Hello~ My name is Steven Leppert. It depends on if you're looking for baseball or personal training. I am a former College All-American @ Jacksonville State University in Alabama, where I was named to their All-Time Team, captained them to the College World Series and played in the prestigious Cape Cod League. I am a former pro baseball player with the Reds Organization and oldest son of former Major League All Star catcher and lifetime MLB coach Don Leppert. I have been coaching and teaching for over 25 years. I concentrate on hitting, switch-hitting, bunting, pitching, throwing mechanics, base running, stealing bases, catching, infield and outfield play and game situations. If you become a regular client(s) I would like to attend some a game this season and see you play. I not only focus on the basics & fundamanetals, but their minsdet, attitude, and the cerebral (mental) approach to hitting, and the game itself.
I enjoy assiting people lead healthy lifestyles, and coaching and mentoring those from 5-82, whether it is with baseball, or personal training. I currently have a 5 yr old who I have switch-hitting, and a 61 yr old who I worked with for 2 years now who won the MVP and Most Improved Player at The Rockies Fantasy League Camp in 2019.
Coach Lep has done wonders working with our son. His confidence on field has improved tremendously. He has been able to take the skills learned in sessions with Lep directly on to the diamond and his game has improved by leaps and bounds. We will continue working with Coach Lep for sure.
Coach Steve is amazing! Very personable and a great coach. On day 1, he had my 6 year old in a more athletic stance and throwing the ball better than I've seen in years of coaching him myself. He also makes it fun with games to mix things up, all while teaching to have fun!
Steve is a caring and talented coach. My son loves every session with him and we would both highly recommend.
Lep is absolutely a professional and was a great experience for my son! I definitely received giving him a try!! :)
First, I try to assess their experience. Second, We simply play catch and I see how they throw and receive the ball. Third, I ask them to loosen up and run a bit. Then, depending on their position, we work on their strengths & weaknesses and how to improve them. In HS I started as a Freshman with 8 Seniors, played SS and Catcher. At JSU I played 3rd my Freshman year, C my sophomore year, and played CF my Junior Year. For the Reds I played 2nd, 3rd, SS, C, CF and even pitched a few innings. I was a lead off switch hitter, and once ran a 6.38 60. I have played every position at some level, and have a firm grasp on all. As far as pitcher's, once they turn 13-14 I turn them over to a qualified pitching coach. Growing up as the son of a Major Leaguer I saw many of the greats play, and was a sponge as a toddler until age 17 going to Three Rivers Stadium most every day.
Drafted twice, once out of H.S. (16th round) and College (5th round).

Individual, group and package rates. The more you schedule, the better the pricing. I always have water, a nutrition bar, banana for them as well.
My father was a Major League Player/Coach, and after my professional baseball career I entered the fitness industry, encompassing high end exercise equipment sales, facility planning & design, Health Club Management, Personal Training Instruction and Sales. I love helping, instructing and coaching.
I've worked from ages 4-85, special needs students, disabled children and adults, a paraplegic, Mrs. Indiana, amatuer/professional athletes, and I specialize in 'seasoned citizens' in regards to Personal Training BECAUSE I AM ONE. ;)
I helped Becki F lose 30 lbs in 90 days, and he was literally crying & elated. I helped a shy, introverted teen in making his Jr. High team...in which he was ecstatic & improved his entire confidence.
Don't just shop rates, talk before and try one lesson before committing to more. Less isn't always more, and make sure they at least played and started in college, if not further professionally...
What is your goal(s) and expectations, and be thorough in communicating that. Also, in this day and age, you're welcome to film the session(s), or parts dependent upon your phone etc.
