One thing that many coaches have found is that if you are concerned with getting up quickly to sprint a short distance, your body ususally finds good form to sprint with. This is a point Charlie Francis has made as well.
These drills are really fun, too.

Drop and sprints, repeated, are effective metcon, besides.
