Our upstairs fitness facility has a wide range of machines, weights (various shapes and sizes), and apparatuses that will meet the needs of any individual who is committed to a consistent, appropriately guided program for tennis fitness. For strength and size we have free weights, weighted bars and dumbbells, benches (flat and incline), weighted/kettle balls, a Powertech Pullup/Dip apparatus, a Flex Leg Press machine, a Vectra 3850 Universal Gym and a free motion cross beam trainer.

Those who wish to increase endurance will find the Lifecycle and friction stationary upright bikes, the Precor recumbent bike, the two treadmills, and Lifestyle, an advanced motion trainer, a spinner, rower and Precor elliptical trainers more than adequate.

If one gets bored easily with these repetitive machines, the two TVs, hooked with cable programming, make the time go by just a little faster. Balance and agility can be improved using the Reebok Step-ups, jump ropes, step ladders, wobble board and, of course, the fabulous BOSU ball. Therapy for general strength, flexibility and range of motion, is facilitated by our numerous stretching straps and all purpose mats. Tension bands with different resistance are of great aid in building shoulder strength for post surgery therapy as well as maintenance and prevention of injury.
