Concept 10 10 takes on tennis for a win

A powerful swing in just minutes, that’s what Pernille Albrechtsen gets out of her Concept 10 10 training.

Albrechtsen’s tennis team won for the first time in years at a tournament held at the Dunes Tennis Club, located in the North Naples community where she lives.

Albrechtsen, now a local 2012 season tennis champ, has only been playing tennis at the Dunes for about two years. She did not play the sport at all prior to joining up with her tennis partner Gail Tipito with the Collier Tennis Association.

Pernille and her husband Jorgen Albrechtsen were opening the Concept 10 10 location at the same time she was getting started in the game. The club was set up and operational for the second season of tennis.

Pernille Albrechtsen started working out at Concept 10 10  for 20 minutes about every five to seven days– soon it was even less than 20 minutes per session as her weight was maximized on several of the six machines. Learn about those workout specifics here.

“I’m faster on the court. I can move around and I don’t get tired. Now, I’m stronger than the other girls are. I don’t get injuries the way the other girls do, but I did the first year,” she said.

Albrechtsen suffered a hamstring injury that she attributes in-part to jumping into the game without  building up the proper strength.

“You’re not getting stronger playing tennis at the level we’re playing. You’re standing still. Then, when you set off to run after the ball, you’re more likely to get injured,” she said.

Albrechtsen isn’t taking that risk anymore. She admits with a laugh that there are days she wishes the leg press were broken. Despite the fact that it takes only about three minutes or less on each machine, it is tough.

The Dunes tennis team, including 2012 Collier County champion partners Pernille Albrechtsen and Gail Tipito, bring their community’s team up a notch after a win that Pernille attributes in-part to strength training 20 minutes each week for one year at Concept 10 10.

“I know I have to do Concept 10 10 High Intensity Training because it gives me the strength, the power. The better you are at those hard, deep strokes, the opponents can’t take it.”

Another great advantage to her game was that lingering frequent bouts of back pain were alleviated by strength training on the lower back machine at Concept 10 10.

Pernille has always been active. She’s a certified aerobics instructor, fitness trainer and trained more than 200 other aerobics instructors. She also played badminton and handball, her favorite for years. She has the greatest strength of her life because of Concept 10 10.

News About Concept 10 10 in Naples Illustrated

Fitness Explosion

I started to tell you about Concept 1010 in my last post, and since I just returned from my weekly session, I feel inspired to elaborate. I have been a workout fiend for years—both cardio and weight training have always been a part of my fitness routine.  As I got older, I kept up with it all, not just for fitness, but because I was terrified to quit as I felt certain that gravity would ankle-tackle me and dash every part of me to the ground that was not rock solid.

Concept 1010 has facilities all over the world, and the owner, who resides in Naples, was a guest on Bob’s (bobharden.com) radio show several times.  As a result, Bob became a sort of “guinea pig” to try Concept 1010.  He really liked it and encouraged me to try it.  Silly, I thought, having been schooled with the prevailing notion that at least one hour of cardio activity and weight training was needed to keep fit and toned.  Concept 1010 changed my mind.  This unique method of high-intensity training takes only 20 minutes per week. The sessions are one-on-one with a personal trainer in a private setting with no one else is in the room.  Having a routine that actually works and does not take hours is so liberating and allows more time for other pursuits, like my bread tour of Naples.
