Urban athletes face unique challenges in their training and performance.

They often have limited access to resources and facilities, and they may have to train in unpredictable environments. This is where agility training comes in.

Agility training is essential for urban athletes because it helps them to move quickly and easily in changing conditions. It also helps them to develop the neuromuscular coordination, balance, and body awareness they need to succeed in their sport.

But agility training is more than just about physical performance. It's also about developing mental toughness, resilience, and adaptability. These are all essential qualities for success in life, both on and off the field.

Faith and Agility

As a Christian coach, I believe that faith can play a powerful role in agility training.

When we trust God, we can face challenges with confidence and overcome obstacles with His help.

In the Bible, we see many examples of people who overcame great challenges through faith. For example, David defeated Goliath, Daniel survived the lion's den, and Paul endured persecution and imprisonment.

These men were all agile in the sense that they were able to adapt to changing circumstances and overcome challenges. But their agility was more than just physical. It was also rooted in their faith and trust in God.

Agility Training for the Mind, Body, Time, and Space

Agility training can be broken down into four key areas: mind, body, time, and space.

  • Mind: Agility training for the mind helps you to stay focused and make quick decisions under pressure. It also helps you to develop a positive attitude and a belief in yourself.
  • Body: Agility training for the body helps you to improve your speed, quickness, and coordination. It also helps you to develop strength and power.
  • Time: Agility training for time helps you to manage your time effectively and make the most of every opportunity.
  • Space: Agility training for space helps you to become aware of your surroundings and to move efficiently in tight spaces.

Faith-Driven Athletic Performance

Faith can play a role in all four areas of agility training.

For example, when you're struggling to stay focused during a workout, you can pray for God to give you strength and perseverance.

When you're facing a challenge in your sport, you can trust God to help you overcome it.

Here are a few specific examples of how faith can drive athletic performance:

  • Faith can boost your confidence. When you believe in yourself and your ability to succeed, you're more likely to perform at your best.
  • Faith can help you to overcome adversity. When things get tough, faith can give you the strength and resilience to keep going.
  • Faith can help you to stay focused and motivated. When you have a purpose beyond winning and losing, you're more likely to stay focused and motivated during training and competition.


Agility training is essential for urban athletes who want to succeed in their sport and in life.

Faith can play a powerful role in agility training by boosting your confidence, helping you to overcome adversity, and keeping you focused and motivated.

If you're an urban athlete, I encourage you to embrace agility training and to let your faith guide you on your journey.

Grace and Peace!
