Improve your Agility with Ashley Guarrasi

Ashley Guarrasi is a personal trainer specializing in boxing fitness and functional movement. Over the past ten years she has become a well-known name in the boxing fitness community, establishing residency at the Equinox West Hollywood gym training celebrity clients, and leading health and wellness retreats around the country.

As a personal trainer with a boxing background, Ashley knows how important agility is to any and every athlete. Below are three of her favorite drills to enhance your agility and quickness.

Drill #1 – Fast Feet

All you need for this drill is four cones and a strong work ethic. Ashley utilizes this drill to get her heart rate up while helping improve her speed with quick and repetitive movements. This drill will also strengthen your joints, ligaments, and tendons.

 

Drill #2 – Toe Taps

Any drill where you combine footwork, speed, and movement in different directions is great for improving agility, but this one is especially easy to set up and perform. All you need is a line or slightly elevated surface to use as your baseline point. This exercise really helps your quick twitch muscles fire rapidly so you can create that burst of speed you need for any sport.

 

Drill #3 – High Knees with Ladder

This high knee drill exaggerates your running stride to fire up your calves, glutes, and hamstrings while promoting knee lift and encouraging rapid turnover. It’s a great way to practice running fast while improving your speed using efficient form.
