every beat of our heart

We've been into sports since we're little. Our parents are both sportive beings so we are too. At present, I (Sébastien) focus on Athletics every morning of Wednesdays and Saturdays with a 2 hour training. Every Wednesdays and Fridays I practice Taekwondo with my sister, these are the sports I regularly do out of school activities.

While I (Mayumi), stopped to do multi-sports every Wednesdays because I wanted to do other things. Actually, I would like to do pottery but instead I choose to learn guitar and I am liking it. Now, I am happy because I have encouraged my big brother therefore, Kuya wanted to learn how to play the guitar too. After going to my Orthophoniste session every Tuesday, then we go directly for an hour of guitar lessons. 

Apart from that, during weekends we do hiking, skating, biking, wall and rock climbing and Acrobranche with the whole family or organized to do group activities with friends. It's always fun ! 

We like sports and because our parents want us to give a head start on lifelong fitness. And to especially stop the risk of being overweight, as more and more children and adults are growing at an extremely frightening rate. We want to avoid to just stay at home and play video games the whole day. We only do that during bad weather. 

We also learn to adapt ourselves to people and different situations. We do several sports and allow ourselves to try diverse bracket of activities. We always benefit from exploring more options before choosing the one(s) we really like. The more we try different sports and activities we will discover by ourselves what sports we would like to persevere in the future.

Second timer

This is just A.W.E.S.O.M.E. !!!! Actually, I (Mimi) did this for the first time when I was 5 years old and Me (Basti) did this experience at the age of 7. It was indeed unforgettable, so we thought of renewing the experience for the second time. Snow doesn't only mean skiing, snowboarding, alpine skiing or racket snowshoe hiking and the likes ...there is also the tyrolean or zip line. This is the longest one in Europe, measuring 1870  meters long cable. The sliding starts from the Drouvet summit (2655m) descending to the Lac Long (2500m). Attached by a specially adapted tackle sliding in a horizontal position, head first at speeds of up to 140km per hour. The whole sliding experience lasts approximately 1 minute 20 seconds. It's indeed a very  nice Christmas gift from Papa and Maman :D ! We assure you,  we were not forced to do this but we ask ask for it voluntarily ;) !

sliding down

This is my first time to try skiing. My parents would like me to register to take ski lessons at ESF but unfortunately, they only accept kids from 3 years old and up. Well, that's life too little to try but not with Papa. After several attempts here is me :D !
