A typical Squashercise class begins with a gentle warm-up to raise your heart rate and get you prepped for higher intensity.
It then moves on to focus on major muscle groups and introduces exercises aimed to improve your range of squash-specific movements. This is then followed by some unique routines to develop squash and racketball skills such as ‘battleship throwing’, ‘throw and ducks’, and ‘walk the dog’ – having fun, keeping fit and developing your game all in one go!
And then it’s time to bring your heart rate back down, with a little light warm-down activity as well as some stretching.
All you need is normal sportswear and trainers, some centres will insist on non-marking shoes. Racquets and balls will be provided by the coach.
