Racquetball Might be Just What You’re Looking For!
Author: Shannon Miller
Are you looking for a fun way to stay in shape this New Year?
Sometimes a walk on the treadmill or a run through the neighborhood just doesn’t feed that release you need after a long day at work. If you’re looking for a workout that’s interactive and high energy, try getting out on the racquetball court!
Check out the benefits that can be reaped from this fast-paced workout:*
- Burn those calories one game at a time! A one hour racquetball game can help a person to burn over 500 calories. For this reason, it can serve (no pun intended!) as a great workout for weight maintenance!
- It’s all about balance! As racquetball requires you to swiftly but accurately make each play, it can aid in improving hand-eye coordination.
- Get loose! Because of the extensive range of motion that racquetball requires, the stretching of your muscles is a given! And with stretching comes flexibility!
- Racquetball brings people together! Because it is not a solo activity, racquetball can be a great way to bring friends together or even to meet new people at your gym!
