John Travolta is a good testimony of what they say that you go with what works for you when it comes to exercise. The star of Saturday Night fever is looking slim, dashing and debonair as he walked beside his beautiful model girlfriend, Miranda Kerr at the Qatas Gala Dinner held in Sydney last April 18.

According to Mr. Travolta, he resorted to tennis to battle the bulges. He revealed that he plays six games, six times a week and does weight lifting to balance it out.

Tennis is one way to effectively lose the weight. If you’re the type who gets bored with just working out, maybe playing sports would excite you and will help you burn the excess poundage without you thinking much about it.

Tennis As Exercise

To make tennis an effective fat-busting exercise, the key is to be competitive. The more competitive the game is, the more action it would demand from you. The more you move, the more you work out your body and burn those unwanted calories.

One hour of competitive tennis playing can burn up to 584 calories for a regular 160 pound person. If you’re heavier, you’ll burn more. It all really depends on how long and how hard you’ve been playing.

Maximizing Tennis As An Exercise

If you want to maximize the exercise you can get out of tennis, find people who are just as competitive as you. They can give you the workout that you need as they make you make a run for the ball as much as you would them; maybe even more.

One of the good things about tennis is that, not only does it burn fats, it also builds muscles which replaces the fats. Take your training seriously; learn the moves and do them; learn the dynamics. This is a natural way of getting more intense with the game. The harder you play, the more muscles you build, the more fats you get rid of.

Here’s an article on Huffington Post:

Tennis Is John Travolta’s Exercise

Last year, Travolta told InTouch of the exercise routine that helped him lose the pounds. “I’ve been working hard! Six games of tennis a day plus an hour of weight lifting. Everyday, well no, six days a week,” he said.

Cardio Tennis Exercise

Last year, Travolta told InTouch of the exercise routine that helped him lose the pounds. “I’ve been working hard! Six games of tennis a day plus an hour of weight lifting. Everyday, well no, six days a week,” he said.

People who are only after the weight loss more than learning the sport itself take cardio tennis as theirexercise alternative. Cardio tennis is a high intensity workout that is a mix of running, tennis moves, calisthenics, and fitness drills. Women who do this can lose up to 500 calories an hour, while men can burn twice as much.
