Entering their 85th season, the Harlem Globetrotters have entertained millions of parents, children, and general basketball admirers with a unique brand of athletic precision and showmanship. For their latest “4 Times the Fun” North American tour, the Globetrotters will add a new 4-point shot spots located 35 feet from the basket, which is 12 feet further than the official three-point line but several thousand miles closer than the prime meridian. See the arch-nemesis Generals try to keep up as the Harlem hardwood sorcerers evade gravity’s oppressive clutches and court clairvoyants distribute unassailable alley-oops. Youngsters can learn about the benefits of teamwork while laughing along with the jovial jocks as they perform classic routines of unconventional passing and sudden transmutations of water into confetti.
Jamie Beeson is a walking paradox: a workout expert who loves to eat cookies. The personal trainer and head of Workoutplanz, however, doesn't view her fondness for dessert as a flaw—she believes practical fitness regimens should allow for life's indulgences and interruptions. Therefore, she caters her programs to women of all backgrounds, personally testing out her suggestions before recommending them to others.
Jamie's workout plans range from Weight Loss 101 Plan, which offers beginners guidance on diets and exercise, to the Busy Mom's Workout Plan with grocery lists and at-home fitness routines that accommodate hectic schedules. Though they achieve different aims, most of these plans include a nutritional and workout component, as well as scheduling tools that help keep participants on track. Resources on the Workoutplanz website also supplement training efforts. Clients can watch video tutorials on each exercise, read up on how to monitor their heart-rates, and even download a music playlist for an invigorating treadmill session.
