"Some 4 years ago, my son and I were introduced to Chuck Bushbeck and Full Armor Training. Matt was about 15 at the time, a tall, lanky, hard throwing left-hander who could throw a strike from center field, but was a bit, let's say, inconsistent from the mound. We had been to other trainers, and quickly realized that most did not have Matt's best interest foremost in mind.
"I remember our first Full Armor session vividly. Matt called it the "Rocky Gym." "Just so you know, we don't take on every kid that walks in here. If we don't think you have what it takes, we're not going to waste your time and money or our time. On the other hand, if we see ability, we'll give 110% and expect the same from you." OK, so maybe this isn't the "Dale Carnegie" approach to bringing on new clients, but it was refreshing to hear. These guys were really interested in my kids' well being."
"Needless to say, Matt did make the cut, so to speak. He quickly developed a bond with Chuck Bushbeck, who became not only a trainer, but a "life mentor" to my son. Chuck Bushbeck and his academy staff have been there for Matt during good times and bad, through the ups and downs, and God willing, will be able to see him through his college years and beyond. They are a true inspiration.
"I am forever grateful not only for the man they are helping grow my son into, but for their friendship and inspiration. Thanks "Full Armor," for all that you do."
I have watched Chuck Bushbeck and his academy staff work with my son for several years. I have been impressed by their knowledge of the game, their strategies and techniques of teaching, their creativity and their positive effect on my son. They work long hours teaching the kids. Chuck Bushbeck and his guys bleed baseball. More importantly, they are committed to helping their students grow mentally and emotionally both as a baseball player, and as a person.

I was looking for a softball trainer for my children and remembered Chuck Bushbeck had a training facility. I got in contact with him and was able to get my children in training that weekend. My children, ages 15 and 9 have been attending Full Armor training sessions for only a few months. They both have grown so much in this short amount of time. My 15 year old was set on making her high school varsity softball team. She made it with the help of Chuck. She was 1 of 3 freshman to make the team. She also plays for our city's softball league where she made the All Star team. Her hitting has improved tremendously in this short time. My youngest too has grown in the short time training at Full Armor. She is also hitting better and learning the foundation of the sport. I am extremely pleased with the Full Armor Training Program and I would highly recommend Chuck and his Program to anyone!!

Bushbeck's program would be a valuable asset to the community and to the youth of this city through, not only the use of sports, but positive affirmation that will follow these individuals through life.

"Ever since I met Chuck, everything seems to be back on track. He's got me in sync again. I felt this past season I was out of whack. Every once in a while, you meet that one person that has that life-changing affect on you."

We first met Chuck when he was coaching our son in soccer where he taught conditioning, technical skills, and strategies of the game. Later, he was instrumental in helping our son utilize and improve his skills in baseball through Full Armor's philosophy of the technical skills and mental skills needed to go after his dream of playing Major League baseball.. Thanks to Chuck's guidance, our son, Gary Mitchell, was drafted in the 21st round of the 2010 Major League Baseball Draft.
