and let you know if you can attend that class.

While we send most of our athletes home with exercises and areas of focus for when they’re not training with us, we do not send individualized programs home as part of the training package. If you’re interested in a take-home program for an additional cost, let a Carlisle Performance Coach know and we’ll begin the programming!

The capped athlete ratio is one coach to four athletes.

As it stands with our current system, we’ve been even more personalized with one coach for every two to three athletes per session.

F.A.S.T. School is a four-week program, so we recommend registering for all four sessions.

They’re progressive in nature and will build upon each other. If you can’t commit to all four sessions, there is what we call a “drop-in” option where you can choose a session ahead of time to drop in on.

To get a taste for the full F.A.S.T. School, we offer a one-time intro session to experience what it’s like training with Carlisle Performance. While you will go through an actual training session, the intro class does not include the CPP Speed Profile.

YES! We’d love to see you experience the Academy. You still have to book your session and reserve your spot, so login to your account or use the app!

Coach Carlisle has conducted over 10,000 speed sessions and has worked with athletes at every level of competition. Given the uniqueness of the CPP Speed Profile we’ll be generating for you, your plan will be specific to your needs for improving game speed.

We highly recommend pushing sessions out for a later date rather than cancelling or refunding them. However, we do approve written refund requests for reasons (such as injuries).

Because F.A.S.T. School sessions are held on turf, we recommend wearing any type of athletic cleats (soccer, football, baseball, etc.)

The Basic F.A.S.T. School begins with the CPP Speed Profile and then three subsequent sessions to learn the basics of running mechanics, lateral movement, and multi-directional movement. After completing the Basic F.A.S.T. School, you automatically move on to the Advanced F.A.S.T. School where you’ll continue learning advanced techniques for maximal speed development. These advanced techniques include things such as progression to reaction, game speed, plyometrics, advanced resistance training, functional resistance training.

You can book either through our app or logged in online right here at our website. Top right corner with your username and password 🙂

At our Strength and Power Facility in San Jose, the programs are focused on developing strength, power, flexibility, mobility, short area quickness and ultimately improving ability to move from point A to point B. The coach to athlete ratio is at most one to four which allows for individual attention while working with our state-of-the-art equipment.

At Kings Academy, we have 4,000 square yards of turf to operate our F.A.S.T. (Functional Athletic Speed Training) programs. As the name implies, those programs are speed intensive, working on linear speed, long speed, top speed, and multi-directional movement with the goal of improving overall game speed. Kings Academy is also where we conduct our assessments.

Currently the program times for Kings Academy are limited.

Most booking difficulties occur when booking a session that takes place that day. Within one hour of a session you’re unable to book a session online, but you can call us at 609-638-1200 to check immediate availability for that session.

Coach Carlisle is a national leader in the performance field and draws on his 25+ years of experience coaching at every level to product a training system individualized for you. Our scientific approach using state-of-the-art technology and equipment (e.g. force plates) provides us the ability to dial in on exactly what you need, and get you results at every level.

You’ll need to create an account for both yourself and your child and you must book training sessions via your child’s account.
