At Norton Performance, our training begins with a very detailed analysis of the athlete. Once the analysis is completed, we give the athlete exactly what he or she needs to improve their strength, power, stability, mobility and central movements needed for their given sport, position, and unique physical needs. It is about training the athlete intelligently so their hard work doesn’t go to waste, and actually transfers to their respective sport while also minimizing injury risks.

Norton Performance is having a huge impact on baseball in the state of Utah and beyond. They know the unique demands of an overhead throwing athlete and know how to train them the correct way. They are very thorough with the use of J-Bands to keep their athlete’s arms healthy and performing at a high level. We trust them with any athlete who wants to keep their arms healthy and performing at a high level.
Ricky Norton and the staff at Norton Performance - Incredible! The level of competency and professionalism they reveal is unequivocally undisputed in the state of Utah. I send my children to Ricky for their athletic development. I can't think of a better endorsement and compliment towards their abilities and service. Their workouts yield great results and the immediate feedback is outstanding. To be the best, you have to see the best. Norton Performance = The Best!
Ricky is the guy for me because he really helped get me to the next level and will continue to help me get to the next level. He does things the right way. When I started with Ricky, I felt a difference within a couple workouts we had. The progression I made was crazy and I could tell by just looking at my body. With his testing and the different workouts he prescribes, he will let you know what you need to work on to get to the next level. Being the best is something I always strive for and I know with Ricky he's going to help me along the way.
If you want to play baseball past high school you have to be able to be balanced, powerful, fast, athletic, controlled, string, throw hard, hit hard, and pass the eye test. Ricky has provided our players an essential and advanced training model that has transformed our players into better athletes. Not your typical lifting program, Ricky provides cutting edge knowledge and experience providing an advanced baseball training experience most players never access at any level.
My arm and body have never felt better. I have trained with Norton the last couple off seasons and it has made a huge difference with my abilities on the mound. I have gained about 5-6 mph going from 88-89 to 93-94. I am also able to go deeper into games.
Norton killed it for me..I’m taking this like a religion with what he did with me and I’m super-excited.
Norton Performance is the perfect place not just for strength but balance and stability as well. They helped me get ready for the season in every way; helped me in every aspect of the game. This is the place to be. They do it right.
My time training with Norton Performance has been a big reason for my success on the baseball field. I have especially seen huge improvements in my bad speed and power at the plate
We love what the guys at Norton Performance do with their athletes. They are data-driven and know their sports science. They do things right. We trust them with the ability to assess and apply our Plyocare balls and weighted Baseballs appropriately for the safest and best results. They continue to do an amazing job with all of their baseball athletes.
The Norton performance Team are tremendous coaches and leaders. They are always striving to learn and implement new approaches in training and sports performance. Their vast combination of talents and experience puts their training program ahead of the competition.
Ricky Norton and his team are on the cutting edge of applied sports science. Their unique biomechanics lab integrated with their state of the art strength and performance center allows them to apply the data they collect from their athletes to better improve their athlete's strength, mobility, athleticism, and overall performance. Very few in America are able to do what Norton is doing to help increase rotational power and enhance the power of the swing
I have never been able to look and feel strong while maintaining adequate flexibility and mobility. This all changed when I met Ricky and started working out at Norton Performance. Ricky is on top of the game both intellectually and technologically. He combines the latest in sports science and uses cutting-edge technology in creating training programs individually catered to his athletes. Not only am I a more powerful athlete, but I am also a more flexible athlete, which helps me consistently stay on the field and feel my best throughout the course of a long baseball season
Ricky Norton came to me as a college athlete many years back in the early days of P3. He was one of the hardest workers we have ever had in our facility and his improvements as an athlete reflected that. That work ethic has now transferred to his passion for training and helping other athletes. He has studied and learned earnestly from us here at P3 and on his own, to be able to help his athletes reach their full potential. I trust that he will get great results with any athlete who is willing to put in the work with him.
