I have had the pleasure to watch and work with Steven for 6+ years at Fairchild Sports Performance. His ability to teach and pay attention to detail is one of the best I have seen, whether it is training with a teenager or pro athlete. We have become great friends over the years and I am excited to see Reach Training positively impact the lives of many future athletes.
I have worked with Steve over the last 4 years during my offseason program. Steve’s workout instruction and leadership has been a pivotal influence in me becoming the best player/person I could be. His friendship has been a blessing and he is a true leader who I look up to, not only when it comes to my career, but in my personal life as well. I feel very fortunate to be part of Reach Training and look forward to contributing to the program.

Steven is the best in the business. I met him when he first started training over 7 years ago. He was great then and he’s even better now. I think he has some of the best training programs I’ve experienced. I was stronger, faster, and more explosive after working with him. I set personal records in every major category and felt better than I ever had. More than being good at his job, he’s an amazing person. He’s helped me and given me advice any time I’ve needed it. The way he attacks every aspect of life is inspiring and makes me strive for more. Grateful for the brother he’s become to me. Top tier guy.
I have trained with Steven for the past 5 years and in those years my body has felt better than ever. His knowledge when it comes to strength training is second to none. He is really good at creating customized programs that fit your training/fitness goals. He gives attention to detail in making sure you are doing all movements correctly and getting the most out of every lift. It’s been an excellent experience training with him. Aside from strength training he’s just a great human. He’s so much more than just a strength trainer, he’s a good friend. He truly cares about all of his clients inside and outside the gym. I’m thankful to have met him and able to call him a good friend!

Steven has been in charge of my strength and conditioning program for 6 years. During this time, he has prepared my body to be in prime major league shape. I’ve seen myself hit so many physical goals and milestones under Steven’s watch. I’ve also had some career years (like 2018!). I started taking a much more measured approach to health and fitness after working with Steven, and it’s an approach I will take for the remainder of my career. But, more than anything, he has become a lifelong friend and role model. He’s someone that always has my back, no questions asked. I’m so proud and honored to have a guy like Steven in my corner, not just for baseball, but for life.
Steven has been a crucial part in my journey towards becoming a MLB player and in the success I’ve had in my career. His programs have helped keep me in the best possible position to maximize my performance and health throughout the course of the year. His knowledge and commitment to his clients are unparalleled. Definitely one of the best in the sports performance world!

Steven and I met back in 2016 when I decided to start training at Fairchild Sports Performance. Steven has been in charge of my fitness since then and I have not looked back. I have reached multiple milestones in my fitness and my career. Without his expertise and knowledge, I would not be the athlete I am today. He has pushed me to become the best I can be in my sport, but more importantly my life. I am very grateful for our friendship and excited to be part of Reach Training. I know Steven will positively impact many young athletes for many years to come. He is simply the best.
One of the best decisions I have made in my career was transferring my training to FSP. I’ve been working with Steve for the past three off seasons. I’ve been through a hip and knee surgery and couldn’t have been in a better more trusting spot. The attention to detail Steve gives is top notch. His goal is to get you in the best spot possible to succeed. It’s one thing to have a place to train, but it’s another to actually really enjoy the people you are around and working with. I can’t say enough about the guy. He brings the same attitude and attention each day. Not only is he an extremely gifted trainer, but an even better friend. Being able to have a personal relationship with someone that you are trusting to help you get better is a big deal for me.

I started working with Steven in 2020 and he has helped me reach my goals for fitness. I feel the strongest and the best I’ve ever been. Not only is he a great fitness trainer, but also a humble friend who’ll push you to become your best.
If you are looking for the best offseason training you can get, look no further because Steve is going to have you perform like never before. It’s not just about getting strong and faster, but he takes the time to ensure you are improving flaws you have within your body. He not only strengthens your best qualities, but he focuses on keeping you durable and healthy while you train. Steve takes a different approach than most trainers and is willing to make the sacrifices needed to get you where you want to be. All around great trainer and even better person.

I’ve been thankful to be around some of the best sport specific strength coaches in the game of baseball. Eric Cressey, Ben Fairchild, and without a doubt Steven! He has the knowledge, experience, work ethic, and discipline that sets him apart as one of the best strength coaches out there! More importantly, he has a high care level for the individuals he works with and invests his time into their development and minds to be the best they can be on and off the field!
Steven trained me for the 6+ years as I was a client at Fairchild Sports Performance. As someone who was always battling for a spot on the 25-man roster, it was pivotal that I showed up to spring training in peak physical condition. Steven always made it a priority to get me there. Furthermore, he is a phenomenal human being. I can think of no one more qualified to instruct young and upcoming athletes, nor anyone who would be a better role model than Steven.
