Q&A with Jeremy Fischer

Jeremy Fischer is the Head Coach of Track and Field at the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, California. He has coached at every level from College to pro track athletes, as well as working with MLB and NFL players on speed development and power.  He was a professional athlete in the High Jump and All-American for the University of Wisconsin. Over the last few years, I've had the pleasure and privilege of working with him and his athletes doing trackside performance therapy with them. He is an outstanding coach from whom I've learned a lot about elite performance and training. You can find him on twitter @jeremyfhj and web here: http://www.maximumvelocityathletics.com/ He is the personal coach of Will Claye and Brittney Reese, both Olympic medalists from London 2012. I hope you enjoy these insights from one of the greats!
