  2. Excellent quality inflatable game equipments from Blue Inflatable

    April 3, 2018 by barbara

    Bubble football is a sport similar to regular football as it involves playing and scoring a soccer ball. The only difference is that the players are encased in inflatable spheres excluding the legs only. Also; there are no goalkeepers involved since the arms are also enclosed along with the head, chest, stomach, waist, and thighs inside the sphere. The aim of playing this sport is to finish the game with more goals than the opponent. However, the battle between the opposing players is what makes bubble football special. This is because it involves knocking one another to the ground, but with no one getting harmed.

    Bubble soccer is that sport which guarantees players to smile and laugh throughout. This includes the spectators too as they watch the falling players roll across the field. This sport is also relatively affordable since it can be used on various types of indoor and outdoor surfaces such as grass, artificial turf, gym floors, and carpets. This implies that it can take place throughout the year without worrying about the weather. These places can be basketball courts, gyms, tennis courts, football playgrounds, open grassy fields, and backyards, among others. Also, this sport can be played by anyone above 10 years old.

    Besides the fun it provides, bubble balls involves working out the body to the maximum. This is because players get to run, jump, dive, stretch, and shoot. This usually leads to serious sweating which is essential in relieving the body of toxics. The exercises are also helpful in maintaining the players physically and mentally fit. Meanwhile; this sport is NOT for those which health & medical conditions like severe claustrophobia, headaches, heart attacks, asthma, and nausea. And lastly, all kids below 18 years old should have signed waiver agreements from their parents or guardians or caretakers allowing them to play. Find more details from blue inflatable.

  5. Running To Stay Fit

    May 19, 2015 by barbara

    In order to stay fit and healthy, I run a few times a week.  I do it on a threadmill during weekdays and on weekends I try to run outdoor at the park or in the neighbourhood.  I try to run longer distance when I am outdoor.  Running is a great stress reliever for me.  The sound of my breathing helps to clear my mind.  Usually when I am under stress, I would go for a run and that calms me down.  I just spotted a running tee which I like.  I wonder if it is handmade and dri-fit. Funny tee right? I can really relate to that.

  7. Getting Rid Of Lower Tummy Bulge

    May 23, 2011 by barbara

    Besides wanting to get my hands on some hgh releasers badly, another thing that is on top of my list is this Lower Stomach Beauty Trainer from Japan Trend Shop.  I want to get rid of my lower tummy bulge as soon as possible.  Actually I want to get rid of the whole tummy bulge and not just the lower part.  This slimming exercise cushion is effective and all you need to do is to slide your feet and legs into the holes and twist your body from side to side.  Easy?   I think I can spend 30 minutes doing this while watching the tv.  This cushion is great for slimming the waist and stomach.  Plus you do not need a lot of space to store it.  Can’t wait to see my toes when I’m standing up.

  8. How To Hide Flabby Arms

    August 14, 2010 by barbara

    Lately, I have taken a liking to cardigans.  I like cardis because they are very versatile.  I can always wear a sleeveless top with a cardi over it so that my flabby arms are not visible.  I have never worn any sleeveless tops before. Well, not when I am out of the house because  I am very conscious of my flabby arms.  With the cardis, I can wear whatever tops I want now.  Perhaps I should get myself an elliptical trainer to stay in shape and tone my arms eh?

  9. Working Out At Home

    October 20, 2009 by barbara

    I have been watching The Biggest Loser on tv (reruns) everyday.  Seeing those contestants working out at the gym and pushing themselves to the limit are really inspiring.  I would love to get myself a weight machine to do some exercise at home.  Been looking around some home gyms and came across a few good quality ones at Weider.  I especially like this Weider C720 System.   Let’s hope this is what I would be getting for Christmas 🙂
