Don't count yourself out! : staying fit after 35 with Jimmy Connors by Jimmy Connors( Book )
7 editions published between 1992 and 1994 in English and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Over the years, Jimmy Connors has come to symbolize the indomitable spirit of the world-class athlete. Now forty years old, Connors continues to compete with players half his age in tournaments around the world and attributes his extraordinary endurance to his personal fitness program. Here, Jimmy Connors shares the program he and Neil Gordon, M.D., of the Kenneth Cooper Aerobics Center developed to keep him at the top of the tennis world. The Connors program is designed for people who have never exercised as well as for those who already have reached an advanced level of fitness. Unique in its sensible approach to exercise, here is a program that encourages you to create your own regimen to achieve your personal fitness or health goals. While you follow his program, Jimmy will help you stay on course by sharing the motivational techniques he uses to stay pumped up. One of the first things you'll learn is that it's not what you do - but how you do it; keeping track of how hard the exercise feels is key to getting the most benefit from it. At an early age, Jimmy learned to listen to his body, or, as Neil Gordon explains in more scientific terms, to monitor his perceived level of exertion. Now you'll find out why it's not beneficial to exercise too intensely, how to rate your perceived exertion, and what your target level should be. Two sixteen-week programs - one for the novice, one for the more advanced - offer a wide spectrum of activities that include aerobic, weight-resistance training, and stretching exercises. Each activity earns you a certain number of points determined by the number of calories burned. Comprehensive charts are provided of nearly a hundred different activities with their rating equivalencies. You'll learn how to use the Connors Count as your scorekeeper. Once you've embarked on the program of your choice, you'll find yourself echoing Jimmy's own proclamation, "I may be forty, but I don't know when, if ever, I've felt more alive or more in control of my life."

Acing depression a tennis champion's toughest match by Cliff Richey( )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Chronicling the tumultuous life of the original bad boy of tennis, this engaging memoir describes one man's public battle with clinical depression. Cliff Richey was best known for the 1970 season in which he won the Grand Prix, the Davis Cup, and was first in the American tennis ranking. He was also well known for his tantrums and boorish behavior that served to mask an internal, dark struggle. Describing torturous days in which he would place black trash bags on the windows and lay in bed crying for hours, this brutally honest narrative stresses that depression is a mental disorder that can affect anyone. Documenting his 10 year fight for control of his mind, aided by antidepressant medication, the determination and strength that afforded him the nickname of "The Bull" is highlighted. Expressing the joy of feeling stable for the first time in his life, this deeply moving story of nightmare and redemption serves to encourage and inspire anyone whose life is touched by mental illness.--publisher

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The 1975 Championship reached a spectacular climax to the Gentlemen's Singles Final between the world's then number one player, Jimmy Connors and Arthur Ashe. Connors, a self-taught player from Belleville, Illinois, had burst onto the tennis scene only a couple years earlier and was taking the tennis world by storm. ... During the Championships he looked invincible, having waltzed through to the Final without losing a single set. In contrast, Ashe from Richmond, Virginia, was pushing 32 and seemed past his prime. The prospect of Ashe being able to thwart his opponent in the final seemed remote, especially as Connors had beaten him in their three previous encounters. However, there was a final twist in store, as Ashe overcame all the odds to beat the younger champion in four thrilling sets"--Container
The outsider : a memoir by Jimmy Connors( Book )
3 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A no-holds-barred memoir by the original bad boy of tennis. Jimmy Connors ignited the tennis boom in the 1970s with his aggressive style of play, turning his matches with John McEnroe, Bjorn Borg, and Ivan Lendl into prizefights. But it was his prolonged dedication to his craft that won him the public's adoration. He capped off one of the most remarkable runs in tennis history at the age of 39 when he reached the semifinals of the 1991 U.S. Open, competing against players half his age. Here is the uncensored account of Connors' life, from his complicated relationship with his formidable mother and his storybook romance with tennis legend Chris Evert, to his battles with gambling and fidelity that threatened to derail his career and his long-lasting marriage to Playboy playmate Patti McGuire. When he retired twenty years ago, Connors all but disappeared from public view--but here he is, as feisty, outspoken, and defiant as ever.--From publisher description
