Gordon Kocher

Gordon Kocher is the most sought after strength coach in the Montgomery County area when it comes to baseball. Being involved in the sport since he was old enough to throw a ball himself, he has traveled the ranks through grade school and collegiate play.

He pitched for Northampton High School where he won First Team pitcher his senior year with a career record of 13-1 over 2 years. He was a 4-year starting pitcher at East Stroudsburg University where he was named as one of the top 25 blue chip players for his sophomore and junior years. Gordon still holds several records including 3rd in all time strikeouts, 3rd in lowest ERA, and 3rd in most complete games. He also played for the Scranton Red Sox.

During his competitive years he became obsessed with finding ways to improve baseball performance, which led to the actual study of Exercise Science in college.

Gordon graduated from East Stroudsburg University with a Bachelors in Movement & Exercise Science. He continued onto California University of Pennsylvania where he earned a Masters in Exercise Science. He also obtained a certification from Rod Dedeaux Research & Baseball Institute for pitching instruction.

While he’s not as competitive as he was “back in the day,” on good days he can still ding 92 mph on the radar gun. He prides himself on practicing what he preaches. More importantly, his evidence-based approach to coaching and attention to individual detail helps many athletes and teams take their abilities to the next level.

“I’m committed to being the best coach possible. If I’m not coaching, I’m thinking about new ways to apply the foundations. I’m continually striving to learn from the ever-evolving body of research and from other industry leaders.”

Make no mistake, when it comes to baseball strength & conditioning, athletes are in qualified hands when working with Gordon.

Gordon owns and operates Body-Improvements East, which is located in Hatfield, PA. In addition to training baseball players, he also works with various others including athletes and general population.
