Knowledge is power

Below you can watch a video or Mark discussing the importance of tennis coaches being familiar with the necessary strength and conditioning needed to compete at all levels of the game. One of the certifications considered within the industry as the 'gold standard' is the NSCA-CSCS which provides in depth analysis on all areas of an athlete's life including; Nutrition, Periodization, Aerobic and Anaerobic conditioning, Scheduling, Plyometircs, Weight lifting and psychology.

Tennis has become a more physical sport in the last decade and the importance of not only being a good ball striker but becoming a better athlete has become key. Many tennis players, whether recreational or professional, neglect the importance of finding a tennis specific fitness program that will allow for the greatest benefits. Currently professional players such as Novak Djokovic and Samantha Stosur are 'raising the bar' in terms of the physical attributes required to thrive at the elite levels of the game, and there hard work on and off the court has allowed the game to evolve in to the exciting and dynamic game that it has become.
