A Training Plan To Be A Champion

The practice of sport should be a passion: in order to master it you really have to enjoy it. However, it doesn’t matter the type of athlete you are, there may come a time in which you will evolve from an amateur into a professional sportsman.Which is the best training plan  to make the leap to the elite?

Look for the help of trainers’ academies

The difference between normal practice and professional training is specialization, and it consists of techniques, discipline, programs that only professional sport can offer. So if you want to be a football star, you should go start by looking for football teams, schools etc. and do not stay in the simple continuous practice because this will not help you with some specific techniques or strategies.

This applies to any discipline: if you really want to become a professional tennis player, you may be interested in enrolling tennis programs in the Rafa Nadal Academy, and the same with any sport..

Take it seriously and take time to practice 

The difference between amateur practice and professional practice is the same as that between a hobby and a job: in the first case, we devote the hours that we want and when we want, just because we feel like it. The latter is something we should take seriously: with a rigorous training where we devote daily hours which allow us to improve every day and observe positive results.

If time does not allow us to combine studies with sports, there are academies and high performance centers where a full curriculum (which we should never abandon) is performed.

You just need to set your goals 

As we indicated, the sport practice must be vocational. You cannot be the best just because you are required to do it, and even less if we talk about being a professional. Therefore, you have to decide for yourself the goals. Do you want to be just good and competitive? Do you want to make the leap to the elite and participate in tournaments ? Do you want to devote to it and become professional ? Do you want to participate in the Olympics Games?

Decide your goals and go beyond them. According to these goals you can choose the best training program for you.

Have a plan 

Whether alone (although not recommended) or with help of professionals, you need to seta training plan, supervised by a professional, and follow it.

Improvements in sport are not achieved just through physical exercise or bodybuilding. According to the sport we practice, we sharpen some skills like agility or precision, but without forgetting strength, dexterity, coordination etc. They are also very important.

Therefore, a professional can design a suitable program for you to focus on the most necessary abilities for practicing your sport but without forgetting or the rest of skills. That is, a football player, even if he just needs his legs to run and kick the ball, must also train other skills. And it is the same for a tennis player, who should not focus only on his or her arms but need to keep fit in general.

Whereto Enjoy Electronic Music In Lisboa

Lisbon is a wonderful city, capable to surprise the visitor in every corner with an air of decadence that becomes into its best icon.  But Lisbon is also modern and cosmopolitan and lately has definitely become a city of high contrasts. It makes this city interesting enough to be visited several times in life or even to settle down in here:

Equally surprising is wandering around Lisbon, experiencing its night life, which is far from the fado culture that comes to your mind. Lisbon has recently been revealed as a city with a very interesting nightlife and a dynamic day life too. In this sense,electronic music is the referent, thanks to proposals such as the electronic festival in Lisbon Brunch electronik or nightclubs as Lux, owned by Oscar nominee John Malkovich.

Alto neighborhood: King of the Night

If we want to enjoy the best clubbing, our place is definitely the picturesque Altoneighborhood. This is a bohemian and eclectic districtwhichreaches its climax afterthe sunset.

If during the day it stands out for its quiet atmosphere, at nightit transforms into the favorite area of nightlife lovers:full of bars which open at 00.00 and clubs hosting the best local DJ’s.

Brunch Electronik

To all these pleasures already mentioned, Lisbon adds the ability to gather electronic music lovers in a very popular event, where even children have place (it is totally family friendly). The Brunch Electronik is celebrated from noon until near midnight in such a picturesque place as theTapada da AjudaPark. This event is joined by the first-row namesof world electronic music such as Simian Mobile Disco, Tiga, Mind Against and a long list of many important DJ’s.

Port and Tagus: the cool zone

We can open the night plan in the AltoNeighborhood or if the underground environment isnot comfortable for us, we can try around the Tagus River, whichis one of the most exclusive and prestigious areas of the citywhere to enjoy good atmosphere with electronic music in the background.

John Malkovich has invigorated the area by opening his club, Lux, and it is enough demand for the best DJ’s to decide to hold sessions in this cozy Lisbon corner. But thisis not the only offer in the zone, whichis certainly a very interesting area where we can move at night.

After hours in Lisbon

If we are one of those who enjoy a nightlife marathon, the Kremlin club (considered bymany people the Pachá of Lisbon) offers an original atmosphere, varied and interesting until late at night and all surrounded by history.

The local suffered a closure in 2011 but this year has become a leader in the electronic music world. If we want a quieter choice but with no time limits, the Paradise Garage is our place, with live performances and sessions of “ringside”.

If Madrid has the well-knownIFEMA, Barcelona is proud of its Fira. This is a powerful tool to understand and make ourselves known through its fairs and congresses onbusiness.

All of them are potential clients or potential business partners.

Move around the main centers and business areas

Regarding logistics (more space, better access, lower costs, etc.), you may be interested in establishingyour headquarters in one of the excellent industrial parks ofthe city of Barcelona and its surroundings (L’Hospitalet, Masnou, MontcadaiReixac etc.) .However, it is important  not to lose sight of what is going on in the main centers and business areas of the city.

Barcelona has more than onefinancial and administrative district where the exhibitions can be held. Districts such as the innovative 22 @, where we find institutions like Barcelona Activa,whichcan help you in all matters relating to the constitution of your company in Barcelona or the area adjacent to Plaza de Europa in L’Hospitalet de Llobregat, having the Firajust a few meters away. Theseare the key placeswhere you can find allies, partners or simply study the competition. In short,spotswhere youshould be present if not full time, at least, often.

Do not miss any event

In addition to the rich offer at fairs and congresses, Barcelona is widely active in terms of events, conferences, lectures etc. where, in addition to learning about the business environment, we can make networking and get ideas to develop and implement our business continuously.

Do not stop analyzingyour target

Barcelona is very heterogeneous in public, so do not miss the opportunity to turn this city into your field of study and do not stop to analyze the behavior of your potential customers to adequateyour business.
