Have you seen our new favorite commercial from ESPN? It’s for Monday Night Football (First game is 9/10/12 on ESPN fellas!) and ESPN did a great job, especially when Rob Gronkowski of the Patriots is seen in a pair of Teeter Hang Ups Gravity Boots XL. Are those chicken wings?
With football season practically upon us, now is also a good time to remind everyone that spending your Saturdays and Sundays for hours on end, on the couch watching college and pro football wreck havoc on your back sooner or later. When it does, we’re here for you – but we do not suggest eating chicken wings or consuming any other food or beverage while inverted.
While Christmas is a time of giving, sharing joy and letting those in our life know how much we appreciate them – the day after Christmas can often be a tribute to just how much waste we acquire, with mounds of empty boxes, tissue paper, ribbon and shredded holiday wrapping. Check out these green holiday gift wrapping ideas to help reduce waste and the dent in your pocketbook from buying overpriced wrapping paper and ribbons.
1. Brown Paper Bags
If you have stash of brown paper bags in your house, you can easily cut them apart and use the insides of them as classic wrapping paper. For an added festive touch – and a fun craft project – have the kids decorate the paper using colored markers or glitter.
2. Gift Bags
Gift bags are reusable (and the tissue paper often is as well!), and especially easy for the last-minute gift wrapper who has a mountain of gifts to wrap on Christmas Eve. Even better, you can use fabric remnants (often on sale at your local fabric or craft store) to create cloth wrapping or gift bags that are beautiful, durable and reusable.
3. Give Services
If you really want to reduce waste, think about getting your loved one the gift of a service instead of a physical present. A cooking class, a massage, concert tickets or a gift certificate to their favorite restaurant can be a wonderful experience they will treasure… and you won’t have to worry about adding clutter to their home or wrapping a bulky gift.
4. Hide Presents
If you have young children, consider pre-assembling their gifts and hiding them around the house. Take them on a gift treasure hunt using clues to help them locate their gifts. You don’t have to festoon the gifts with bows and ribbons to be on display under a tree, and you can downgrade your wrapping options, since the fun will be in the hunt for the gift rather than in ripping off paper.
5. Look around the House
Wrapping gifts in old newspaper (comic strips are fun) is always a clever and colorful choice. Old city maps are a great option for friends with wanderlust. Strips of butcher block paper can come in handy as well – they are made without chemicals or dyes that harm the environment (unlike many kinds of wrapping paper), and you can decorate butcher block paper to make it seasonal and personal. Look around your home for other creative ways to wrap your gifts – I’ll bet you will come up with a few novel ideas of your own!

Almost anyone familiar with inversion can tell you that using a Teeter Hang Ups can help with back pain, but just how does inversion work? When in doubt, remember “The Five R’s” of inversion: Reduce, Rehydrate, Relax, Realign, Recover.
Reduce Back Pain: Inversion helps to elongate the spine by increasing intervertebral separation and opening the passageway for the nerve roots to temporarily relieve pressure in your back.
Rehydrate Intervertebral Discs: Inversion increases disc space and reduces the load on your discs, allowing them to hydrate for expedited repair. Regularly using your Teeter helps increase fluid retention within the discs, which act as shock absorbers as you move your body, and helps increase flexibility.
Relax Muscles: Inverting to as little as 25 degrees for just a few minutes can help you relax and elongate your muscles. In fact, one study showed that muscle tension (measured by EMG activity) declined over 35% within ten seconds of inversion!
Realignment of the Spine and Joints: In order to decompress, the spine needs a traction force of at least 60% of your body weight, roughly equivalent to inverting at an angle of 60 degrees on an inversion table. This type of progressive decompression naturally re-aligns the weight-bearing skeleton, promoting good posture and eliminating the minor misalignment that naturally occur with activity and upright movement.
Recover from Activity: Inversion can stimulate circulation and lymph movement, helping to eliminate waste from your muscles and reduce post-workout soreness. A dose of decompression can help to reverse the damage of high-impact activities and improve flexibility, which is a vital component to a well-rounded workout.
PUYALLUP, Wash., Nov. 23, 2012 – A rare few holiday gifts can benefit and truly be enjoyed by every member of the family. Even more exceptional is a gift that is multi-dimensional and can be used year-around. Traditionally given to those who suffer from back pain and sciatica, a Teeter Hang Ups Inversion Table offers more than just pain relief. This stress-relieving, functional fitness tool is popular with practically all age groups and fitness levels.
A gift for Dad: Does your dad avoid certain activities because his back is tired, tight or leaving him in pain? Just 3-5 minutes on the Teeter in the morning can help him energize and prepare his back for a hard day at work (did you know that sitting behind a desk is 2.5 times harder on your back than standing?). Another short inversion session before bed can help reverse daily compression fatigue and prepare the body for a more relaxed night of sleep. Routine stretching on his Teeter can help keep Dad on his feet and off the sidelines.
A gift for Mom: Does your mom yearn for some “me time” to ease the stress of the day or perhaps a way to fit in a fun and unique stretching and toning workout? With some low lighting and soothing music, Mom can create her very own spa environment while inverting with her Teeter – simply recline and relax to decompress, ease muscle tension, and stimulate circulation. Studies show that tension is relieved in as little as 10 seconds while inverted! And for even greater benefits, she can incorporate a little inverted stretching and exercise to elongate and tone muscles.
A gift for Grandparents: Quite possibly the two most destructive forces to one’s spine is gravity and age. Every day, the force of gravity squeezes vital moisture and nutrients out of the sponge-like disc tissue, decreasing disc height. While most compression is reversed overnight, the cumulative effect over a lifetime averages 1 – 2? in height loss, resulting in lost mobility and flexibility. Combine this effect with weakened core muscles, and you have a formula for increased pain and risk of back injury. With routine inversion on a Teeter, even at a mild 30-45 degrees, Grandma and Grandpa can work on keeping those discs fat and happy, improve flexibility and keep doing the activities they love.
