First Aid Training Classes: Why You Should Look Into This

skiing-injuriesWhile most of us sure love sports, be it skiing, snowboarding, windsurfing and whatever else will tickle your fancy, there is always that remaining (yet fortunately rather low) risk of injuries.

If you’re like me and cant wait till it’s winter time to get on your skis it’s likely you will have the one or the other story to tell where you may possibly have strained your ankles, bumped into another skier or possibly had a more serious injuries such as a broken leg which is not exactly rare for those who love winter sport.

It is because of that that you might want to look into learning first aid. This is not only something which may benefit yourself at one point but can be a smart thing to do because it’s really helpful for others as well. Fact is that most skiing resorts in many of the fantastic locations for various sports can be located rather remotely.

What does means is that if an injury happens that it’ll always take some time until competent medical help will be on the scene. However, if there are people around who know about first aid techniques this can greatly help providing assistance to the injured to avoid further complications until a doctor will be around.

First aid training classes are especially helpful for schools, clubs and sports teams since this shared knowledge about effective first aid will directly benefit anyone. If you love the more riskier types of sports it is always better to be prepared for the unexpected and unforeseen.

A Good Gym in East London

If you’re looking for a good gym in East London where you not only get the “standard” treatment like in many other, rather average gyms I can highly recommend that you check out “London Fields” at Railway Arch 379 Mentmore Terrace, Hackney E8 3PH.

london-fields-booty-campWhat I like about them is that they offer “General Classes” that are very affordably priced with £5 “pay as you go”.

But they also have a £20 Class Pass that’s good for 15 (!) classes per week…so you will definitely get your money’s worth with such a pass!

I personally really prefer those gyms like the London Fields where they have good classes for Yoga, Martial Arts and so forth. In fact, I think going to fitness classes makes a lot more sense than your standard “membership”!

So check London Fields out if you’re looking for Yoga in London fields or any other great fitness classes! Highly recommended!

Especially the southern part of Germany, in particular Bavaria has many great slopes in the German alps. If you happen to be in year Munich, most winter sport resorts are not further away then an hour drive.

Right now however, they weather forecast for the holiday season in Germany predicts unseasonably warm weather. In fact, temperatures are so unusually high for winter right now that many winter sports locations cannot even use a snow cannon.

Melbourne Cup: Horse Racing Industry Rejects Cruelty Claims

Following the recent death of two horses at the Melbourne Cup, the horse racing industry is rejecting claims of cruelty.

Jamie Lovett, co-owner of Melbourne Cup winner Protectionist told the press that those who talk about animal cruelty at the races do not know about how the horses are really treated.

“I wish these guys would go to the track at five o’clock in the morning and see how these people care for their horses. There would be no argument if you could see.” he said to the press.

Last Tuesday, the race’s favorite Admire Rakti h became distressed and died of heart failure in its stall shorty after the race. Another horse, Araldo broke a rear leg on a fence and had to be put down by vets.

Spokesperson for The Coalition for the Protection of Racehorses, Ward Young wants a ban on the use of whips in racing as well as a ban on racing of two-year-old horses. He said: “We believe that pushing horses beyond their physical limits through use of the whip, and racing horses while underdeveloped at two years of age are significant factors as to why horses break down on the racetrack.” .
