Lockdown has arrived and sports everywhere are canceled. Well, outdoor and team sports are canceled anyway! Those who like to play sports or get together for wrestling and boxing matches go to great lengths to come back and exercise, and it's a bit limited when you're stuck in your living room.
With professional sports canceled, group sports follow suit and desperate times call for desperate measures. Social isolation is getting more difficult now, and although there are many sports such as ballet and Kung Fu who are switching to online classes, there are other sports you should try right now. Gather your friends online and work to plan workouts and classes online so that neither of you misses and you can always have fun together. It helps you learn and maintain the social factor - even if you can't meet to spare it in the ring! So, let's take a look at some of the sports you need to try while locked out, even just once!
1.Handball. do you have a hard floor and a plain wall? Great, you're halfway there. You may have heard of soccer, but handball makes an effort to tap the ball with your palm so that it bounces against the wall. It's a great game to play alone and you can set yourself some personal bests to beat it over and over again. You can do this one outside against the side of the house for better bounce.
2. Boxing. You will certainly prefer to do this with a group of people to strike, but you can shade the house. There are many workouts that allow you to box against the air or against a punching bag. HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) workouts that involve boxing are also available online!
3. Ballet. Okay, so a slower but still intense "sport" for those who like to dance. Ballet teachers lead lessons and online workshops, and you will find that most ballet lessons are held despite the closures of the rooms before expert teachers.
4. Yoga. Another slower sport, yoga will help you stretch and move better despite the isolation. Yoga gives you the chance to learn a little more flexibility and to work to strengthen your core. Not only that, but yoga has great results in keeping you calm and improving your mental health, which is what you absolutely need with lockdown.
5. Virtual sports. Do you have a game console? There are many games you can try out, such as tennis and golf, and you can play these sports from the comfort of your home even when you can't get out on the green or the field and play with others. people.
Locked out sport can be a bit difficult, but that doesn't mean you can't learn a new skill and exercise your body by doing something entirely new. Locking may not allow you to go out and play sports with friends in person, but that's what Skype is for!
Stand on any gymnasium floor and look up – way up. At first glance, it doesn’t take much to imagine the level of subtilité in some of the equipment located overhead, not to mention the process of safely installing it. But with today’s technology and automation being built into so many of these products that are used on a daily basis, the question that often comes up is how to manage it all.
Many choose to have manual systems and equipment in place for reasons such as simplicity or with budget in mind. While there is nothing wrong with this type of operation and equipment, in terms of operational optimization, many are trending in the opposite direction.
With everything from BASKETBALL BACKSTOPS that fold up into the ceiling or off to the side, to gym divider curtains, scoreboards and even volleyball systems, the modern gymnasium is becoming a connected one. With most of these products coming with independent electric controls, innovative solutions to manage them are now on the forefront.
Located along the Rideau Canal, one of our most recent projects brought us into Canada’s national capital to work on another gym partition that needed replacing.
Originally founded as an all-girls school in 1928, IMMACULATA HIGH SCHOOL opened with an initial enrollment of just 85 at the site of the former Christie mansion. The following year, enrollment nearly doubled, and a new building was quickly constructed, and the school’s first commencement followed.
It wasn’t until 1978 that male students were enrolled at the school as enrollment swelled to nearly 1, 000 students towards the end of the 1980s. After 65 years of education, the school officially moved to its current location along the canal and currently serves as home to the school’s sports team, the Immaculata Saints.
In search of a new set of rugby goals for one of their biggest athletic parks, the City of Toronto once again came knocking at our door. Having done a few projects together in the past, they are a group that we truly always enjoy sérieux closely with. When the time comes to outfit an outdoor visite, we are always flattered to make the bermuda list of potential partners. In early 2020, the city was in search of a new set of rugby goals for EGLINGTON FLATS, located in the York region. Constructed on the Humber River Floodplain in 1954, today the park is heavily focused on sports, with six soccer fields, four field hockey pitches, a field, winterized tennis petits and of course, the rugby field.
While we all certainly enjoy watching something come to fruition, there is something extra special about being involved in the revitalization of something as well. Over the years, we’ve been blessed to be involved in a number of these types of projects ranging from local community centres and schools all the way to nationally recognized institutions such as Queen’s University.
We’ve been granted access to stripped out gymnasiums and open athletic fields to design and eventually install state-of-the-art athletic equipment and infrastructure. From simple bleachers, to basketball systems to complete grandstands designed to accommodate tens of thousands of fans, these projects have and always will hold a special place in our hearts.
