I found going to the gym boring and inconvenient. I never went regularly and flushed thousands of dollars down the drain without ever making a significant improvement to my health and fitness. Once a week or less just didn’t cut it.

squash was a great fit for me

Then I took up squash.

I played hockey growing up and really loved it. I’ve always thrived on competitive sports and games—wanting to win, and the camaraderie with teammates and opponents. So squash was a great fit for me.

It wasn’t about getting fit. It was about having fun.

Then I wanted to improve my fitness to improve my game. So I started going to the gym regularly.

Suddenly I was working out at least three times a week.

Suddenly I hired a personal trainer.

Suddenly I’m stronger and fitter than I’ve been my entire adult life.

Not only that, but I also have a whole new circle of friends. We play doubles, singles, and compete in tournaments. We push each other to play our best and hardest and have a ton of fun while doing it.

We also have fun off the court with post-game drinks, get-togethers, and spectator sports—live or at our favourite sports pub.

I had no idea what I was getting into when I decided to give squash a try. It just snuck up on me, and changed my fitness game effortlessly.
