Output Performance & BABA

Output Performance is proud to partner with Brains & Brawn Athletics (BABA) to provide online programming for powerlifters and general fitness athletes.

Headed by Dr. Rachel Horton (PT) and elite powerlifter Mike Horton, BABA provides an experienced and effective solution to your programming needs by considering your current health, long-terms goals, and capabilities via video-conferencing and video analysis.

All programming is discounted to $80/mo. so long as athlete is executing on program at Output Performance on a monthly basis at $80/mo.

Why Remote Coaching?

The idea of remote programming and coaching may seem counterintuitive and ineffective. In many cases, this perception is met by this unfortunate reality because many online programmers simply reuse a template over and over again and discount accountability. This is where the partnership between BABA and Output Performance shines. Each participating athlete receives treatment (programming, communication, accountability, and video analysis) coinciding with their short- and long-term goals. In addition to the programming provided by BABA, athletes will have access to Output’s 4200 sq. ft. facility and state-of-the-art powerlifting equipment.

Rachel and Michael Horton created BrainsANDBrawn Athletics because they were tired of seeing and receiving cookie-cutter programs with little to no actual coaching involved. With BABA, elite powerlifter Michael pairs with Rachel, international elite powerlifter and Doctor of Physical Therapy to bring you science-based, individualized programming.

The Output Performance and BABA collaboration closes the loop of remote programming by providing a daily in-person presence. You receive not only weekly updates from BABA, but also access to the coaches at Output to assist you in person on a daily basis. You are never left alone to figure it out by yourself!

Technique Analysis

Any good coach — in person or remote – should be analyzing and correcting your form to allow you to utilize your strengths to achieve the highest numbers possible as well as prevent injury. A complete technique analysis is completed at the initiation of your program and continued on a weekly basis through videos uploaded to our platform.

Individualized Programming

You will never get a cookie cutter program from us. You are an individual with unique goals. This means your program will be designed specifically to your strengths and weaknesses to enable you to achieve your goals. Our programming is delivered to you on a weekly basis so that it can evolve with your progress. This includes meet or show preparation consisting of ramping up, deload and peak weeks.

Frequent Touch-ins

We hate to say weekly because most often it ends up being more than that. BABA is available on a daily basis through email and text, with video-
conferencing available (if needed). You should never expect to wait more than 48 hours for a response. This paired with the in house coaching staff, means all of your needs will be met immediately.
