Playing professional baseball since 2003 I have learned the importance of keeping your body in the best physical shape possible. To compete at the highest level it takes a lot more than just physical talent. The importance of staying healthy while not breaking down can be the difference from someone making it and someone not because of injuries and the body breaking down. Unfortunately, as I was on the cusp of reaching my life long dream of making it to the big leagues my shoulder and hips gave out causing me to not be my best and eventually get shoulder surgery. In my mind it was going to be no big deal get the surgery and come back in 8-12 months and be right back where I left off. Unfortunately it was not that easy!! I made my first attempt to comeback in the summer of 2010 while playing in the Atlantic league. After just 2 starts I realized I came back a little too soon and my body and shoulder where just not ready for top notch competition yet. But to me it was very frustrating because off all the hard work I put in and what I thought was getting into top shape.
I came back to Reno in September of 2010 with questions of hanging them up in my head but I knew deep down inside that I still had a lot left in my shoulder and body. Luckily for me that is when I saw Marc Digesti out at a Reno High fall baseball practice. Needless to say looking back on that day it is the day that saved my life!! I have trained with some of the best trainers in the country in San Diego and after working with Marc aka “bubba” he is no doubt on a whole new level when it comes to getting the body to WORK!!! What I first noticed about Bubba is his passion and love for what he does! Not only is he the most knowledgable trainer I have worked with when it comes to logic and how to get your body to work together; but knowing he cares and wants to see you succeed and reach your goals just as bad as you do is something I respect and value tremendously!! After just 2 months of working with Bubba I lost 10% body fat while losing 25 pounds of fat and gaining 10 pounds of lean body muscle!!! And the best part about it was my strength in my hips and core allowed to to take all the pressure off my arm. I am in the best shape of my life today and I will continue to get better because of the knowledge Bubba has given me. He is not just a good fitness trainer he is a great person, a great teacher and a better friend! I have all the confidence in the world that I will one day reach my goal of playing baseball at the highest level and I will never forget how Bubba has made it possible. I highly recommend Bubba for anyone who is trying to live a healthier lifestyle or simply trying to get the edge on your competition as an athlete!!
