I have known Jaime for 5 years and he has brought the best out of his players. He has the knowledge to get players as close as possible to their peak performance. Jaime has a determination to develop and change players that will impact their performance and overall health. Through his cutting-edge programs, athletes will break through previous struggles and improve overall athleticism.
Once I left the DBU program and started my minor league career with the Houston Astros, I needed someone who would get me ready for spring training. The workout plans that Jaime put together prepared me well for spring training and helped me as I progressed to different levels of professional baseball. Of all the strength coaches I have had in my career, Jaime was the best. His knowledge and his ability to motivate is what makes him superior to other strength coaches. Not only was he able to get me ready for spring training but his ability to develop in season strength plans helped me maintain my performance over the long grueling minor league season.

Jaime Garrido has played a huge role in my development as an athlete and as a baseball player. Learning from Jaime has been critical in developing my knowledge of strength and conditioning. When he became the strength coach at Dallas Baptist University he wasn’t only there to give us a program that would help us become stronger, faster and more mobile, but also there as someone who encouraged us and taught us why we were doing the things we were doing. He helped me grow in knowledge and skill. During his time as our strength coach at DBU his strength program and high energy served as a catalyst for our team and our success.
Jaime was one of my favorite guys to work out with. He always brought energy when I didn’t have any and motivated me to lift. Any time I needed extra work or stretching he was always there to help me. Awesome dude and one of my favorite guys to work with!

I’ve always loved to find different ways to separate myself from my competition. However, finding those different ways is never an easy task especially if you are trying to do it on your own. Jaime Garrido is a huge reason for my success not only as a baseball player but as a person. Jaime showed me the art of lifting and being able to separate myself by working harder than those around me. He truly invested a lot of time into helping me understand the importance of each day and each lift but also allowed me to learn from my mistakes. He truly is a teacher in every aspect of the term. Not only am I grateful for what he taught me while at DBU but I am also grateful that I got to experience him play and workout as a player. He truly was a competitor and I can proudly say that his fire on the field and in the weight room is something I strive for every day as a player and a person.
Jaime really knows how to get the best out of his athletes. Personally, he pushed me to do things I didn’t think I could do and taught me what it means to work hard with a purpose. I can’t thank him enough for what he has done for me and I wouldn’t be where I am right now without his guidance.

Jaime’s training really took me to the next level. I had a big velocity jump shortly after working with Jaime. I was able to carry a big workload for a full season with 100% health and performance.
Jaime played a big role in getting me where I am today. Not only is he knowledgeable, but he’s a great person as well. Jaime was an instrumental part of showing me my potential in the weight room. He had an up-temp attitude that was contagious to everyone.

Jaime is one of the most dedicated and devoted strength coaches I have ever met. You won’t find a more energetic coach who is willing to do whatever it takes to get you better. His passion and intentionality will motivate and inspire you every day.
When it comes to performance and motivation, I’ve never met someone who can get an entire group of athletes to their highest level better than Jaime. The way he speaks when we are getting after it and the way he reinforces good technique is something every strength coach should do. He really set the tone for myself and a lot of young guys early in our college careers.

Jaime turned my baseball career around and was a big reason why I was drafted. I gained a significant amount of weight and strength, and my velocity went to a level I had never been to before. He is young, enthusiastic and brings energy to the weight room that makes you want to lift.
Jaime is one of the most organized and knowledgeable athletic performance minds out there. His open mindset on each athlete’s specific needs helps him to create and adjust workouts to get the most tailored results for each individual. He helped shape the physicality of a 2014 regional Dallas Baptist University baseball team that I was a part of. There is no doubt in my mind that we won the Missouri Valley Conference that year largely because of his involvement with our team. I believe without him, our success that year would have been unattainable. Jaime also set workouts for me during the offseason of my professional baseball career. He asked what my goals were, and then proceeded to lay out an exact workout to get me where I needed to be with those goals in mind. I thank Jaime for his knowledge and equipping me to be the best athlete I could be. I highly recommend going to see Jaime no matter what the age of athlete you are. He’s the man!

Jaime is an absolute beast! He trained me during my first off-season of professional baseball. He made me bigger, stronger, faster and increased my flexibility. Jaime has a passion for making athletes better and continues to learn himself. He will definitely put you in the best position to be successful no matter what sport you are playing.
