A $112,000 Scholarship, 100 mph Fastballs, and a 6.54 60-yard Dash

BRX Performance on June 6, 2017

Do you or your son want to play college and professional baseball? Are you frustrated by your current level of recruitment?  Do you want to know how to improve your throwing velocity, speed, and power but aren’t totally sure how to train for it?

If any of the above resonates with you, I have good news.

My name is Brooks Braga, and I’m the co-founder and director of training at BRX Performance, a sports performance facility that specializes in baseball-specific strength and conditioning. We work with several MLB and minor league baseball players from the Yankees, Angels, Rangers, Marlins, Padres, and Giants organizations. We also train athletes attending or committed to Louisville, Florida, TCU, Arizona St, Oregon St, and many more just looking to make it to the collegiate level. I’d like to share the details and specific exercises from the story at the top and get you to believe you can do it too.

Within one year of opening, we have already helped develop our first MLB baseball player, Ben Heller of the New York Yankees. Ben has reached 100 mph on numerous occasions since training with BRX, and calls working with us “The best decision he may ever make for his baseball career.” Here was his debut against the Baltimore Orioles on August 26th of this year:

Would you believe it if I told you he was the No. 3 pitcher on his high school team as a junior and threw in the low-80s?

…more on that in a future email.

Is the only thing available to you your school’s football-oriented strength and conditioning program that doesn’t understand the unique demands of a baseball player? Do you want to improve your 60-yard dash, throwing velocity, rotational power, and other baseball measurables?

If you answered yes to any of the above, you’ll be excited about our long-awaited project that is nearing completion. For the meantime, we highly encourage you to grab our completely free resource, the BRX Baseball Training eBook. Here’s a portion of what’s included:
