We have been working on the performance side of tennis players for the last four months at the Terminus Club. Using data from local professionals, highly ranked juniors, touring professionals, and recreational players we have been able to gather data which breaks down a players swing path, body position, set-up, contact point, and finish. The technology shows precisely what makes each player different. With 3D Motion Capture Technology we can recreate every shot to place a recreation player in the same position as a professional tour player. The recreational player may not be able to recreate the swing or set-up due to coordination issues which will take the time of lessons at our 2D room or on court work with an area professional using our data. We also find that the player may have physical limitations that need specific performance enhancing to even start to make a technical change. This technology is not just for the recreational player. Tennis at an elite level is extremely unhealthy to your body if you have issues with any area of your body please come see us for a 3D Screening with our Physical Therapist.
As a High Performance coach I run into many players who accept a level of tennis play due to ability, age, or experience. At Terminus you will never plateau the level you play today is in your past. We encourage players who are taking lessons to bring there coach with them. The technology will enhance your future lessons with your professional. It will give your coach the ability to understand why each player though shown a similar approach will react so differently. It has answered so many questions I have had with my on court lessons and has made a world of difference in my teaching approach. To get information on some of the tour player workouts please click.

Attachment – Training With Federer
- Roger Federer is far from being content with his No1 ranking.
- His training regime reflects his desire to retain this ranking for a long time to come.
- And since he has found that the more work he does off court results in better results on it, he takes his training very seriously indeed.
- There are two of his favourite exercises that can be of benefit to you so here they are!
Lateral Lunges with a twist
- Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart.
- Lunge with your left leg out at a 45-degree angle then twist the left side of your torso forward.
- Hold then return to your starting position before repeating with right leg.
- Perform 10 repetions on each side.
- As you get stronger, you can start to use a barbell across your shoulders for added resistance.
Medicine Ball toss
- This improves your agility and strengthens your core and upper body.
- Stand across the net from a partner, with both of you at the singles sideline, about halfway back to the service line.
- Moving quickly across the court using shuffle steps, pass a medicine ball of comfortable weight back and forth, keeping the ball at chest level.
- Go from sideline to sideline three times.
