Too often coaches and experts talk about velocity based training in the abstract.
Theoretical concepts and vague notions about the relationship between one metric and another, but rarely real-world advice for the coach in the gym.
There are few things I find more frustrating than good ideas wasted due to poor transfer into actual practical settings.
Everything we create, write, or talk about on this website is done through the lens of practical coaching. I constantly ask: “can a coach or athlete use this tomorrow in their training?”

My name is Jacob and I am passionate about velocity based training.
I have been working as a full time coach in the private and professional sectors with Core Advantage Athletic Development since 2013.
From 2016, I have been quietly developing an obsession with all things velocity based training for me it just makes sense to be measuring your velocity and using that data to create more informed and calibrated training decisions.
I have been dedicating a lot of thinking and practice to not only the underpinning principles and science of velocity tracking, but also the every day application of VBT in real world training environments (including its use in our busy high performance centre).
In 2018 we launched our comprehensive velocity based training course at coreadvantage.training. While in 2021 I started sharing my thoughts and ideas on all things VBT. Initially with my instagram page @VBTcoach and now this website through the blog and the free training resources I have created.
