Our A2 app allows you to access your program and workouts right from your smartphone. It also allows you the option of having our team monitor your sleep, nutrition, and activity on the days you are away from our clinic.

SPORTS

A2 Baseball
The A2 baseball program was created for serious baseball players looking to develop their physical abilities and promote their game to the next level. Utilizing science based training methods, the program focuses on functional power, arm strength, speed, and swing velocity. Our qualified team of professionals and advisors employ their understanding of human biomechanics, weight lifting, and plyometrics to build custom programs to fit each athleteís specific needs. We implement separate programs for off-season vs. in-season training in consideration of the physical demands placed on the athlete and to reduce the risk of repetitive use injuries. Our A2 app allows us to plan workouts to be performed at home, at the school weight room, or any training facility.  Becoming a part of the A2 team integrates our core values of integrity, respect, accountability, and leadership.

"Physically and mentally as healthy as I can be is my goal. My father lived to 93 and fairly healthy physically and mentally. My mother is 96 years old and is failing mentally and physically. I have watched the good and bad of aging. My chances of longevity is good but I want to be mentally and physically as healthy as I can be. Not until I started working out with Kristi Cruz at A2 did I know how to prepare myself for my road ahead. Kristi has given me the tools and information for me to understand what I need. She has led me by my hands and feet to improve me physically and talked and explained to help me understand the process. Working out with Kristi two or three times per week is a priority and my recipe for good mental and physical health. My name is Geri Markham and I am 71 years old. I feel as fit as I could be at my age. I have to give all the credit to Kristi Cruz at A2 for walking with me through the process. I would recommend Kristi totally if you are interested in learning to be physically and mentally healthy as you move on in life. Life is good thanks to A2 and Kristi Cruz."

"A2 has been wonderful in helping me with my elbow pain. The skilled staff has attacked my ailment with an array of methods. I came in with 6-7/10 pain and after a few weeks my elbow is down to 1-2/10. The environment is warm and welcoming. The staff is friendly and very skilled. They take the time to listen and formulate a personalized plan. One of the tools they use is the Neubie. I have had amazing results using it. Its ability to target and safely load a specific area is very helpful. Overall, A2 is amazing and I would highly recommend it to any and all!"

"It was very helpful to be taught exercises I could do at home to alleviate the pain in my back and to make my stomach/diaphragm stronger. It was a great experience and I took away a lot of knowledge to help myself."
