I’m an intermediate-level tennis hack who has been playing the game for years.
My game has been frustratingly inconsistent, especially on the forehand side. Trying to hit hard gave me power without any control, and trying to have control had me pushing the ball.
I’ve purchased all kinds of online tennis DVD’s and programs over the years, which have helped here and there but the biggest difference so far has been Jan’s TennisFit App and his programs.
I really did not understand what “Power comes from the legs” really meant until I heard Jan explain his Positioning, Legs and Body (PLB tennis method). He keeps instructions very simple and clearly explains how pros use those very same techniques, and I was able to instantly feel a difference in the way I’ve practised and played since.
I started some of Jan’s programs around 2 months ago, and for the past 2-3 weeks I’ve felt like I’ve finally gained some consistency without having to sacrifice my power (if anything, the power’s actually improved with PLB!).
I’ve even been able to win a social-level singles tennis tournament, feeling so much more in control of my shots, including my forehand! With every shot, I willed myself to use my legs for both attacking and defending, and his teaching methods are simple enough to absorb that I could use them in the heat of battle. No complex sets of instructions to remember!
The TennisFit app and the TennisFit web site work really well and are simple to use.
The videos themselves are of excellent quality, but what makes them unique in my opinion is Jan’s passion and understanding for the game, and his experience as a playing pro. His knowledge and perspective really do shine through. Typically, Jan explains a technique for a few minutes, then demonstrates what he means by hitting some balls, then goes through a training drill hitting many balls (including slow motion replays). He just makes you want to find a tennis court and do the same!
As an added bonus, Jan is very responsive if you have any questions about his programs or TennisFit app and web site.
So do yourself a favor and get into Jan’s TennisFit App programs!
