From the Creator. Meet the Man Behind the Hand Speed Trainer™ Phenomenon Sweeping the Nation.
The Hand Speed Trainer™ has been developed by former college football athlete, U.S. Bobsled Team Member and sports enthusiast Dave Owens.
While Dave was traveling, training and competing at sports venues all around the world, he had a vision, a foresight of a training device that was needed but not yet developed to aide in quickness, speed and strength…three key elements that enhance athletic performance. He designed this training device, created it and has now patented the “Hand Speed Trainer™.” The Hand Speed Trainer™, HST™, is like no other. It is a training device that fits securely on your forearm that allows you to accomplish resistance-type training with weights while not restricting any other movement to achieve top athletic performance. It can actually train your body to operate and accept a new level of performance. By keeping the weight closer to the centerline of the body an athlete is able to maintain correct body mechanics without altering them. The HST™ allows you to train smarter and maximize your efforts.
Dave Owens, President of Eagle Training Systems and inventor of the Hand Speed Trainer™ has been devoted to sports training for much of his life. After ending his football career, he was lured into the bobsledding world where he rose to the top, becoming a four-time member of the U.S. National Bobsled team.
After undergoing surgery for testicular cancer, Dave stepped down from actually jumping in the bobsleds to officiating the sport at the Salt Lake 2002 Olympics. Dave was nominated to carry the U.S. Olympic torch across a portion of his home state.
Dave knows what it’s like to work hard, train and achieve great things. He is passionate about everything he does and gives it 100%. During his bobsled years he also coached football, basketball, baseball and track at a local private school in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Dave is still a teacher/coach and now focuses on teaching his students the life lessons learned by playing sports. His dedication and passion flows from his heart and has been flamed by being so involved in the sports arena.
Knowing athletes so well, training at the Olympic Training Centers, learning from some of the top trainers in the world, Dave has shrunk the gap and created a training device where the hand can actually be quicker than the eye. If you’re an athlete, you know speed, strength and results are all that matter…the HST™ can get you there.
