Are you between 13 and 83 and looking for some fun? No, I am not talking about a dating site. This is about exercise! I never believed exercise could be fun, but Cardio Tennis has proven me wrong.
Every Tuesday night, a group of 4 to 8 people get together to play games with illustrious names like 'Challengers and Champions' or 'Maniac'. We literally run around the court like maniacs and even manage to hit some tennis balls in the process. You don't have to be a tennis-pro but it helps if you have played before. The upbeat music is great and creates a real party atmosphere.
Everyone is encouraged to use a heart rate monitor. This is not only useful to check your stats at the end of each session but may prompt the coach to yell at you during the class if your heart rate is not as high as he thinks it should be.
This high-intensity cardio workout is the highlight of my week.
Intennis Burpengary runs classes on Monday and Tuesday nights at 7.30pm. First class is free. During school holidays, great value 2-week boot camps ($49) are available with classes every night at 7.00pm. Casual classes are $15, packages of 6 classes are $75 (you only pay when you go).
