Ahh tennis, the sport of kings. This summer don’t just watch those gorgeous tennis players sweat it out on the court, pick up a racket and challenge a friend or neighbour to a game. Tennis is a serious calorie-burner, and calls for repeated bouts of high intensity activity (read more about HIIT here). Tennis also tones the arms, shoulders and back, and is a heap of fun whether you’re an ace or a novice.
Calories burnt: Tennis burns about 270 calories and improves speed, co-ordination, and balance. Incredibly, on average people cover between 3 and 5 miles during the course of a match.
