My expertise is understanding human movement. The name Biomechanics sounds very complicated but it just means the study of the human body and how it moves, think of me as “the body guy”. Before I recommend any swing change I first assess how your current movement works. I understand how to get optimal results through the swing body connection and how to prevent and recover from injury. I use state of the art technology to measure your swing beyond what the naked eye is capable. In combination with assessing how your body naturally moves I will provide a clear understanding of how YOUR swing should look and feel. You will be surprised at how much more cooperative your body will be to change, when the change itself is complementary to how your body wants to move. The best part of my job is finding the core strength of a player’s movement to allow them to perform at a level they didn’t think possible.
