Fitness and Christmas

These are two diametrically opposed words or have at least become so in our time.  Who comes out of the Christmas period weighing the same as they went in? Not many that is for sure.

Though we love sports and inturn staying fit, sometimes you just have to embrace the time and party with the rest. That doesn’t mean that other games are off the table such as board games, singstar nights (be careful of that drunk uncle) and eSports.

What is that you ask? eSports…never heard of it. Don’t worry, you are not alone. It is only something that the OPD team was made aware about recently at the Tag des Sport and then again this week.

Of course, even RedBull is in on it, and there is big buck in it too.

Just look at this….

Whatever your sport, make sure you have fun this holiday season and relax with family and friends.

Leave the stress behind and Happy holidays from the OPD team
