For Your Health
Did you know that playing tennis just 3 hours per week can reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease by 56%? And according to the United States Tennis Association, “tennis players add 9.7 years to their life over sedentary individuals.”
Tennis gets your heart pumping; that’s why it’s one of the best cardio workouts. Vigorous cardio can help prevent obesity, hypertension, and heart attacks.
It’s recommended to play at least three times a week, for an hour. But beginners can choose to focus on 20-30 minutes at first while their body builds endurance.
Muscles & Diabetes
Not only do tennis players have fewer coronary events due to lower fat, cholesterol, and triglycerides levels, but tennis also builds muscles and makes you stronger. This sport is also good for diabetes. Here’s a great summary of why tennis is considered “the healthiest sport.”
Mood, Weight Loss & Stress
Former India National Tennis Champion Prateek Bhambri says: “Tennis pros know that daily training also improves focus and concentration off the court.”
According to research, people who play tennis have lower levels of depression and anxiety. The game is a mood booster thanks to its intense action, which cancels negative thinking.
Experts also agree that tennis alleviates stress. Research shows that tennis increases the body’s secretion of endorphin hormones, which are responsible for a positive mood and stress relief.
According to this article at ForeverFit, tennis helps the body and mind by improving flexibility, balance, coordination, and reflexes. A typical 30-minute tennis session burns 200-400 calories, while the constant use of the abdomen switching from forehand to backhand strokes flattens your belly and builds core strength. How many obese tennis players have you seen on TV?
