Does your son or daughter struggle at the plate...but you don’t know how to help?  Are you out of ideas?  

The 7 Secrets of Hitting a Baseball, offers simple insight into the approach and techniques that Major League Baseball Players use to dominate opposing pitchers. The 7 Secrets is a powerful, must have tool for helping your son or daughter hit the ball.

Using slow motion video analysis of Major League Baseball stars such as Albert Pujols, Ken Griffey Jr., Robinson Cano, Joey Mauer (and more!), the 7 Secrets program is the first instructional program that illustrates and explains the baseball/softball swing through slow motion video.  The learning process is then doubled by using the same video analysis of youth players like your son or daughter, combined with in depth voice-over instruction. The entire program is delivered to parents and coaches through the Internet.  

Literally hundreds of coaches and parents are sharing this program with friends, family, and teammates for one simple reason: It works.  Everything is covered, from bat selection and hand placement, to the intricacies of front elbow control and stride.  It's all there... Taken at your pace, it’s also one of the easiest and fastest ways to learn.  Once you purchase the program, it's yours forever (including all updates and additions to the program).  Keep coming back to the material for refreshers, updates, and tips. 

Who is the target audience?
  • ANYONE who wants to know how to hit, but can't. It's not that they can't. It's just that they don't know how. In 2 short hours, this course will reveal all of the secrets.
  • PLAYERS who love the game, but struggle when hitting... standing at the plate produces anxiety and pain. Baseball and softball is a blast when you can hit... and The 7 Secrets is here to help!
  • PARENTS who are not sure how to help their son/daughter, maybe never played the game before, need affordable help from a certified hitting instructor, but not sure where or how to get help. The 7 Secrets is that entire package of help in one place.
  • COACHES who have run out of ideas, not sure how to help, need a proven system, or looking for an advantage. The 7 Secrets system is a difference maker, easy to teach, and produces results.
