Brian Kaplan is a Vice-President and Co-Founder of Cressey Sports Performance -Florida. Prior to joining the CSP team, he co-founded Athletic Development Performance, a Jupiter-based sports performance facility. He is well known for his work with baseball players of all ages and ability levels, and takes a particular interest in long-term development of younger players. He is an International Youth Conditioning Association Certified High School Strength and Conditioning Coach.
Brian was a Florida All-State and highly recruited high school pitcher, and went on to play baseball for the University of Notre Dame. A nagging injury, incurred during his high school senior year, eventually shortened his career. That experience has been the motivation for Brian to develop and implement individualized training and throwing programs geared towards elite baseball players. The core principles of his program are to create strong and stable athletic movements and an efficiency of the kinetic chain to achieve an elite level of performance.
Brian is also the general manager of the very successful Rockets Showcase Baseball team, consisting of elite high school players competing in national tournaments, and is the head baseball coach at The Benjamin School. His experiences in the gym and coaching on the field have allowed him to build an extensive network amongst upper tier college coaches and professional scouts.
