More About Coach Michael

I have my BS degree in Exercise Science and I have a MS degree in teaching Physical Education and possess my New York State and New Jersey State Teacher Certification in Physical Education and Health Education. I currently teach Physical Education/health grades PreK-2nd grade in Woodland Park, NJ. I have coached athletes from ages of 8-14 years old and have taught private pitching lessons for 7 years. I have done personal training with clients aged from 12-18. I am American Red Cross CPR/AED certified, NASPE (National Association of Sport and Physical Education) Certified Physical Best Health-Fitness Specialist.

I played 4 years from 2009-2013 and won a CAA baseball Championship at Division I Towson University in 2013. I won 10 games my senior year at Towson and received All-CAA Tournament Team Award. I also received All-Tournament team in the NCAA baseball tournament at the UNC Chapel Hill Regional. I signed a professional contract to pitch in the Atlanta Braves Minor League Organization. After two years of rehabilitation from shoulder surgery, I played one season of professional independent baseball.

We will go through proper ways to ensure good pitching mechanics and break them down step by step through specific drills that I have been doing ever since I had my own lessons with a former major leaguer. We will work on understanding how the body works more efficiently by using upper/lower body separation to maximize force output to allow for maximum velocity while safely protecting the arm/shoulder. I can also give tips and lessons on how to properly weight train and condition the body the correct way. Lessons are for 30 mins and are discounted for $35 for the first session.

Client Reviews

Michael was excellent at balancing the physical and mental part of pitching during his session. He was able to clearly and effectively communicate with my 11 year old, so he understood why they were doing each exercise/drill. My son enjoyed working with him, I would highly recommend him.

Very knowledgeable and children friendly!

Coach Michael is a very good coach! He shows great understanding of what he’s speaking about and has a plethora of knowledge to back him up 👍🏽.

Awesome pitching lesson. Mike was great breaking fundamentals into small chunks for my 7-yo. Definitely recommend!

My 60 year old father worked with Coach Mike to perfect his pitching technique for his playoff game. He really enjoyed his session and has since recommended Coach Mike to his friends. He said he had a lot of useful techniques and he felt like it made a huge difference in his performance on the field.

Coach Mike was awesome! My boys instantly liked and felt comfortable with him.
We actually saw positive changes in our sons game with just one lesson.
We are looking forward to working with Coach mike again and again,

Great coach! My son really enjoyed his session with Coach V and immediately worked at incorporating what he learned. He can’t wait for the next lesson.

Coach Michael really helped my son get back to the technique he was missing in just one session. I think over time my son will get more skill and proper form working with him.

Great guy an focus on getting the kid better

Coach Mike did a great job with my 11 yr. old son. He is very positive & encouraging and communicates well when teaching. Highly recommend.

Our son is a high school junior and met with Coach Mike to work on his pitching, and also to get advice for training and workouts over the summer while he prepares for showcases. He liked Mike a lot and thought he was very knowledgeable.

Coach Mike had a great session with my son. He kept things fun, but was also able to get him to think about a couple of important things that make a big diffence in accuracy. Very impressed with Coach Mike and would recommend him in a second.

My 9 year old son had his first lesson with coach Mike this week and he was exhilarated! My son pitches in his little league team and needed some help to improve his velocity and aiming. Mike showed him some good tactics to use his body and legs differently to create more efficient weight transfer and I can already see that he's pitching better with so much more confidence! Mike was very quick and diligent in responding to all your questions and accommodating in scheduling. My son really wants to train with him regularly and that's our plan!

Mike is a professional, very patient and a great teacher. My son has done baseball leagues for several years and the lesson immediately improved his playing. The lesson is very informative and interactive, Mike is always challenging the athlete to see their potential. I learned a lot by just watching. Highly recommend.

Just had our 1st session with coach Michael. Was extremely happy with Michael’s knowledge in regards to all the different aspects of pitching (mechanics, ball grip, types of pitches, etc). Already scheduled a 2nd session and plan to continue with Michael after that. Highly recommend him for any age level.

Coach Mike is great! My son is in the second grade and needed help with the fundamentals of baseball. Coach Mike is patient and gives great tips to help young players develop the proper skills of learning baseball. He helps get kids out of forming bad habits and tries to build up the self confidence young kids need with such a difficult sport. I highly recommend coach Mike for your next training sessions.

It was great to work with coach Michael for pitching lesson. He developed a quick rapport with my son, a high school freshman. He liked the fact that the coach was able to break down the process into small steps. He also kept my son fully engaged by asking good questions and self-assessment process.

Coach Michael was very courteous, patient and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend him to anyone seeking a baseball trainer. My son was extremely pleased with Michael!!!

Michael is a great coach who takes the time to explain what to do and why you're doing it. Michael has shown great patients with my son, while continually challenging him with both questions and corrections. My son has responded well to Michael's coaching and we have seen major improvement. I would recommend Michael to anyone who's looking to get better at baseball.

Coach Michael was great. In no time at all he taught my son the basic mechanics of the wind up in a way that had him throwing harder and with better control. He’s also a nice guy— patient, thoughtful, encouraging without babying . I highly recommend him.

Coach Michael was everything you would expect from a coach and more. After the first session with him, I am confident that we made the right decision in choosing him. He was very thorough throughout the entire lesson. My boys felt no pressure and left with confidence. I recommend coach Michael to everyone who wants learn new skills and improve the ones you already have.
Robert M,

Great first session for my son. Mike was patient and knowledgeable. Looking forward to our next session.

Coach Mike was extremely knowledgeable and did some great work with my son. Asked some questions, took a look at his swing and got started to focus on the technique to help built a better and more powerful swing. My son was extremely excited after the first lesson and he asked me when he can see Coach Mike again - looking forwarding to continuing the great work.

Coach Michael has been giving my grandson pitching and hitting lessons. As I watch him I can see how easily he communicates and demonstrates baseball skills. My grandson has learned a great deal and enjoys coach Michael tremendously. He has the ability to teach not just coach. Highly recommend.

Mike was great with my son. He fixed his swing. His is advice and training was spot on!
I would highly recommend him and will continue to work with him.

Coach Michael was awesome. My son loves him! He took his feedback and immediately made some changes. Look forward to working with him again

Mike was great with my 11 year old son. We scheduled a session to work on hitting. Mike made some adjustments right away and was great in communicating with my son. We will be going back for more lessons.

My son had difficulties with his mechanics, coach Mike helped him out and got his confidence back. Highly recommended.

Coach Michael does a great job. My son is 13 and he has been struggling a bit with his hitting after just one session he's shown improvement. I highly recommend coach Michael.

Coach Michael is an incredible coach and I highly recommend him. He has taught my son so many skills that my son is using already. We see a real difference in his pitching and confidence. Coach Michael is the real deal.

Coach Michael was great!! Very knowledgeable! Took his time and explained everything. I would definitely recommend him !!!

Our Son's first session with Coach Michael was great. He was very knowledgeable, professional and approachable. We could see an improvement in confidence and pitching form right away. Jason is very excited to continue learning from him.

Coach Mike did a very good job with my 12 year old son. He listened well to what Alex was struggling with and took his time and patience to work with him on it. 1st lesson but so far so good!

Michael has a friendly yet disciplined approach toward instruction which our son responded very well to. Michael offers continuous guidance, builds skills through repetition, and also places emphasis on confidence building which is so important to a young boy (our son is 9) who is still learning the sport. We highly recommend Michael!

My son is very happy with what he has learned from Michael. Great to bring pitching to the next level.

Mike was great. Was able to quickly diagnose changes that needed to be made and started to implement simple steps the he can build on. My son is looking forward to learning more from Mike.

Mike knows the aspects of pitching and the game of baseball very well. He is very knowledgable and can pass on this information to others with success.
