To be fair, I never work-out in the gym which is why I'm probably a 5.0 and not any higher. All I do is running for my conditioning.

Any other thoughts, please feel free to write.
Hey Miami!

Hope it works out for you. As for the cost of tailweighting the racquet, you can get lead tape for $3 or $4. Not a lot of money. Helped me swing the racquet much easier.

Check out the article in TW blogs

I would follow our Physio's suggestion of working out though. Cheap insurance against injury.

Anyhow take care and keep us posted please
