HOW WE TRAIN

Comprehensive training to build Athleticism, Resilience and Confidence.

Speed & Agility

What is Speed & Agility?

Moving the body in one direction as fast as possible coupled with the ability to accelerate, decelerate, stabilize, and quickly change directions with proper posture.

Why is Speed & Agility important?

Athletes experience more success and have more confidence on their chosen field of play when they work to improve their speed and agility. They’ll react faster, move more fluidly, and make more plays.

How do we train Speed & Agility?

Redline teaches proper running mechanics and posture while incorporating dedicated focus on linear speed, lateral speed, footwork, change of direction, jumping and landing.

What is Strength & Conditioning?

Engaging in activities to improve performance by applying the general sports training principles of overload, reversibility, progression, individualization, periodization, and specificity. (ref 1, 2)

Why is Strength & Conditioning important?

To achieve their full potential, aspiring Athletes must understand proper posture, balance their movement patterns, build supporting and stabilizing muscle groups, improve mobility, and enhance their coordination. (ref 3)

How we train Strength & Conditioning?

Redline believes in age-appropriate strength and resistance training. We prioritize safety in every movement by focusing on proper mechanics first, followed by consistency, and then intensity.

Injury Prevention

What is Injury Prevention?

The outcome of the collective training activities consistently performed by an athlete to help him/her avoid major or season-ending injury.

Why is Injury Prevention important?

Athletes want to be able to perform at their best, and they never want to miss out on games or competitions due to injury.  Well-rounded Athletes who train their body and movement patterns will be better prepared, more resilient, and able to thrive throughout the demands of a season, postseason and beyond.

How do we train Injury Prevention?

Redline provides a comprehensive and well-rounded program to develop speed, agility, strength, body awareness, movement mechanics, and posture. In all, it’s a great way to help ensure your Athlete stays strong, ready, and on their chosen field of play.

What Our Members Say

  • We partnered up with Redline Athletics this past Winter to provide our players a structured and focused, strength, conditioning and agility program during the off-season. Zach and his staff at Redline truly know what they are doing. Our players love the sessions and have made it a point to go in and take advantage of their trainers and facility on their own. I feel this has been a vital component to get these players back to a mental state of drive and purpose after enduring and still dealing with the pandemic that has affected us all. The program that Zach and his team have developed for our softball program has come with many visible results. Players are hitting the ball with more power, pitchers are stronger and have more endurance and you can see more confidence in their demeanor. Another big benefit that I have seen is the overall health and better recovery time after a long weekend of playing games. The girls are stronger, quicker and they are just starting to scratch the surface of the potential they can achieve with hard work and dedication. We plan to continue with the program during the season and make it a part of our practice and training in the upcoming years.

    The facility is state of the art and has all the tools and gadgets needed to keep participants engaged and wanting more. I also have rented out the facility to host basketball games and practices and I had great feedback from coaches and parents about the court. We also utilize the open space to take fielding and batting practice while a group works with their trainers. The space gives us the opportunity to do many softball related drills and pitching sessions.

    I would definitely recommend Zach and his team to any program looking to solidify and enhance their athletes athletic foundation that will in turn pay dividend in any sport they play.

I also love how convenient the schedule is, we can go to classes whenever it works for our family. We will for sure sign up again, the investment is worth every penny.
