Philipp Halfmann is an author, educator, strength & conditioning coach, ATP tennis touring coach, TV contributor, exercise & sports science expert with a Master’s degree in Exercise & Sports Science from Florida International University (FIU).
He was the Head Tennis Professional under the guidance of Australian tennis legend Fred Stolle at the Turnberry Isle Resort & Club in Miami, Florida, before he worked as a strength & conditioning coach at FIU with various NCAA Division I teams and professional athletes, such as NBA champion Antoine Walker, under the supervision of 13 year NBA Head Strength & Conditioning coach Mick Smith.
Searching for ultimate concepts on how to improve power, conditioning and injury prevention for tennis players, Philipp used his insights as a tennis touring and strength & conditioning coach for Swiss national Alexander Ritschard. During that time Alexander won the Swiss National Junior Championships twice (singles & doubles), earned an ATP ranking at age 16, attained a career high of No. 65 ITF junior ranking, reached a career high ATP ranking of 648 and won the 2015 NCAA Men's Tennis Championship with UVa.
Philipp now is the Director of Exercise & Sports Science at the International Association for Athletic Performance & Health (IAAPH), serves as an expert for Europe’s largest fitness company, McFit, and contributing author for the fitness & lifestyle magazine LOOX.
This is his new book, Advanced Concepts of Strength & Conditioning, which includes approximately 700 pages and took him 3 years to finish. He hopes someone will actually read all that stuff.
