Tennis coach Nick Bollettieri spoke to participants at the TRX Cardio Tennis Pilot Training Course held at IMG Academies in Bradenton, Fla., July 21-22. The legendary coach, who will be inducted into the Tennis Industry Hall of Fame on Aug. 24 in New York, talked to attendees about how a healthy lifestyle and exercise promotes longevity and slows down the aging process.
The first day of the course was a Cardio Tennis workshop, led by Cardio Tennis Program Manager Michele Krause. The second day was a full TRX Cardio Tennis session, led by TRX Director of Life Sports Dorian Adam and Krause.
Participants, which also included fitness professionals who for the most part had little or no tennis experience, trained wearing heart-rate monitors for both days, learning the importance of using the monitors as training tools, Krause says. They also learned and practiced more than 25 TRX exercises. Participants who attended both days are now authorized to deliver TRX Cardio Tennis.
"Spending two days in Bradenton in July heat doing intense Cardio Tennis and TRX Cardio Tennis activity is no easy task,” Krause says. “But this group was hearty and came out of it with a thorough and in-depth knowledge of both programs. Thanks to IMG Academies for hosting and Gatorade for hydration and recovery in the intense Florida heat and humidity."
The TRX Cardio Tennis workshop in Bradenton was the third in the national rollout of the program. The first was in April at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York, followed by a session in May at the Claremont Resort and Spa in Berkeley, Calif. The Tennis Industry Association, which manages Cardio Tennis®, partnered with Fitness Anywhere, LLC., owner of TRX Suspension Training® to bring this innovative training system to the courts.
