Sustainability is one of the most important aspects of any new architectural design and in recent years we’ve seen this spread into the world of sports stadiums. Traditionally, the concept behind sports stadiums has been to create a colosseum-like structure which adds theatre and creates an incredible atmosphere with little prior thought ever given to sustainability. Recently, things have begun to change and we’re now seeing more and more architects giving sustainability the attention it deserves when designing new sports stadiums...

This is a short article that just briefly touches on the idea of serving healthy options at concession stands. In todays society health and fitness are becoing more popular, and the idea of offering health options to fans is a great way to envolve both the sporting event atmosphere and staying healthy.

Adam Odell's curator insight, January 24, 11:41 PM

Going to stadium events shouldnt mean you have to eat junk food. Healthy food should be an option.

Kyle Seeley's curator insight, April 24, 10:24 AM

Is health good at concessions going to be a trend?

Stand-Up Desks Gaining Favor in the Workplace

Stand-Up Desks Gaining Favor in the Workplace | Sports Facility Management | Scoop.it
As more research finds health hazards in sitting for prolonged periods, more manufacturers are offering desks that let workers stand, or even walk, while toiling at the keyboard.

 

THE health studies that conclude that people should sit less, and get up and move around more, have always struck me as fitting into the “well, duh” category.

 

But a closer look at the accumulating research on sitting reveals something more intriguing, and disturbing: the health hazards of sitting for long stretches are significant even for people who are quite active when they’re not sitting down. That point was reiterated recently in two studies, published in The British Journal of Sports Medicine and in Diabetologia, a journal of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes.

 

Suppose you stick to a five-times-a-week gym regimen, as I do, and have put in a lifetime of hard cardio exercise, and have a resting heart rate that’s a significant fraction below the norm. That doesn’t inoculate you, apparently, from the perils of sitting.
