WHAT WE'RE ALL ABOUT

WE AIM TO TEACH OUT ATHLETES HOW TO BECOME THEIR OWN BEST COACHES

We aim to teach our athletes how to become their own best coaches. From understanding their personal biomechanical signature (how their body works in their specific sport movements), the functional ability of their body, their injury history and physical limitations, and along with a road map of goals discussed in our initial assessment we monitor progress through both state of the art technology and experienced coaches and trainers on a weekly basis to meet the individual goals of each RAS athlete. This is not a one size fits all approach, as every athlete has a completely custom performance plan tailored to their goals, nedds, schedule, and physical limitations.

Also, can we take out the number widget with # of equipment, customers, and all that. I like it but we will implement that once we get moving. Also if we can take off partner success stories for now.

Goal oriented process

  • Assess – With an initial assessment, we evaluate your personal baseline in regards to your physical, technical, and emotional abilities.
  • Train – Skill, strength, mental, emotional, progress evaluation
  • Reassess – Reassess

Andy is a native Phoenician with a wide range of experience working with athletes of multiple disciplines. After graduating from Northern Arizona University with a BS in Exercise Sciences, he became a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist through the National Strength and Conditioning Association. From there he went on to work for performance studios developing periodization programs for power athletes, which include baseball, golf, hockey, volleyball, soccer and gymnastics, and endurance athletes, which include swimming, cycling, and running.

With a passion for working with rotational athlete’s, he then became certified through Titleist Performance Institute and OnBase University specializing as a fitness professional for golfers and baseball players. As a strength coach for RAS he believes deeply on the principle of using the science of exercise physiology and biomechanics to teach each athlete how to become their own best coach.

Casey Upperman
Founder/Owner/Performance Coach

Born and raised in Phoenix, Casey fell in love with the game of baseball when he was 5 years old. After attending Notre Dame Prep in Scottsdale, Arizona, he was selected by the Atlanta Braves in the 2009 MLB Draft. Forgoing his commitment to University of Arizona, he decided to attend Yavapai College to have the ability to enter the Draft the following year. He was selected by the Arizona Diamondbacks in the 2010 MLB Draft and signed his first professional contract. Playing Professionally from 2010-2017, he spent time with the Arizona Diamondbacks, Washington Nationals, and Baltimore Orioles. As his playing career was winding down due to durability and injury issues, he decided that there had to be a better way to help pitchers reach their goals and have more control of their future and dreams. After spending a couple years in Los Angeles with Dr. Tom House and the National Pitching Institute, he realized that there is a tangible, data driven alternative to rotational athletic training that starts with the player understanding how to be their own best coaches and building a process that works for them. Since then, Casey has coming a Certified Pitching Instructor through the National Pitching Association, a Titleist Performance Institute Certified Instructor, OnBaseU Certified Pitching Instructor, along with serving as varsity pitching coach at Notre Dame Prep (2014-2018) and assistant varsity coach at Cactus Shadows High School (2018-Present). He currently lives in Phoenix with his 2 dogs, Fitz and Floyd.
