The NSPT Pitching Lab


North Shore Performance Training is proud to announce a new branch of specefic training for our overhand throwing athletes. NSPT-Pitching Lab, by James Baker (former Pro pitcher, NSPT Founder and Performance Coach and SJP Pitching Coach), certified under National Pitching & Tom House Sports, will offer a dynamic and comprehensive program for all baseball pitchers (once everyone is back to normal routines following our national crisis. Be safe and well to all).

This program will include an initial consultation and movement screening, corrective and functional exercises specefic to each individual, client-specefic throwing/patterning drills, arm care and pitching/throwing video analysis. Online programs and mechanics breakdowns will be offered as well. 

More information and fun and enganging pitching posts can be found below on our Instagram page. 


Thank you for following our program and spreading the word on how to throw healthier and harder by developing and ultimately maximinzing your physical potential!

"NSPT has been essential to my development as a pitcher. Over the last few years of working with James, he has been developing my lifts based on how I move on the mound. It has made me a more efficient and stronger athlete on the mound and I couldn’t have gotten to the level I’m at without NSPT."

"James Baker is a trainer with patience, guidance, energy and is 100% supportive of you to achieve your personal best on any given day, in the weight room and during pitching practice. I brought my very uncoordinated son to see him at age 12 and he is to this day, a proud member of NSPT, both functional training and pitching. James has worked with Erik, not only on the physical aspects of training and pitching, but more importantly, the mental aspect of being the best you can be.

He has the ability to have you reach within yourself to achieve for yourself, not for your mom or dad, not for your coach, but for yourself. Yes, my son is stronger, faster, more coordinated than ever, however, it is his confidence in his ability to achieve, that I truly attribute to James.

Erik will continue his baseball career at Wheaton College, where James played for four years."

"We saw great improvements in Zach's performance in just 1 year with Coach Baker. We knew he would succeed with Coach Baker's program and the rest of the NSPT Staff. Coach Baker delivered! Zach gained 5 miles per hour on his fast ball, but more importantly he put on 15 pounds of muscle which was beneficial considering he is 5' 8" and throwing in the low 90's! Coach Baker's program catered Zach's workouts to a pitcher's needs, with an eye towards the athlete's health. Protecting the throwers arm and mastering a pitchers mechanics was always a priority. We highly recommend NSPT and Coach Baker's program!
Thank you for all you do for my son, Zach. He thinks very, very highly of you."
