Anyone for Tennis?
Raz steps onto the hardtop for a little tennis. Whether you’ve grown up playing tennis or not, sports of this cut – think racquetball and squash – are a great way to exercise while engaging in a little healthy competition. “Tennis is an incredible workout because it forces you to move in all 3 planes of movement (front, back, and side to side),” remarks Coach Mike. “Its emphasis on quick reactions and hand eye coordination make it not just a calorie-burner, but a brain booster as well. Coach Mike says that playing tennis regularly has significant impact on your mood and mental function. Compared to other athletes, tennis players reported lower levels of depression, anger, and anxiety while also reporting higher levels of optimism and self-esteem. One of the great parts about tennis is that you can play it at any age so it is never too late to start playing and reaping the amazing and unique benefits of this popular sport.”
