Football Performance

Gain the Edge on Your Competition

Using a comprehensive approach to train speed, power, agility and endurance, our Athletic Performance Program enables athletes to jump higher, react quicker, reduce risk of injury and maximize their full potential.

Whether you’re looking to maximize explosiveness, improve change of direction and hand-eye coordination, and/or increase acceleration and first-step quickness off the line, we can help you realize your goals. Football performance measures include:

  • Linear speed development
  • 40-yard dash (evaluation and technique)
  • First-step quickness evaluation
  • Plyometrics
  • Combine training
  • Injury prevention
  • Nutritional assessment

This program introduces more advanced motor movement patterns, along with the development of multi-joint movements using free weights, medicine balls and swiss balls. Athletes will work on proper technique, quality repetitions and injury prevention.

Elite I

The Elite I athlete will focus on sport and position-specific development, and increased multi-joint functional exercises. High-intensity conditioning tests and injury prevention recommendations will be included.

Elite II

Elite II ramps up the intensity. The program will center on functional strength, while also incorporating functional movement, core, neuromuscular adaptation and injury prevention.
