May 27, 2015

Farmville, VA

Two athletes stand side by side. Both are fast. Both are strong. Both have devoted their lives to developing the skills necessary to succeed at their given sport. Over the course of their athletic careers, one of those athletes will succeed. He or she will reach the pinnacle of athletic performance and be crowned a champion. The other athlete, however, will toil in mediocrity, grasping for a decade at the next rung on the ladder of athletic success only to fall short of his or her perceived potential.

The Secrets of Champions™ The Greatest Benefits of that Water You Aren’t Drinking

April 18, 2014

Washington, DC

According to Secrets of Champions™ founder Dr. George Carlo, when you drink water, you create a kind of "slurry" that enables quicker movement of blood flow, lymph, and other things through the GI tract. This generates heat, and that heat speeds up your metabolism, leading to better energy, burned calories, and improved organ health. Drinking water is the most efficient way to make sure there is enough oxygen circulating in the body for all sorts of metabolic and physiological functions. Water, ironically, lights our metabolic fire.

The Secrets of Champions™ Baseball Clinic comes to Jamestown, NY

July 17, 2013

Jamestown, NY

Stifling heat and unrelenting sun did little to dampen the spirits of the sixty young athletes who arrived, gloves in hand, to Jamestown, New York’s Strider Field early Wednesday, July 17th. Excitement was evident on young faces shaded beneath Jamestown Tigers baseball caps. Many talked eagerly among themselves or to equipment-toting parents at the prospect of being coached by former Mets pitcher and 1972 Rookie of the Year Jon Matlack.

Matlack is Director of Baseball Programs for the elite mentoring service Secrets of Champions™. He and the five other SOC Baseball coaches staffing the event aimed to give the young athletes a “major league experience” as part of a fundraiser for the Jamestown Tigers little league organization. Joe Spoto coaches the Jamestown Tigers and organized the event. Skills Coaches Frank Jagoda Jr., Frank Jagoda Sr., Jordan Basile, Jake Fosburg, and SOC founder Dr. George Carlo covered many methods of enhancing baseball skills and performance, from pre-game stretching and fielding techniques to proper form in base running.

Dr. Carlo, a Major League Baseball performance coach, taught the young athletes the same techniques he uses in his work with professional players, and many were eager to experience a “day in the life” of big league ball players. Dr. Carlo also spoke with parents on the importance of nutrition and proper sleep cycles in a developing athlete’s life.

The event concluded with a ceremony during which Dr. Carlo awarded the camp participants signed certificates of completion, followed by an impromptu autograph session with Jon Matlack.

“We’ll definitely be back next year,” said Dr. Carlo, “and next time we’ll have two days of camps—one day for older players and one day for the younger ones, because the turn-out today was fantastic.”
