What will the King of the Hill help you achieve?(with proper pitching mechanics)

  • Help develop an awareness of their your LOWER HALF off the mound
  • Gradually increase the leg drive toward home plate
  • Better separation between upper & lower body
  • In turn creates more elastic energy that is transferred through the core
  • This improves upper body’s ability to accelerate and rotate
  • While creating faster arm speed and higher velocity at the release
  • The initial boost of energy from the legs will relieve the arm of having to produce as much velocity
  • In turn will reduce stress on the pitching arm
  • Provides immediate feedback with an audible noise(BANG)
  • The BANG tells the player they are using/creating GROUND FORCE
  • King of the Hill gives you the ability to gradually increase your leg drive by increasing the resistance of the of the Trainer


  • “I have been doing pitching lessons for over 12 years and have seen nothing

    like this product. I believe teaching the bottom half to work is the toughest thing to teach, but with this product you can hear and feel exactly what your bottom half is doing.

    It is the only immediate feedback tool I have seen that my students actually can not only hear when they do it correctly but feel when the are driving with their back leg!

    I use video with my students, but with video you can not feel it only see it.”

    “I wish this was around when I was playing to see if I could have thrown harder”.

  • “The King of the Hill Trainer is a good toll to help you generate energy off the backside and feel the drive and explosion off the rubber.”

    “When done correctly, this should help take stress off the arm and generate more arm speed for increased velocity.”

    “We liked it enough, we just ordered another one!”

  • “The King of the Hill Leg Drive Trainer is a great tool to create awareness in the feet as to when to initiate back leg drive.  It provides immediate auditory and sensory feedback to the pitcher which helps create awareness to the timing.  I highly recommend this trainer to any pitcher try to maximize their power and movement efficiency down the slop!”

  • “The king of the Hill Trainer is a true enhancer of the pitching delivery.  It not only gives your pitchers a feel for the backside involvement…. It gives auditory stimulation that allows for the pitcher to hear and feel the use as well.  In addition, it does not allow the pitcher to cheat as it makes you fully engage into the backside to create your own force.  The King of the Hill will be something that is in our program for years to come” – Coach Anthony Decicco.

  • “It is a fact that leg drive is a result of increased intent and contributes to elevating velocity.  There is not better assistance for awareness than the King of the Hill Leg Drive Trainer.  It is a better coach than I could ever be!”

    “By the auditory feedback of the click it sends the message of a perfect rep. The gauge monitors the current level, gives challenge to increase in ability, bringing about the awareness of improvement.”

    “What more could one ask to improving their ballplayers?  The King of the Hill Leg Drive Trainer should be in every facility in the country.  If you work with pitchers (baseball or softball) and your goal is to help them to the next level… Why don’t you have one?!?”

  • “The King of the Hill Trainer helps train the pitcher on how to engage the lower half… We now have 7 trainers in the Cubs organization!” – Derek Johnson

  • “Rich Dunno is my favorite type of pitching coach. He is constantly in search of a better way of creating feel images for his clients. When Rich asked me to look at his newest device I immediately agreed. The concept of utilizing lateral force and recruiting the gluteus medius is critically important to both velocity creation and arm health and durability. I applaud Rich for his constant innovation and his recent attempts to actually have athletes ‘feel’ what it means to efficiently load and unload their lower half.

    Well done Rich! Keep up the great work”.
