BENEFITS OF PLAYING CARDIO TENNIS
  • Participants consistently elevate their heart rates into their aerobic training zone.
  • It is much more fun than working out on a machine or other fitness activities.
  • You get short cycles of high intensity workouts and periods of rest, almost like interval training.
  • It is a fun, group activity where players of all abilities enjoy tennis together.
  • While you are playing tennis, the focus is primarily on getting a great workout.
  • You naturally improve your game because you hit so many balls and repeat various shots.

HEART HEALTH

All the evidence indicates that to improve overall health and reduced the risk of heart disease, we need at least 30 (up to 60) minutes of moderate intensity aerobic exercise ...most if not all days of the week. Cardio Tennis can go a long way toward helping you realize this health benefit ...while giving you a complete workout.

Get into your aerobic heart rate zone ... and stay there. To improve fitness and reduce future health risks it is desirable to have the person elevate the heart rate into their individualized aerobic target training zone ...and stay there. Cardio Tennis will elevate a person's heart rate into their aerobic zone.

RECOMMENDED HEART RATE RANGE

The basic calculation is done this way:

      220 - your age   =   your maximum acceptable heart rate

The player's ideal cardio tennis workout zone is 65 to 85 percent of this number.

Please note: any player who is recovering from major surgery or is not in shape at all may want to set their aerobic range at levels at least 10% lower than the norm.
