The World's Best. Yoga For Geezer Jocks. Pickleball Showdown. Trends.

 January 28, 2023

1.

We Are Trending. Sort Of.

We, you and me, Geezer Jocks everywhere, are on the radar.

The American College of Sports Medicine has us on the list of top trends for 2023.Way down at No. 4!

The fitness pros who were polled about what's big for the coming years listed wearable technology, strength training with free weights, body weight training, and THEN, Fitness Programs for Older Adults (Geezer Jocks).

Whatever. We rated higher than Outdoor Activities, Exercise for Weight Loss, among other things.

The big deal is gyms, athletic trainers, and health care companies understand we are a significant presence in health and fitness industry in the country.

2.

You Knew It Was Coming To This. Pickleball Stars/ESPN.

John McEnroe will bounce that pickleball racquet off the hard court in a fake bit  of pique, or stand there with arms wide at the injustice of the call and scream at the referee. He will straighten his knee brace while the crowd chuckles. This is what they came for, right?

It's not what he came for. McEnroe, Andre Agassi, Andy Roddick, and Michael Chang will play in a Pickleball Slam, but what they are coming for is something more substantial than laughs: a $1 million purse.

Here are the details.

3. The World's Best In Track. Kish Honored.

Geezer Jock Michael Kish is among those honored by World Masters Athletics as the best in the world for 2022. He was the only U.S. athlete selected.

Here is a link to the list and background of some of the people from around the world.

Here is the story on Mike, 71, and his strategy in becoming one of the best sprinters in the world.

4.

Yep. Yoga Works.

So go ahead and stand up and try and balance on one foot. It use to be easy for me. Now, it's not. It might be easy for you, but I bet it's not.

It's why this Geezer Jock is going to explore Yoga. There are all kinds of reasons to look at Yoga and I'm sure we have many readers who already know the joys. Restoring better balance is my reason. Imbalance is why I stopped getting on the roof this year to blow leaves out of the gutter.

Yoga? Is it worth the time? Read this gift article.

5. One Million Meters In The Pool. Wow!

This is ambitious. A picture tells a thousand (million) stories.
