Small Guy. Big Talent.
Stand aside Kobe Bryant, there's a new basketball star on the scene!
At just two years of age, and standing a little under one-metre tall, young Titus can pull off the kind of shots that take fully grown players years of practice to master. And he makes it look easy!
Titus's incredible talent was noticed by his dad when, at just 15 months of age, the toddler began dropping basketballs into his siblings' toy basketball set. Since then, Titus and his family started performing trick shots together; developing a fun, family routine that has turned them into an international sensation.
And Titus's health advice for up-and-coming basketball prodigies?
Eat your apples!
One flipping amazing guy.
Like a lot of people, Damian runs to keep fit. But unlike a lot of people, his runs involve back- flipping over walls, cartwheeling through parks and performing daredevil leaps off car parks. This is because Damian is a parkour enthusiast: a pastime that involves sprinting through urban environments and using acrobatics to get past obstacles.
Damian got into parkour because it enabled him to practice gymnastics – which he’s been doing since he was seven-years-old – in the fresh air of the outdoors. And we’re sure everyone in his neighborhood’s glad he did, because it’s a spectacle to behold.
When he’s not somersaulting over skip bins and cars, Damian relaxes by playing football and other sports.
So I guess we don’t need to mention his motto in life is ’keep moving’.
Note: Damian’s moves are the result of years of training and practice and should not be attempted.
Meet Australia's 'first lady' of yoga.
When Bette took up yoga 60 years ago, the eastern art was practically unheard of in Australia. As one of its pioneers, Bette has seen yoga develop into the widely accepted exercise it is today – delivering physical and mental health benefits to thousands of practitioners.
Bette discovered yoga in a rather unusual way. After working long shifts at her family business, she found the solution to muscle fatigue was to lean against the wall…then slowly turn herself upside down! While many of us would have opted for a relaxing bath, Bette expanded her yoga routines and make them part of her everyday life.
Bette attributes her fantastic health to regular exercise, a vegetarian diet and keeping busy.
Or as Bette puts it: 'I've never had any downtime, and I'm not going to start now.'
This mum's got the moves.
Rachael's daily routine is similar to lots of other young mums: there's washing to hang out, meals to cook, dishes to wash….oh, and two hours of intense hula hooping to fit in.
As the child of a gymnastics coach, Rachael was raised in a fit and active household where exercise was fun and a part of everyday life. However it wasn't until a few years ago, when a friend handed her a hula hoop at a party, that Rachael discovered her real passion. Now this hula hooping mum regularly dances across her kitchen floor – sometimes with son, Marcus, in tow – performing moves that can send viewers into a spin.
Twirling things around seems to be a family hobby, as Rachael's husband was once a keen practitioner of Poi – the art of spinning fireballs on the end of chains.
(We think Rachael's hula hooping sounds a little safer).
Check out some high flyers.
‘Swisstricks' is a team of high-kicking, high-flying Swiss athletes who use breathtaking locations across the world as the backdrop to their routines. Describing their moves as ‘martial arts acrobatics', the team launches themselves through the air with a flurry of kicks and spins.
Micha says his group's style was inspired by taekwondo and kung fu, which has been captured using stunning cinematography to catapult Swisstricks onto the world stage.
And how does Micha like to spend his spare time when he comes back down to earth?
By checking out great movies on DVD or at the cinema.
(Karate flicks, we're guessing).
