Squash – World’s Healthiest Sport
Squash has been dubbed the number one health and fitness sport in the world and its intensity compares to HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) workouts. According to a recent report by the World Health Organisation, physical activity drastically improves general health and reduces the risk of certain diseases. In short, we should all do more sport – so why not choose a full-body workout that is also social and fun? Squash is also easy to learn and therefore can be played by everyone. From the tender ages of four and five, players have kept up their game well into their 70s and sometimes even their 80s!
This racquet game boasts amazing benefits, and it can be played by anyone of any age with any skill or fitness level. For those reasons Cynergi is proud to introduce you to not just one but two WSF-approved squash courts. Both courts were fully refurbished along with our gym in 2016 bringing you the best squash experience in Malta.

That’s in addition to the calories burnt. For those who like calorie-counting, playing squash can burn 700 – 1000 calories per hour!
