Our goal is to help you reach yours.

The Advanced Performance Academy was developed in 2010 with a passion to produce an elite baseball training center that caters to all levels. Since that time, the Academy has evolved into one of the premier athlete development facilities in the Northeast having trained multiple MLB, NFL, NHL, collegiate, amateur and adult clientele. We believe that our training methodologies can carry over and relate to athletes of all experience. Our goal is to continuously push our athletes to levels they did not feel existed and challenge those limitations on a daily basis. 

At AP, we pride ourselves on our "Building Champions" methodology. We preach the process to which champions are built. It’s a process that can’t be mastered overnight. Our aim is to inspire our athletes and empower them to take over their careers through hard work, information and dedication.

Let's Get Started. 

Promise to our clients:

+ To help our clients reach their stated goals and have a better understanding of themselves.

+ To continue pushing the envelop on what we know and how we structure what we teach.

+ To provide a system that blends traditional skill and strength acquisiton for our athletes.

+ To match passion with purpose and lead with that passion every day.




Our goal is to offer a one of a kind opportunity for athletes to become more than they thought they could be.
