What a year we have in store!
The 2012 Olympics comes to London. Massive media coverage will be 'all eyes' on the athletics. With such a variety of events in store, even the most unenthusiastic gym fanatic cannot help but be both inspired and motivated.
Having two children, as exciting as it would be to attend the Olympic Stadium for the day, I fear that the television may be the more realistic option. Though spending hours a week glued to the TV is hardly reciprocating our on screen heroes' passion for sport, and will surely end up a family of couch potatoes! So, with that in mind, I have devised our very own 2012 Olympics. This comes in the form of our children’s play house, with built in slide, scramble nets, ladders and climbing ropes. What a fantastic way of keeping the children fit whilst enjoying quality family fun time, all in one! With training now well underway, the lucky competitors selected, the various circuits planned, the children are fired up raring to go, adrenalin pumping with the dream of becoming one of their Olympic heroes foremost in their minds…. Let the tournament begin!!
Why not use the Olympics to develop your garden and install the ultimate family athletic play frame. So Mums and Dads get inspired! With every structure personalised to suit your family needs, including your budget, you can be as elaborate as you dare. This sort of 'in house equipment' can be adapted for all the family, so when designing your ultimate play house or activity play frame, it’s worth bearing in mind all the family’s needs, as even the most simple of play frames can be imaginatively used. Make it your New Year’s fitness plan. Imagine, after the school run, there’s nothing to stop you using it as your own personalised circuit training, developing stamina and muscle tone, saving on gym fees and travelling.
The Olympics will inevitably end, medals be presented and the grand farewell celebrations held. Why not end your Olympics with your own celebration, an evening to remember with a BBQ supper served in the play house, reminiscing about the past weeks' escapades with affection.
Remember, the children’s play house may return to just that, as the Olympics become a distant memory, but you will be left with an outside entertainment centre for many years to come; not only for your children, but their friends as well.
Don’t let the 2012 Olympics pass you by, be part of it and add your family to this legendary year.
