“Marc Helps Pitcher Get Rid of Pain, Lose Weight, and Get Invited to the US Olympic Team Tryouts!”

"Thanks to Marc! I was able to get in peak shape in just a few months. I started Marc's program in the summer 2002 after my freshman year as a Purple Ace. At that point in my career, I was playing in a lot of pain because of a back fracture in high school but thanks to Marc; by the end of the summer, I was feeling great and pitching with no pain. It was truly amazing. I was also able to drop from 24% to 17% of body fat. Every aspect of my game improved and I was invited to Chula Vista for the United States Olympic Softball Team Tryouts. Thanks again Marc! The workouts have been fun with a lot of sport-specific variety. Thank you!

“NPF Co-Pitcher of the Year and Olympic Strike-out Queen
 Uses Marc’s Secrets to Boost Her Game!”

"I feel personally that to be the best athlete you can in your sport, you need to have a solid foundation and that is what I have received from the workouts from Marc Dagenais. I not only feel I have gotten stronger physically but also more flexible and more agile because all the workouts that I have been given have included every one of those elements. Also, from a pitcher's perspective, it's nice to know I only have to worry about throwing the next pitch knowing that the rest of the stuff is taken care of. I would recommend Marc's services to anybody; I think it's absolutely wonderful because they focus on building a complete athlete. It's wonderful. I have been really excited to be able to use it. Thank you!"

"Marc Dagenais has been a member of the Senior Women's National Softball Team as Strength and Conditioning Coach for the last 2 years. Marc's background in the sport of softball allows him to personalize the programs not only for the needs of the sport but also for the needs of each player.

Marc is passionate about his work, he seeks newer and better ways to get the results necessary, he seeks input from the coaches and players with respect to what the deficits are and how to go about strengthening them. When Marc started this journey with the Women's National Softball Team we had 3 areas that we wanted to see initial improvements. 1) Functional Foundation 2) Injury prevention and 3) Strength and Speed. Marc's attention to these areas along with the athletes belief in the system have allowed for noticeable improvements in a short period of time. Well done Marc and thank you."

"Pitcher Boosts Pitching Velocity and Impresses Her Coach!"

"By Christmas, I switched to your program and at the start of the season my coach told me she thought I came back in the best shape of anyone on the team, I looked stronger than she had ever seen me, and that she couldn't have been more pleased with the work I had done in the off season. I have to admit that I feel stronger than I ever have. I've picked up a few miles/hour on my pitches - and I can now throw the low rise, which I couldn't manage to do last season.  For next season I plan to time it all out properly and get everything in before the season starts."Lauren Peloquin

"Pitcher Gets Impressive Results Working with Marc! "

"I met Marc Dagenais and I realized I was only functioning at 50%. With Marc's help, I was able to harness much more of my potential. The six months that I was under Marc's guidance were the most intense, but rewarding, of my softball career. Marc devoted a great deal of energy to structuring a program for me. I was not assigned a generic set of drills and exercises based on my position as a pitcher, but by observing me in a game and practice situations, Marc was able to pinpoint my weaknesses. The program he composed included cardio, weights, stretching, and technique drills designed to make me a stronger more balanced player and dominant pitcher.

My wrist snap was very weak. Marc worked very hard with me using unique drills and exercises to strengthen it and make it more effective. It got a lot better over a few months and I started being a lot more dominant as a pitcher. Marc told me to use my muscle memory and remember how it felt. Often he would get me to close my eyes during a drill so I could concentrate on the feel of it and program my muscles to remember it. Today I can feel when my hip is lagging behind or I am being lazy with my wrist snap.

Marc also taught me that to be a dominant pitcher, the mental part is really important. One of the first things I learned about my mental game is never say never, and the word cannot is blaspheme to Marc. He was the constant motivator, never letting me be discouraged, and always assuring me I was the greatest. People are always placing limits on themselves and Marc believes we are limitless. Marc encouraged me to set goals, both long and short term. With Marc's Help, I was able to take control of my mental game.

As a result of the time I spent working with Marc, I became a much better pitcher. Every aspect of my game was improved. The physical portion: my technique, strength, and endurance. Also the mental portion: strategy, confidence and readiness.

"Softball Team Turns Into Baserunning Machine After Marc's Workshop "

"My experience with Marc was nothing short of outstanding. Marc ran 2 hours worth of excellent and inovative drills. As for the presentation all I can say is that Marc kept 12 young girls running and working for 2 hours with smiles and laughter the entire time. I didn't hear one complaint.The clinic was better and more than expected. One of the focus points of the clinic was quickness. We incorported some of the drills and routines into our normal practices. This teams is by far the best baserunning team I've ever coached. On more than one occasion I have an umpire come up after a game and tell me how well he thought our team ran the bases. I've never had that happen before."marysville team training
