The Arm Farm has done things for me that I never thought were possible. Max helped me contact schools, rehab from chronic shoulder pain and even gain velocity. The knowledge that I've gained since joining The Arm Farm is astonishing: everything from the mental skills, to advanced training, and pitch design without tech. As I mentioned earlier, I had shoulder pain which would always linger around and it seemed like it would never go away. Since I signed up for The Arm Farm, I haven't had a single day of arm pain and now I am a 88-90 guy for the first time in my life, which is truly insane because I've never been a 90 guy before. I could never be able to thank Max and The Arm Farm enough.

Meeting Max for the first time a couple years back I knew him and I had a connection from the start because of his knowledge of the game and how he helped one of my friends get back from an injury.
He's helped me through so many things in my baseball career and every time we talk there's always something more he's learned with in the week of us not talking. He reads non-stop through research, workouts, arm care for activation, strategy, mentality, etc.
When I joined The Arm Farm, I ended up gaining 6 MPH in the first 2.5 months and have since signed a pro contract. The Arm Farm is the way to go! Nobody cares more than Max.

From no offers to a walk-on at a D1 program, Max was a huge influence on my success story. Through thick and thin, he has instilled important lessons in me in regard to player development, but more importantly, personal development. His impact on my life was immediate and unsolicited. He has a passion and responsibility for helping others reach their goals while helping you find your self-worth. The evidence displayed in The Arm Farm's ability to help players reach new heights in objective performance is apparent. Leave your worries at the door if you’re concerned about antiquated coaching philosophies. The Arm Farm helps guide you along a path of success that fits your personal ambitions.

I had the pleasure of knowing and working with Max in the latter part of my college baseball career and it significantly changed my outlook on pitching. He opened my eyes to just how important proper training is. My velocity and command has significantly impoved as well as the effectiveness of my off-speed pitches because of my training and relationship with Max. His expertise on weighted ball training to enhance velocity and movement patterns is second to none. This talent alone sets him apart and will lead to nothing but durable arms. By understanding that each athlete performs in their own unique way, he is able to inspire them and lead them to their own ceiling. I am excited to be a lifelong part of the Arm Farm.

When I met Max I was shocked in the way he cared for me without even knowing me. It's hard to find people like that. His knowledge of baseball is not common. You don't have a guy doing hours of research everyday just to be able to teach it to someone that doesn't have the same knowledge. Max does everything and anything that he possibly can to help me be successful. He is more than advanced in his knowledge with pitching, hitting and weight training. There is just something different when he explains stuff to you, it just clicks! Hours of hard work with Max will usually lead to a solution of any problem. He really showed me how important training is. I have watched Max instruct other pitchers and it is just outstanding. Even though every athlete is different Max and The Arm Farm will find a way to individually inspire you and find a way to make you better. I know that Max and his program will continue to be a long term success and I'm thrilled to be a member of The Arm Farm.

There is much to say, but as you have training to get started with I will lay out the 3 most impressive in my eyes. Hard Working: My definition of hard working is someone who is willing to sacrifice for success when others will not. Max is one of the few who really lives and breathes hard work. Self-Less: When my pro career ended, people asked me if I’d go into coaching. I flatly replied “No chance”. There are few individuals who want to see others succeed to the same degree as their own success. Max is hands down one of these rare people. During my career Max was an unconditional supporter and believer in me (often more than I was of myself!). He has a love of others and this shows in his relationship with everyone he associates with. Honest: This to me is the most important of all. If a person is intelligent and hardworking but not honest, they can do more harm than good. My relationship with Max over 10 years has shown me a mature, talented, honest man.
I came into contact with Max during my JUCO days at Miami-Dade CC (before committing and transferring to FIU). Instantly, I could see the knowledge and desire he had to help and teach others. As I got to pick his brain a little I could see how well rounded he was in all aspects of baseball. Right away I could tell he was the real deal. The best part about it was he always offers to help with open arms and never expects anything in return. And to this day I admire that about him.
Luckily, Max and I grew close and when he brought forward an opportunity to join The Arm Farm I jumped at it.
The Arm Farm is second to none. He understands that every athlete is not the same and sits down and individualizes a a learning experience to help you reach your goals and full potential. It really is an honor to be apart of The Arm Farm and I couldn't be prouder to be able to call Max my true friend and coach.
During my first year as a College Pitching Coach I got to meet Max. He was developing The Arm Farm that year and I was all for it. The way he works on and off the field with baseball and the research is phenomenal. I couldn't believe all the research and development he had been piling up to start the Arm Farm.
I've never really done a weighted ball program or a weight lifting program the way he develops it. When it coms to coaching, he wants to get to know you before you even get started so that the program itself is catered to you and you alone. I love all the different variations of exercises, mindsets and routines he has to share. For me, the weight room lifts were key to help the throwing program build you into the pitcher you want to become. With hard work, determination and trust in Max's education, I think the sky is the limit on what you can get out of the Arm Farm. As a member, I'm excited for Max and the journey he is taking with The Arm Farm. I'm excited to see it grow.
Entering the fall of my senior year of college before Pro Ball, I had the pleasure of meeting Max. From our very first conversation I immediately knew that he was somebody I would gravitate towards. I went through a pretty big roller coaster my senior year and had the constant knocking of bad omens around me. Despite all of that, with Max's help I was able to not only overcome this but become stronger in the process.
One specific thing Max has taught me was having the ability to focus on each and every pitch. Prior to my appearances, Max would tell me "You have X amount of decisions to make today (meaning each pitch) and never to ever let one go without full intent". This not only kept me locked in but allowed me to never get ahead of myself as the game progressed, keeping me engaged every single pitch.
Not only is his baseball IQ off the charts but his ability to communicate to each of his players really sets him apart. One thing I can guarantee is you won't find anyone out there who knows more and also cares more than Max, which is why The Arm Farm's success will last moving forward.

Max Weiner is great at what he does; he is very knowledgeable and passionate about The Arm Farm program and helping pitchers learn their craft. That is why the program works, because he cares, he likes educating and he truly loves helping others to get better.
He's not one of those people who will try and change everything and make you feel uncomfortable to accommodate his teachings...like I'm sure we've all encountered. Another thing about The Arm Farm is that the first priority is always you and your body's health. It's never about them.
If something doesn't feel right Max is very cautious and specific and then advises you on ways to fix problems and to make sure you're 100% committed to the plan. In my and others' experinces who I know, Max is very reliable, he doesn't have you waiting around days or weeks for an answer to questions you may have.
Max has helped me throw much harder during junior college, summer ball and in D1... Since then, I don't have arm pain anymore.

I first heard about Max and The Arm Farm from his younger brother Jake, whom I was good friends with in high school. Jake always bragged about how great Max was. It was not until a little over a year later that I finally met Max and Boy was it an honor. He always has such a positive attitude and his willingness to help others, both on and off the field is unlike anything I've ever seen! Max loves nothing more than watching other people succeed; which is why I believe he does such extensive research. I can honestly say that I have never learned from someone as knowledgable about communicating; and The Arm Farm makes it understandable. Secondly, I also enjoy seeing Max work with other pitchers on their mechanics and the different drills to improve their game, which it actually did. It's really a sight to see the joy he gets out of helping fellow pitchers. One major thing that stood out to me about Max's teachings with The Arm Farm is that he always explains the reasoning behind why he asks you to try something. I learned first hand that Jake was not just hyping up his brother, but actually speaking the utmost truth!

The initial time I met Max, we had an instant connection through various endeavors and pastimes. At that point, I knew he was a special man, on a mission to be successful in whatever he truly is passionate about.
Over the past few years, we have collaborated on numerous projects, bouncing concepts, theories, and optimal progressions pertaining to athletic performance off of each other. Max has undoubtedly established himself as one of the premier and most highly sought after baseball educators in the industry. His willingness to assist in such a wide variety of athletes, from adolescents striving to make their travel team, to elite level collegiate and professional athletes, is unparalleled.
Max will put the utmost intensity into each and every interaction designed individually to help each athlete. When Max presented me with the opportunity to collaborate with The Arm Farm and join this movement as a performance coach and nutritional guidance advisor, I was ecstatic and knew I could not pass it up. The Arm Farm is 1 of 1.
