  • Pilates for Tennis - 1.5 Hour Workshop

    You’re devoted to tennis, and you’d play every day if you could. Then, just as you get into your flow, you pop your calf, pull your hamstring or have an inflamed tennis elbow. Now, you have to stop everything you’ve been working on. It’s frustrating.


    Tennis is very hard on the body - it’s reactive, quick-moving and you never know where you need to be next. In order to prevent injury, it’s vital to ‘prehab’ and address your alignment, strength, and flexibility to help you stay in the game.


    Pilates has helped countless athletes stay in their game - from professional football players and golfers to tennis pros and dancers. It provides deep, focused work that addresses issues before they become major problems. 


    In addition to injury prevention, Pilates can help take your tennis game to the next level. When you practice Pilates, you can wake up muscles that have been overlooked and find a deeper strength than you knew existed - even if you’ve been playing tennis all your life. 

    Pilates for Tennis is a 1.5-hour workshop for tennis players of all levels. Whether you’re a pro or a beginner, this workshop will teach you how to more deeply connect to your CORE and bring greater awareness to your flexibility and alignment both on and off the court. Understanding this type of connection will lead to more control, power, and agility when playing and a more sustainable practice by helping you avoid injuries that prevent you from playing. 


    Pilates for Tennis addresses the following needs for tennis players:


    • Deep CORE connection to increase power and stability in all tennis movements
    • Hip stability and strength to increase agility and prevent injury from reactive movements on the court
    • Spine flexibility to increase range of motion in your forehand and backhand
    • Upper back strength to increase power in your swing
    • Overall alignment to prevent injury and pain that keeps you from playing
    • A proper warm-up before tennis
    • Maintenance exercises to keep you healthy


    Bring a mat, towel, and water, and be ready to move!

  • About Denise

    Denise Posnak Gaffney is the founder of MyBOD Wellness and has been teaching Pilates for over 20 years. In this time, she has coached athletes and other fitness professionals on how deep CORE connection and awareness creates a potent inner and outer strength. Denise is a certified Romana's Pilates teacher and holds an MFA in Dance from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. Outside of her professional work, Denise has a personal passion for tennis and has trained competitively over the past several years.


    Denise first came to Pilates because of a back injury and chronic back pain. Pilates saved her back and allowed Denise to pursue her dance career with ease. Over the course of her training as a tennis player, Denise has suffered other injuries that have been remedied by Pilates. In turn, she has been able to share this knowledge with her clients who are life-long competitive tennis players, and helped them return to the game after not being able to play due to injury.

    Denise teaches both online and in-person in her studio in Maplewood, NJ. She became one of the first Pilates instructors to bring live training online when she founded MyBOD Wellness in 2012. This hybrid onsite/online structure has helped her clients to consistently maintain their wellness practice by providing the convenience and flexibility of working out online if and when they can’t practice in the studio.
