Your trained Cardio Tennis instructor will lead you through a 60 minute class consisting of a short warm up and cool down either side of a 40 minute full body workout.
Warm up – Some dynamic stretching, skills and drills to get your body warm and mind sharp before the workout begins
Aerobic section – Here’s your chance to hit loads of shots, including forehands, backhands, serves and volleys, all mixed with a variety of fitness activities
Tennis section – Put your shots into practice with fun tennis games. You’ll never play one-on-one; your team mates will be with you all the way
Cool down – Well done, you made it! Now it’s time to recover and stretch
