From a college baseball career came the desire to find a better way to improve athletic performance and resilience. Private Sector training of over 8 years and a Master’s in Science from Sacramento State University helped Richie build the largest college prep and professional athlete off-season training facilities in the Northern California region. The journey to Scottsdale came with the goal of helping more and more athletes, and Helix is where he utilizes his extensive background in exercise physiology and sports science to improve that 1% in others, and positively impact as many athletic futures as possible.
I have always desired to create a training environment that is truly player and results driven with leaders whom my children could look up to. I really believe we have designed that with HELIX. It’s good people achieving great success.”
A lifelong pursuit to achieve optimal physical and mental development in sports led Steven to a collegiate football career. Through that Steven found a passion and love for strength and conditioning. He graduated and completed his internship at Colorado Mesa University with a B.S. in Kinesiology. He then moved home and started his own holistic training business, producing dozens of collegiate and professional athletes over the past five years. Learning from the best in the Valley, Steven continued to build a strong network which led him to his partners at HELIX. Working with athletes of all ages from all sports he has developed a passion for helping people progress in their sport and in life.
In addition to his own clients, Steven has been hired by two area high schools and a club organization as their head strength and conditioning coordinator. He has been a part of four state championships and helped 19 athletes earn scholarships and sign national letters of intent.
When you look at the elite team, and how special our facility is, then study the system we’ve built based on our unique backgrounds, we couldn’t be more excited about the future. We care about movement and how efficiently our clients can perform that movement. We look at things through a different lens and really make sure we are taking a holistic approach that is unmatched.”
Born and raised in the Valley, Danny has been around some of the finest players and minds within the game of baseball. Throughout his collegiate career, he attended Mesa Community College where he helped capture Mesa’s first National Championship title in 2014. After departing from MCC, he landed in Southern California at The Masters University where he was a part of back-to-back NAIA World Series appearances in 2016 and 2017.
After completing his Bachelor’s in Business Communications, Danny found himself back home where he would further his experience in baseball. He has grown to become a well sought-out hitting instructor from all areas within the youth and MLB community, and his unique and simple style of teaching is centered around the philosophy of maximizing each individual’s athleticism and strengths, both mentally and physically.
Being a part of the Helix team has been a blessing from the beginning. I feel very fortunate to have some of the brightest minds under one roof who are all dedicated to helping athletes achieve their goals. Seeing an athlete’s stats increase is great, but knowing they are growing to be better individuals is what it’s all about. Helix provides the atmosphere and resources to do just that.”
