Ricky Igbani was a three-sport high school athlete who competed on the football, track, and baseball teams. Taking his talents to college, he successfully played baseball and track throughout his career. As his education wrapped up, a lightbulb went off about the opportunities he could have working with students and athletes himself.
From this original thought in his college dorm room, Ricky got started and has never looked back. Ricky is an accomplished teacher, coach, and mentor for students and athletes all across the greater Boston area. From his time as a PE teacher to creating new opportunities for high-achieving athletes, Ricky has always made a difference on and off the field.
Now Ricky has created his own company called IJE and is working with PLT4M to make the very best educational speed & agility content. Ricky seems to always be on the move!
On this episode of Chalk Talk, we talk about Ricky’s journey and get into the weeds of speed and agility. Check out the full blog for more of the content that we reference throughout the show.
We talk on today’s episode about Coach Igbani’s version of Butt Kickers. Check it out below.

Students and athletes are introduced to the wide world of “training”. Whether it be through PVCs and Med Balls, or Barbells and Squat Racks, athletes are given a thorough education of all different types of training approaches and modalities. From Strength development, to aerobic capacity, to mobility, and everything in between. Athletes should have completed L1, or have had some semblance of proper movement education and capacity training.

The most in-depth programs, reliant on dedicated students and athletes that are self-motivated or coaches that are progressive & proactive.
