"Chris Lewit is a passionate coach and has influenced hundreds of aspiring elite juniors. But beyond that he has a passion and capacity for analysis that is at the highest levels in the game.
I have enjoyed working with Chris and have learned from the articles we have done together on Tennisplayer.net."
My son (Kyle Mautner Top 10 Nationally) started working with Chris Lewit as he was turning 9 years old. It has been a good 5 plus years with Chris. Chris was instrumental in teaching him proper tennis technique and to become a player. Chris Lewit’s workout is very physical and prepares the player properly for the rigors required to properly play a point. I would recommend Chris Lewit to any parent who feels their child is interested in learning proper tennis technique and has the ambition to be an elite tournament level player. They will be well balanced and prepared.
Parent (Summer Camp)
Chris' attention to detail and patience creates a unique learning environment that allowed our daughter to improve and develop at an extraordinary pace. As a result of Chris' coaching, in less than two weeks she transformed her serve and strengthened all aspects of her game. The intimate, family oriented environment in Vermont that focused on training on and off the court also created a fun but demanding experience that helped build confidence in our daughter and has allowed her to compete at a national level. She can't wait to go back this summer to continue to work on her game!
From my perspective as a parent, Chris’ coaching was a transformational experience for Tim. The training was about more than tennis. Chris taught lessons that were and remain valuable off the court as well as on it.
With two years of hard work, Tim improved enough to be recruited by a Division III college. In the context of the world of professional competitive tennis, this is not a story of any interest. But the fact is that Tim improved a great deal – on and off the court. It was an amazing, challenging, valuable journey.
Chris Lewit coached my son Ty (Top 30 National Recruiting Class) for two years when he was 9 and 10 years old and as a consultant since. Chris’s gift for teaching the technical side of the game, especially the serve, is impressive to say the least. His ability to get a complex point across in a simple way proved effective over and over again. Chris has a teaching style that is powerful, direct and produces results. He is able to identify problems with your game and find unique, individualized solutions that work. Chris stays current with the latest style of play around the world and is an accomplished player himself. What comes through with Chris, is his true love for the game and passion for coaching.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Chris as a coach to any aspiring player looking to take their game to the next level! He has remained a friend to my son and our family for years and I have no doubt, many more years to come.
To all parents looking to train their kids in Tennis, The Chris Lewit Academy is the best I have seen so far in Metro New York as well the TriState area. I have a daughter (Hannah Shteyn) who has been training with Chris for the last two years and he has develop her to become a highly ranked junior in the Eastern Section as well as National both the 14 and 16 age groups. Chris is a highly trained , accredited and consummate professional coach. His teaching knowledge is superb using a hybrid of European(Spanish) and North American philosophies.
Chris Lewit has the extremely rare attributes of understanding tennis technique at a very deep level and the ability to explain it very clearly. That, coupled with his on-site study of the latest coaching techniques and thoughts from France, Spain and Israel, has led to a high-level training experience that is unparalleled. Watching the training sessions, one can immediately see that Chris and his students take tennis seriously. When I first approached Chris about training, he was skeptical. He believed most adults won't put in the hard work on and off the court that is necessary to see the gains he expects. But I convinced him to give me a chance and my game has been remade. I quickly became nationally ranked in the M35 category of the USTA. However, more important, I have begun to enjoy tennis at a completely different level. By understanding technique, I can see holes in my opponents' technique and thus anticipate their weaknesses. By improving my technique, I can hit shots that I couldn't before and the court has become much wider and the game much more geometrical. Simply put, I am playing at a level I only dreamed of.
