The importance of having a flat, level swing
What the flat swing does is it allows you to stay on plane in case the ball is a little more out front then expected. Hitting is all about making adjustments. A pitchers best weapon is being able to throw off timing by slowing things down. Knowing this it’s Imperative you work on a flat level swing. This let’s you hit the ball not just in your zone, but the ball that’s a foot or so out in front (as exhibited by AC in the video). Stay flat my friends
Hi everyone! My name is Brooke Balk and I am very excited for this strength and conditioning internship opportunity with GTS performance and fitness! I am from Eagle, WI and am a 2014 graduate of Palmyra-Eagle High School. This past December of 2018, I graduated from Luther College with my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Exercise Physiology and I plan to continue my educational career in pursuit of a Doctoral Degree in Physical Therapy in the near future.
While completing my undergraduate degree, I played varsity softball for four of my four and a half years. My first two years, I attended college at and played ball at St. Cloud State University in St. Cloud, MN, and I finished out my eligibility and degree at Luther College in Decorah, IA. Additionally during my time at Luther College, I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to be a student intern athletic performance coach. Doing so, I had the opportunity to train Luther College varsity athletes in the weight room for two years and learn a great deal about strength and conditioning from Luther College’s head athletic performance coaches. Rounding out my experience, I worked as a fitness and wellness intern in Rochester, MN at The Mayo Clinic’s Retirement Living Center – The Charter House, during the summer of 2018. While there, I designed and taught group fitness classes, conducted personal fitness training sessions, and administered fitness assessments to the geriatric Charter House residents.
Being a retired athlete myself, I have a passion for the weight room and the field of strength and conditioning. And I am beyond excited to share this passion of mine with all of the student athletes and adults who utilize GTS’s training systems and facilities!
We are very excited to have you with us!

Tattoo series; |||
(Roman numeral 3)
I remember this one like it was yesterday. It was my very first tattoo and I was STRESSED out of my mind. I just don’t like going into things where I have no idea what to expect. And it’s true what they say, once you get one, you’re gonna want MORE. Kinda like Pringles, once ya pop the fun don’t stop 💃🏼
The reason behind this one is simple. If you know me, my FAVORITE number is 3. And when I say favorite, I’m OBSESSED
But for real, It’s more than just a number to me. It represents my entire softball career that lasted for over 20 years. The game has truly shaped who I am today and has brought so many amazing people and opportunities into my life. I can’t help but smile every time I look at it. And now that I don’t play anymore, I still get to rock the greatest number in the world for-e-ver
& again with the red ink, it’s my favorite color so naturally I had to pair it with my favorite number ❤️
