I am training my 2 children since they are 3 years old to become professional tennis players
I began with the Romain Tennis Team Method, specialized in young children.
I integrated into their training the bio-mechanical concepts (hand, eye, major axes, elastic force, plyometrics, anchor points, stability and kinematics, etc.), laterality (eye, the hand, the foot, the hip), the mind (talent against effort, street sport therapy, positive pragmatism, non-addiction to games and social networks, getting out of your comfort zone, motivation, breathing,…), the conscious and the subconscious (their relationship, how are they linked in matches, visualization ,…), tennis education to stimulate happiness, values such as fight, patience, life in society, courage, fair play,… how to program a season, the benefits of variability (turbulence, technique, strategy and tactics,…) , game strategy and tactics.
I also set up mental tools such as graphology to develop competition, concentration, adaptation, decision, discipline, resilience, learning to work with the personal strengths of the player and improve their skills and weaknesses. I monitor once a week according to the objectives defined by the mental coach, the children and myself.
I taught the children the different breathing techniques, ventral, complete, alternate, memorization, learning to breathe, to use breathing, relaxation, manage their emotions and practice mindfulness and different types of meditations.
For the past year, I work with a mental coach to assist me personally for the harmony of the group and validate my directions in the project globally. On the physical level, I integrated professional level exercises to improve speed, agility, endurance but also prevention and recovery of the body. I also work with a tool for reprogramming motor neurons from the company Allyane to anchor the modifications of technical gestures durably. I then created my own essential match preparation method for player conditioning.
Until today, I am training my children 18 to 20 hours a week in tennis (Allyane, analytical, global,…) about 15 hours of physical training (improve VO2max, intervals, work on counter-laterality, coordination, agility, sheathing, abs, balance with Fitlights, Medecine ball,…) 3 hours for the vision for the eye with tools like Fitlights, SVTA vision kit,… and 8 to 10 hours per week of mental including the practice of different breathing technics, relaxation methods, visualization exercises, imagery and concentration, mindfulness, attitude and body language, meditation,…. and follow up on local and ITF tournaments.
