With multiple weekly scheduling examples, this program can fit the needs of any tennis setting.
Exercises and routines that target the specifics of tennis. Including integrated tennis-fitness sessions.
Only the training items a player needs. Nothing less and nothing more.
Detailed workout sheets allow players & coaches to monitor and track progress.

No fluff. Just a practical, evidence-backed approach.
The supporting performance guide adds another tool to the elite coach’s toolbox. From planning to monitoring, this science-backed resource puts the research into practice. Easy to follow and easy to implement, it’s essential for coaches working in elite tennis settings.

HP-Specialization (HPS) is the 2nd resource offered by Mattspoint - an extension to HP-Preparation (HPP). The difference - HPS is a tennis-specific physical prep program; it’ll better prepare serious tennis players for high-level tournament play. HPP, on the other hand, is a general physical prep program; it enhances general physical abilities (those that all athletes need). Both are necessary, at different times of the year.
All content is delivered online and housed at www.mattspoint.com/high-performance-specialization-main. The actual training program is a downloadable file which can be used online or printed. This ease of use allows you to access the content anytime from your phone, tablet or computer.
The program is primarily intended to be implemented by developing juniors and elite players worldwide. It’s designed to be used by players seeking to gain a competitive advantage but at the same time, coaches can it to build their own programs based on their unique environments. The guide is there to simplify, clarify and outline what’s needed in order for the program to work. It’s also packed with practical, easy to follow, sport science info & research.
At $125, this is tremendous value. In most high-performance settings, $125 might get you 2 hours on court or in the gym for a private session (if you're lucky). And many athletes spend anywhere from $500 to $1000 per month for a comprehensive program (let alone the accompanying guide). HPS will allow you to adapt the timeline so it fits your schedule and needs.

Matt’s specific program has opened my eyes to the importance of individualized physical training and the influence it has on my game. I’ve had the privilege of going through it and I can honestly say it is the best program I have ever trained with. I’m feeling stronger, more explosive and overall, my on-court movement is much better.

Matt is a former high level player, experienced coach and has been publishing several years of evidence based research on his blog before releasing this programme to the tennis world. So everything Matt asks you to do in this training programme is tried and tested over years of coaching experience, and backed by science.
The goal of this programme is to cut through all the training fads and focus on the scientific principles that stand the test of time. I can personally say, having seen the programme myself, that you won't be disappointed and Matt has delivered a quality programme that will help you reach your physical goals in tennis.

Sarah Stone - CEO Women’s Tennis Coaching Association (WTCA), WTA Touring Coach
After going through the general physical prep program (HPP) I feel both powerful and ‘stable’. This continued after I implemented this specific prep program (HPS) for 6 weeks. Overall, the results are that I am more explosive, elastic and quicker than ever before.
I adapted the program to fit a 4 day/week training schedule. It was challenging; however, I am super-satisfied with the results!

When players, coaches and trainers think they are training specifically for tennis, more often than not, they are actually just simulating the sport.
Specific training or training specificity should not simply reproduce tennis movements, but instead look at the similar muscles actions, ranges of motions, work to rest ratios and distances covered. Additionally, off-court training needs to overload the body to be able to cope with the demands of the sport.
Matt builds on the awesome job he did with HPP to produce a resource that teaches you both the theory of why and the practical of how to train tennis athletes, following scientific principles.
For anyone wanting to take there performance to the next level, this programme is a must.
