At tennis fitness we believe it is very important to assess an athlete and measure where they are at. This gives us the ability to know their current level and establish what level they need to be at (their goal) We firmly believe, if we put all our athletes through a movement analysis, whether that analysis is agility based, speed based, aerobic based or all three. Then incorporate a strength tennis fitness test, we then get a clear cut starting point and an end goal. This is how you educate and motivate an athlete. Check out the tests and give them a go.
If you are lacking motivation this is your starting point.
"What Gets Measured, Gets Managed"
So if you know...
The Value Of A Flexible And Mobile Athlete!
Teaching young athletes how to prepare their bodies for performance is crucial for long term injury prevention and constant physical development.
After performing 100s of junior tennis fitness assessments, postural screens and flexibility assessments we have found most young athletes are falling short with their flexibility and mobility ranges.
Is this fault of their own? It can't be, they just do what they are asked.
There needs to be more focus on this from trainers, coaches and parents.
What we are finding is that young players are exposed to more time on court with no cross over into other sports.
This combination leads to constant loading patterns and in some cases overuse issues.
What is important to realise is that young players, no matter how good they are at 12 years old, if they don't have healthy flexibility and mobility ranges it is only a matter of time before they hit an injury wall.
We see it all the time, its not the best...
