Hitting Development

“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.”

Pitching Development

Our pitchers undergo a thorough assessment process and receive individualized throwing programs tailored to meet them where they currently are in their career. For most, it's about velocity. For others, they may require segments of their training focused on command, pitch design, or live competition against our hitters. Rest assured, our pitchers have everything they need to maximize performance and recovery. Including Rapsodo and Stalker technology.

“When I first started training with OPP, I was fresh off getting released from a short 10 day stint in the frontier league. I was sitting 90-92 at the time. After following the programming, all of the hard work in the weight room translated to the field. This last season, I sat 94-96 touching 97. I’m still consistently seeing results. Can’t wait to see what this season has in store. Wouldn’t be where I am today without the help of OPP”

“The place of getting things done and doing it well. OPP helped me to become a better athlete and skilled baseball player, and has helped me to continue that growth beyond. If you wanna get better, go to OPP period!”

Isaac WerslandOklahoma Wesleyan University - .376 AVG / 25 HR / 70 RBI

What are the athletes saying?

“I came into OPP 8 months ago as a 170 lb pitcher that never threw above 83 mph. After working with OPP and their excellent nutritionist, I now throw over 90 mph (top 91.7) and weigh 195 lbs. Easily the best baseball training location I've ever been to. I highly recommend.”

Collin SavageCollege Pitcher

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.

Josh SaleTexas Rangers

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.

Carlos LaraCollege 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.
