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!

Happy Blogging Birthday!
I cant believe its been one year already since I wrote my first blog for Lifetime365.com. I have to admit, back when the folks at Lifetime first asked me if I was interested in blogging, I was a bit hesitant. Dont get me wrong, I was super excited they asked me since I am a former Lifetime employee and I LOVE writing. It was a perfect fit. But, I wasnt quite sure how I would ever come up with enough topics about Lifetime products from my daily life to blog one to two times a week. Well, it turns out that when you really like something, its pretty easy to talk (er, blog) about it non-stop! Kind of like how people can go on and on and on about their kids. :) Until I started this little project, I honestly never realized how many times and ways I use Lifetime products almost every day. And, as youve probably noticed, I only use...
