THE

HOLISTIC

TENNIS

ATHLETE

|TRAININGSPHILOSOPHIE

My greatest interest as a coach has always been the holistic approach: How can I pick up the player at his personal level of performance? What are his strengths and where is there still room for improvement? How do we get there together? What is the real problem?

We start by analysing and testing the current situation: physical performance, technical skills, but also mental abilities (e.g. training vs. match) – this is necessary to identify and then eliminate the sources of error. Sometimes the problems lie deeper than you think, for example in wrong beliefs (“I never could do a backhand”). Through the holistic approach I am able to improve my students in a sustainable and long-term way. For example, your serve movement can be limited by limited mobility in the thoracic spine, you have problems getting into the “Trophy” position (BODY). The problems with the serve can also be caused by a wrong grip, a wrong movement of the arm (pronation), timing (SKILL) – or you fall down in the serve, which is usually more of a mental problem (MIND).

In order to get the maximum tennis performance out of you, you have to improve your physical skills, your strokes – but also your head in the right direction. The most important part of this is also the biggest challenge: All this should be achieved with as little effort as possible. After all, we all have only limited time and energy that we can and want to invest in improving our tennis game. The good news is that you don’t have to learn to know more. I have the knowledge. And that is why you are here.

/ ABOUT YOU

What you can learn

Some days you can hit the ball clean and some days you can not hit anything perfectly? You basically know that it takes more than proper technique to play better tennis? That in addition to honing your technique, factors such as tennis athletics (strength, speed, mpbility and agility) and mental attitude also play an important role?

Then you are exactly right with me. A coach who promises you to improve within one hour can’t be good. Its a long process, besindes the fact, that the only person who can get better, is you. I can only guide you to your best version. Tennis is one of the most complex sports of all. Only those who understand the connections can really help you to improve your game long-lasting.

We humans are complex, tennis is complex. Let’s go on a journey together, become a

“Holistic Tennis Athlete.”

I look forward to seeing you!
