Keith Coury Quest Speed Head Trainer

KEITH  COURY M.S.

OWNER / MASTER TRAINER

For over two decades, Keith has trained athletes from youth to the professional level. Being a three-sport athlete himself, Keith went on to earn a full athletic scholarship to play division 1 college football. Keith holds a Masters of Science degree in Kinesiology and is currently working on his Ph.D. in Health & Human Performance. Constantly striving for new knowledge, growth, and cutting-edge methodology.
 
Keith believes that the psychology of sport is as important as the physical aspects. His unique approach prepares athletes to perform both mentally and physically as they strive towards personal goals. Some trainers know what is supposed to be done, those who know how to motivate, and those who know how to teach. Keith’s ability to apply all three of these disciplines brings the best out of every athlete.
 
We’re certain that you’ll discover, in your first session, his knowledge of speed development and the science of how it is applied is unique in the industry.
 
“I know first hand what it takes to be an elite athlete. It’s not just physical preparation, but mental focus as well. I spent the better part of my athletic career being told that I was too small and could not play at the next level. My desire and drive are what earned me an opportunity to play college sports and have my education paid for. My passion is to teach athletes what it will take to be successful both mentally and physically. At QUEST Speed, I am honest, real, and demanding but that is because I consider every athlete that trains here as part of my family. There is no better feeling than knowing that we may have played a small part in helping an athlete achieve their dream.”
