Although it is only the beginning of March, some of us are looking forward to April and those two great sporting events the Grand National and the Boat Race. Not being a horse lover (how profoundly unBritish) I will concentrate on the Boat Race. Yes THE Boat Race - because those of us of a certain age know that there is only one: the Oxford-Cambridge Boat Race. Like the Eton-Harrow cricket match, this event is something of an annual institution.
Boat racing is one of those events that puts a great strain not only on the biceps, triceps and shoulders, but also the wrists. Ignoring the wry smiles of some of you young gents out there, suffice it to say that rowing a boat four miles or more on the Thames creates a risk of Carpal-Tunnel Syndrome, and repetitive strain injury. People who spend a lot of time typing run similar risks. This is where magnetic bracelets enter the picture, because MPS has a wide range of sports wristbands - including silicone and the ionTopia range.
Sports bracelets are ideal for rowers, riders (remember that famous steeplechase mentioned above) and others who engage in sport. They're also good for people like me who spend a lot of time typing, although I can't, in all honesty, claim that typing is a sport!
These bracelets are funky and futuristic, cool and collectable. They contain strong rare earth (Neodymium) magnets: 1500 Gauss! They look nice and they feel nice. If you've already been thinking of buying one, now is the time to do so.
And if you're like, and have been considering taking up outdoor sport as soon as the weather gets warmer, now is the time to take the plunge. Buy one of these cool and funky bracelets. Here are some of the key facts to help you decide about the silicone Super-Prime™:
- The band is ultra-soft
- The silicone stands up to all weather conditions and cannot corrode or tarnish
- It is hypoallergenic - no metal comes into contact with your skin
- The magnets are embedded in the silicone
- No metal clasp to grapple with - just slip it over your wrist
- Extremely strong - will not snap when putting in on. NEVER!!!
Remember that Irving Berlin song that has the line about being a couple of sports? Well now's the time to live the dream.
