Positive Energy Fitness and Tennis has been developed from 20+ years of coaching experience both adults and children in tennis and 10 years in fitness. Inclusion Programs have been developed from coaching people with disabilities for over 14 years and now Head Coach Bowie is the Special Olympic Australian and Queensland Head Tennis Coach.
Positive Energy Fitness and Tennis programs are more than just fitness and tennis coaching. We teach and encourage our clients to think outside the square with a clear and open mind, to play and train without conviction, understand the true meaning of sportsmanship, ethics, culture, learn to love life to the fullest and without limitations.
Positive Energy Tennis Program uses the fundamentals of Tennis Australia Hot Shot and Cardio Tennis plus we have included enhancements focusing on health, fitness, teamwork, fun and developing social skills.
Recently after visiting the spiritual centre of the Australian Indigenous Community Uluru, Positive Energy learnt a greater understanding of the meaning of culture including history, respect for elders, the value of the past and how their historical culture is still passed on from generation to generation now.
Positive Energy Fitness and Tennis is continually building a community based on a positive healthy culture that will be passed on from now to generations into the future.
Another learning that we have incorporated into our program is uniqueness. This learning originated from watching the movie Coaching Carter where one of the basketball players Cruz stood up and said:
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It’s not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
Positive Energy – Positive Attitude – Positive Life
All Positive Energy programs allows everyone to be welcomed and treated as individuals, to identify and enable their abilities and to let them shine. This liberates others as they become a positive and confident person with a thorough understanding of respect, sportsmanship, wellness and a never give up attitude no matter their age or ability.
Positive Energy is a partner club with Special Olympic Australia and they have a motto that everyone can live by:
Let me win, but if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt
Positive Energy Fitness and Tennis is more than a tennis and fitness business, we create a positive energy where everyone can grow not only children but adults to identify that limitations are only placed upon us by our own past experiences or from others.
Positive Energy is not a business it is a community built on a positive healthy culture, that welcomes all levels of ability, ages, play and fitness. It is a community that encourages everyone to be brave in the attempt to become the best they can be and then we add the extra 10% that ensures you become the person you wanted to be but didn’t know how to get there.
We create positive experiences!
A child hitting their first tennis ball over the net, watch their face light up.
The first time they hit a cracking forehand down the line for a clean winner and yell out C’mon!
Their first ace.
The first match they win and realise that they can play this game.
Fitting into a pair of jeans that you haven’t been able to for years
Feeling confident for the first time walking down the beach in your swimmers
Plus there are many more positive experiences that we will assist you to create as we travel along your journey to achieve your true goal!
At Positive Energy you will be Positively Energised!
Positive Energy – Positive Attitude – Positive Life
Hi, I am the Owner and Head Coach for both Tennis and Fitness at Positive Energy Fitness and Tennis plus Head Tennis Coach of the Australian and Queensland Special Olympic Tennis Team.
My passion has been to develop not just a tennis and fitness program but programs for kids and adults that include a lifestyle component that includes mind, body and social skills. This resinated from 20+ years of coaching kids and adults, seeing the changes of increasingly busy lives of parents and the introduction of mobile phones and electronic devise that both parents and kids use on a daily basis.
Watching the amount of time spent inside playing on machines compared to outside, work commitments compared to spending time with friends and family, parents spending time playing with their kids outdoors plus the increase in injuries due to bad posture from spending to much time at the computer.
Positive Energy is not a business it is a community built on a positive healthy culture, that welcomes all levels of ability, ages, play and fitness. It is a community that encourages everyone to be the best they can be and then we add the extra 10% that ensures you become the person you wanted to be but didn’t know how to get there.
Hi I am Chloe Johnston, I am a Junior Development Coach at Positive Energy Fitness and Tennis.
I started playing tennis when I was 10 years old and very quickly developed a passion for the game and through training and competitions I have made many life-long friendships.
I have been lucky enough to represent Queensland at a National level on several occasions through Special Olympics. At age 16 I was part of the Australian tennis team competing in the World Games in Athens, where I won a gold medal in mixed doubles.
Tennis is my passion and encouraged by my coach and mentor Glen Bowe I have made this sport my life, as an accredited Hot Shots and Cardio Fitness coach. I have the daily thrill of sharing my passion for tennis with others and seeing young players improve with each training session excites me every day.
I love sharing the excitement that each student feels when they master the basics of forehand and backhand and have their first rally or that first serve makes it over the net!
