How we started

YEARS IN THE MAKING

Futures has been in the works for years, but something this big took a lot of planning, and a lot of time. Nick and Brandon met in 2020, when they both found themselves training out of the same training facility in Corona.

 

Nick, a UCLA NCAA champion and former professional player, had just started Integral Athletic Optimization and quickly built it to one of the premier sports performance locations in Southern California.  Brandon, a WOU graduate and former professional player, had been in the private sector for a few years training both hitters and catchers. He had also started Catching Coalition, a brand that allowed him to network with some of the best coaches in professional baseball, and attract clients from all over the country.

Their shared passion for training players and building relationships led them to brainstorm ways to improve their training and create a better experience for athletes. After months of brainstorming on ways to improve their training and the experience for the athlete, the idea for Futures was born, but it came to a stop almost as soon as it began.

MOVE TO THE EAST COAST

In early 2022 Brandon was offered a minor league coaching position with the New York Yankees - a job that he and his family couldn't refuse. This "setback" for the facility planning turned out to be a blessing in disguise. During that summer Brandon got a front-row view at how the best of the best in professional baseball train and develop their players, and more importantly, he learned that it was a totally different game at that level. Players were valued differently, their production was measured differently, and above all else, they trained differently. And it was clear that the kids back in Southern California deserved to train and be valued the same.

 

BUILDING A POWERHOUSE

Back in California, Nick continued to find ways to create greater adaptations in athletes in less time and with less fatigue - allowing athletes to improve while performing well in the now. With Nick's growing body of work, he partnered with local high schools and attracted more college and professional athletes of his own. The top athletes in the Inland Empire were rushing to join a program that proved to enhance their performance and produce results. Much like Brandon, he knew the next phase of his company's growth was to go all-in on the next generation of athletes and give them a training experience like no other.

 

The Future is Here

The facility they had dreamed about began to come to life after Nick and Brandon linked back up in the fall of 2022. With our Grand Opening in March of 2023, there is no doubt - the future is here.
