Jerry Shang Hopes His New Fitness Regimen Will Help Him Reach New Heights

During the offseason, Shang Juncheng (Jerry) revamped his fitness routine by hiring a new trainer. He shifted emphasis from rigorous fitness training to prioritize movement, resulting in a notable 4 Kg weight loss.

His new training regimen makes sense because he is only 5 ft 11. So he needs to rely on his movement on the court to win points. He can’t be a big server at his height.

2023 is going to be a crucial season for Shang. He reached his career-high ranking of 149 in 2023. With improvements in his game and fitness, he should break into the top 100 in 2024 if things go according to plan.

Jerry Shang trains at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida. He is the son of former footballer Shang Yi and former table tennis player Wu Na. As a junior, Shang reached the finals at the US Open boy’s tournament.
