scf_hrs_hrs_1(Scottsdale, Ariz. Dec 20, 2012) – Method Athlete, a training and fitness facility that combines proven methodology with practical, expert training, joins forces with Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort and Spa at Gainey Ranch to provide a complete fitness and training program for tennis players of all skill sets.


The Total Tennis Performance Program addresses every aspect of a player’s game starting with strength and fitness training and ending with performance and skill set on the court.


"As a fitness trainer, I often help tennis players through injuries in the areas of the knee, shoulder, elbow and ankle," says Mark Norton, general manager and fitness trainer at Method Athlete. "Players spend a lot of time focusing on the specifics of their game, but less on strength and conditioning. The Total Tennis Performance Program will change all of that. We will help build strength and agility while also addressing the mechanics of their game.  Tennis players will become stronger, quicker and reduce the risk of injuries. Ultimately, they will become better, healthier tennis players."


Classes will begin January 7th, 2013 and training will take place at the Hyatt at Gainey Ranch Tennis Courts. The program will start with on-court group classes that focus on increased mobility, strength, and stability and combine the expertise of the Director of Tennis, Joshua Cooperman, for 20BuckRate_Gaineyoverall game-specific stroke and technique performance. Each player will receive a specific conditioning program that will improve any player’s game.


NOTE: Special $20/session for USTA members and discounts off of private lessons. Email joshua@scottsdaletennis.org or call 480-335-6263 for details! 



"Whether someone is a tournament level player or a beginner releasing some stress on the court, there is always value in learning how to do something you enjoy a little better," says Joshua Cooperman, director of tennis, Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort and Spa.  "Fitness, strength and conditioning are critical on the court no matter how old you are or what level you are playing.  While a lot of time is spent on the improving technique, consistency and implementing strategy, it seems that footwork, strength, balance and overall conditioning is neglected for the most part.  We have developed a blueprint that will allow all players access to the fitness side of tennis and ultimately help players reach the next level of their game."


The Total Tennis Performance program begins January 7th, 2012. Prices range from $20-$30 per class. To sign up or request more information, please visit the program website.
