About

I, Jon Huizinga, aka Coach Zing, believe in a holistic approach to baseball training. For me, that means nutrition, mechanics/technique, approach, preparation, physical conditioning, mental conditioning, are all equally important for the athlete. Nutrition for me is where it all starts. Without the proper fuel it would be silly to think you will have peak performance.
