According to Statistic Brain, three of the top ten New Year’s Resolutions are health improvement related. Gym memberships increase by 30% in January, as eager to get in shape individuals crowd into neighborhood gyms, waiting their turn on the treadmills and weight machines. Those who prefer working out at home to avoid the grunting, groaning, waiting, and sweaty odor of a crowded gym, opt to purchase home equipment; usually a treadmill for a more private work out in a more ambient atmosphere.

Tennis Racquet Review: Babolat Aero Pro Lite

February 18th, 2013 by Greg C

filed in Tennis Product Reviews, Tennis Racquet Reviews

The Babolat Aero Pro Lite is updated for 2013 with a new logo, graphics, and a physical design that creates an even quicker stroke. Continuing with Babolat’s high-visibility graphics and black/white/yellow scheme, the Babolat Aero Pro Lite is an attractive racquet.  One benefit that I like is the fact that as the racquet ages it’s rather busy design helps conceal “battle scars.”

Tennis Racquet Review: Wilson Blade 98 (18 x 20)

February 11th, 2013 by Marc Pinckney

filed in Tennis Product Reviews, Tennis Racquet Reviews

After hitting with the new Wilson Blade 93 tennis racquet, I was understandably excited to hit with some of the other new frames in the Wilson line. I was thinking that the Blade 98 would be a nice frame for less experienced players. I cannot even begin to state how misplaced that youthful optimism was.

The new Volkl Organix 7 has two versions:  295g and 310g.  This play-test is with the 295g (labeled 10.4 oz) and is intended to be the choice of players who desire a medium-weight racquet that offers some power without any sacrifice of control.  It is a “tweener” racquet (between game improvement and a true “player’s” racquet).

Tennis Racquet Review: Wilson Blade 93

January 28th, 2013 by Marc Pinckney

filed in Tennis Product Reviews, Tennis Racquet Reviews

For a long time now I have been off Wilson racquets. They have always made the best frames in my mind, in a historical sense, but the last few years a lot of their ‘player’ frames felt clunky and unwieldy. This was true even for someone who had played with Wilson racquets for much of his life and was therefore predisposed to give a new Wilson offering a favorable look.

Edwards Tennis Nets: You Don’t Hear About Them, Because They Work So Well

January 14th, 2013 by Christopher Mohr

When it comes to managing sports facilities, it’s a great day when certain topics don’t come up. If you operated softball diamonds for championship tournaments, you wouldn’t want to deal with complaints about the dimensions of the playing fields. At the end of the tournament, it’s your hope that no one ever brings the matter up, because no one ever gives praise for a properly configured field. In tennis it’s no different. If tennis nets, posts and the court surface are not within specifications, people will complain but if they are reliable no one notices or comments.

Many campaigns have been launched in the name of improving diet and fitness in recent years. A few years ago, the National Football League started the Play 60 campaign encouraging children to be active at least 60 minutes a day in an effort to prevent child obesity. Former Surgeon General C. Everett Koop founded Shape Up America in 1994 to address obesity. Many other organizations dedicated to health and fitness like these were created to promote and educate the public about fitness and more healthy lifestyles. One of the more unusual ones, Project Tennis Backboard, seeks to make tennis backboards more available to the public.
