  • Baseball fit program with mike mcferran

    This summer, Hayner Academy Staff Member Mike McFerran (Pitching Coach Skidmore College) is offering a 5-week Baseball Fit Program at The Sports Barn. Come learn how to recover your body correctly with timely, purpose-filled workouts that will change the way you view baseball recovery. Learn why "taking a run to flush out the arm" is not enough to keep you performing at your best, or to protect you from injury. Perform high-intensity, fast-twitched exercises that use the same muscle groups in parallel movements to what your body does on a baseball field and walk away this summer with a wealth of knowledge about giving your body the best possible treatment in relation to baseball. All baseball players will benefit from this program. Pitchers and catchers – this program is essential!
