They say, “If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere.”

Well, pickleball is making headlines for the New York Times again, and no, it’s not about noise complaints (this time). It’s an article titled “The Ultimate Workout for Pickleball Lovers.”

However, the article goes on to say that pickleball alone might not be enough (gasp!) because it won’t necessarily build muscle, and the constant starting, stopping, and waiting for your turn (build more courts already!) might not

And, while playing pickleball is certainly what we all want to do more of, it’s hard to argue against getting your body in the best shape possible so that you can play longer, harder, and for
