The Incorpore Team were recently put through their paces in a Cardio Tennis workout with Virgin Active Brighton, and this is what they thought:
“Cardio tennis was undeniably tougher than I’d imagined! It was however a great workout and there were pretty good team building elements too, it was great to see the #Incorpore team getting competitive but also working together to try and complete the challenges – admittedly we were a bit useless at the tennis element, poor Grant (our instructor) was probably glad to see the back of us after our session…we all had fun though!” – Rachel
“Great way to burn some calories quickly whilst learning some tennis skills. The instructors were really fun but made sure we were pushing ourselves. Highly recommend!” – Oli
“Really fun, intense workout in the sunshine – everything ached the next day!” – Lauren
“Cardio tennis was really good fun and even though I am not the most co-ordinated individual the coaches were very encouraging and engaging. The class was fast paced so I didn’t have time to worry about my lack of tennis skills and one of the best cardio workouts in have had in a long time!” – Lucy
