Tennis Mind Strategy: The mind is a powerful thing and if utilized in the wrong way, could potentially spell D-I-S-A-S-T-E-R! That's why we must focus our inner energies on developing ourselves each day. A well rehearsed plan is the beginning process to ensuring the continuity of our success. Therefore, we must be diligent in our work and pay mind to those that we surround ourselves with.
Tennis Mind Tip: Have you thought about changing stringing tensions to either enhance or decrease the amount of control or power? Have you consulted a certified racquet technician for further support and guidance? If not, don't worry, here at Tennis Mind we have you covered. Simply, leave your comment or inquiry below and a representative from our support team will get back in touch with you. Thank you for having a Tennis Mind!
Tennis Mind Strategy: The power of communication isn't enough to be an influential positive game changer these days. You must know yourself completely in order to know where the inner drivers lie (passion). In this sense, a coach must always be on the pathway to least resistance and continue forth with furthering his or her education and knowledge. By doing this daily, one can arrive at a place of complete knowing and here is where the magic begins.
How mental are you? Do you consider yourself to be a positive mentalist or a negative mentalist? Either way, the perception you have about yourself is a direct reflection of how others may view you both personally and professionally. Therefore, if you wanna increase the positive frequency of your influential effectiveness, then simply begin by perceiving all actions and experiences as a positive learning process.
Tennis Mind Strategy: Having a practice partner during the coaching session can be very important for the development of the player. We feel that coaches should be completely focused on the player being developed. Therefore, whenever possible try to find someone that you can have as a hitting partner for your player and focus all of your mental faculties on the player. This will ensure a comprehensive coaching session.

However, a prompt reply will immediately follow. Thank you again for considering Tennis Mind as your go-to source for news and information.
Tennis Mind Tip: Being an over trained athlete can cause injury to the body in ways you never thought were possible. Having a training regimen that includes 2-3 hours of off court and on court physical activity should be closely regulated and supervised. The best plan of action is to consult with a personal trainer and doctor before beginning any rigorous routine, because you wanna make sure you're healthy mentally and physically to take on the challenges.
Tennis Tip: How do you begin searching for a credible coach that can offer you the best value for your monetary return? Well, the best and greatest resource at your disposal is the hardwork and time you have invested in the research you have done. Remember, you cannot expect value if you do not give value in return. This principle is a universal law and should be approached with caution attached in mind.
This has been a grossly unreported subject matter for many decades, but that doesn't mean we should ignore it ourselves and play chance with the lives of our beloved ones (i.e., junior players of parents). Therefore, it is a moral imperative to seek the best guidance possible from a coach who not only has our childrens best interest at heart, but one who exemplifies all the traits and characteristics of our ideal image of what a true coach should represent.
Tennis Tip: Coaching is an extremely diverse and multi-faceted pursuit always changing directions and constantly seeking an ideal middle ground with our players (students). Therefore, in order to become effective advocates and mentors we must constantly continue our education through the focal point of our passion in order to maintain the highest degree of standards from our players. Once we have achieved this ideal can we begin to transform the lives of the players we have positively impacted both on and off the court for the remainder of their natural lives.
