Powerworks is featuring an athlete each month who is excelling in their sport.   The athletes have been training at Powerworks in the Athletic Development Program or the Golf Program, Performance 18 and are taking their sports to the "Next Level" through the development of strength, power and agility.

September Athlete:  Ramon Jimerson Jr, Lincoln Magnet Middle School, Springfield

Sport:  Basketball/Baseball

Bio:  Ramon "RJ" is currently playing 8th grade basketball for Lincoln Magnet in Springfield, IL. He also plays for the Chicago White Sox ACE Program. RJ has been training with Trainer Titus Florence since August 2017, and has made tremendous progress in his athletic development. 

Highlights:

RJ is a dedicated athlete who focuses more on the joys and action during a game than his statistics. “I don’t pay attention to stats, I just play ball but throwing someone out from the outfield during a game is exciting,” as stated by RJ. 

Training Success:

The goal for RJ was to get him stronger and explosive without the use of any weights. Through the correct implementation of calisthenics, band work for explosion, plyometrics, and core training with Titus, his game has improved significantly just from athletic development alone.   

RJ trains at Powerworks with  Certified Fitness Trainer, Titus Florence.
