Movement & Mind Training for Athletes

Group Training Available
As tennis players, we often learn how to swing the racquet, but we do not learn how to first get to the ball. We learn how to serve a ball into a small box, but we do not learn how to quiet the noise in our brain 'helping' us to decide what kind of second serve to use. As tennis players, we trick ourselves into believing that on court training is enough, but we fail to recognize that we have no idea that an off court fitness program is essential to moving up in the ranks.
This training is for the players who are taking an active role in their tennis game. It is a type of program that requires at least six months of regular weekly training to see results. My recommendation for on court tennis training and this "Movement & Mind," training is a ratio of 2:1, 3:1.5 or 4:2. Meaning, on court tennis training two days a week with Movement & Mind training one day a week, etc. The more serious you are about your tennis game, the more you need to be seeing me for training. If you really are looking to be a 4.5+ USTA player or a college level athlete, for example, match play (i.e. lots of sets) should be half of all of your on court tennis training. Mr. Jorge Capestany has written about this ratio, a man who knows more than any of us in his thirty three years of experience.
Click the button, "Workout Example," at the top of this page, for part of the physical training component. The mental part of the training is something that can not be written out so easily, and I will teach you in person. As a licensed psychologist, and continuing competitive athlete myself, let my years of experience and education benefit YOU to be successful.
