I got into basketball when I was around six years old. I remember my mom taking me to numerous youth leagues to play in and it opened up a lot of doors for me. Now I get to teach it. I love what I do and I’m, and I’m thankful to have this opportunity for sure. I flat out love basketball, and now I get the opportunity to share what I know, my knowledge of the game, my love and passion for the game, with my players. I’m all about the mental toughness. I’m all about your mental conditioning. Can you push past your boundaries? Do you know what your boundaries are? That’s what I’m about. That’s what my training is. For me, basketball wasn’t necessarily about, you know, the accolades and all that good stuff. Like for me, I’ve always been a part of a good team with good guys.

Fortunately, like, I love the comradery of that. That’s what allowed me to stick with basketball more than anything, because when you build that type of that relationship with your friends and your buddies, man, it’s, it’s something that’s long term. When I see my client, you know, push through and they see themselves, right? They can look at themselves and say, “Wow, I got through that”. Even for that split time, right? That a short, temporary pain, or that’s short, temporary discomfort, then pushing through it and persevering through it. That’s what I liked the most. I want my players to be able to come to me about anything and everything. And know when they come into this gym, oh they’re going to get their time’s worth in here with me and seeing them get that done and see the smile on their face, happy. It gives me the most happiness.

My name is Jeremy Major. I’m from Pasadena, California and I’m the owner of Major Hoops Basketball.
