Um, it's also really fun

Squash players

Lest I made the most amazing sport In Ever sound unpleasant (or at least not worthwhile), I did come across this on Wikipedia:

Squash provides an excellent cardiovascular workout. In one hour of squash, a player may expend approximately 700 to 1000 calories (3,000 to 4,000 kJ) which is significantly more than most other sports[1] and over 70% more than either general tennis or racquetball.[2] The sport also provides a good upper and lower body workout by utilising both the legs to run around the court and the arms/torso to swing the racquet. In 2003, Forbes rated squash as the number one healthiest sport to play.[3]
