Heading into this off-season, I had a set of goals that I knew would require a higher level of strength training than I had ever trained at. I was making progress with my baseball team and my individual work, but I knew that I would need something else to help boost my performance to the level of a varsity baseball player. When I heard about SAA through a teammate, I thought that sport specific strength training could be beneficial to me. I went in for the evaluation and discovered a highly motivated group of coaches who push athletes with personalized workouts to capitalize on the athletes strengths while improving their weaknesses. I decided that SAA would be a good choice for my off-season training, and went in with mostly strength goals.
"My deadlift has improved by nearly 60 pounds since I began training at SAA and my squat has improved by over 40 pounds."
Immediately after I began training at SAA, I was very impressed with how much the coaches focused on each athletes individual goals. The workouts are always personalized with the intent of attacking my weaknesses, and the results have reflected this. My results halfway through the off-season have far exceeded my goals. My deadlift has improved by nearly 60 pounds since I began training at SAA and my squat has improved by over 40 pounds. These strength improvements have translated directly to the baseball field, as I have added 5 miles per hour to my fastball and 3 miles per hour to my exit velocity.
"I have added 5 miles per hour to my fastball and 3 miles per hour to my exit velocity."
Not only have I seen improvements in my strength, but other aspects of the game, such as my rotational speed, power output, and sprint speed have all seen big improvements this off-season. Overall, I would highly recommend SAA to any athlete like me who is serious about taking their performance to the next level.
