What do I need to bring?

Bring your own racket if you have one, if not don’t worry as you will be able to borrow one. Wear comfortable gym kit and trainers. You will be working up a sweat, so don’t forget to bring a bottle of water.

Do I need to be any good at tennis?

No!

Cardio tennis is for anyone who wants to get fit and have a go at tennis. The class moves along quickly, so no one will be judging your skills and it doesn’t matter whether the ball goes in or out.

Do I need to be fit?

No!

Cardio tennis is for anyone who wants to have fun getting fit outside of a gym environment.

What is a typical class like?

Warm up:

Some dynamic stretching around tennis focused strokes and movements, skills and drills to get your body warm and mind sharp before the workout begins. Heart rate of each person is taken at this time to give a range of BPM (Beats Per Minute) to work within during the session to ensure that each person works to their max heart rate.

Aerobic Section:

Here is your chance to hit loads of shots including forehands, backhands, serves and volleys, all mixed with a variety of music based fitness activities which challenges each individual at their personal fitness level. This is a period of high intensity activities followed by short recovery periods (interval training with a racket). During this time the group will measure their heart rate to ensure that they are not over working or if they can up their level of activity for the remainder of the session. The heart rate can be measured manually or with a heart rate monitor.

Cool Down:

Time to cool down. The tempo of activity reduces to bring the heart rate down and some static stretches.
