Fitness training lessons for Tennis: Tennis is a unique sport where an altogether different approach to the fitness is required. Tennis needs short and explosive bursts of speed, agility and direction changes over possibly 3 sets or 2 hrs of intense ball hitting which requires a lot of stamina. So there are a lot of areas to cover in just the fitness aspect of tennis.

Before the early 80's, there was not much emphasis placed on fitness in tennis. But thanks to players like Martina Navratilova, Ivan Lendl and many more fitness really has come into the limelight. But the key lies in being able to tailor-make the drills and exercises specifically for tennis. That's why tennis players spend more time in the gym and work on their fitness level.
