Outdoor home theater = healthy summer fun

OM_Summer-Fun

Do you want to take your entertainment with you while soaking up the sun on your deck, patio or poolside? Want to give your backyard some Fixer Upper love? OmniMount has a wide array of fixed, tilt, full motion and interactive TV mounts to support all-weather televisions. They’re a great option, offering the ultimate in both style and performance.

Many of us have been glued to our television screens this summer, watching exciting sports events, such as Euro 2016, Wimbledon and the Olympic Games. Not to mention binge-watching the new seasons of on-demand series! Outdoor TVs allow us to enjoy shows and movies in the fresh air and sunlight whenever we can.

For those concerned about the dangers of too much sitting, there’s a bonus opportunity here: while the weather is warm and the days are still long, boost your family’s fitness with these outdoor activities and watch the calorie burn start to add up:

Dance party = cut the rug for 11 minutes to burn up 56 calories.

De-stress with yoga = lightly stretching for 17 minutes burns 50 calories.

Play catch with the kids = toss the ball for 18 minutes and burn 54 calories.

Mow the lawn = give the grass a trim for 8 minutes and torch 52 calories.

Beautify the garden = weed flowerbeds (or planters) for 10 minutes to burn 59 calories. (Beautiful blooms are a bonus.)

Play with your pet = Fido loves fetch, plus 15 minutes can burn 50 calories for you.

Pretend you’re Bobby Flay = fire up the grill (indoors or out) for 25 minutes and use up 57 calories.

The most important thing is to find a calorie-burning activity that you enjoy. The more you enjoy it, the easier it will be to fit it into your busy lifestyle, and keep up with your favorite shows.
