AGSP trains The Akron Racers

Hello Everyone!

I have some exciting news, Akron General Sports Performance is now the Official Sports Performance Training of the Akron Racers!

AGSP will be training our local Women's Fastpitch Professional Softball team throughout the 2009 Season. AGSP will be helping to increase The Racers' strength, power, and speed while decreasing their risk for injury as they try to bring the National Pro Fastpitch (NFL) Championship back to Akron, Ohio!

Keep Training! (The Akron Racers will be!)
