Hitters Rx

Training the Complete Ball Player


The Hitters Rx Program is a complete off-season training protocol for baseball players.  It encompasses just about every aspect of a ball player’s game from hitting to strength, power and speed.  The program begins in early November and ends in late February, just before the beginning of the high school season.  It takes place in a collegiate setting, complete with a state-of-the-art weight room to help maximize training during the off-season.  Hitters Rx Program allows you to perfect your hitting and mechanics, while getting stronger, bigger, faster, all in one location with the latest in strength, mobility and speed training protocols.  The following is a brief summary of the schedule:

Hitters Rx operates in a “closed loop” environment where your strength coach and hitting instructor are working together allowing you to address any strength, mobility and flexibility deficits which could be causing energy leaks in your mechanics. Focusing on the principles of human movement, mobility and strength assists players to develop more ideal movement patterns, helping to efficiently transfer power up the kinetic chain and into the barrel.
