The Fantastic Anniversary of Our Club

Back in August, we had been invited for the 10th anniversary of our son’s soccer club in Devon and it was quite a blast.

For the celebration they did all kinds of stuff, like a great barbecue with by itself is definitely worth mentioning since the ribs were just out of this world.

They also had a pretty good DJ booked for the day but the best part, at least to me, was when the Secret Singers came about early in the evening. I didn’t know about the Singing Waiters in London yet so I was actually one of those few guests at the party who really at first thought that they where part of the wait staff they had for the event.

I realised my naivety as soon as the guys started singing and dancing. They did an awesome show which lasted for about two hours where they played and sang all the latest hits but also some classics like from AC/DC,Sting or the Beatles. The best part was when they pulled some of guests up on stage to do a little singing with them which was about the most hideous thing ever.

I can highly recommend these guys if you want some fun for your next party or whatever event. I’ve been told that you can hire them for all sorts of parties and celebrations but you may want to do that early enough otherwise they may be booked out for months.

Are Magnetic Bracelets Suitable for Sports?

When Charles told me two months ago that he had big success relieving his arthritis pain with a couple of magnetic bracelets I was initially very skeptical. It was not so much about that I doubted that this type of jewellery actually works since my niece already told me it does wonders for her.

My concern was mainly that a magnetic bracelet and similar things would not exactly help me when I want to play golf. In the past are already tried some types of jewellery but those always caused some kind of discomfort or at least made me sweat where I wore the bracelet.

So what I did was that I went on a quest on the Internet to find magnetic bracelets that they can wear comfortably without all those disadvantages.

If you ever try to improve your golf swing you will know what I’m talking about and that any piece of unnecessary jewellery there can be quite a hindrance.

I have to say I was quite lucky in my search for magnetic bracelets since I found some very neat pieces with leather bands. They were also very affordable so I ordered two of them without really thinking much about it.

I have to admit that two weeks or may be a very short time to give you a clear report on whether they work for me so we decided I want to wait a little longer before I make a final judgement about those bracelets. From what I can tell right now it seems there is a slight relief so it seems that the bracelets are working.

I really like the magnetic leather bracelets regardless of their ability to possibly relieve may arthritis pains. Next week I want to get two more, this time two that are made from carbon which is also very light so it won’t be an issue when I play golf.

Fitness and Yoga in London Fields


One could think that finding a good fitness gym in London shouldn’t be a major problem, seeing that we sure don’t have a shortage of gyms here in the British capital.

On the other hand, it is exactly this abundance of fitness gyms and yoga studios that can make the search overwhelming. One reason for this is also that lots of the good, often small and independent gyms have been bought out by our big fitness chains.

Ever since many of the former independent gyms in London are gone I also happen to notice a drop in quality with many of those fitness gyms. When I say “quality” I mean both, the quality and friendliness of the service but also the overall quality of the gyms, in particular their equipment.

So as it happens, even with plenty of gyms to choose from in London, it may well be that money to spend some time to find one of those remaining quality gyms.

What about East London?

What I said above obviously also applies to East London. If you’re looking for a good gym in London Fields I can recommend that you see London Fields Fitness. This gym is one of my favourites especially for their variety of classes and training courses. Fancy Pilates in Hackney? Then you should check them out! One of those gyms where you cannot only go to when you want to lose weight or want to build your muscles, they also have great yoga classes that I can highly recommend to you.

Getting An Apprenticeship in Sports

Apprenticeships and internships are arguably the best way to get into a desired career field and this is of course also true for a career in sports.


Apprenticeships in Sports: Here Is How You Can Find Them

If you have such a career in mind, like for example a trainer position or as a medical professional in sports medicine, an apprenticeship can help you to get in with those teams or companies you always wanted.

The good thing about this approach is that apprenticeships can even get you into companies and teams when they would normally not even hire.

The reason here is that many companies have less problems with taking an apprentice (since it costs them less money) while they would otherwise be hesitant to hire full time employees.

Since a good majority of apprentices are getting hired at the end of their term, an apprenticeship could well be considered a “trick” or shortcut to get into those teams and companies nevertheless.

How to get an apprenticeship in sports?

In past times it was somewhat more difficult to find apprenticeships in London and elsewhere since the major job websites did not really list many apprenticeship openings. Most of those sites specialize in full time positions.

However, in recent times we have seen increasingly more job search websites that are specializing in internships and apprenticeships.

So if you’re looking for sports apprenticeships and other types of apprenticeships in the United Kingdom I can highly recommend those sites to you. They make it easy to find apprenticeship positions in London and all over the UK.

Sports And Education

For some children in the United Kingdom, and of course for their parents too, sports is an equally important part in regards to good education along with classes such as maths, chemistry or foreign languages.

And obviously, participating in sports regularly is also known to be very beneficial for your children’s health.

One issue in the UK is that public schools are not necessarily seeing the benefits of sporty activities. For those schools, an hour or two of sports per week seems to be enough; some schools don’t even have teams where you child could participate in sports such as soccer, cricket or basketball just to name a few.

Private schools are normally much better when sports is important for you and your children. Those schools are understanding the importance to participate in sporty activities and often have their entire school culture built around their sports teams. It is often form those private and independent schools where the most successful young adults will grow up, those who later-on may become successful leaders, not only in sports but in many other areas of life.

The Kingshottschool has a reputation as one of the best prep schools in Hertfordshire for sport. This is the school I recommend since I have my children there and they cannot be happier. If your children love sports and you look for Hertfordshire private schools you should definitely consider this excellent school.

Real Madrid Eying To Buy Manchester City Keeper Joe Hart

Manchester’s City Keeper Hart, 26, is the new target eyed by the Spanish giants. Rumours are about a potential £25M deal in a move to spice-up the Spaniard’s goalkeeping department.

Joe Hart

Manchester’s Joe Hart Soon Off To Real?

It seems that Real’s Iker Cassilas future is now uncertain. There are more rumours that Cassilas might possibly be offered to city as part of an exchange deal.

The Daily Mail is reporting that the Spaniard’s current #1 Diego Lopez has not convinced boss Carlo Ancelotti he is the long-term successor to Casillas. Diego Lopez is also on the shopping list of AC Milan.

According to the Daily Mail, Cassillas is cited as saying…

“I wanted to play, but I wasn’t playing so I had to work hard and wait for my chance again. It’s tough to say because that’s probably one of the main reasons I’ve not really spoken about it.

The past is the past and we don’t know what lies ahead in the future – so it’s better to live day by day. We are going to get some wonderful opportunities at this club – some I will be playing in, some that I won’t – and I’m just trying to look at things the best I can.”

Some fans are puzzled by these latest rumours and are pointing out that Real should look into their defence department rather than acquiring a new goal keeper.

We will keep you updated on all the news as soon as they come in.
