In the first edition of In the Gym at EFT, TF North graduate Landon Cox, who was a star wide receiver at Northern Illinois and later in the NFL, shares some tips on how to become a better receiver and be more efficient on the field.
Cox is a Performance Specialist and wide receiver coach at EFT. In this segment Cox works on a few different techniques with Warren Township junior wide receiver Micah Jones.
EFT has evolved into the premier elite performance training facility in the Midwest, where several EFT football coaches has NFL experience and the dedication to helping each player reach their potential. The EFT Football Academy is designed to assist in the development of grade school, high school, and collegiate football players.
Some of their off-season training experience includes 70+ active NFL athletes, six Super Bowl Champions, six Olympics, and more.
In addition, performance includes explosive power development, positional movement pattern development, proper spring and change of direction mechanics, and more. Every EFT workout focuses on improving each athlete's overall abilities like speed development, agility and mobility, acceleration and deceleration, and strength and condition — just to name a few.
Former Bears wide receiver Devin Hester called it "the best workout in the world."
