Final Day of Sports Massage Course 161211

The participants had their written and practical exam today. They all got their certs. Our Sports Massage course was very well received and received rave reviews from participants from the feedback forms we got them to fill out.

One participant who previously attended another sports massage course said our course's  (practical component)  trumps his previous course hands down while another said our anatomy part was "really detailed, useful and in depth yet easily understood (even better than the strength and conditioning course's anatomy) " that he attended in Melbourne.

Well, you have read and seen the pictures of our Sports Massage course, call us to find out more. Next course is 2,3,9 and 10 March 2013.

To all our participants, chapeau! (or hats off) for a job well done. Read more here.

We have a great bunch of participants in our current massage course. Day 2 included a full on anatomy theory session in the morning with Aized and a practical session on the lower half of the body with Marlene.
It's the end of our first weekend. We look forward to meeting the group again next weekend!

We have also planned for the next Sports Solutions Sports Massage Course to be on the first two weekends in March 2013. Please register by emailing or call us at 62236078. Please do so early as we would like to keep our class small to ensure you get all the attention you need!

The 100 Best Running Sneakers Of All Time

Came across this report on recently in which the article listed their 100 best running sneakers of all time.

This list will definitely stir up some comments, strong feelings and fond memories for others (including myself). I may not agree with all that is on the list, but that's me.

This list got me thinking of my previous own running shoes. Two of shoes I remember fondly were on the list, the Eagle (please see picture below, although mine was red and white) and the Sock Racer, yes both Nike shoes. As a young runner, I did well enough for Nike to give me shoes then (this was when Nike was brought in to Singapore by sole agent Robertson Wilson). Some of you old enough will remember that.

Nike Eagle, no 47 on the list
No 81 on the list Nike Sock Racer

I even found this Nike Sock Trainer and Sock Racer ad
My favourite racing shoe from Nike was missing from the list though, the Nike Duellist PR. I think I still have my pair from 1989, at my parent's place (hopefully my mum hasn't thrown it away).

Duellist (mine was lime green though)
In recent times though, my favourite running shoe was the pair that Adidas made for me when I went to the 2005 SEA games, racing in the triathlon event. Well,  it was custom made for me.

My own custom made shoes which I used at the SEA Games Triathlon event
How about you? You will probably have your own favourite pair(s). Let me know your views.
