Through the instruction of the coaching team, I have jumped from throwing mid to upper 80’s to now sitting 92-94 while topping 96 mph in a game. And working with Coach Nick, I can now prioritize what is important in order to be the best.
I have gone from weighing 170 with okay metrics to now being 190 with metrics that I never dreamed of. I am now attending Duke University and hope to take the knowledge that I have learned with me and apply it into ACC baseball.
My velocity has increased from 88-91 T92/93 last year to 92-94 T95/96 this year. More importantly my arm and body have remained healthy.
Being a remote athlete at VeloU has been a successful experience due to the quick and educated responses of my remote coach and the overall clarity of the assigned workouts and drills.
From the small things like experience information to the major points like mechanics and strength, VeloU has allowed me to broaden my perspective on pitching and becoming a great baseball player.
Everyone is striving for the same goal while the excellent and ambitious coaches do everything they can, to help you reach this goal. The competitiveness in the air pushes you to another level and excels your game forward while learning new ways to help improve your game.”
Everyone there is always competing with one another and it pushes you to become the best version of yourself.
When I joined, I was only 130lbs and throwing 76-78 and hadn’t yet committed to a college. But now, after about 2.5 years, I'm 190lbs, throwing 92-95 topping 96, and playing in the minor leagues for the Tampa Bay Rays after being drafted in the 6th round of the ‘22 MLB Draft.
This is because it is likely the time when you begin a stream of taking actionable steps towards your goals.
Everyone is scared to do remote training because they believe it is a waste of time. However I promise you VeloU makes it worthwhile.
I am a remote athlete and personally work with Coach Sam and couldn’t love it any more. The app to follow your scheduling is very accessible and Coach Sam has helped me significantly. Not only are the coaches at VeloU super intelligent but they want what’s best for all their players.
With the technology and measurements taken weekly, if not daily, at VeloU the guess work in training is cut out of the equation, so the athlete knows if they are getting the most out of their training. Most importantly, the coaches on staff develop relationships further than just in the gym or on the field, as they are there for the person first and athlete second.”
VeloU is a great place to train and an even better environment to be in. VeloU has the best coaches and equipment necessary for me to get better. It has great athletes and trainers that make up an unmatched culture to train and get better in. VeloU is adjusted to your needs and helps make tremendous strides for improvement.
When I first started, not only was I immature physically, but I also did not understand what it took day in and day out to reach my goals. Learning from the staff and the athletes around me about discipline and focus was crucial to my career. I would not be where I am today without that guidance. I am grateful to everyone involved for all the help I’ve received over the years, and the relationships I’ve built during my time at VeloU.
I started going to VeloU in August of 2021. When I came for my initial eval I was topping 88 and sitting 81-84 after the first inning. I was also struggling with chronic back pain due to a herniated disc.
In just one off-season my back pain went away, my mechanics were much more efficient, and I was able to sit 89-93 for a whole game. Since training at VeloU I have assisted Poly Prep win 2 state championships in 2 years, pitched over 100 innings with little to no pain and earned a D1 scholarship.
I have seen myself increase from a mental standpoint 10 fold on breath, visualization, and routine. The coaches and staff there have implemented unique training formulas for me as soon as I report to them after each season. After baseline testing that we do year after year we have quantifiable data that shows how we have progressed in mechanical ranges of motion, strength aspects have increased, pitch metrics have increased, and above all, velocity has increased. Without Dr. Nicholas Serio and his supporting staff I would not have gotten to the big leagues without them.
