What is cardio tennis?
Cardio Tennis is a high energy fitness activity that combines the best features of the sport of tennis with cardiovascular exercise, delivering the ultimate, full body, calorie burning aerobic workout. Taught by a Certified Tennis Professional (Gham Patel), a typical Cardio Tennis program includes a short dynamic warm-up, a cardio workout, and a cool down phase. The majority of the Cardio Tennis program is the "workout" phase, which should last 30-50 minutes. Most of this portion will include fast-paced drills where the professional feeds balls to players based on their ability and fitness level. Pros will find ways to keep players moving and challenged, all while having fun! There are 3 segments: warm up, cardio workout and the cool down segments. Each one has drills specifically designed to be fun, challenging and to get you moving. You will hit forehands, backhands, volleys, etc. But remember, Cardio Tennis is not about making you a great player. First and foremost, Cardio Tennis is a great full body workout. You run, you hit balls, you jump, you recover, and you have fun.
Who is it for?
It is a very social and fun class for players of all ability and fitness levels taught by a Gham Patel. If you've never played tennis before it is a great way to be introduced to the sport and if you are an experienced high level tennis player it is a great way to train for tennis.
