Tennis Fitness Love… yes, LOVE… we all love playing tennis, but you have to learn how to love fitness to play your best tennis. Practicing tennis-specific, mindful fitness will keep your body fit and healthy, and away from overuse injuries. On this website, you will find all the necessary information for you to understand how overuse injuries happen and what to do to prevent them. You will learn the subtle details of how your body parts and muscle groups should feel so you will be able to react fast and correct all the upcoming imbalances that tennis creates in your body, before they cause more serious problem. You will learn about stretching, self-myofascial release, strengthening your body, nutrition and other performance elements.
You don’t need to spend hours every day to become fit. You just need to be persistent and determined. Even 20 minutes after your tennis practice will make big difference over time. If you already have more or less serious overuse injuries, it is not too late for you either. You need to be very disciplined, but you can get your body back to health and balance.
If you would like to get a new monthly article into your mailbox, so you don’t need to keep coming back and see what’s new, feel free to subscribe to my free newsletter (you will also get the ultimate guide “Strong Core Makes You a Better Athlete” as a complementary gift ).
The most important elements and exercises from this website has been conveniently put together into a book that is small enough to carry with you in your tennis bag, so you can do the routines as often as possible, not just when you are at your computer. The book is available in paper, Kindle and Apple formats.
It has helped many athletes and has been awarded a runner-up place in the 2010 Los Angeles Book Festival. Read more about the book “Tennis Fitness for the Love of it: A Mindful Approach to Fitness for Injury-Free Tennis”. If you like what you read, you can buy it in my store or directly on Amazon.
