"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."
"My husband and I took our son, Kyle, to see Chuck Bushbeck approximately 3 years ago. Kyle was having pain in his pitching arm. We took him to an orthopedic surgeon, who suggested rest. After resting for 3 months, he started pitching again and the pain came back. We went back to the surgeon and Kyle was sent to Physical Therapy. Kyle did Physical Therapy for 8 weeks. Kyle started back pitching and after a month the pain was back. Kyle's pitching coach, Chuck Bechtel, suggested he see Chuck Bushbeck to check out his mechanics. My husband was amazed. Chuck saw Kyle throw three times and knew right away what his problem was. It was all mechanics. Kyle continues to see Chuck to fine-tune his mechanics in pitching...Best of all, the pain has gone away."

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!!

Shane's confidence in himself during all sporting events, as well as his excellent grades in St. Matthew School can, in part, be attributed to Chuck Bushbeck.

Chuck, my son Joey had an an outstanding high school season on the mound this year, and it wasn't all about his numbers. More about his mental status connected to his pitching mechanics. All your techniques, the mass x speed for velocity, the bullpens, the upper torque focus, the mental pounding seem to all "gel" together. Most important of all was the life he would still have in the arm after pitching. I can't thank you enough for all your hard work with Joey.

"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."

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.
