Champion Performance Bat Speed Program

A 6-Week Program To Enhance Your Baseball and Softball Bat Speed


At Champion, we've worked with hundreds of softball and baseball players, from youth, high school, NCAA to MLB All-Stars. We know what it takes to maximize your baseball and softball performance.

This 6-week program was specifically designed to help you enhance your hitting skills and strength. This program is a great add on accessory program to your existing strength or a stand alone option. This program is the perfect bridge for Hitting and sport coaches who are looking to merge the strength benefits into your hitting sessions and team training.

Over the next 6-weeks, your program will progress to ensure that you’re consistently challenged and working towards your desired goals and optimize your on-field performance and reduce your risk of injury.

We understand the swing, biomechanics and baseball/softball specific strength to enhance your swing and skill. Hitters and hitting coaches all have and instruct their own unique approach, stance and swings. We want to enhance that...

Which is why we have developed this bat speed program for players and coaches to bridge the strength and power and hitting! There is also an emphasis on injury prevention, as well as increasing your long term strength development.

This 6-Week Program To Help Develop Bat Speed is the bridge between Strength and Sport. This is one of the most comprehensive programs of its kind to help you reach your sport performance goals and help your long term development.

As a former professional player and coach, I've experienced a lot in the sport of baseball. As a player, I would get very frustrated with generic coaching cues:

- Use your legs more
- Load into your legs
- Stay loaded
- Don't drift
- Use your hips

That list can go on and on. But what do those even mean? How do you convey a better message to the athlete?

We built this program to help create some context to those standard coaching cues to help athletes and coaching communicate their messages better.

Throughout this program, we have included many exercises and drills that will let the hitter and athlete "feel" these movements. "Feel" these activations and begin to understand and develop kinesthetic awareness.

The program has been designed by Champion Coach Nick Esposito and Physical Therapist Mike Reinold, who together have an extensive background working with elite softball and baseball players. You'll follow a program based on the same ones we use with our collegiate and professional athletes.

We don’t just say “train like the pros.” We actually train the pros. We work with athletes of all ages included youth, high school, college, and professional athletes. We’ve worked with big leaguers from every MLB team, include World Series Champions, All-Stars, MVPs, and Cy Young winners. Our programs are all based on the programs that Champion’s Mike Reinold developed as Head Athletic Trainer and Physical Therapist of the Boston Red Sox and now Chicago White Sox and Northeastern University.

These programs that were developed by us are the same programs used throughout MLB right now by the tons of Big Leaguers.
