Having started her fitness journey almost 10 years ago, Datin Sabrena thrives on working out and continues to challenge herself.
Kick off your One&Only Desaru Coast tennis wellness retreat with a bespoke wellness experience at Chenot Spa, designed to promote a strong and healthy mind and body. Through its Postural and Movement Assessment, your assigned therapist will be able to test the curvatures of your spine, the mobility of your joints, the balance and strength of your body, as well as the weak links in the muscle chains.
Following a preliminary set of diagnostics, the spa professionals will deliver an integrated and highly personalised treatment tailored to your individual needs to leave you fully charged and brimming with vitality.
“It was so important for me to undergo the Postural and Movement Assessment which evaluated my mobility and strength, to enable me to focus on fixing my weakness and strengthening certain parts so that I can function better at sports,” Sabrena gushed happily after experiencing the invigorating Chenot Detox Body Massage, which aids in facilitating the elimination of toxins by the use of manual techniques with suction cups.
Then, it’s time to swing into action – literally.
One&Only Desaru Coast spared no expense at ensuring that they’re fully equipped to host a slew of activities that you'll love. With three state-of-the-art tennis and padel courts located amidst unspoiled nature at Club One, making for an idyllic playground, and through the much-raved-about tailored sessions with One&Only's tennis coach, you'll be able to perfect your stroke, posture, and other aspects of play.
A GPTCA (Global Professional Tennis Coach Association) ATP Certified International Coach and a resident tennis pro at One&Only Desaru Coast, the coach boasts an impressive resume, having competed professionally in Macedonia and Europe. “He was really attentive in helping me take my game to new heights regardless of my level. The tennis lesson that I had with him was amazing! Besides, it’s not every day that you get to train with a pro,” Sabrena shared.
Safe to say, aspiring tennis pros are in good hands, match point and beyond.
