Some of the known Benefits of our Badminton coaching are:

  • Physical fitness: Between running, lunging, diving and hitting, playing badminton burns fat at approximately 450 calories per hour. This kind of cardiovascular workout can help keep you in tip top shape, especially if you’re looking for a good alternative cross-training exercise.

  • Increased muscle tone: Playing badminton builds and tones the quads, glutes, calves and hamstrings. In addition, your core muscles, arm and back muscles get a workout as well. In addition to improving flexibility, players also gain muscle strength and endurance.

  • Social health: You’ll need at least one opponent, but you can also play with a teammate and two other opponents. The social interactions of a game will result in positive feelings after a session on the court. Joining a league can also help you become part of a community.

  • Good for overall health: As with all forms of physical exercise, badminton can reduce or eliminate your risk for many health problems, such as high blood pressure, diabetes and obesity. It can also reduce your risk for coronary heart disease by reducing your triglyceride levels and increasing your “good” cholesterol.

  • Weight loss: Badminton can also help with weight control because of its fat-burning and metabolism boosting qualities. Combined with a proper diet, optimal weight loss may be achieved.
