Who am I? Why have I decided to start a blog? How will this blog bring value to your life? These are a few of the questions I will answer for you in my first ever blog post.


Who Am I?

Imagine you have over 25 years of tennis experience under your belt. You have played on the centre court of Wimbledon, Australian Open, US Open and the French Open with millions of eyes watching your every move. Holding their breath and praying for your victory or defeat. You have heard the roar of the crowd as you lift the Wimbledon trophy above your head and felt the crushing disappointment of not being able to compete because of injury. And you have felt the thrill of helping professional tennis players fix their game and reach their potential. This is who I am and these are a few of the experiences I’ve had. But since you’re reading this you probably already know this. However, if you’re looking for more detail you can read about my journey here and my tennis career here.


Why A Blog?

The simple answer is that I want to share what I’ve learned about fitness, health & nutrition, tennis and wellbeing with you. I do this because I have a lifetime of knowledge and experience on what to do and what not to do and blogging is the most direct way to do this. I have seen so many lives ruined and careers (including my own) cut short because of misinformation. I want to put a stop to this. I want to share the most effective and fastest ways possible to improve your tennis and general health. I want to spread and make this knowledge accessible to everyone. And the best way to do that is to give it away for free. Sound good?


Why read this blog?

There is a lot of wrong information out there. That is the simple truth. I was a victim of this for much of my professional career and I want to make sure you are not sold the same snake oil I got. I will give you professional grade information that anyone can pick up and use immediately. Below are a few things you’ll find and learn about going forward:

  • How to stay healthy in your 30’s, 40’s, 50’s and beyond.
  • How to improve your sleep.
  • How to spot bad coaching advice and what to do about it.
  • Easy to implement diet plans and tips.
  • The biomechanical tennis secrets to more power and accuracy.
  • Book, article and gear recommendations.
  • How to injury proof your body.
  • How to deal with pressure and reduce stress.
  • Workout routines for fat loss and muscle gain.

I’ll be writing about all this and more so even if you’re not a tennis player or athlete you’ll find actionable information here that you can apply to improve your life.
