Elite pitchers focus on their motion, not their results.

When a pitcher’s results are unacceptable, they adjust their motion. Their motion’s efficiency, functionality and sustainability becomes only as good as their most acceptable last pitch result.
For any pitcher to distinguish themselves, they become more efficient than other pitchers, make their movements more functional than other pitchers and show greater sustainability than other pitchers. 
Pitchers who make efficiency, functionality and sustainability their goal are offered more next-level opportunities than pitchers who live and die by their last pitch result. 

Efficient – A pitcher’s organized and systematic movements waste no energy.
- Efficient pitchers use their front leg lift to produce lower body balance and their core rotation to trick your body into producing unbelievably exceptional results.

Functional – Rather than whether a pitcher’s motion looks right, the best pitchers design their motion to effectively use their core to produce their results.
- Pitchers with a core-driven approach magically produce next-level results and, because they realize they can’t produce better results than they do through their core-driven delivery, they stop trying to make their motion look the way someone else says their motion should look. 
Sustainable – The elite pitchers know how to maintain their results from one pitch to the next and from season to season.
- These pitchers use their efficient and functional core-driven responses to simply and systematically maintain their results.
I turn inefficient, dysfunctional and unsustainable arm-driven deliveries into an efficient, functional and sustainable core-driven motions.  Contact me to show the pitchers you know what I can do for them.

Ever wonder what differentiates an exceptional pitcher from everyone else... well, wonder no more!

Ever wonder what differentiates an exceptional pitcher from everyone else... well, wonder no more! 

A Core-Driven Motion - The answer is quite simple. Elite #1 MLB Starters and multiple year Cy Young winners use their lower body for balance.  Their lower body balance keeps their arms uninvolved with their balance and lets them use their lower body rotation to move their throwing arm into an exceptional and easily repeated release window.

A Common Arm-Driven Motion - Some correctable movement causes a weight shift.  To offset your weight shift, you use your arms for balance. Worst yet, using your arms for balance stops any lower body rotation, delays your throwing hand into release and signals your Team that you're extremely replaceable.

Pitching is a balance sport.
A lot of balance and a little effort defines your core-driven motion and results. The balance that produces a core-driven delivery occurs at the top of your front leg lift. At the top of your front leg lift, our 5 pitching competencies put your body in a position where gravity becomes a non-factor and your lower body becomes your primary source of balance. In fact, what separates your core-driven motion from any arm-driven delivery is your lower body balance. Our 5 pitching competencies focus on and teach you how to use your legs and hips for balance.
To elevate your arm-driven motion into core-driven delivery, ask for our help.
