Ask the Expert: Nick Winkelman
"Agility is the ability to change speed and direction in non-reactive and reactive conditions. Training that focuses on non-reactive agility improves the quickness, strength, and power qualities that support effective change of direction. Training reactive agility improves decision-making capabilities in relation to specific sport and life demands. The same drills can be used for reactive and non-reactive agility training with the only difference being the addition of a stimulus (i.e. sight, sound or touch) during reactive agility drills."
