Core Training

"I’ve definitely tried my share of gyms and have not been happier with any of them like I am in Mark’s classes. He takes time to help you out and pushes you if he knows you can do better to get the results you want. since going to these classes I have slimmed down and toned my body faster than any other gym or training I’ve done in the past. i always look forward to going and am never bored since he changes up the exercises every time. its great!! I highly recommend you join!"

"Going to Mark’s class was never a chore, I always looked forward to going each time.  His classes were always fun and I liked how he was always there pushing me to work harder. It was nice to have the motivation and the benefits of one on one training. The exercises were changed up each time, and he gave us the option to do a more challenging exercise. It’s now great to have more energy as at first I would be out of breath just doing the warm up. I recommend Mark’s class to everyone who wants to get out there and tone their bodies and feel 100% better about themselves!

"Thanks for all your help with Alex. He had a really good time and enjoyed your coaching style. We are very happy we were able to do the off season training with you and will continue to train with you in the future. Many thanks.

Alex was picked for a major team and is looking forward to the baseball season."

"I got back from the California winter league a couple of weeks ago and was told to wait for a phone call to see if a contract can be worked out. I did well down there, I hit close to .360 and played the outfield. It was great! I was seeing the ball very well. Some independent league teams approached me and told me to wait on a phone call. I've been working on the hitting system you trained since I left Vancouver and it helped me out a lot for sure. The plot grip is nice to use against the power pitchers too. Thanks for your help."

"I have trained with keith since 2008. He has improved my game immensely. I depend on Keith to guide me to success. This past year I won the JPBL batting champ as a member of the Whalley Jr. Chiefs. I could not have won this without the expertise, knowledge and guidance of Keith and Sport Starz. Keith has also improved my pitching tremendously. In 2008 i was throwing around 60 to 65 mph. Now I was gunned by the scouts at 86-87 mph... Thanks For everything Keith!"

"Keith: My son Jaeden Reid (tall boy / Mosquito / lefty pitcher) has visited you a few times with Carson Chorpita. I just wanted to let you know that the tune up we had last Sunday really helped! We won the single "A" provincials. Jaeden was 15 for 19 with one walk and no strikeouts and had 21 RBI's in 6 games. He had a game winning / walk-off single in the bottom of the final inning in the championship game to win the Provincials. He was MVP in the finals and he also won the home run derby in the skills competition. Quite a weekend! Thanks for your teaching. We will see you a lot this offseason."

"Having seen the early construction stages for this facility, it is apparent that Keith has developed the site into a top-flight training facility. Keith has been an ardent supporter of the LMBA and a huge part of the BC Capitals, two time Canadian 50+ national champions. I am pleased to recommend both his facility and his services to all LMBA teams and players."

"My name is Brent Carmichael and I'm in my 3rd year of College at TRU while playing baseball for the Kamloops Sun Devils. I decided to take the summer 2011 off the TRU Program and work with a professional batting coach at Sport Starz. I worked out with Keith 3 times a week all summer in 2012 to improve enough to make an impression on the scouts at the showcase tournament in Oliver late August. It went very well with the scouts asking for a second look! I'm hoping to make the 2013 draft!

My time with Keith has helped me since day one. The ease of communication regarding all aspects of the game have helped me to excel and grow as an athlete and hitter. I would recommend Sport Starz training to baseball players & athletes of any age and look forward to training there myself for a very long time."

"I have been attending Keith's Clinics for about 10 years now. Over that time Keith and his team of Coaches have given me the tools that allowed me to compete at the highest level of Baseball. Not only did they teach me the fundamentals of the game, they also taught me the mental preparation. This allowed me to have an edge on the competition.

Over my 10 years, Keith has never talked down to me, he allowed me to express my opinion and only corrected me when I was wrong. Keith also gave me the most up to date techniques in core workouts, stretches, pitching, batting, fielding and base running. He also gave me the ability to take these drills home and practice them. The clinics were never crowded and there was always a lot of one on one time with the Coaches. As I got older, I was able to pass on the knowledge I gained from Keith to my Teammates and even some of my Coaches. Keith's Clinics are essential if you want to play at the next level of Baseball."

"I have known Keith for 6 years now and play with him on a men’s baseball team. Last Fall 3 of the ladies on my team worked with him for training. It its well worth the time & cost!

I highly recommend him for training for your girls. He has a resume a mile long and is also a catcher. He has an all-round training program which includes baseball/softball specific core training... over the years he has increased Sarah, Bailee and Ashleys throwing speed and accuracy."
- Merv Sandrel of Ball Park Sports Inc.

 

"A very special thank you for the considerable contribution that you made to the League by being willing to step forward and manage the Eagles for the last four years. People who play but do not manage probably have no idea of the time and commitment factor.
I hope that you are able to keep playing. You're a very tough out, and really understand the art and science of hitting."
- Ray Edger of the Surrey Royals
