We can't answer that for you… but we can tell you why we as tennis fitness trainers, devote so much time working with and helping players be the best they can be……
Do you need to ask yourself the 6 WHY QUESTIONS?
Why do we want to help tennis players? We want to help and give tennis players every opportunity to reach their maximum potential and become a professional tennis player.
Why? Because most tennis players will never be given the opportunity or continue to play after the age of 20 years old (due to injury or lack of passion)
Why? Because parents, coaches, players need education. Their eyes need to be opened. They need to utilise all the resources available and be involved with a good support team, with people know what it takes and is specialised in their field.
Why? Because making it to the top, there is a lot more involved than hours and hours on court hitting loads of green fluffy balls Eg structure, planning, nutrition, injury prevention, tennis fitness and conditioning, goal setting, hydration, recovery etc ..... There a so many areas people miss.
Why? Because we care and want to help tennis players reach their maximal potential, remain injury free and give them every opportunity to make it as a professional.
Why? Because there is so many great tennis players out there, that will never make it, whether it's on the pro circuit, scholarships etc. Due to lack of passion, direction, guidance, injury, fitness etc Young tennis players need to learn how to take control of their career at a young age and learn and understand what it takes to make it.
Ok, now it's your turn! Write down the 6 WHY'S that motivate you to play.
