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!
