You probably didn't realize that you were born an athlete!!  Regardless of natural ability it takes many years for the elite athlete to evolve and reach their own athletic potential. B.A.S.E.S. stands for Balance, Agility, Strength, Explosiveness, and Speed (max velocity). The result of all five of these skills, applied together, is power. But you play a sport and your goal is to become an even better athlete and maximize your power!  As a result, you need to understand how to further develop and maximize all five skills, simultaneously and most efficiently, to realize your true athletic potential.You might not have been born with the natural gifts to become a professional baseball or softball player but become a B.A.S.E.S. athlete and you will undoubtedly improve your sport performance.

Guided by the foremost experts in sport, fitness, wellness, and nutrition, B.A.S.E.S. bridges the gap between science and application to provide you with:

  1. the necessary educational resource to learn what it takes to create a well-rounded elite athlete.
  2. strategic, personalized athletic conditioning programs for youth and high school athletes (ages 8-18).

  • Provide healthy and safe alternatives to damaging conditioning practices

Common problems athletes, parents, and coaches face:

  • Lack of knowledge of the significance athletic conditioning plays in the development and performance of a healthy youth athlete
  • No experience in athletic conditioning and therefore no knowledge or ability to educate and train youth athletes safely and effectively
  • Time constraints to create and deliver an effective training program
  • Most exercise programs are limited to just one philosophy - Yoga, Pilates, Plyometrics or Weightlifting.

Most programs focus on sport skills...how to throw a ball, how to catch a ground ball, how to swing. B.A.S.E.S. focuses on Athletic Skill Conditioning which will allow your body to execute the movements on the field much better. Failure to address and practice these Athletic Skills at a young age often results in many talented athletes being forced to quit playing a sport, either because of injury or the inability to compete against their peers at more advanced levels. B.A.S.E.S. recognizes the importance of age-appropriate athletic development at the youth level. The specificity of the B.A.S.E.S. Programs will aid in the reduction of injury and maximize the performance of youth athletes, giving them the opportunity to stay involved in sports longer.
