Our Fitness Principles

Our fitness training program is structured in terms of substance and proficiency. We evaluate each player individually in order to evaluate their physical development weaknesses to carefully customize their training programs based on their level of play and tournament schedules.

We accurately evaluate the flexibility movement and the instantaneous formulation response levels with using a heart rate monitor to track the physical adaptability and adjust the program according to the players fitness progress.
