Instead of teaching all hitters to swing the exact same way I utilize the OnBaseU movement screening with my clients to understand how their body works. I then utilize video analysis to identify swing flaws and determine if they are mechanical issues or if their movement deficiencies are the cause.
I enjoy seeing my players develop. Each player has their own individual needs and getting them to their potential takes an individualized process
Both my 10 and 14 year old received hitting lessons from Luke. He was easy to schedule with, and provided great instruction and feedback. Both boys benefitted from their time with him. Luke was also very friendly and kept both boys interest. We highly recommend him.
He is extremely knowledgeable and is great with my son!
Very impressed that Luke performed individualized flexibility testing on my grandson before any lesson - and gave him ‘homework’ to improve lower back flexibility & strengthen his core. He has depth of knowledge displayed In motor skills, physics assessments. Luke communicates well & explains the ‘why’, creates a ‘plan’ that is individualized for the youth’s body capability. He introduced key batting tips that could be put to use immediately. Most importantly, grandson really likes him. I see a great coach/ student relationship budding
Coach Luke is amazing! My oldest son, 8 years old, is determined to work on his baseball skills so he can be ready for next season. A friend introduced us to Luke so we thought to give hitting lessons a chance. I was worried that my kid wouldn’t be into baseball since it’s technically “off-season” but after one lesson with Coach there was no looking back. Luke’s approach was patient, encouraging, and effective. My son really took on to him. As a rookie baseball parent I didn’t know what to expect but to see my son so engaged was a blessing. The drills and explanations on “why” things are done a certain way were just the right balance. After one lesson you could see the improvement. We are now a few lessons in and every week my son continues to improve. I think the sign of a good coach isn’t always what you see during the one on one instruction, but also what happens when the child goes home. My son now always wants to practice what he has learned. That itself makes me proud. Another indicator of a good coach is what that coach does to improve his knowledge of physical fitness. Last week I received a text from Coach telling me he was recently certified to do mobility screenings and asked if he could extend his lesson with my son to incorporate that into his training. That attention to detail is everything I was looking for to help my kid. My wife and I strongly recommend Coach Luke for any age child that wants to improve their game. Thanks Coach Luke for helping to develop our son!
I start each new client off with a movement screening followed by video analysis to identify swing flaws. I then use this information to determine if the client needs to work on their technique or if we need fix how their body moves first.

Look for someone who takes the time to understand each client and what makes them the hitter they are. Stay clear of cookie cutter approaches to hitting since each individual has their own movement capabilities
