Athlete's are fast, powerful, and mobile. They move with grace and beauty. Not everyone is a good athlete but you can train like one to become quicker and more fluid.
Power and speed are the foundations of a good athlete. To be fast you must move fast. A mix of sprints, jumps, and throws are ideal for converting strength into power.
