STRENGTH Coach POSITION

OUR STORY

OPP started out as an experiment in 2015 for the founder’s personal baseball career. This experiment was to test different training methodologies and player development strategies on a surplus of athletes to see what strategies would work best. Our founder Aj Arroyo, ended up collecting the data of hundreds of athletes during this process. At the time, he had no intentions of creating a baseball training company. He was just trying to figure out what works in the shortest amount of time possible for his own career. After his playing career came to an end in 2017, he decided to start coaching athletes full time. In 2019 he opened up our first location in Tempe AZ. It was there that he realized he could do something big. His goal was to create the first baseball facility that prioritized development over revenue. He knew what it was like paying for services that didn’t live up to the hype. So we have set out to be the change the industry needs and become the premium standard for baseball player development with our athlete first approach.

Since 2015 we have worked with well over 2,000+ baseball players and have been growing at a rapid rate since 2019. Our newest location is set up in Phoenix AZ with just under 7k sq ft of training space.

We have a unique culture at OPP that requires our team members to have an intra-entrepreneur mentality. Someone with a tremendous work ethic who has the motivation to accomplish their personal career goals and aspirations within our company.
