Health Tip of the Day

Optimum Tennis Benefits

Here are suggestions for getting the most training benefit from your tennis game:

  • Play singles, not doubles. You'll have to go after more balls and cover more territory.

  • Choose slow court surfaces. Points last longer on slower courts, so you do more running and hitting.

  • Be aggressive. Go after every shot, even if it's going out. Run, don't walk, back to your position.

  • Keep moving. Run in place or walk quickly in circles while your opponent is gathering balls or during other pauses.

Could your diet use a nutritional tune-up? A healthful diet has many benefits and it doesn’t have to be bland and boring. Add color to your plate with fresh fruit and vegetables, choose whole grains and low-fat dairy, and keep an eye on your portion size. Aim for balance, variety, flexibility and moderation.
