Personal Trainer Highlight- IF THIS RACKET COULD TALK…

imgA few months ago, while moving boxes at home, I reconnected with an old friend; my tennis racquet! Pictured here is a somewhat legendary Wilson T-3000. I’ll admit, it’s kind of a dinosaur (come to think of it – so am I). But it was my first real tennis racket and it’s served me well with many wonderful memories.

I haven’t played tennis for some time, however I find myself occasionally watching the play here at La Madrona. Over the past 40 years I’m betting there have been some real improvements of tennis racket design and manufacturing. Plus given that I’m no longer 25, a more mature body may require a different kind of racket and possibly even a different approach to the game.

With the passage of time plus new information, transformational opportunities abound in any sport or industry. I’ve helped a number mature adults successfully reinvigorate their bodies for activities that they love; tennis, golf and running. By utilizing TRX suspension training, they have gained much needed core strength, mobility, flexibility, balance and endurance.

As I might want to look beyond my old T-3000, you might consider checking out new possibilities for your overall training. Conversation is always fun - let’s talk. And although I’m a little rusty, I’d even bring my T-3000!
