Burn Off Holiday Calories with Lifetime Fun

burning bball calories.jpgIt started with nibbling on our favorite Halloween candy. Then came the turkey and pumpkin pie yesterday… next comes the homemade Christmas goodies… and it's all topped off with numerous holiday parties that have endless yummy temptations.  Yes, we are in the midst of that dreaded season of holiday weight gain.  We have all heard it time and time again... control your portions, eat healthy, and exercise regularly to keep those extra pounds from packing on. 

We can't help you with what you eat, but did you know that using some of your favorite Lifetime products is actually a great way to exercise and burn calories? That's right, between our Lifetime basketball hoops, kayaks, paddleboards, tetherball systems, soccer goals, and Driveway 3 Sports Sets, we can help you stay in shape and have fun at the same time.

You can find a lot of helpful calorie burning calculators online to tell you how many calories you burn (according to the weight you enter) during all sorts of activities… weightlifting to shopping and everything in between.  We recently used the Calorie Burn Calculator on HealthStatus.com as well as at CalorieLab.com to make a few comparisons to find out how our Lifetime products really stack up in the calorie burn arena.  It turns out that playing basketball actually burns more calories than most standard fitness activities!  It's true.  An average 190lb male playing full-court (5 vs 5) basketball burns 473 calories in 30 minutes… compared to 376 calories burned in moderate cycling or 302 when jogging!

Want some more good news?  Take a look at the calories burned during a few other activities using Lifetime products.

Calories a 190lb male will burn in 30 minutes:
473  5 vs 5 basketball 
354  half court basketball 
308  kayaking
302  casual soccer
194  casual basketball shooting 
193  badminton 
174  tetherball

We hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family yesterday.  Now, head outside with your favorite Lifetime sporting goods product to ward off those holiday pounds with some good ol' fashioned fun!

The Wonderful World of Sit-Inside Kayaks!
This kayak season we are stepping up our game! Exciting right? Most people have seen our many sit-on-top and fishing models, but this year we have gone in a whole new direction! I would like to introduce our newest member of the kayak family, the Lifetime Payette 116! This is our first sit-inside kayak design and it is sure to knock your water socks off! It comes in at 98 and is has the perfect mix of stability and speed.The sleek design makes it a bit faster than other kayaks that are similar in length without compromising the stability you are accustom to in a Lifetime Kayak! Think best of both worlds: speed of a longer kayak, stability of a shorter kayak. The built -n seat and seat back make it comfortable while the molded-in carry handles make for easy transport. Need to take some snacks with you on your paddle? The Paye...
