We all know that it’s important for all of us Mojo Lovers to get in our exercise, right? (Right.) The gym is a healthy place, although we don’t particularly care for the grunters and “stare masters” (those guys who watch themselves in the mirror during every last bicep curl).
Sometimes, it’s more fun to take your fitness outdoors in the Cali/Arizona sunshine! The US Open kicks off next week, which has us primed to hit the courts and mimic Andy Roddick’s monster serve.
On top of that, we’re pretty big tennis fans o’er here at Mojo, so we wanted to pass along some good tennis vibes.
The USTA posted a terrific article about the health benefits of playing tennis. Here are two of the most interesting facts:
1. People who participate in tennis 3 hours per week (at moderately vigorous intensity) cut their risk of death in half from any cause, according to physician Ralph Paffenbarger who studied over 10,000 people over a period of 20 years.
2. Tennis players scored higher in vigor, optimism and self-esteem while scoring lower in depression, anger, confusion, anxiety and tension than other athletes.

It’s always good to have a coach. Some of us don’t have the cashola to dish for a coach, though. We found some pretty funny “lessons” for the coachless set over here: Speed Lessons with Novak Djokovic.
In case you don’t know who Novak Djokovic is, check out this hilarious video that has been making the rounds online:
There’s a guy with some positive Mojo!
Now, get out, get active, and treat yourself to some healthy fro yo goodness after you’ve exhausted yourself on the courts!
We’d love to tell you, Mojo Lovers, that a sexy, toned core is the sole byproduct of consuming fat-free Mojo, but it takes a little more. Recently, we saw a terrific article on Women’s Health about getting that flat tummy we all desire. You can even download the workout to your iPod!
And, after you’re done sweating it out in the gym, make sure to hit up Mojo for a post-workout delight. Dibs on the POM NRG!
