About

Revolutionary New Way To Perfect A Hitters Swing

LoadUpPro Training Device (patent pending) is a revolutionary new way to perfect the swing and positioning of the body during pre and post ball impact. Designed for baseball, fastpitch and even golf, the training device helps beginners learn the proper launch hitting position, increase overall power and balance, help experience players perfect their hips to “load up” for maximum power, hand extension, balance and efficiencyTogether with the LoadUpPro Team - combine design, engineering, manufacturing, operations and execution talents make up a uniquely qualified group of professionals at LoadUpPro.

Then What?

So here was the LoadUpPro Prototype!

 Don't Laugh! It's gotta start somewhere.

Updated Version- Much Improved.

MADE IN THE USA!- All the materials we use are made in the USA.

TESTING A NEW VERSION-SOON- Easier to adjust to fit the hitter and use 25% recycled materials in our device.

Currently in talks with a supplier to supply us material for our base that is recycled HDPE.

LoadUpPro does not force you into a idealistic one size fits all swing like other devices on the market, instead it guides you to discover your most effective and natural swing by focusing on a body position that is fundamentally sound and matches your own physical capabilities.

The LoadUpPro process is simple and direct and teaches you to control the most common cause of flaws in a swing, the “Load Up” position, hip rotation and body balance. Your swing is a combination of connective motions and demands perfection. By learning to control the proper body position and location many of your swing flaws will be eliminated before they happen. Best of all the LoadUpPro guides and clarifies the mechanics of a sound hitter swings in simple steps. It teaches you feel and give you reference points to focus on and makes you aware of your swing to make your body move in the correct sequence.

The LoadUpPro device is designed to clue the hitter on where the proper pre-pitch/swing launch position is and to prevent the hips from getting out of the hitting zone during the swing and ball impact, enabling the hitter to stay behind the ball.

The LoadUpPro is designed to adapt to fit a wide range of players, with the height adjustable (19”-36”) stand that can rotate and be utilized for right and left handed hitters and adjustable horizontal (14”-28”) arms for proper alignment and body position. 

1.Player positions him/herself facing away from the device, a few inches away from the base, and between the 2 parallel boundary arms.

2.Player or instructor adjusts the distance between the 2 arms via the horizontal adjustable “Width” pipe to comfortably fit player to the desired pre-pitch launch position. The perfect weight distribution of 60/40.

3.Player or instructor then adjusts the “Height” pipe to comfortably fit the 2 parallel arms outside the hitter’s hips.

4.Player or instructor will position the back arm (arm closest to where the catcher would sit) a few inches from the players back hip. This distance can vary at the preference of the player or the instructor.

5.The hitter’s front hip (closest to the pitcher) will lightly touch the front arm.

6.Once player is properly stationed between the parallel arms, he or she is free to swing a bat.

7.As the hitter prepares to swing (load’s up), he/she will lightly lean back and touch the back hip to the back parallel arm (Load Up position). This gives a physical cue to the player that their body is now in launch position.

Once the hitter starts their swings, keeping the front hip behind the front parallel arm of the device, not touching the pipe stand behind him/her with their back or rear, and not falling toward the plate. In order to avoid hitting the device on the follow through, player will finish the swing above the front arm; reinforcing a high, extended, balanced finish to the swing.

Proper body positioning (Loading Up) prior to the pitch eliminates the hips from getting out of the hitting zone during the swing and enables the hitter to stay behind the ball.

1.Improves power, ball contact, overall body balance and hand extension.

2.Can be easily adapted by a wide range of player of all ages, sizes and skill level

3.Teaches hitter feel, muscle memory and give reference points to focus on

4.Pre-Pitch/swing, clues hitter to the proper placement of hips for the proper launch position 

5.Prevents the hips from opening too soon or leaking out of the hitting zone during the swing; this ensures the hitter is always “behind the ball”

6.Design forces the hitter to keep proper balance throughout the swing as well as have the hands finish high for maximum extension and power

7.Can be used for any age; from beginners where teaching the proper mechanics is fundamental to the older player as a physical cue or "touch up" on their swing

8.Can be used for soft toss, hitting off a tee, or live batting practice and on the practice range

9.Will maximize the power of the hitters swing while keeping the perfect balance and position during ball impact.
