Pat Etcheberry

A legend in the field of sports fitness and movement for more than thirty years, Pat's knowledge and expertise is wide-ranging; it has been every day since his beginnings at the University of Kentucky where he was the trainer for all of the university's men's and women's intercollegiate teams. 

Etch to all his players, the name Etcheberry is synonymous with success in the sport of tennis, as Pat has trained nearly two-dozen Champions who have raised the Victor's trophy at more than ninety Grand Slam tournaments and countless Masters contests. A former Olympian himself, Pat has been instrumental in more than fifteen Olympic Medalists results.

Pat has guided world-class tennis players like Pete Sampras, Andre Agassi, Jim Courier, Monica Seles, Jennifer Capriati, Martina Hingis, Jelena Janković, Daniela Hantuchová and Justine Henin, as well as other professional players in a variety of sports, such as football, soccer, baseball, basketball, and golf. On the side, he designs and conducts client-specific programs for top notch executives and Fortune 500 companies.During the past several years, Pat has served as Director of the Etcheberry Sports Performance Division at the Mission Inn Resort, near Orlando, Florida, where he has developed programs for both world class professionals and aspiring players, some as young as eight years old, in sports as diverse as tennis, golf, football, swimming and speed skating.

Pat's programs focus on improving physical prowess using unique training techniques that he has designed specifically throughout the years of practical experience to increase the stamina and overall performance.


I first ascertain what motivates each individual athlete. Through strengthening a person physically, I believe they can also be strengthened mentally. I will work on an athlete's strengths, but focus even more on their weaknesses, as that's where there is the most room for improvement. Workouts are sports-specific and intense. The training is such that anything they could face on game day couldn't be any more challenging than what they have been through in training. Thus the body and mind adapt and respond appropriately at the crucial moments.
