No fitness routine would be complete without proper recovery, so you can also pick up some tips from Dr.stretch, stretching specialists who teach a unique Core Balance Stretch. This unique technique was developed in Japan by a trainer for Major League Baseball team, the Boston Red Socks, and is said to allow practitioners to access their core muscles to increase flexibility, reduce pain and speed up muscle recovery – and you get to learn it at SITEX!
4. Bond with the whole family over games
These days gaming is usually associated with pro-gamers who play games as a career, but it doesn’t necessarily have to be as exclusive as it sounds.
The revamped Gaming Zone is geared towards millennial engagement and aims to create an immersive family experience so that everyone can enjoy gaming together.
Apart from e-sports activities and gaming opportunities, families can look forward to enjoying interactive sessions with their kids in both virtual and tactile gaming environments for the ultimate fun day out, as well as take the time to appreciate the work of talented digital artists across multiple mediums over the weekend.
Of course, gaming enthusiasts will have their fair share of excitement as well, including a celebration of classic games at RetroDNA’s Free Play Zone.
