Every New Year, millions of people make their resolutions to change their lifestyles. This can include anything from healthier eating and more exercise to learning a new sport or finding ways to de-stress. If these are your goals this year, you have a way of accomplishing all of them at once if you join a racquet and tennis and club.
Whether you’re looking to shed some winter weight or you’re in need of a new health club membership, here are three reasons you may want to consider joining a tennis club this new year:
1. Keep active during the cold months. Cold weather tends to drive people indoors, and as a result, they may have to abandon their warm weather fitness routines. If you are someone who prefers to workout in the outdoors, for instance, then you may need an alternative if you’re not fond of going out in the snow and ice. Whether or not you’ve experiences any seasonal weight gain, it’s still important to get plenty of exercise during all times of the year. Playing tennis and squash on a regular basis gives you the opportunity to get a good cardio workout. Racquet and tennis clubs often have plenty of indoor clay tennis courts to meet the needs of their members any time of the year.
2. Learn a new sport (or refine your skills) in a fun and supportive environment. It doesn’t matter whether or not you are new to tennis — you can still learn something from a membership at a racquet club. Many of these facilities host everything from group tennis lessons to one-on-one tennis clinics designed to teach the sport to new students and to help amateurs and pros alike improve their game. A club that offers both tennis and squash give you the perfect opportunity to learn one or both sports, especially if you are new to one of them.
3. Find some new ways to relax. In addition to group tennis lessons and great cardio workouts, some squash and tennis clubs also have luxury spas on the premises. These spas offer treatments such as massages, steam baths, saunas, and other relaxation techniques, all of which are the perfect complement to cap off a busy week or to prevent inflammation after your group tennis lessons. In fact, even ten minutes of massage after playing tennis is a good way to help prevent injury. If you’re in the mood to treat yourself, too, many of these clubs also have juice bars and cafes with plenty of healthy drinks and snacks to keep you energized without a big crash from caffeine or sugar later on.
