"The man who can drive himself further once the effort gets painful is the man who will win."
-Roger Bannister, Olympic Athlete
Being a good baseball player takes a lot of time, dedication and patience.
It’s been a long-time belief of mine that you don’t go far in life without a lot of hard work and time spent refining your craft, whatever that may be. I have loved baseball since I was a child. Currently, my passion for the sport is carried on through training today’s youth to be able to get the most from themselves, while having a good time competing in America’s favorite pastime.
Playing baseball is more than just trying to win. Don’t get me wrong, I love to win, but playing a great game and seeing the team work well together can also be very satisfying. Watching baseball players progress is the best part of my business.
Whether it be high school, college or in professional baseball, the skills are the same, but the level at which those skills are utilized is what distinguishes one athlete from the next. Knowing how to set yourself above the rest is key to being a well-rounded athlete, therefore, I encourage my players to take their education seriously and work just as hard on their studies as they do on the field.
I look forward to working with you and your baseball player. Please give me a call or contact me through the contact form at the bottom of this page for private lessons or strength conditioning camp information.
