Renowned as one of the best prepared and hardest working athletes in world tennis, Lleyton Hewitt has launched a new app to share his training secrets.

Lleyton Hewitt Tennis Fitness Pro is available from today, Sunday 3 January, from the app store (full details below)

Developed with Hewitt’s long-time fitness trainer Nathan Martin, the app features a combination of more than 110 tennis-specific exercises to help anyone interested in improving their fitness, from beginners to champions.

There are three programs each on strength – gym, body weight and resistance band – agility, core and endurance. The serious player can even experience grand slam preparation workouts with specific programs for clay, hard and grass court preparation techniques.

“I’ve always worked hard behind the scenes and tried to be as well prepared as I can possibly be,” Hewitt said today.

“When you know you’ve done the best possible preparation, and are as fit as you can possibly be, you have a big advantage during a long match. Mentally, there’s a feeling you can go the distance and that’s something that’s always helped me when I get into the fifth set.

“I’ve really enjoyed working with Nathan over the years and we came up with the idea of sharing some of the work we do during a training block last year. It’s an opportunity to give back to the tennis community and share the knowledge I’ve built up over the past 20 years on tour. These days everyone uses their mobile phones for everything and we thought creating an app was the best way to do this.”

“Lleyton is such an inspirational athlete to work with – he’s receptive to new ideas, always gives 100% and works harder than anyone I’ve ever seen,” Nathan Martin said.

“The app is designed not just for tennis players, but also coaches, fans and all sports enthusiasts.

“Consistency and working at the right intensity has always been the key to Lleyton’s training philosophy. As he’d say, work hard and keep it simple. With this app, you can do the same.”

Lleyton Hewitt Tennis Pro app is available from today, Sunday 3 January. A free trial version can be downloaded with the full app available for AUD $5.99.
