13 and Older Speed & Strength Program

CSI’s Speed & Endurance Program is designed to safely and effectively improve an athlete’s overall running economy. Athletes taking part in this program will expect to improve their running mechanics, acceleration, agility, top speed and endurance.

The athlete that can run the fastest, jump the highest, cut and accelerate the quickest, perform endurance activity at high intensities are those athletes who have the highest strength to body weight ratio. The key to sport speed is improving your relative body strength. Over twenty years in the business of making thousands of athletes stronger and faster, we are confident that we have the sport-specific strength system that will meet the needs of your athlete.

Athletes between the ages of 13 – 14 years are generally able to perform the basic requirements of our program and are at the beginner level for strength training allowing them to participate in our Speed & Endurance Program and/or Strength Program.

Athletes 15 & Older can generally tolerate more intense levels of training. We integrate sport-specific speed and agility drills and build upon the linear and multi-directional speed curriculum all while offering an energetic and competitive environment.

Sport Strength

Athletes will be challenged through progressive resistance, time and intensity, performed under controlled tempo and full range of motion. We will utilize each of the components of Power, Strength and Stamina while incorporating “prehab” exercises to prepare ancillary muscles necessary in preventing injury. Sessions consist of weightlifting, body weight and suspension training exercises. Beginner athletes and athletes who have not been through a Performance Evaluation & Strength Orientation will have modifications to exercises and equipment (PVC pipe versus Barbell, etc).

Our Strength Training Program can be utilized as:

1. A strength & conditioning program designed to enhance one’s sport

2. A supplement to any other athletic or fitness activity

3. A primary form or fitness and athletic enhancement

Our strength training program consists of functional, athletic and multi-joint movements, executed with precision. Our athletes learn the principles of tempo, torque and tension. They learn about full range of motion and proper performance breathing techniques. Our athletes understand that form is followed by intensity. Our athletes understand the number one reason why they are strength training: To prevent injury.

“I began training with John Collis and CSI Athlete in 2007 while rehabbing from a knee injury during my high school athletic career.  John and his team of coaches were instrumental in my recovery from this injury, designing a personalized athletic training program structured to rehabilitate and strengthen.  I continued training with CSI Athlete while pursuing Division I college athletics as a pitcher for the Ohio State University Baseball Team, focusing on speed, agility, strength and conditioning as well as nutrition.  John and his staff has offered high level expertise at all athletic training levels.  My customized programs have helped me attain my personal goals and contribute to team goals in the off season.  Coach Collis’ training and expertise has assisted me at every level: From high school, college and now as a professional baseball player with the Miami Marlins.”

“Coach Collis and CSI Athlete has allowed me to become a better athlete and in turn has allowed me to perform at a much higher level in my chosen sport, baseball.  The progress I made has been amazing to me and I did not think it could happen as fast as it did.  John and his trainers designed a workout program that was specific to my weaknesses and have made them into strengths.  The positive nature of the workouts built a team environment, which motivated everyone in the class including myself.  Even though the workouts can be hard, the trainers work on perfect form so when you get into school workouts or college, you’ll be ready to work out the right way and avoid injury.  I will continue to train with Coach Collis and the CSI Athelte Team until they tell me I can’t come back!”

“Whether your goal is to advance high school performance, participate in college athletics, or compete on the national stage, John Collis and his CSI Athlete coaches will grant the competitive edge to take the next step.  I began training with Coach Collis and the CSI Athlete Team in 2006, as a high school swimmer with the goal to compete at the state level.  I quickly became invested in goal setting, heightening performance capacity, and tailoring speed and agility to my sport – all unique components of Coach Collis and his highly experienced performance coaches.  Over the course of 7 years at CSI Athlete, I had the opportunity to train with elite athletes of all sports, implement speed and strength training techniques to swimming, and foster mentorships that continue to this day.  I truly believe Coach Collis and CSI Athlete was a crucial component to both my physical and mental performance enhancement, being a steady resource for my progress from the state to collegiate, and national to international level.”
