Jez is in charge of the physical conditioning of the rising stars of the Monte Carlo Tennis Academy. He previously divided his time between helping professional players prepare for the Tour and working as a Conditioning Consultant for the LTA. Jez has worked on the Tour for ten years. In his role as senior LTA Physical Conditioner he has prepared numerous players for Grand Slams, Davis Cup and Tour events, in addition to travelling extensively to tournaments at both junior and senior level.
The experience he has gained from working with players, along with his degree in Sports Science, has enabled him to develop a philosophy, which is both scientifically and functionally based.
His philosophy centres around the notion that tennis is a highly specific sport, where players are asked to perform tasks in a highly functional way, therefore the conditioning of these players must mirror the specific movements that occur in a match. Only then will a player's training effectiveness be maximised.
The concept endorses the methodology that elite tennis athletes must condition "movements, not muscles".http://jezgreen.com/biography
