January 10, 2003, Newsletter Issue #56: Tennis Helps the Heart, from the Living Right Guide

Tip of the Week

These benefits are enjoyed by those who play tennis regularly and rigorously. YOU MUST CONSULT WITH YOUR DOCTOR before attempting any rigorous exercise program.

BENEFIT 1: You`ll Feel Better. Playing tennis will give you more energy, counter anxiety and depression, improve your self-image, relax and feel more tense, improve your ability to fall asleep quickly and sleep well, provide an easy way to share a great activity with friends and family and an opportunity to meet new friends by joining a league or community tennis association.

BENEFIT 2: You`ll Look Better. Playing tennis will tone your muscles, burn off calories (tennis is one of the best, burning off 400 calories per hour with a rigorous drill program), and helps control your appetite.

BENEFIT 3: You`ll Work Better. Playing tennis will help you to be more productive at work, increase your capacity for physical work, build stamina for other physical activities, increase muscle strength, and help your heart and lungs work more efficiently.

CONSIDER THE BENEFITS OF A WELL-CONDITIONED HEART.

In one minute, with 45 to 50 beats, the heart of a well-conditioned person pumps the same amount of blood as an inactive person`s heart pumps in 70 to 75 beats per minute. Feeling, looking, and working better--all these benefits from regular physical activity can help you enjoy your tennis, and ultimately, your life, more fully.

How do you stay on top of your tennis program?

FIND A PRACTICE PARTNER, SCHEDULE A REGULAR TIME, CONSULT WITH YOUR PHYSICIAN ON YOUR TARGET WEIGHT AND THE BEST EXERCISE REGIMEN, THEN PLAY!

Good luck in 2003!
