Our mission statement is to provide you with today's best and most current performance training information available. We believe that baseball is the most over played and under trained of all sports.

From the Desk of Steve Johnson
As the competition for scholarships or spots on elite travel teams has increased significantly in the last few years, so to has the amount of misinformation on what is good, better or best for pitchers and hitters progress. The biggest example of this is in strength training and conditioning. Everyone is searching for methods and ways to increase a pitchers strength, velocity, and endurance. The problem is very few know how to actually achieve this in the safest and most correct method. Olympic style lifts, Kettle bells and even long distance running is not the answer and can impede performance and health in many negative ways. Functional or useable strength should be the goal for all pitchers, not understanding this seems to be a wide spread problem with in baseball.
" Be very careful there are a lot of so-called experts who claim they have the correct information but in my experience they do not, it can really be a big problem" --- Steve Johnson
