“Hi guys! I LOVED the Sunday stretch on more balancing of hips! Especially loved the little “why” tips you threw in – like why it is important to keep your knuckles tight to keep the wrist firm. Had a solid (tennis) hit after and no pain!!!!!”
"Love, love, love this class. Thank you both!"
“OMG that was SO helpful! I couldn’t believe how different my body felt at the end when we were standing straight compared to at the start. Thanks for sharing.”
Great start to a Sunday.
“Today, I am 60 years young, my doubles partner and I won the 2019 National Championships in Arizona for the 50+. We beat seven teams from around the country, and not once did I feel pain, and yes, I do the pre-tennis routine and post-tennis routine before and after every match. I highly recommend this book of exercises, it will change your life. Thank you David”
