▪ Co-founder/president | Cressey Sports Performance
Eric Cressey is the first to admit he never set out to become the go-to trainer for professional baseball players that find themselves in New England for one reason or another. That’s just the way it’s worked out. Cressey is the president and co-founder of Cressey Sports Performance, which opened in Hudson, Mass., in 2007. After building a clientele list that includes Cy Young winners and top draft picks, Cressey opened a second facility in Jupiter, Fla., in 2014.
Cressey’s client list rivals that of any trainer across the county. In 2017, two Cressey clients — Cleveland Indians pitcher Corey Kluber and Washington Nationals pitcher Max Scherzer — swept the AL and NL Cy Young awards, respectively. In 2018, Cressey trained five players (Scherzer, Kluber, Miles Mikolas, Noah Syndergaard, Blake Treinen) that finished in the top 20 among all MLB pitchers in WAR.
