Athletics is a full-time job for prep athletes in the 21st Century.

That is the starting point for a program athletic trainer Paul Cullen is teaching this summer in Wadena.


Functional Athletic Sports Training (FAST) returned to Wadena two years ago. Cullen stepped into the program four years ago and brought it back to Wadena in 2008. FAST consists of speed, agility and strength training that is designed to lessen the chance of sports injuries while increasing athleticism.
