Brent Concolino was born and raised in Orange County, CA. In 1999 Brent came to ROCK Institute Sports Performance Training for Baseball, Football, Soccer and Lacrosse. Brent went on to play Varsity and Letter every year in all sports he played in high school as well as becoming League co-MVP in Baseball his junior year, and honored with all league selections. In Baseball, Brent had the fortunate opportunity to play for former professional pitcher Mark Langston, 3-time MLB league strikeout leader, who played 16 years in professional baseball with teams such as the Anaheim Angels, San Diego Padres and Cleveland Indians. Langston considered Brent as “one of the best natural Athletes to come out of Orange County I have ever seen”.
In 2003 Brent was voted a top Southern California player of the year by California Coaches Association. After healing from a torn hamstring he went on to Saddleback College to stay close to ROCK Institute to continue getting treatment. Brent started up baseball again and, unfortunately, soon thereafter tore his right medial collateral ligament in his right pitching elbow. Surgery soon became inevitable and in 2004 he underwent Tommy John Surgery from Dr. Lewis Yocum. Brent continued training at ROCK Institute and was able to make a comeback at UCLA in 2006 where he encountered another challenge during the year: still another surgery occurred at the end of the 2006 year and Brent began to make another comeback.
However, this time he experienced extreme sharp pain and was unable to continue throwing a baseball. Brent Graduated from UCLA in 2007 and continued to study the history of Sports Injuries and realized that too many athletes were being physically and mentally destroyed by the old school way of sports training at such a young age. Orthopedists say “It’s real distressing. In his 30 years as a surgeon, Dr. Lewis A. Yocum, the medical director for the Los Angeles Angels, said he had performed only one Tommy John procedure on a pitcher as young as 16. He now performs 80 to 100 of the operations each year.” Kids are even getting surgery upon entering high school due to over-training and/or poor techniques in training in their specific sport.
Brent has now devoted himself to developing & guiding young athletes to compete at their highest level without over-training their bodies and minds. Brent has trained thousands of athletes from high school phenomenon’s to college All-Americans as well as Olympic Gold Medalist’s. Brent defines himself as “A Simply Average Person” (a.s.a.p.) who is able to get people from where they are (point A) to where they would like to be (point “B”, “C” and forward).
