Is It For You?

Is Remote Coaching for You?

As a remote consultant I design baseball specific programs based off of the information that you send me in the form of pictures, videos and questionnaires.  Once I gather and study all of these vital pieces of information I then build a program based on your specific needs and goals.

The programs I put together are really good and they are backed by some scientific principals.  But they are only worth the piece of paper that their printed on if the program isn’t executed properly.  All I do is supply players and coaches with the WHAT, HOW and WHEN while trying to do my best of explaining WHY.  Its then up to the coaches and players to execute the program by giving it the time and effort it needs to work.

If you need you a trainer with you in the gym to make sure that you show up and work hard then this type of training will NOT work for you.

If you have the discipline to show up to the gym and put in the effort then this type of coaching will work for you.  If you supply the TIME & EFFORT while being able to COMMUNICATE and LEARN then there is no reason why remote coaching shouldn’t work for you.

TIME & EFFORT

This one is simple.  You need to make sure you have the time in your schedule to do the training.  I’m not going to ask that you train 7 days a week for 3 hours a piece.

When you do the training the effort level has to be there.  You can’t just simply check off the exercises knowing that there’s no way for me to know for sure if you did the exercises.  Again I am not asking that you have to full out every time you hit the gym to the point that you’re throwing up or passing out.  In fact I don’t want either of these things to happen.  But it’s not going to be easy because I am going to get you to do things that you aren’t very good at in order to bring up your weakness’ as an athlete.

Time and Effort are two thing of the most important commodities that any athlete has because we only have so much of either one.  This is the reason why I put together a program based on your wants and needs so that we don’t waste time and/or effort.

COMMUNICATION

Putting in the time and effort in the weight room is great but if you don’t know how to do the exercises and can’t perform them properly then you will not see any improvements and in a lot of cases you will get hurt.  The only way we can avoid this is to communicate.

Since this relationship is going to be remote we really have to communicate to make up for the fact that we won’t be seeing each other in person.  This means lots of e-mail, phone calls, texts and video’s.

I will be doing my absolute best to communicate what you have to do and why you need to do so that you buy into the program as well.  Through articles and webinars I hope to teach you what you need to know in order to be successful now and into the future.

Communication is a two-way street so I need to hear back from you on a regular basis so that I can answer your questions and so that I know that you know what your supposed to be doing.

LEARN

The athletes that have the most success are those that take ownership into their training.  In order to do this you have to learn what’s going on.  You don’t have to know everything on a deep level that requires a university degree in this field but you should have an idea.  If you truly want to play at the highest level you need to learn as much as you can about your body so that you can continue to grow as an athlete.

My job is to provide you with the information that you need to know as we go along.  Your job is read/watch what I send you so that you can take this information with you for the rest of your baseball career.

Is it for you or your team?

If you can put the time and effort while also be committed to communicating and learning then this type of training is for you.  The fact that it costs a fraction of what a coach in person would cost you per hour who is not likely to have the same level of expertise makes it a no brainer.
