My name is Chris Schutt and I am currently a professional pitcher in the Minnesota Twins Organization. Recently I contacted Ron Munvez regarding his strength training and workout program. Like many professional athletes my full time job is to work out and to take care of my body. That being said I am always looking for new ways to help me achieve my peak level of performance. In order to perform at the professional level in any sport there is an extreme focus on strength and speed, but most importantly efficiency. The exercises I learned and focused on while working out at Tri-Fitness helped me achieve greater stability and body awareness. By focusing on working out ?core? muscles and opposing muscle groups my flexibility, balance, and power all increased dramatically. Ron is very knowledgeable about relating strength training to specific sports and activities and in the short time I have been working out at Tri-Fitness I have noticed significant gains in my pitching performance.
The most important thing I have taken from Ron over the course of my workouts is the idea that it is not just how hard you train but also how smart you train. You must work towards building strength in your core while helping your body?s individual muscles to work together. As athletes our goal should be to become as powerful as possible while still maintaining flexibility and stability. This idea of efficiency and core strength is on the cutting edge in all professional sports and should be used by any athlete looking to take their performance to the next level. Ron Munvez is truly a great teacher, motivator, and person. His teachings have helped me in my quest toward peak performance and I know that they will for you too!
