Achieve Your Fitness Goals by Doing Things Differently

I am always very inspired and motivated by people who are consistently successful in what they do, both in life and fitness. In all areas of their lives they repeatedly show success in everything they put their mind into. They motivate me to stay focused on my personal and fitness goals. Successful people are not born that way. They work […]


The Slight Edge in Your Fitness Goals (and Life)

The Slight Edge… what is that? Would you like to have a slight edge in almost everything you do? In your tennis game? In your fitness? In your life? “I have no time” is the biggest and most common objection that I hear from people who would like to get in better fitness shape, either for tennis or just for […]


Become Better, Fitter and Healthier—Do the Work

Become Better Periodically, we get inspired to improve ourselves. We want to become better in some area.  We want to play better tennis. Get fitter. Get leaner. Get stronger. Improve our business or personal lives. Eat healthier. The only way to succeed is to get motivated, get off the couch and make it happen. Don’t just hope for success. Rather ignite […]

Dehydration and Workout: Tired & Unmotivated to Practice?

Dehydration and workout motivation, or rather “unmotivation”, go hand in hand. If there is a bathroom in close proximity, it takes about 2 minutes to go pee-pee. It doesn’t seem so much, but if you have to go every hour and in situations where a pee-pee break may seem less appropriate or disturbing to your surroundings—school class, business meeting, middle […]


Jump Rope Into Awesome Tennis Fitness Shape

To play great tennis, you have to have proper footwork: small steps, the ability to change direction quickly, and being on balance while moving forward, backward and sideways. Unfortunately, most tennis players do not pay enough attention to footwork. They might go for a run, but long distance running will not improve the footwork. Good footwork drills should imitate the movements […]

Flexible Hip Flexors and Healthy Feet will Improve your Tennis Fitness

Working on your tennis game, just as your fitness and health, is a life-long process. Make you sure you stay persistent and enjoy the process. I have just read and interesting philosophy from Jim Rohn (www.JimRohn.com) whom’s teachings I greatly admire. They are simple and powerful. His ant philosophy applies to life and our athletic endeavors. “I think everybody should […]


Self-Correct Misaligned Hips to Prevent Overuse Injuries

Injuries are not fun. They can sideline you from training for long time. The two kinds of injuries are acute and overuse injuries. Acute injuries happen when you fall, twist, or break something, or somebody or something hits you. Acute injuries are easy to notice, because they hurt, swell, or bleed, and you need an immediate medical attention. The other […]
