Our State of the Art Pickleball Fitness Evaluation
We use a combination of 3 elements to analyze your pickleball performance:
1. First we use a form the TPI evaluation, Titleist golf developed an evaluation that takes 16 movements and compares them to the top golfers in the world to find out what needs to be improved in the average golfer, Tim Shevlin and the Matlacha Wellness team have taken this evaluation and modified it and made it the number one pickleball evaluation in the country.
2. Next is the K-Vest. The K-Vest is a 3-D imaging and analysis program. We put sensors on 4 points of your body, your hips, your upper back, your upper arm, and your dominant hand. All of the sensors are linked to our computer system and as you swing, the computer captures every detail of your swing. Our program then breaks down your swing and allows us insight never before possible. The K-Vest was originally designed for golf, but as with the TPI evaluation, the Matlacha Wellness team has modified the programming slightly to focus on the swing for Pickleball.
3. Last is the Matlacha Wellness evaluation. Our evaluation has been created to truly get a feel for your body as a whole, we are able to look at mental health and physical health to get a complete wellness score. These three parts of our evaluation process give us the perfect starting point to maximize your results.
After all three evaluations have been completed we go over your results and come up with a plan of action. As with all of our programs, you are not getting a cookie cutter program. You will receive the best program possible for you as an individual.

What is TPI Certified?
TPI (Titleist Performance Institute) is the world’s leading educational organization dedicated to the study of how the human body functions in relation to the golf swing. Since its inception in 2003, TPI has studied thousands of golfers ranging from the top professional tour players to weekend enthusiasts. An incredible amount of data on players of all shapes, sizes, ages, and fitness levels has been gathered during this time. Using this data, TPI discovered how a properly functioning body allows a player to swing a golf club in the most efficient way possible. Additionally, TPI has analyzed how physical limitations in a player’s body can adversely affect the golf swing and potentially lead to injury. TPI’s mission is to educate golfers and industry professionals on the body/swing connection through its one of a kind ‘TPI Certified’ educational program. This program was developed by founders Dr. Greg Rose and Dave Phillips along with a 52 member advisory staff of industry leading experts. Five unique fields of study are offered for TPI Certification: Golf, Medical, Fitness, Power and Junior Development. Tim Shevlin is certified in all five Titleist Performance Institute fields of study.
The main area that we focus on with pickleball is the Titleist's Power area of study. When studying this area we focused on golf, tennis, baseball, and pickleball all equally, it is the power area of study that most of your programming will come from.
