This past June, members of the Cardio Tennis National Speaker's Team, traveled to the American College of Sports Medicine Annual Meeting in San Francisco to deliver heart-pumping Cardio Tennis workouts to conference attendees. The ACSM is an organization with more than 45,000 members and certified professionals from 90 countries, representing 70 occupations within the sports medicine field. The ACSM annual meeting is one of the most comprehensive sports medicine and exercise science conferences in the world, where attendees share new clinical techniques, scientific advancements and cutting-edge research in sports medicine, exercise science, physical activity and public health.
Two Cardio Tennis classes were offered to attendees of the ACSM Annual Meeting to introduce them to the health benefits of tennis and the Cardio Tennis program. "With a focus on cardiovascular exercise and the practice of heart-rate monitoring during the workout, Cardio Tennis is a great way to promote the sport of tennis to the medical field," says Cardio Tennis Program Manager Michele Krause. "Our goal in delivering these workouts at the ACSM Annual Meeting was to have these sports medicine professionals experience what a great cardiovascular workout Cardio Tennis is and to have them become advocates for the program by recommending tennis participation to their clients as a way to get and stay healthy and fit."
Brian Hainline, Chief Medical Officer for the USTA, who attended the ACSM Annual Meeting and Cardio Tennis workouts, was thrilled with the enthusiasm and excitement Cardio Tennis brought to the conference. "Cardio Tennis at the American College of Sports Medicine Annual Meeting in San Francisco was a huge success. The courts were full, and the hard-core enthusiasts had a tremendous workout under the leadership of the Cardio Tennis Speakers team– bright and early from 6:30-7:30 am. This is a testament to the collaboration of Cardio Tennis, USTA Nor Cal, and USTA National Community Tennis, and it is a wonderful model for introducing tennis to the medical community," Hainline said.
