The Following is an Interview with Brady and Gavin's father, Brant Miller.
1. What "problem" or what did they need to work on before coming to IS? Gavin had a small fracture in his left hip and we were looking to rehab and strengthen the hip. As to Brady, I don’t think there was a “problem” rather we were just interested in starting him on a workout regime similar to Gavin.
2. What is different about our service that has made the biggest difference for them and you? The kids love the trainers and buy into the workout programs. They actually compete against each other and the trainers, in a very good natured manner, foster that competition and push each one to achieve their best results while utilizing proper form.
3. When did you realize our service was working for them? Gavin’s hitting and arm strength really shined about three months into the workouts when he was in a baseball tournament in Las Vegas. He had rehabbed the left hip fracture, his left wrist fracture (both from football) had healed, and he was hitting balls in the gaps harder than I had ever seen. His velo on the mound surprised me as well. As to Brady, his athleticism on the basketball court really began to stand out. His ball handling and shooting had always been excellent, but now, one of the shortest on the court, was jumping over taller boys for rebounds and running past everyone. He really began to stand out amongst all the other players.
4. What does their game look like now that their problem is being solved? The sheer physical fitness of both boys is amazing. Gavin: as a QB, his passes have a greater spin rate and velocity than I could have imagined at this age. In baseball, his range at shortstop is very good, his power at the plate continues to surprise me and he has his fastball up to 86 mph. Brady: although usually one of the shortest on the court or on the baseball field, Brady is always one of the most gifted athletes playing. He makes shots in basketball that still surprise me and almost always out-physicals whomever he’s playing against. In baseball, he’s one of the hardest hitting leadoff hitters that we see at his age in travel ball, and because of his strength and speed, makes plays at shortstop that I usually don’t see made at his age level.
5. What are they and you looking forward to in their athletic future with the help of IS? We are all looking for them to continue their strength and agility increases in a safe manner. Above all, I’m hoping this will create a blueprint in both of them going forward so they can each maintain their physical health regardless of their paths in life.
Gavin is currently Verbally Committed to Auburn University to play Baseball.
