More About Coach Brian

I am a 20+ year resident of Denver with certifications from Primal Health Coach, TRX, and National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) Personal Training (with additional Nutrition and Group Personal Training Specializations).

I am a USPTA certified tennis professional, and I've played competitive tennis for over 30 years – often against local tennis pros and high school coaches - as a 4.5 tennis player and captain for a Lifetime Tennis team. Over the years, I've taught judo, taekwondo, and soccer. My rapidly growing tennis business includes teens trying to "get to the next level" on their high school teams as well as adult beginners (through USTA 4.0 ratings) looking to learn this lifetime sport.

My sports experience is general:
• Played Texas high school football for 4 years (playing on both offensive and defensive lines where I was often outweighed by 40-80 lbs but was quicker and could almost bench press as much)
• Was a student and teacher of both judo (9 years...and had state and regional level USA Judo coaching certifications) and taekwondo (12 years)
• Have played tennis for over 30 years...many of those years at a 4.5 level against local club teaching pros and varsity tennis coaches.

All of these sports require that I focus on strength and conditioning both to improve performance as well as rehabilitate from injuries. I've successfully come back from 1 elbow surgery and 3 shoulder surgeries and still play at a USTA 4.5 level.

• I will impart a love for this lifetime sport with enthusiasm and skillful teaching that “meets you where you are”, considers your goals, and maps a reasonable strategy for improving your game.
• I will not only work on stroke fundamentals, but I will also improve your mental strength on the tennis court as well as situational awareness (stroke patterns, game and set scores, evaluating opponents for strengths and weaknesses).
• Almost every session will include mini-tennis (to focus on "touch" and how to "feel the ball"), volley, and then groundstroke and finally serve/return practice. I tailor each of these portions for your goals and abilities, and then we drilldown into your individual goals (how to hit a topspin lob or topspin serve, how to open up the court and dictate play, how to hit a slice return, "chip and charge", etc).

My daughter has been taking tennis lessons from Brian for over 6 months. She loves the classes. It is very easy to schedule lessons using the website. Brian always reaches the court ahead of the scheduled class time and stays after the class explaining what they practiced today and how she did it. He gives some practice tips for back home as well. Brian is also a health coach so I always have great conversations on food, exercise with him. I strongly recommend Brian. He cares for his student's progress, overall health, and learning.
Brian is a fantastic coach! It has been amazing how he has improved my tennis in such a short span of time. His method of teaching is highly effective and unique. You can see how passionate and knowledgeable Brian is in tennis, and that has made lessons very enjoyable. He has the focus, knowledge and skills to motivate you to the next level. Coach Brian taught me different stroke fundamentals that made it easy to remember (hammer vs razor, windshield wiper, “carve the ball”, etc). He covers a lot of the fundamentals in each lesson (mini-tennis, volleys, ground strokes, serve). Very pleased with off court organization and communication. Overall, very pleasant experience. Highly recommended.
My kids and I have been receiving tennis lessons from Brian over this summer and it has been a blast. Brian is very good at quickly assessing your skill level and customizing drills to suit your needs. My 16-year old (boy) and 14-year old (girl) are both new to tennis and with Brian's help they will now have a lifetime passion for a sport they never played before. We were so impressed with his teaching ability and passion for the game and have already recommended Brian to several of our friends and family. Coaches like Brian are so hard to come by and we will recommend him to anyone at all skill levels.
