This past weekend, I had the opportunity to stop off in Hudson, Massachusetts, for an afternoon on my way to Boston. What’s in Hudson, you ask? Not a whole heck of a lot — besides, of course, the Mecca of sports performance facilities: Cressey Performance. Being in such close proximity, I just had to complete the pilgrimage to see what CP was all about.
Tucked away in the back of an industrial park about three miles from the town center, Cressey Performance is the strength and conditioning home to some of baseball’s top pros and prospects. While this reputation may sound intimidating, in fact CP provides a uniquely friendly training environment, seamlessly integrating athletes and general population clients alike. CP offers an extremely thorough evaluation, highly individualized programming, and world-class coaching no matter the client’s age, athletic prowess, and training goals.
At the end of the day, once all the athletes were gone and gym cleanup was complete, the staff got together to lift. To my delight, they even graciously allowed me to join them as they practiced what they preach. Although I got to spend only a few hours at the well-oiled machine that is Cressey Performance, I couldn't have come away more thrilled with my experience and all that I learned.
