Photo Post: America’s Most Scenic Ballpark – Point Loma Nazarene

right 2

By pure happenstance, on Thursday I discovered America’s Most Scenic Ballpark, which resides at Point Loma Nazarene University in Point Loma. See and judge for yourself.

Strangely, I didn’t even notice the sign at first. I must’ve been distracted by something – something blue, maybe? Just maybe?

Anybody else ready to catch a game here?

I swear there was a sailboat playing deep left.

… home of the Sea Lions!

Field view, blissfully above sea level.

And deep right ain’t bad either.

And we close with a video view of the Most Scenic Ballpark. Anyone disagree? Go Sea Lions!

Photo Post: An Inside Look at SKLZ

You’re going to be reading more about SKLZ on the blog very soon, so I’m going to fast-forward the company story for now except to say that SLKZ is a company involved in the training of elite athletes. They produce unique training products meant to enhance athletic performance and those training tools are then employed in intense workouts that take place at the SKLZ headquarters in Carlsbad.

Today, I just wanted to take you inside the SKLZ facility, which has a heavily industrial feel, start with its front door. Beyond that, we’re going to show you what an elite athlete training facility looks like, but we advise you to take the tour on your own if you can because the entire place is an experience. SKLZ is located on Faraday Ave., not far from TaylorMade Golf.

You can read more about them at www.sklz.com.

To the tour …

frontdoor

Even if it’s automated, merely walking through the front door at SKLZ is a confidence builder. It feels like you just opened something with the tonnage of a bank vault door. It sets the ton for what you experience inside.

This is the main gym floor, equipped with the latest in weight and resistance training equipment. You can’t see it very well here, but the far wall is marked with a bunch of black streaks. Those are from medicine balls being flung against it. When you see where those marks are, you know we’re talking about some serious strength.

field

Step out about and you discover the facility’s 50 yards of artificial turf. I trained here for my golf workout piece for Southland Golf. Among the exercises, my trainer had my balance on the goal line. I was doing half OK until he said, “Now close your eyes.” Uh, oh.

This is the other half of the field, just to show the rest of the space. You can do a lot training with 50 yards of turf. We did plenty in just 15 minutes.

mural

As any good training space should, SKLZ is decorated with a number of motivational murals. I love this stuff.

trainingaids

This is the best photo representation of what SKLZ does. These are the their golf training aids. They also work with football, baseball/softball, basketball and soccer. They are in constant creative mode, developing products that can help athletes reach their full potential.

My training piece in Southland Golf should be posted. Look for it on the blog under the Southland Golf tab.
