Mike Giovenco was drafted twice while training with Fastball USA including by the KC Royals in the 10th round.
Just wanted to let you know that we do nearly all the same arm care here as we did at fastball. We do numerous variations of all of the arm care on an everyday basis, and also we do ALOT of the flexibiltiy and pre workout warmups that we did at fastball. Fastball USA pretty much prepared me for pro ball, and currently I have over 100 innings on my arm this year, and I have to thank you for teaching me the importance of arm care. In the past, my arm would usually be in pain around this time of year, and I would be experiencing "dead arm". But currently my velocity is still sitting in the 90-93 range and topping around 95mph.
Once again, I just wanted to thank you for everything, and please continue to stress the importance of arm care, flexibiltiy, and good old fashioned hard work to the rest of the guys.
Our system not only works for the Youth, High School, and College players it also works for the Pro's.

Developing a Culture of Relentless hard workers
A MINDSET - It doesn't matter where I start it only matters where I finish!
The Secret is out........ How do we do it?
These results are a direct relation to relentless hard work, while using advanced training concepts NOT typically used by the rest of baseball/softball world.
We don't run poles, we don't move slow, and we prioritize mindset and intent as a way to lead our movement patterns.
This is NOT easy. Our students have committed themselves to sacrifice the time, the sweat, and the mental capacity to improve.
Our goal is to improve 1% each month. When you put together months and months of 1% improvement....magic begins to happen.
If your son or daughter isn't 'ALL IN' when it comes to self motivation and working hard......don't bother. Our culture is all about loving the work, loving the process almost more than we even love the game.
Does this describe your son or daughter? If so, then register for an Evaluation Session today.
