All I can say is booked next session right away. I was please with his meet and greet session he is very informative of what needs to be worked on and what is expected

My son really enjoyed his baseball session with Will. He's knowledgeable and super positive. Will knows his stuff and works really well with high school aged athletes. Would definitely recommend and look forward to future sessions. Excellent coach!

I was looking for a safe place for personal training and found it with William. Private sessions in a well maintained space means I don't have to worry. He is also a wonderfully knowledgeable and enthusiastic coach who has helped me improve my strength and fitness already in the first few months.

William is a great coach. Encouraging and attentive. Always making sure I’m using the proper technique in order to avoid injury. I’m very pleased.

Coach Will is the best!

William is knowledgeable, personable, and great at what he does. It's a pleasure to work with him. Additionally, he's committed to a HAES approach and I wouldn't want to work with any other kind of coach.

I first started working out with Will after my husband had been working with him for a couple of years. We started out with a few tandem sessions and then I started working out with him on my own. Will is very knowledgeable and able to adapt his sessions based on your specific goals. He knows how to progress through the exercises with a focus on form and technique. As a physical therapist, I appreciate his understanding of muscle anatomy and optimal muscle activation for both strengthening and conditioning. I would highly recommend him to anyone who’s looking to get into shape or if you’re looking for sports training. Definitely a 5 star rating!!

Will has been my coach for the last two+ years. I started working out with him to prepare myself for the army reserves and with his help, was able exceed my physical fitness goals. Great guy, knows his stuff, measures progress and personal improvements are evident. He's been so great that now my wife has been going to his training sessions for tandem sessions. His focus, dedication and flexibility for scheduling make him a great trainer. Would absolutely recommend him to everyone!

You were completely amazing! I loved every minute of our session!!

Even through a video session he is concerned with correct movement/correct form and calls is out consistently.

Coach has been a great influence on my 12 y o son. He is learning and understanding the game better than ever before. He is also exhausted after an intense hour of training with Coach. Thanks Coach!

I had only one session so far which was awesome. Coach Will covered all essentials of baseball including throwing, batting, fielding and running and struck a perfect balance by explaining cues to look out for and getting right into the action. I would highly recommend training with him!

Great job, Coach Will! I feel like a whole new athlete.

Wonderful, encouraging coach who knows how to give us an efficient work out.

Coach William is a great trainer and will keep you motivated in reaching your goals! I've been with him for over two years and he's flexible with scheduling and location. I've never been stronger in my life. Just schedule a session and he'll help you point in the work.

Will is awesome!!!!

Will is the best!

I’ve been with Will for a couple of years. He’s knowledgeable and encouraging. He is attentive to particulars which is important for those of us with some physical limitations. Ive been with several trainers before and by far he is the best.

Knowledgeable and attentive and doesn’t let up. At all. Ever. Just what I need.

Will is a fantastic trainer and has gotten me motivated and in great health over these last 2.5 years. I highly re immense him.

Awesome first workout! Looking forward to more and getting stronger :)

I was impressed with how Coach William had specific and effective training for each area that our young player was working on. We will be booking some follow ups soon.

Coach William is a quality teacher. Yes, he is very knowledgeable about hitting, but most important, he knows how to explain hitting technique to a 13 year old in a way that is understandable and effective. He broke down my son's swing into parts and gave excellent tips for working on certain aspects of the swing. He explained every step of his swing and diagnosed areas which needed work. I can tell that William is an excellent coach; enthusiastic, personable, knowledgeable, patient and definitely cares about improving baseball skills. I definitely recommend William H.

He was great with the kids. They really enjoyed the session and learned a lot

My son learned a lot in just one session!
Coach Williams is a great teacher!

Great with basketball and baseball. Great guy! Great with kids! Patient and encouraging.

Will was excellent. My 9 year old needed to learn how to play the game from scratch and Will breaks it down into components so that he can understand but also develop good habits from the start. His rapport is excellent while still holding expectations. Highly recommend him.

Coach William was amazing. He was patient with my young son and all of his energy. He also taught my son more baseball skills in one hour than my son has ever learned!! I would recommend him to anyone!

Coach was great. Very patient and my child liked his approach

Great teacher!

My son said it was really hard, and really good

I can't believe how far my kids have come along in Baseball with Coach William's help. We saw immediate improvement as quickly as the first session. If you or your kid needs help, there is no question... Go with Coach William!!

Really knowledgeable. Really good with kids.

Coach William was awesome! Definitely worth every penny. Over one session I felt my game improve a lot. The skills and pointers I was able to recieve I can keep developing and working on now. I would definitely recommend anybody who is looking for a coach to try coach William.

Coach Will is giving my 12 year old son and his friend baseball lessons. He is really patient, gives clear instructions and really encourages the kids. We are already seeing improvements through them learning new techniques, both of the children are enjoying the classes. I high recommend Coach Will.

After one session, Coach William was able to improve my son’s understanding of the game and increase his interest in the game. My son looks forward to continuing his work with Coach William and I would encourage using him to anyone interested in improving their skills.

My kids Gabriel and Alex (11 and 10) had a great session with Coach William.

My son came home from the first session and told his Dad, "I learned a lot and my coach is nice. " He then continued to explain all the tips and skills he had been taught. He is looking forward to learning some more from Coach Will next week. Worth every penny.

Coach William is a great coach. My son learned a lot on one session. He's definitely ready for another session!!!

Coach William is awesome. First session absolutely exceeded my expectations. I did not expect to learn as much as I did after only one workout. Super excited to get back out there for the remaining sessions.

(no details provided)

Coach William really helped my son and pointed out that he needs more confidence! Will be setting up his next session ASAP

We have had one lesson so far and my son is excited about continuing. He used some of the things he taught at baseball practice and my son had a renewed confidence in his pitching.

Coach Will is outstanding. He is easily relatable which would make the experience fun for everyone, and he seems to really know what he is talking about when it comes to basketball, with meaningful tips and drills. I would definitely recommend him to anyone.

Coach Will is awesome. My daughter has only had two sessions thus far but her new skills are already being put to work in her traveling team tournaments. Coach Will is very flexible on session dates and times which makes life a LOT easier for busy parents!

Coach William is Awesome. 👍🏿👍🏿

Coach William is an excellent coach. He has inspired and improved my daughter's skills greatly. His lessons are full of energy and you can see he has a passion for the game. My 9 year old has improved vastly in just a few lessons. Highly recommended coach.

Excellent one on one coaching from William. Really connected with my son creating a program tailored to his needs. Great drills and tough one on one play with other players.

Coach William is remarkable! My 13 year old was so inspired, learned a ton, walked away from his first session with a full list of drills to work on. His sincere love and expertise and commitment of the sport and of coaching was far and above what I was expecting. He is a gem, the real deal.

Great coach with patience, taught me a lot in one session.

Coach Wil is doing a great job with my son teaching him basics and instilling a love of the game.

Coach William did a great job for my son's basketball training.
Thank you for your teaching.i appreciate it.

First session went great and Coach William not only worked on athleticism, but also communication!

My son loved training with Coach William. He's trained with a few other private coaches over the years and said that Coach William was by far the best! From a parent's perspective, Coach William was accommodating, on time, positive and flexible. Awesome experience!

I mean this is our first time on coachup and first day, was great and hoping it would continue. ....

Good guy, good coach, lost patience when my 6 yr old son was not showing the enthusiasm he wants. He expressed that once to me during the session, in front of my son, which I felt was inappropriate. I believe William would be a very good coach for someone who is very serious about the game.

Coach William had a great understanding of football and techniques that a new player needs to know for tackling, route running, and throwing. He was well prepared with great drills

Overall, I had great first session with Will. It was a group setting - which I hadn't expected but it motivated me more to work harder. He had us do some warm up exercises, followed by plenty of ball handling drills with two basketballs that exposed me to some of my weaknesses. Afterwards, we worked on drills with one ball and shooting followed by off the ball shooting. I'm looking forward to future sessions to continue learning more.

Coach William did a great job with our 13 year-old son. He incorporated a nice mix of drills to improve shooting and ball-handling. It was a challenging workout but our son really enjoyed the practice and the facilities. We will definitely be scheduling additional sessions with Coach William in the future!

Coach Will was a pleasure to work with. He assessed my skill level and we worked up from there. He is a great listener, patient, and very encouraging. I've learned more about my game after only one session with Will. I'm eager to improve my game and get in great shape in the process. Looking forward to the more sessions with Will. I definitely recommend Coach Will to any athlete.

Coach Will is a fantastic basketball coach. He's not just some guy who is good at the game -- he is literally a high school basketball coach so he knows the way to improve players of all skill levels. The improvement that I saw after 1 session was shocking. As I am relatively new to the game, I wasn't sure what to expect, but I was highly impressed with the skills that I was shown in our first session. In addition to our training, Coach Will also showed me several drills, tailored to what I need to improve on, that I can work on in my free time. I'm very excited to work with Coach Will in the future to improve my game, and I would highly recommend him to anyone feeling the same way.

Great session. Coach really knows his stuff and is very patient. Very valuable coaching session. Would definitely recommend.

Coach Williams is great! He will tailor to your needs, regardless of your age, skill level and group size! I was relatively new to baseball at a late age, but he gave me a good overview of the game and skills to enjoy the game!


Coach Will was great. Prior to our lesson, I sent him an email with our goals. He certainly met all of our expectations. The drills were great and my 11 year old son worked hard yet had fun, which was exactly what I wanted. We will definitely be booking another session with Coach Will!
