DISCOVER THE PERFECT METHOD’S
Attention to the Details
Running your best demands power, speed and coordination. These are the results you’ll enjoy from a continuous conditioning program that focuses on strength, endurance, flexibility, agility and balance. Carl Lewis and his coach, Tom Tellez, designed workouts that conform to the competitive seasons – enabling athletes to tune their training to the high demand periods and off season opportunities.
Beyond the workouts, physical readiness includes proper nutrition because it helps performance and improves recovery time. Today, there are proven methods to measure nutritional deficiencies at the micro level, allowing for very specific tailoring of necessary vitamins and minerals to help you get the most out of your training to achieve maximum physical performance.
Conditioning and nutrition deliver the baseline capacity of every athlete.

MAINTAIN YOUR FOCUS
Build Your Confidence
Sports training has become increasingly scientific as athletes and coaches look for a competitive edge. It’s important to apply the scientific principles correctly. For the first time, The Perfect Method presents the information in a way that’s easy to understand and emulate.
Carl Lewis learned these skills first from his parents and then from the internationally respected coach, Tom Tellez. What he learned from them was the key reason for his success. This information has certainly stood the test of time and is scientifically sound because it applies the fundamental mechanics of human motion.
Focus on the details, then practice each one until you’re doing it right consistently. There aren’t any shortcuts. Be patient and trust the process used by the masters of running.

The Mental Edge
Athletic training is hard. To stay on track you need to have the right goal – the one that’s beyond what’s predictable – and you need to believe that it’s possible. The right plan removes the barriers to your success and shows you a clear path to your opportunity.
From there, it’s about doing the work. You have to focus, accept coaching instruction and make big sacrifices, especially if you see the word “champion” in your future. These require concentration, trust, humility and deep-seated commitment. And, just like our nation’s military personnel and top business leaders, champion athletes know how to perform under pressure and very high levels of stress. That’s because they practice under the conditions that could cause an error. The mental edge is as important as physical talent. We’ve teamed with world-class performance psychologists to help you strengthen yours.
Train to do your best. No matter what.
