baseball and softball conditioning

Baseball and Softball are great sports that develop a strong team attitude as well as great motor skills.

Baseball and Softball players training with one of our personal trainers can expect to:

  • Improve running mechanics
  • Improve linear acceleration
  • Improve explosive power
  • Improve hand-eye coordination
  • Increase core strength

Athletes involved in our training program will be running the bases faster, throwing and hitting harder and greatly reducing the risk of injury. Baseball and softball are imbalanced in movement due to the repetitive explosive rotation all on one side of the body from throwing and hitting. This creates large imbalances in the core that effect from the hips all the way up to the neck and shoulders, which often times leads to acute or repetitive stress injuries. Baseball and softball also have high rates of knee injuries (ACL, MCL, PCL, LCL and meniscus). Through proper stabilization and strength training, we can help maintain balance in the body and greatly reduce the risk of injury.

"Reasons for the rise in arm injuries include children specializing in a single sport, or even position, at younger and younger ages, leaving them more prone to overuse injuries….simple rest, cross-training and stretching their throwing arm after they play can honestly prevent a lot of these injuries.”
