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.
“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.
