What are the athletes saying?

Richard Schenck (aka Teacherman)Hitting coach to Aaron Judge, Kerry Carpenter, and many more MLB players.

I had a chance meeting with AJ in 2019 when we crossed paths in a facility in Phoenix. He had stopped playing and was currently training players. Over time I was able to help him understand HLP better through video. Then, I made a trip to Phoenix to work with a player, I had some extra time, so I offered to go to his facility to work directly with him and some of his players. We made great progress that night, and from that point forward he has been producing very nice productive high level swings. AJ is also quite knowledgeable about Strength & Conditioning. The combination of his S&C knowledge and his HLP knowledge make him the best swing trainer in Arizona. If your goal is to reach your potential, I highly recommend AJ

I personally feel optimal has prepared me in the field of baseball athleticism. It’s not just strength but it’s explosive. I also love the mobility stuff. My mobility and taking care of my body from a recovery prospective has definitely grown in a positive direction.

Have been remote with OPP for almost two months, and it is exactly what I need to fulfill my potential. Coach AJ is a true professional at what he does and he is real about everything. Loving OPP so far.

I have trained with OPP for the past 4 years and seen unparalleled growth in and out of the weight room. Their knowledge, application style and environment remotely or in house is the best in the country. I have thrown & hit at a lot of the top facilities in the country and none compare to the results seen then OPP! I can't thank him enough for helping my own career but all of the athletes in our facility and their growth in and out of the weight room. If you want some of the best training in the country look no further!

We were looking to get some additional training for my 16 year old son who has some very lofty Baseball goals. We were referred to OPP by a coach that my son respects and decided to reach out to AJ. From the very first communication I was so impressed with his level of detail and knowledge. We live in Washington state so chose the remote training. I was a little nervous about how this would work with a teenager and so far away. I am blown away since it has more than worked for my son. AJ communicates daily providing coaching and is very attentive to form and teaching new skills. We have already seen some amazing results in my sons metrics and this is all because of the program AJ designed for him. If you are looking to take your game to the next level this is the place to do it! Thank you AJ

Never had a coach so dedicated to making me better before. OPP’s attention to detail and constant communication makes me feel like I’m working with my coach in the gym even though I’m a remote athlete.

Gavin SmithHigh School Athlete

I’ve trained with OPP for 5 months and have never improved so fast in my life. Most definitely would recommend Optimal Power Performance training to anyone that aspires to be a great athlete.

Collin SavageCollege Athlete

AJ is a stellar coach. I came into OPP 8 months ago as a 170 lb pitcher that never threw above 83 mph. After working with AJ and his excellent nutritionist Kaleb, I now throw above 90 mph and weigh 195 lbs. Easily the best baseball training location I've ever been to. I highly recommend.

Damian TillieCollege Athlete

Training with Optimal Power Performance has allowed me to play at the collegiate level. Going from a junior topping 81 to a senior up to 89 and hitting 90 as a freshman year of college AJ has provided the framework to get me where I am now. Throughout my 3 years with OPP I have continuously made strides both on the weight room and on the field. I couldn’t be happier with my decision to train with Optimal Power Performance.

Thomas DeBonvilleProfessional Free Agent

Been going here for a couple years now, great environment and great training. Highly recommend OPP to any athlete that wants to get better and work hard.

Robert WeerCollege Athlete

Working with OPP has been amazing for me. It’s given me a new understanding of training and prepared my body to compete better than ever. I recommend to anyone that is serious about getting better.

Cade FletcherCollege Athlete

OPP is without a doubt the best training experience I have ever been apart of. I have done both remote training and in person. In remote training I have always received high quality instruction and answers to any questions I have in a very detailed and timely manner. However, I highly recommend everyone interested to find a way to come train in person. In one summer of in person work my strength, power, throwing and swing have all improved astronomically thanks to the culture that has been founded at OPP. When you're surrounded everyday by dudes who want to challenge you and watch you succeed, you are guaranteed results. OPP has changed the entire trajectory of my baseball career and I will be forever grateful that I chose to work with them.

Jacob PipercicCollege Athlete

Without a doubt, the best training regimen I’ve received from any coach. Worth every penny. AJ is always quick to respond when I have a question and helps me to be my very best in the weight room day in and day out.
