Refreshing Insight Into Tennis Fitness and Beyond! Dec 15 2010
By Wesley - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As an athlete and parent of an athlete, Suzanna's book gives practical advice on exercises to help maintain balance in your fitness routine. Many injuries I have observed over the years in adult tennis are result of natural imbalances in tennis motions which tends to favor one side of the body. Suzanna drives home the point that it is important to maintain your core performance through exercises that balance the muscles and joints throughout the body. As a multiple sport athlete, the exercises and stretches work for many sports and she has gotten me to rethink my training routine. This is a great book for teaching tennis pros as well!

A way to understand why I get injured and what to do about it Oct. 11 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
I've been playing tennis for 25 years, and the first 20 went by without a serious injury. But once I got hurt, I couldn't figure out how to recover. I had a job that had me sitting down for 10+ hours a day, and I just started getting less and less able to play tennis without pain. The exercises Suzanna describes in this book helped me to recover from those injuries, and to condition my body to avoid injury from the stresses of playing tennis. They also showed me how to compensate for a variety of the stresses I was inflicting on my body as part of my desk job. I highly recommend the book both for the explanations it gives of the types of stresses that lead to injury, and the excellent photos and descriptions that make it possible to understand how to do each exercise and what to focus on.

Guys, this book is especially for you, too. Jan. 27 2012
By CharlieinNeedham - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I know most tough guys are not going to get past the front cover. There is no picture of Verdasco on the cover, and the author is not Arnold Bonecrusher. There is not even one chapter on "How to squat your pickup truck".
Get it anyway.
Playing tennis all too commonly results in overuse injuries. Instead of feeling better from playing, many are injured and sore.
And getting you in better shape for tennis is only the beginning. It will get you in great shape to really enjoy life - no more sore back, aching shoulders and lack of energy.
So this book could be the salvation for many a weekend warrior or league layer not yet in shape.
More, it has the information to contribute to all those who think they are already reasonably fit, but are looking for a book for more great tips and how to put it all together.
It is incredibly well organized to check on sensible advice on how to treat sore knees, elbows, shoulders, etc., clear direct instructions and pics on how and why to do add specific exercises/stretches into your routine, and great advice on such diverse topics as nutrition and hydration to even a great dynamic warm-up drill before play.
What a great read.
So sensible. So refreshingly uncomplicated.
It reads like People magazine but with the huge difference that here wisdom oozes throughout.
Just the right pic to illustrate the point.
This is THE primer for tennis players looking to start getting really fit.
The author is a champion body builder who could crush most of us, but doesn't include weight work in the book. For that you you'll have to turn to Mark Rippetoe's Starting Stength.
And there aren't High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT)and Agility drills - but these are easily obtainable elsewhere.
But guys, until she comes out with that Arnold Bonecrusher edition, get this book now as it is and profit from it.

LOVE this book!! May 17 2011
By Janet Kolbu - Published on
Format: Paperback
Suzanna has assembled a massive amount of information and presented it in a way that is concise yet thorough. It's the type of book you'll want to keep with you, marked up to remind you what kind of stretches to do. The chapters are short and easy to read, with excellent photos to demonstrate everything, as well as an overall positive and upbeat tone, assuring that you really CAN do it!

As a tennis player, I especially appreciate her tips on preventing injuries. It's very helpful to read not only the "what to do", but "why it happened" and "how this will help". I have a much better understanding of my body now, thanks to this book.

It is a handbook for pain and injury free tennis March 31 2012
By Sengil - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am 64 years old tennis player and fun. Tennis is my favorite sport since thirty years.After reading more than 40 books of tennis during my playing time related with mental,strengthening,stretching,endurance,conditioning,nutrition,technics,gears,apparels and novels,memoirs etc., I can put this Suzanna's book at one of the best of them.This book is only with me in a month time,but I recovered and improved my fitness already a lot as an elder tennis player.It is written in a very simple,concise and understandable way.The advises are very practical and applicable in a daily and routine manner whatever your lifestyle is, to play a pain and injury free tennis.When you apply the exercises in the book, then you will see how the modest effort applied over the mid term will bring excellent results. You will learn also how to listen your body to respond properly.You need only to be aware,patient and a little bit of discipline.It is an executive summary compressed with a lot of knowledge in a pocket book for pain and injury free tennis. It is a re-readable book to be kept in tennis bag.I am captain of a veteran team with 15 players. I will advise them all my players to own this book.Just after, I am sure they,each and all,will be thankful to me, then I will convey their thanks to Suzanna.
