Top 5 Football Tailgating Tips

September 22nd, 2014

With the NFL and NCAA Regular Football Seasons upon us, it is time to reflect and plan for a past time as old and as storied as football itself. Tailgating. Take a look at our Top 5 Tips for NFL and NCAA Tailgating.

  1. Get to the Stadium Early: The seasoned veterans will be there early and so should you. Anything later than three hours before game time is a rookie move. After all you’re going to need a lot of time to set up your gear like your Folding Picnic Table.
  2. Find a Great Parking Place: There a lot of options in stadium parking and depending on your game day plan, you may choose be near a grassy area or a shady area; however, if you can’t find shade try this umbrella to make those hot days more bearable. This one comes with it’s own bar!
  3. Behave:It’s best to double-check the rules of the particular stadium you are visiting. Some don’t allow alcohol for example. Please have fun, but also please be respectful of others. Clean up after your gig and make sure that grill doesn’t burn down your ride. Speaking of BBQs, check out this great Team Logo BBQ set from Picnic Time.
  4. Always Have a Plan:This cannot be overlooked. We like to use Evernote task lists to create a pre-game checklist that is reusable. You can check and uncheck things from your list with ease. Make sure you have your team sway along with something to eat on and something to eat with. Lastly, remember the big green garbage bags to make clean up a lot easier. Here is a full listing of other must-have gear for the game, all sorted by your favorite team!
  5. Leave it Better than You Found It:It’s always courteous to leave your party place cleaner than you found it, so please don’t get flagged for leaving trash about. Lastly, aluminum foil or aluminum pans are a great way to contain hot coals, and use melted ice to cool them down for the ride home.

Top 5 Home Exercise Machines for Aching Knees

August 19th, 2014

A great exercise shouldn’t just be just for people in perfect health. Old and young, healthy or recovering, the joy of working out is for everyone. So what do you do when joints start aching and working out is no longer enjoyable? Change your gear and stay in the game. Aching knees are very common among adults and these 5 types of exercise machines will help make working out fun again. Each of these machines comes in several styles for your needs and your budget.

  1. Riding Stationary Exercise Bikes is low impact and provides a great cardio workout. Biking also strengthens the muscles that support the knee. If done consistently, knee pain will diminish while doing every day tasks as well.
  2. Elliptical Machines are durable, quiet, and offer low impact workouts for the legs and knees while still working several other key muscle groups. Elliptical trainers are fun with very little stress on the knees.
  3. Abdominal Equipment including abdominal benches, upper & lower abdominal exercise machines, and the classic abdominal wheel are not only low impact, but also help strengthen your core muscle group. A strong and healthy core is essential to any long-term exercise program and this type of equipment will help you get there.
  4. Stair Steppers & Climbers may not seem like an obvious choice for someone with aching knees; however, done properly at an appropriate pace for your fitness level, steppers can strengthen areas around the knee, which may help reduce or eliminate knee pain in other daily activities. Stair climbers are also low impact and great for the heart.
  5. Rowing Machines provide a terrific full-body cardio workout and won’t overstress your knees and joints. Done properly and at the appropriate fitness level for your needs, rowing also helps strengthen the upper body and lower back.

Before deciding on what exercise machine is best for you, as well as the safe and proper use of the machine, please consult your physician and/our licensed fitness professional. Lastly, the most common mistake when getting back into shape is doing too much too soon. So pace yourself, listen to your professionals, and have fun working out again!
