It's All About Your Target

Body Helix Tennis Branding (4)-1


This video is an "oldie but goodie." Several years ago, I sat down with longtime friend, Brent Abel of,  about adjusting your practice targets so you become more consistent during matches. 

I put together some visuals to illustrate how the majority of us are aiming for targets that are way too small and cost us too many unforced errors.  If we move our target (and aim like the pros do), we will give ourselves a much lower margin for error.   

Watch the video to learn how it’s not about changing your grip or your technique. It’s simply about where you’re aiming.  Follow these tips to allow yourself the chance to stay in the point.

Fred Robinson, Chairman of Body Helix, is a 70-time World and U.S. medalist tennis champion. Robinson also is a U.S. National Grand Slam Title holder in singles and doubles and is an eight-time Atlanta Senior Invitational Pro Tournament Singles Champion. He has been ranked No.1 in the United States in senior tennis in both singles and doubles multiple times during his career. In addition, he was recognized as Player of the Year in the Men’s Open in North Carolina and Florida, and is an eight-time undefeated champion in the ITF World Team Competition. During his 30-year career, Robinson has also received many distinctions such as the Slew Hester Player of the Year Award, the National Gil Roberts Sportsmanship Award and the Best Senior Tournament of the Year Award. Robinson founded Body Helix in 2008 when he observed that compression gear designed for muscle and joint pain/injuries had minimal effect, was uncomfortable, and was decades behind the advances of fabric science. This motivated Robinson to search for a material that would do three things better than any other material in the world of compression: stretch, rebound, and stay in place. His passion for creating high-quality, eco-friendly compression products is demonstrated through his continuous efforts in product research, development and design.
