What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I continually participate in the Positive Coaching Alliance's seminars and I study essentials of personal training to better understand and relate safe training practices to my students.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I was playing softball at a young age and the life-lessons and experiences that I have taken with me have impacted my life immeasurably. Trained by Ron Lefebvre in Orange County, CA for ten years, I learned every aspect of the game, including the mental and physical elements.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I train pitchers, catchers, and hitters. I usually conduct private lessons, but team clinics or group clinics are common, too.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
I advise a potential client to look for someone that has experience training youth athletes. I think a trainer that has actually participated in the specific sport, and not a closely related sport is best. Anyone that has experience with injury prevention and knowledge of physiology is best.
