I, Jon Huizinga, aka Coach Zing, believe in a holistic approach to baseball training.
For me, that means nutrition, mechanics/technique, approach, preparation, physical conditioning, mental conditioning, are all equally important for the athlete. Nutrition for me is where it all starts.
Without the proper fuel it would be silly to think you will have peak performance.
The idea that you are only as strong as your weakest link. For many guys I’ve coached and played with their weakest link is the food they fuel with. This was true for me too until the pain from my elbow injury taught me otherwise. There had to be a way I would keep telling myself. Change can be a tough thing for many people especially when it comes to what they eat and consume. For me it was tough too, but switching from meds and supplements to whole foods had a ripple effect on the other areas. I recovered faster, was more mentally alert, and overall more positive as a human being.
