The thought behind the PirpaVita started to develop during Pirpa’s professional 400m runner career. Unsatisfied with the given training protocol and determined to find solutions to her recurring health and injury problems. She figured out how to work the basic biomechanical movement patterns of running, together with alternative holistic treatments in order to speed up the recovery, to return into competition after injuries more easily and with improved results. In 2017 Pirpa got to coach Finnish current number one tennis player Emil Ruusuvuori. With a number of severe injuries in his history, despite the young age, Emil had the determination to seek a top professional to solve the health issues that were the biggest threat to his career. Pirpa took him under her wing in the new environment of professional tennis, again applying and tailoring specific biomechanical analysis and exercises for the sport.
With the unique combination of explosiveness, endurance, cognition and technical skills, tennis brought additional aspects to Pirpa’s style of implementing the physiological and biomechanical training protocols to everyday training. One of them was adding manual treatment to the exercises. Helping the athletes perform their best everyday, the range of motion and muscle elasticity is crucial. Especially in a highly technical sport the bodily sensations such as muscle stiffness, affect the performance negatively.
