UIC Head Baseball Coach gives Thumbs Up
As an ex-professional athlete and a long time NCAA Division 1 collegiate coach my fitness level is an important part of my life. Unfortunately a hectic work schedule kept me from working out on a regular basis for several years and I was finally fed up with my general lack of condition and thus sought out Hadley Allen. I have now worked with Hadley for over three months and am absolutely amazed at what she has done for me in such a short time. Her ability to quickly analyze my deficiencies and address them was most impressive. I have been associated with a dozen strength coaches over the 30 years of my career but she has demonstrated to me a unique ability to tailor her programming to what the client needs, wants and is capable of handling and at the same time safely pushing and encouraging growth. The consummate professional she has been a true pleasure to work with and can’t thank her enough for what she has done for me. As an example my increased flexibility has added 25 yards to my drives on the golf course and to be honest it really wasn’t a goal of mine.
Our program has produced over 25 professional players in the last 10 years, including Yankee centerfielder Curtis Granderson, and we have already begun to integrate some of her programming. Thanks Hadley!
