Improving My Fitness Level

Tennis is one of those games that can make a workout fun. It improves your mental focus, hand-eye coordination, and improves flexibility in the joints, particularly your hips and serving shoulder. It also tones the arms, calves, hamstrings, quadriceps, shoulders, and upper back.

Increased physical activity has been shown to decrease the risk of heart disease and high blood pressure, increase energy, and reduce stress and anxiety. Studies have shown that older tennis players have significantly lower body-fat levels than sedentary people of similar ages.

Much of a person's decline in fitness is caused by disuse and not by aging, according to Dr. Robert Leach, vice chairman of the USTA Sport Science Committee. Leach has observed that people who started playing tennis at a young age and continued throughout their lifetimes retained the highest level of fitness. Even resuming playing tennis later in life still returned significant benefits, including maintaining aerobic capacity at higher levels than those who don't.

"The good news," according to U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Donna Shalala "is that you don't have to train like an Olympic athlete to enjoy the benefits of a healthy lifestyle. Participating in activities such as tennis or at least 30 minutes per day, most days of the week, is good for your health and good for your future."

Do I Need to Stretch Before Using My Lobster Sports Tennis Ball Machine?

Yes. As with all strenuous physical activities, you reduce your risk of injury by stretching to warm up your muscles. Five to ten minutes of stretching your major muscle groups should suffice.

Why does a 2-year warranty matter?

Does the 2 Year Warranty Really Matter?

Why would one company offer a two-year warranty and another company offer a 1 year warranty? Lobster has so much confidence in its products that it can afford to offer a 2 year warranty. Ask yourself why our competition doesn't have equal confidence in the durability of its products.

When comparing purchase prices between machines, you should consider the two year warranty carefully. The cost of ownership will quickly rise if the machine breaks down soon after the warranty expires. Imagine owning a machine for 14 months, it malfunctions and now you are out $50 to ship it to the factory at least $100-$200 to fix it and $50 to ship it home. A $300 repair bill might make you think twice about the true cost of purchasing that 1 year warranty machine.

Finally, consider that Lobster Sports, Inc has been in business for 39 years – that means we were in business for 20 years before our competition even considered opening its doors. Quality isn't some new found commitment, it is part of who we are and have been for generations. When you buy a Lobster ball machine, you purchase peace of mind because you know you have bought a product built for life.
