6 Reasons To Try Tennis
Game, set, match: Tennis is a winning workout for the entire body.
Mind: Tennis requires mental strategy, which may foster new brain connections
Arms: Tennis tones your biceps, triceps, shoulders and forearms
Legs: Sprinting, lunging, pivoting and planting provide an explosive workout for calves, quads and hamstrings.
Heart: Tennis is the real-life counterpart to the “interval training” setting on the treadmill. Tennis players run in bursts before resting between points.
