what people are saying
When it comes to baseball training facilities in Atlanta, Mike Berenger’s Rapid Sports Performance stands out from them all. He’s a trusted expert that I encourage any baseball player to see if trying to get to the next level.
As a sports medicine physician, surgeon, and professional baseball team physician, I am highly concerned about injury prevention and establishing proper mechanics for safe baseball performance in youth athletes. I have had an outstanding experience with Rapid Sports Performance for identifying injury risks & improving movement deficiencies, strength & overall performance to help prevent overuse injuries while increasing performance with a safe and progressive training program. I highly recommend Rapid Sports Performance to all athletes wanting to improve their performance and minimize the risk of injury.
Our club has a number of our elite softball players training at Rapid and the results are astounding. The level of care and expertise that their trainers provide our athletes is second to none. We have 100% trust in the services they provide for us.
I started my son, Daz, training at Rapid when he was 15 yrs old and 7 years later he is in the Detroit Tigers Triple-A system, and each offseason continues to train with the Rapid Team. Having been with some of the best performance coaches during my day as a player, Mike and his team are among the best. Rapid continues to improve their game year after year and because of this and their commitment to excellence, Daz continues to train and improve each year while staying healthy.
As a strength and conditioning coach that has worked with youth, college and professional athletes, it is easy to respect and trust the work being done at RAPID Sports Performance. Mike and his staff take great care of their athletes, ensuring they max out their talents. Dedication, knowledge, enthusiasm and skill are a hard combination to come by and the staff at RAPID have it. Whether it be pursuing continued education on their own time or spending hours devising the best way to get the most out of their athletes, an effort to supply the best sports performance training is constant. Being a strength and conditioning coach for a professional sports team affords me the knowledge and experience to know what it takes for an athlete to perform at the highest levels. The coaches at RAPID know that too and pour into their athletes like no other facility I’ve seen in Georgia. The best testimony I can give is if I had to send my athletes somewhere to train, I’d send them to RAPID. No question!
I am so lucky to have found the wonderful facility at Rapid! Their staff has been so accommodating for what I specifically needed to bring my performance to the next level while addressing the weaknesses in my body. Their knowledge and experience of training with world class athletes really shows and I cannot thank them enough!
AJ has been playing at Impact Soccer since 2011 and was a member of the 2004 and 2003 NL Elite teams at Impact. He started training with Rapid Performance in addition to his training at Impact Soccer about 6 months ago. After being recently invited by major European clubs and Atlanta United for trials to join their academies, AJ opted to play for Atlanta United’s (MLS) u16 boys team. Training with Rapid helped him achieve this major milestone in his development as a soccer player and as an athlete. Although AJ will be training 4-5x per week with Atlanta United, he plans on keeping up with his training at Rapid, as he sees this training as a key aspect for his career.
I have been so blessed to have the opportunity to train at Rapid Sports Performance since 7th grade. At that time Jonny Slutzky put together a customized Wrestling Functional Strength & Conditioning program for me which I have continued thru high school. This program has been a huge part of my success as a now nationally elite wrestler, and a catalyst in seeing me accomplish some amazing goals - with my best wrestling still yet to come as a soon to be Division I and Olympic Ladder potential wrestler. The results achieved from Jonny’s personalized training approach with me have enabled me to become a 7 time GA HS State Champion, a National Fargo Bronze Medalist and U.S. Junior National Team Member, and Division I wrestler at Duke starting in the fall 2019. I am forever grateful for the world-class program Jonny has built for me at Rapid and I look forward to using this foundation to accomplish even bigger goals at Wrestling’s highest level.
