I could see why the video would be attractive to a 10 year old. I think it is over the top. I hope other tennis parents out there think long and hard about whether this level of training and motivation is in the long term interests of a 10 year old. That being said, I am sure you have thought a lot about this and are doing what you believe is right. Good luck in your journey.
