Luigi Scicchitano - Pursuit of Excellence while being trained from Milan, Italy
LUIGI SCICCHITANO - PURSUIT OF EXCELLENCE
as written by his instructor: Michaela Tavernese
Luigi Scicchitano has made the playoffs for his first Tennis Los Angeles tennis season. While he's been working with Michaela Tavernese who is based out of Milan Italy.
Most people workout to improve their body composition but exercises can do more than that.
The goal is to increase resistance, strength, flexibility, power and endurance on court movement.
As everyone needs to tailor their own routine on their individual needs and bodies, there is no single “perfect tennis workout”.
With Luigi we examined his body, we studied his muscles, we worked around his qualities to develop his performance during the match.
To achieve these results we got into the big world of functional training. The global gymnastic that involves activities targeting the core muscles (abs and lower back) and any type of exercise that has a direct relationship with the activities you perform in your tennis court life.
So the training was extremely unique, variable and undoubtedly hard!
We used different techniques :
To cope with this innovative training and the new caloric expenditure. We focused the attention on Luigi 's nutritional habits.
To satisfy his new caloric needs we opted for a personal and detailed DIET gradually introducing energetic and healthy food (Luigi's secret).
After our virtual training sessions on Skype, mail and Facebook, Luigi at the age of 41 reached on the tennis court the maximum control of his body. The big success is confirmed with:
- His league results
_ His 15-4 record during the Winter Season.
_ His quick rise to the top division being offer by Tennis Los Angeles
- Being at the top of the list of the men's Elite Division
A final note on Luigi's athletics rebirth " trip" his natural work to absorb the Athletics Principals and Sport Philosophy. Luigi's mental outlook allowed him to nourish his genius and refine his great talent.
Luigi is my best "virtual athlete" because I'm training him from MILANO ITALY
We started TEN MONTHS AGO and we have OBTAINED GREAT RESULTS even if WE LIVE IN DIFFERENT CONTINENTS.
I 'm very proud to announce that in late December
