I wanted to bring holistic knowledge to the athletes here. They are already very good and with a little guidance can really show up big time at the world stage. Also, there are many individuals who want to take up fitness as a career but are unable to because of stigma, lack of knowledge and similar other factors.

We were already associated with celebrity clients over the years and it was just eventual that we brought this knowledge to the common people here in India.”

Dan Skuta, Bengals Linebacker from 2009 to 2012, Shares Football Training Tips for Beginners

Dan Skuta, Bengals linebacker for the first four years of his NFL career, appreciates the challenges and rewards available to those who play football at the professional level.

He also knows, however, how hard it often is for young players to get their foot in the door—including the level of training and commitment it often takes to transition from one level of the sport to the next.

Below, Dan Skuta, a one-time Bengals linebacker, shares what he believes to be some of the basics of beginners’ football training—items aspiring young talents should focus on as they work to make an impact on the field and throughout their career.

Go basic and lift heavy in the weight room.

Any effective football training program, particularly at the high school level, includes a heavy lifting regimen. But the best results, it’s often best to go with the simplest formula available: Basic and heavy. Though sets and reps vary, focusing on big lifts (press, bench, incline, squat, etc.) is generally best for improving the strength you’ll need to be effective on the gridiron.

Pick a plan and stick with it.

As Dan Skuta, former Bengals linebacker knows well, those new to football often fall into the trap of alternating plans every other week, an inconsistency that doesn’t do anybody much good. Whether it’s technique on the field, exercises at practice or lifting in the weight room, it’s usually best to stick with the same approach throughout the course of training.

Work hard regardless of the program.

You may find out in the middle of your program that you picked a bad one. It happens. But it’s important to note that full-blown effort on a bad program always trumps going halfway on a good one. No matter the course you’ve taken, training to play on the gridiron is and should be hard work. Success isn’t possible without it.

A nine-year pro, Dan Skuta, former Bengals star, enjoys the opportunity to see promising young talents realize their full potential.

Seasoned Investor Dan Skuta Offers Tips for Identifying a Great Business Opportunity

Dan Skuta began investing in businesses just after retiring from the NFL—a playing career that spanned more than nine seasons.

Now, Dan Skuta is an accomplished business investor with numerous successes under his belt, and he looks to put that experience to work to help others determine not only how to properly identify potentially profitable investments, but also how best to know which ideas are best suited to their unique situation, talents and goals.
Essential questions to ask when evaluating an idea include:

Does it meet a need?

No matter the size of scope of the prospective investment, it’s important to first know if the product or service, i.e., “the idea,” fulfills a present or future need. As Dan Skuta knows, it’s crucial to do a little research into how the product or service solves a particular problem for consumers, and to know if a target audience actually exists for the idea in question.

Does it work in the present location?

Once you know the opportunity meets a need, you should then look into how much demand, if any, exists throughout its surrounding area. For example: a trendy new restaurant could present an innovative dining option not found anywhere else, but without demand for that option in the local economic environment, it will probably fall flat quickly.

Do you have the resources needed to see your investment succeed?

Savvy business investors like Dan Skuta typically devote time to evaluate not only the investment’s promise, but also how prepared they are to operate and/or fund the idea to ensure its eventual success. Knowing your resources and level of commitment beforehand is key to avoiding a potential disaster down the road.

Is the timing right?

Like it or not, timing is everything when it comes to assessing a prospective investment opportunity. Make sure the timing for the location, timing in the marketplace and your own personal timing are lined up before making a serious financial commitment.

As Dan Skuta knows, it also doesn’t hurt to consult with others who have owned or invested in similar opportunities. Doing so can provide invaluable insight hard to find anywhere else.


New Delhi, 25th June 2019: In 2018, adidas created a global movement with Run for the Oceans, uniting nearly one million runners from around the world to help spread awareness and transform ocean plastic pollution into high-performance sportswear, raising $1 million to educate the youth on the problem of marine plastic pollution with Parley for the Oceans. The money raised helped educate and empower 100,000 youth and their families who are living in coastal areas affected by plastic pollution to take action as part of the Parley Ocean School Program. The partnership saw five million pairs of shoes created using recycled ocean plastic paving way for a higher goal this year.
Continuing the journey of converting THREAT INTO THREAD and giving wings to an aspirational aim of producing a landmark 11 million pairs of shoes from up-cycled marine plastic waste, adidas elevated the pace of change in 2019 by taking the Run for the Oceans movement to a monumental scale. The campaign this year united large number of runners across several locations in the country; the movement witnessed an overall participation of 87,490individuals running on the Runtastic app, clocking a total of 175061 kms and clearing over 238 tonnes of plastic waste as part of the beach clean-up drives, plogging efforts in Delhi and boats running in mangroves. The run this year helped adidas raise an amount of USD 1.5 Million and the total money will be contributed to Parley Ocean School.
Inspiring the larger universe to join the movement, adidas brought together its community of adidas Runners, brand ambassadors, influencers, employees, store partners, store staff, and even consumers to make a difference and contribute to by participating in on-ground events and digital runs. The global impact of the movement has seen more than 2.2 million participants lace up for the oceans and running more than 12.5 million kms. The brand did not just double the participation number from 924k in 2018 to 2.2 million this year, but also garnered exceedingly remarkable numbers and broke the km record from 12.4M km to 12.5M km, within only 8 days of running as compared to 31 days last year.
The brand is ambitiously working towards its 2024 goal of eliminating the use of virgin polyester from all its products and the entire supply chain.

Dear Cricket, Be A Sport, Consume Less Water Says Sanjay Pandey

Sanjay Pandey, the activist who first flagged off the ‘Right To Water Act’ issue in India has now focused his energies to prevent wastage of water in maintenance of cricket fields. And further plans to extend the same to other sports like hockey and football, where a lot of water is wasted in maintenance of fields.

For instance, he said around 3,000 liters is used daily to maintain a normal cricket ground and some cricket bodies he alleged reportedly use purified RO-treated water for ground maintenance.

There are at least four to five large sports ground in each of the dozen main cities in the state which covers huge area. In 2019, around 29,000 villages all over the state has been hit by drought.

Pandey said as per reliable estimates, around 40,000 liters water per month are required for regular cricket ground maintenance, so the total quantity of water used by all grounds for all field sports in the country would be phenomenal.

The Board of Cricket Control of India (BCCI) had informed the Bombay High Court some time ago that nearly 6,000,000 liters of water was needed for maintaining the three pitches in Mumbai, Pune and Nagpur during the Indian Premier League matches.

Moreover, it had said that around 60,000 liters of water was required per day for the ground maintenance during the IPL series, held annually.

Pandey urged the Mumbai Cricket Association and other field sports bodies to use either recycled water or the water collected through rainwater harvesting systems to reduce the burden on the city water resources.

Similarly, he said other field sports like hockey, football and golf courses, which also require huge amounts of water both on the field and for consumption for the run-off area around the field of play, running into lakhs of litres daily, should switch over to recycled or harvested water resources.

In this connection, he pointed out that the Rabobank Arena in California, the Lords in UK and Melbourne Cricket Ground in Australia use recycled water for ground maintenance.

Pandey has written a letter to Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and will communicate with all cricketing bodies in the country to draw their attention to the serious issue of water wastage in times of crises.

Sanjay Pandey’s extensive tours across villages of Maharashtra and the other parts of the country was a moving experience for him and he decided to initiate every possible short term measure to provide relief and also explore long term solutions to nip the problem in the bud. His efforts took concrete shape in the form of ‘ MUMBAI WATER WARRIORS’, an organization he recently formed to spread awareness about water conservation and consumption. The organization further plans to regularly transport the water saved in cities like Mumbai to drought affected villages of Maharashtra. Education and creating awareness is the very backbone of the strategy formulated at Mumbai Water Warriors.

His video on the said issue titled “Ek Bucket Pani Se Kya Ho Sakta Hai” has been well received by residents of Housing Societies and corporate organizations alike. In this interesting video, Sanjay Pandey effectively explains how if every citizen manages to save at least one bucket of water every day, it could translate to major relief for rural, drought affected areas. The month long campaign by Mumbai Water Warriors headed by Sanjay Pandey also proposes to spread the message across all age groups starting from children to senior citizens and engage one and all through exciting online competitions and off line events.

Water is an integral part of human existence and we truly hope the efforts of all concerned make a tangible difference on the ground in ensuring water conservation and optimum utilization.Sanjay Pandey has been conducting all his social activities through a NGO called Nanaji Deshmukh Prathisthan which is now a movement by itself.
