The Multiple Health Benefits of Tennis

Tennis affords an opportunity to augment your fitness routine while bouncing your fitness level upwards. Changing the activities you participate in a few times a week can help in not only improving your health but also your skill level in sports.  Tennis is a well rounded sport that does much of the same thing as sprinting and coordination exercises but is much more fun. I’m an advocate of using multiple sports and activities to improve health. Engaging exclusively in a single sport will use the same muscles repetitively can cause an injury. When a change in the activity occurs there is also a change in the type of muscles used, the skills learned, and ultimately the fitness level.

Just off the Coronado Bridge is the Tidelands Park that stands as a welcome matt to Coronado visitors that just pass over the bridge. It not only hosts a great view of the bay and bridge but also lots of recreational activities. Biking, walking, swimming, baseball, BBQ, skateboarding and too many other things to mention.  Families flock to the area in search of Sunday activities. From the bay to the birds the people bask in the sun and enjoy each other’s company. Coronado is a popular weekend destination and visitors often stop at the park to lounge. Downtown Coronado is only a few miles away.  A major attraction is the paved coastal walk. Along the cost and under the bridge people can skateboard and bike while enjoying the view. One can watch the boats sail by and enjoy the coastal life. If you are in the area it is worth the visit.  http://www.portofsandiego.org/coronado-tidelands-park.html    

The Outdoor Sights at Seagrove Park in Del Mar

Seagrove Park is a small but still magnificent example of coast living. As a park, you will see many visitors flying kites, walking down the beach, gazing at the ocean, walking among the flowers, or doing yoga under the ocean sky. There are plenty of benches and places to sit and ponder life as we know it. It is a small refreshment from our busy weeks.  Seagrove Park also offers the ability to host events, weddings, and other happenings. It is a well manicured park with no perceptible decay or trash. Walkways are unbroken and well maintained. On warm days you may find surfers and beach goers enjoy a few rays.  Park Management (858) 755-1524 lrogers@delmar.ca.us
