Do you know what it means to be functionally fit? One in 3 people – and 60% of those over 65 – suffer from a functional limitation limiting their ability to carry out daily activities – like climbing stairs, bending over to tie their shoes, picking something up off the floor, or carrying groceries.
If you’d like to hear my radio interview on Remedying Functional Limitations with Functional Fitness on About Health, here it is!
The Sports Basement and HealthStyleRx, affirmed an exciting partnership on Friday which will further support my friends and followers’ fitness goals and cultivate fun in moving.
If you haven’t discovered the Sports Basement yet, it’s a sporting-goods retailer with seven locations in the San Francisco Bay Area. They’re known for selling the “best brands at basement prices”.
Sports Basement is more than just a retailer. What I’m most excited about is that it’s a community center for outdoor enthusiasts, athletes, families, and visitors. Yes, you can get gear to enjoy hiking, cycling, running, swimming, and birdwatching. And if you’re more adventurous, you can buy (or rent!) camping gear, skis and snowboards, and triathlon wetsuits.
But it’s not just about things to buy – it’s about things to do, together. Sports Basement hosts weekly events, such as:
Snowshoe camping trips
Bicycle maintenance clinics
Wilderness first aid courses
Rent a Bicycle
If you want to join the flock of cyclists making their way along the Iron Horse Regional Trail, you can rent a bike at the Sports Basement and hop right onto the trail. You can rent a tandem bike for double the fun and even rent a trailer for your little ones.
Coming up… we’ll be celebrating our partnership with aKick-Off Shopping Party! on Thursday, August 3 from 5-9:00 pm.
The Sports Basement San Ramon is located at 1041 Market Place, San Ramon, CA 94583. (925) 202-0230
