5.0 out of 5 stars Best Body Phsical balance book ever!!!!!! 8 April 2017
By Skinny Bones Ben - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This book saved my knee pain and my lower back pain … as long as I maintain these balancing exercises that Sueanna developed, I physically feel great!!!!!!! Sueanna sets the stage for you to develop excellent body awareness and balancing of left & right sides of the body. As a active tennis player & coach, I was very aware of this "out of balance " but did not have the tools to re-balance with regular exercise. This book is excellent for older seasoned citizens , very gentle exercises in the beginning of the book is perfect for the "older " population.

5.0 out of 5 stars Guys, this book is especially for you, too. 28 January 2012
By CharlieinNeedham - Published on Amazon.com

I know most tough guys are not going to get past the front cover. There is no picture of Verdasco on the cover, and the author is not Arnold Bonecrusher. There is not even one chapter on "How to squat your pickup truck".
Get it anyway.
Playing tennis all too commonly results in overuse injuries. Instead of feeling better from playing, many are injured and sore.
And getting you in better shape for tennis is only the beginning. It will get you in great shape to really enjoy life - no more sore back, aching shoulders and lack of energy.
So this book could be the salvation for many a weekend warrior or league layer not yet in shape.
More, it has the information to contribute to all those who think they are already reasonably fit, but are looking for a book for more great tips and how to put it all together.
It is incredibly well organized to check on sensible advice on how to treat sore knees, elbows, shoulders, etc., clear direct instructions and pics on how and why to do add specific exercises/stretches into your routine, and great advice on such diverse topics as nutrition and hydration to even a great dynamic warm-up drill before play.
What a great read.
So sensible. So refreshingly uncomplicated.
It reads like People magazine but with the huge difference that here wisdom oozes throughout.
Just the right pic to illustrate the point.
This is THE primer for tennis players looking to start getting really fit.
The author is a champion body builder who could crush most of us, but doesn't include weight work in the book. For that you you'll have to turn to Mark Rippetoe's Starting Stength.
And there aren't High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT)and Agility drills - but these are easily obtainable elsewhere.
But guys, until she comes out with that Arnold Bonecrusher edition, get this book now as it is and profit from it.

5.0 out of 5 stars It is a handbook for pain and injury free tennis 1 April 2012
By Sengil - Published on Amazon.com

I am 64 years old tennis player and fun. Tennis is my favorite sport since thirty years.After reading more than 40 books of tennis during my playing time related with mental,strengthening,stretching,endurance,conditioning,nutrition,technics,gears,apparels and novels,memoirs etc., I can put this Suzanna's book at one of the best of them.This book is only with me in a month time,but I recovered and improved my fitness already a lot as an elder tennis player.It is written in a very simple,concise and understandable way.The advises are very practical and applicable in a daily and routine manner whatever your lifestyle is, to play a pain and injury free tennis.When you apply the exercises in the book, then you will see how the modest effort applied over the mid term will bring excellent results. You will learn also how to listen your body to respond properly.You need only to be aware,patient and a little bit of discipline.It is an executive summary compressed with a lot of knowledge in a pocket book for pain and injury free tennis. It is a re-readable book to be kept in tennis bag.I am captain of a veteran team with 15 players. I will advise them all my players to own this book.Just after, I am sure they,each and all,will be thankful to me, then I will convey their thanks to Suzanna.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great exercises & stretches 4 May 2013
By LoveToLearn - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
What I particularly like is that she talks about trigger points and myofascial release, something that few fitness books talk about but such an important topic for full healing.

Although the book is laid out in a logical fashion, I feel that you need a good understanding of the body to make full use of the knowledge in here. In the next edition, I'd like to see an introductory section with diagrams and page references for general fitness and specific injury / rehab programs. I'm a visual person and I am spending a lot of time flipping back and forth, trying to figure out what I need right now and what I need to add later. Perhaps her intention was to ensure that I investigate the whole book by not spoon-feeding me. Well, it certainly worked!

However, I would still recommend it to every person concerned with fitness - tennis player or not.

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing Insight Into Tennis Fitness and Beyond! 16 December 2010
By Wesley - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
As an athlete and parent of an athlete, Suzanna's book gives practical advice on exercises to help maintain balance in your fitness routine. Many injuries I have observed over the years in adult tennis are result of natural imbalances in tennis motions which tends to favor one side of the body. Suzanna drives home the point that it is important to maintain your core performance through exercises that balance the muscles and joints throughout the body. As a multiple sport athlete, the exercises and stretches work for many sports and she has gotten me to rethink my training routine. This is a great book for teaching tennis pros as well!
