Hello~ My name is Steven Leppert. 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 catcher and coach Don Leppert. Give your son/daughter/team that extra push and incentive they may need from someone who STARTED as a freshman in H.S. and College, and was drafted twice, once in the 16th round out of H.S. by the Blue Jays and the 5th round out of College by The Reds, where I played professionally for 4 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 of your games this season and see you play and/or practice.
I enjoy assiting people lead healthy lifestyles, and coaching and mentoring those from 4-85.
great working with Lep
I like the experience and expertise that Steve Leppert brings to my conditioning and training. I am recovering from a lower back fracture and Steve has been conscientious of making sure I am stretching properly and strengthening my core to help support my back. Steve is a positive influence and motivator that keeps training fun and interesting. He also provides nutritional information and advice that helps me with my overall fitness goals. I would recommend Steve to everyone. And in fact, I am going to hire Steve to help my daughter reach her fitness goals as well.
My son is new to baseball and has begun working with Steve. My son has had such a boost in confidence and skills in just a few sessions and has such a great time while there! Steve has a great way of working and cares about the whole kid! We will be continuing and continuing!
Very informative, easy to work with. My ten year old grandson had a fantastic time learning new skills and refining old ones.
First, I try to assess their fitness level. 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 going to a MLB ballpark 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 usually have water, and a nutrition bar snack 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 specialize in 'seasoned citizens' in regards to Personal Training.
Baseball players from 5 and up, to college players.
Assisted a kid in making his Jr. High team...in which he was elated.
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.
