Red Bulls Kick Things Off at this Season's First Training Session

New York took to the training pitch for the first time this season Wednesday morning in Florida

The Red Bulls took to the training pitch Wednesday morning for the first official training session of the 2013 season. Overall, the workout was a light one, as players and trainers focused more on stretching, running, and various conditioning and passing drills. The two-a-day schedule will only help speed up the conditioning process. As the week progresses, so too will the intensity of the workouts.

If you’d like to check out a few pictures from the first day of training, head on over to our Facebook page. Be sure to keep an eye out for some new faces in Red Bulls kits, including the likes of Juninho, Fabian Espindola (sporting a new haircut), Jamison Olave, and more. We’ll continue to deliver updates during the training sessions via our Twitter account, and will of course keep you posted on Facebook and NewYorkRedBulls.com.
