How I Used the Lifetime Space Planner to Plan Bear's Backyard

As you can see in my last post, Lifetime recently partnered with the Utah Jazz to sponsor Bear's Backyard--a play area for families. It has become a popular hangout for fans! I had the opportunity to go to a game the other night against the Atlanta Hawks. It was one of the first times coming back since I collaborated with the Lifetime Store to plan the area in October. It turns out, seeing kids having fun on the Lifetime playgrounds and Double Shots were one of the few happy sights that night... our beloved Jazz were 3-pointed to death  by those pesky Hawks, resulting in a score of 110-87. As you can see in this photo, the faces of the people behind us are a little nervous. Fans left still hopeful though. I think we know that the Jazz will get back on their winning streak soon! IMG_0114.gif

When putting together the plan for Bear's Backyard, we were faced with a challenge-- how many fun Lifetime products can you use to create the ultimate play area? Needless to say, I was up to the challenge. So, the first thing we did was meet, and determine which products we needed to show. Then the next thing I did was click over to the www.lifetime.com to use the free Lifetime Space Planner software. With top-view icons of each of our products, already scaled to exact size, it was easy and fun to design the area!  My only drawback was that the Ace Flyer and Helicopter Teeter- Totters have not yet been loaded into the planner... though it did give me a good to-do item for the future. In the image shown here, I had to use default exercise equipment scaled to the size of both these items!

Using the planner was easy to do. I drew out the floor plan, started dragging and and dropping products, and using the measurement tool to determine whether or not they were too close to eachother, I drug them around to fit as many as possible! I got a little ambitious I think, as the Lifetime Store Regional Manager had to remove a few items to increase safety when he actually loaded it with products. blog-image.gif

The next time you need to plan a space with some Lifetime products, I would highly recommend the Lifetime Space Planner! It's free, easy to use, and nothing to download!  There are useful icons for most Lifetime products and all sorts of other indoor and outdoor items-- trees, plants, furniture, landscaping items, and more!  So if you haven't already, click on over to our space planner and check it out! One tip before I go-- one thing I learned about arranging a play area. If you are looking to buy a Lifetime Playground (or already own one), you should know that our slides are fast! Be sure to allow 4'-6' of space in front of the slide. The fast slide is lots of fun for kids!  I remember in one of the local commercials we shot for the Lifetime Store, the kids started going down it as "cannon balls". They laughed like it was the funniest thing in the world!

New Patio Furniture on BuyLifetime!
My best friend recently replaced all her wicker patio furniture with Lifetime patio furnitureher wicker chairs and table had rotted from sun exposure in less than two years! As she said, I like the wicker look, but Im not made out of money. These tables and chairs will last forever. Maybe they wont last forever, but they should last a good deal longer, and I agree with her that they look a lot better. Her wicker furniture was faded and ratty in the first summer, even before it fell apart. The clean, smooth finish on her new Lifetime patio furniture will last much longer. I know, because Ive been using Lifetime tables and chairs as patio furniture for ages. Long before I came to work for Lifetime, we had a Lifetime picnic table on our deck and Lifetime folding chairs sitting in the shade under our walnut tree. Apparently, Im...
Park It in the Garage
Small gatherings of family and friends are not uncommon at our home. My wife really likes to entertain guests. However, inviting about 100 of our closest relatives during the heat of the day was a little bit of a stretch for our home, so I came up with a solution . . . overflow seating in the garage! Heres what happened: A few weeks ago, we decided to celebrate the birth of our 2 month old baby girl. We agreed to hold a casual party to celebrate this occasion with a few of our closest relatives. After the invite list ballooned to around 100 people, I realized my wifes definition of a few was much different than mine. It wasnt long before I realized the seating capacity of our home would not accommodate her expanding invite list.Due to time constraints, the only time the party could be held was in the middle of the afternoon....
A 50 Year Achievement
The Mercedes-Benz dealership in Salt Lake City celebrated its fifty year anniversary earlier this month. My wife, Jenny was asked to assist with this event. The celebration was an important event for not only the local dealership, but to Mercedes-Benz as well.In the automobile business it is uncommon for one dealership with the original franchise owner to stay in business with the same car franchise for over fifty years. The award presentation featured a beautifully designed trophy, sculpted with metal in the form of a classic Mercedes-Benz automobile. After the presentation, a lunch was served for those in attendance. Jenny couldnt help but notice that the tables and chairs that were set up for the event were of course made by Lifetime. They used Lifetime 6 foot banquet tables covered with white linens and floral arrangeme...
