My clogged arteries

I agree exercise is boring. I have started to play tennis. This is FUN. You run around smacking the hell out of a little ball. Great for stress relief a lot of exercise and FUN!

I have to agree. thumbup1.gif

I hate exercise but I love tennis. I didn't start playing until about 10 years ago. I was just over 40 at the time but my SO at the time was an athletic Brit who loved the game. She took me to school. I fell in love with the game so much we joinded a local tennis club where we could play even in the winter. Even though I got very good very quickly (she said I was a "natural") I was such a "newb" (and she had been playing since she was a kid) it goes without saying she kicked my "Yankee @ss" every single match.

I never had so much fun getting my @ss kicked by a girl. wub.gif

I'm the same - I'll take an hour on the squash or racquetball court over 20 mins on a treadmill anytime.

What do you like better squash or racquetball? Racquetball is fun, but whenever I play it I run into stuff (wall, the other guy)

It depends on what I'm in the mood for. IMHO squash takes more skill and strength, but racquetball is good for a bit of fun for less-cordinated folk (that's why I like both :) ) I grew up playing squash, but I haven't found a lot of squash courts around here (or players for that matter...)

Interesting... Skill and strength :nono: sounds like racquetball for me. There are squash courts at MSU. Never saw anyone in there and didn't know much about it.

Yeah - the courts are pretty hard to come by over here, whereas there aren't any racquetball courts back home that I know of. I remeber once tweeting that I was going to play racquetball and getting crap from my Australian friends and family, as well as a slew of poms, that my integration into American society was now complete :D

Squash has more rules, is played with a racquet with a longer shaft and smaller head, and the ball is much smaller and slower (so you do more quick direction changes and running in my experience).
