Tightroping is so 20th century! Slacklining has been popular for quite a few years, but combining the slackline with a bit of elastic makes for extreme slacklining. Imagine being able to jump up and down on a trampoline-like slackline, doing awesome tricks, flips, and stunts! No more boring walking…

Bored of the same old, same old jog day after day? Get yourself a pair of pogo shoes and take your leaps and bounds to the next level. You'll feel like the Hulk or Superman as you leap meters into the air, and it will be one heck of a way to take the "boring" out of your daily workout.

Whoever told you that the Jetpack wasn't a realistic invention absolutely lied to you! Water jetpacks (hydrojet packs) have been around for a couple of years, and you can rent them out to take a spin over open water. You may not be able to fly like in science fiction, but it's still absolutely awesome to hover a few meters over the water surface with a bad-ass jetpack strapped to your back!

Imagine playing soccer, but instead of being able to run WITHOUT hitting people, your goal is to slam into them as hard as possible! Everyone is wearing bubble suits to protect themselves from injury, and the sport is a wondrous mix of soccer and tackle football with almost no chance of getting seriously hurt.

If you've ever hated not being good enough to play soccer with your friends, this is the game for you!

Fitness has come hard for Andy; he's had to work for it. But, his trials have led him to becoming a martial artist, a NFPT-certified fitness trainer, and a man passionate about exercise and healthy living. That’s why he’s our resident fitness expert.

His favorite food is lettuce-leaf steak tacos – though he’ll admit to a love of hot wings if you leverage the right pressure.

We know him as the guy who understands British humor and wishes everyone was as passionate about life as he is. His previous forays into the worlds of international business and education have left him wildly optimistic. And, if that wasn’t enough, he also writes comic books. Can you say renaissance?
