Health & Fitness

A crucial part of developing perfect tennis skills and techniques is through consistent health and fitness regimens. You need to build strength, stamina, flexibility, agility and balance, which can give you strong arms for a killer backhand, and leg muscles to quickly move around the court. These are the focus areas that our fitness gym and personal trainers provide at Giammalva Racquet Club. We believe that tennis is more than just a sport–it’s about staying active while having fun!

Group Fitness Classes

Our personal trainers specifically design programs to help reduce the aches and pains that impact our enjoyment of tennis. The results have all been wonderful. Aching shoulders, sore backs, old, painful leg injuries, and restricted flexibility and mobility have all been noticeably improved. Even though it’s a class, our trainers give personal attention to the specific issues of each class member and scale the programs to address your needs.

YOGA:  Transform body, mind and spirit through a flowing series of postures and breathing skills.  These classes will help you relax and increase flexibility, body awareness and self-control, you will feel refreshed after every class.

TRX COMPLETE FITNESS:  Improve your stabilizer muscles and core strength using a combination of suspension training and free weight exercise.  TRX is a suspension training system which allows you to use your bodyweight as resistance with varying degrees of intensity to target all the major muscle groups in the body.  Every move places a strong demand on the muscles of the midsection so you develop a powerful core.

BODY RECOVERY:  Great for recovering from, or preparing for physical activity.  Advanced stretching drills and rolling techniques for peak performance.  Foam rolling is a relatively new form of rehab work in the fitness world, but many have already experienced the benefits of these techniques.  Like a deep tissue massage, these exercises work out tight spots and adhesions in your muscles that impede your movement and can even cause pain.  Experience the difference in how you feel and move, and you will want to make it a part of your regular routine.

PEAK FITNESS:  Fun, fast, fat burning exercise for everyone.  This class offers a short circuit training workout that gets your whole body moving and working.  These classes will increase your muscular endurance, cardiovascular health and work capacity.

Personal Training

ONE-ON-ONE TRAINING:  Our personal trainers are certified and have many years of experience helping people build strong bodies and improve overall health and well-being. They also have the knowledge necessary to help tennis players with specific pains related to playing the game. To sign up for a one-on-one session or group training class, contact us today!

TOTAL TRAINING (SMALL GROUP TRAINING):  These classes are setup at different times depending on the availability of the clients, which offers more flexibility.  Total Training allows each person in the group to have a personalized program and more individual attention since the ratio is never more than four clients to one trainer.  More affordable than one-on-one personal training, but still offering the benefits of custom tailored workout routines.
