The top 3 trendy sports for gentlemen

Sport is always the endless passion of men. But which sports are stylish and showing strong manners is something not every gentleman knows.

Passion for gold, basketball, rugby or badminton just stopped to a certain extent. But there are some sports that just mention the name, others must also admire because of its elegance and style.

Let’s see what sports are they!

1. Fencing – A noble sport

To wear the Musketeer’s shirt is the dream of so many men. This sport requires not only health and agility, but also the sensitivity of thinking. Because if you calculate the wrong way, you will be defeated narrowly.

This sport may seem very dangerous on the outside but today thanks to the development of technology, in a walking suit with electronic circuits. If the swordsman hits the opponent, the machine will signal to calculate the score.

The swordsman is very strictly protected. They will be clad in thick protective clothing, gloves, boots and a full face helmet. Players use swords with blades, round swords with a diameter of 5-8mm should not cause injury.

2. Golf – A trendy sport

Each golf club with the right kind of premium, the lowest price must also be from several thousand dollars or more. Not to mention, but the costs related to the training ground, etc.

Compared to other sports, golf is considered a noble sport with the costs calculated in dollars. Golfing fee is divided into 3 types. For members, the fee ranges from 15-27 dollars per game. Member guests have to pay a higher price, about $ 60-80. Visitor fees are the highest, up to and below $ 100.

3. Tennis

Unlike badminton, tennis requires players to have a physical strength not only good but also durable. Playing tennis is a way to get more physically active and consume more energy than jogging, aerobics and cycling.

According to many scientific studies in the world, if practiced properly and properly, tennis will bring a lot of benefits.

Playing tennis requires tactical thinking and agility, so this is a sport that prolongs the life of the nervous system, while helping people develop their brains. In particular, tennis is the leading sport in the ability to develop optimistic and healthy personality for people.

The Most Powerful Sports Agents 2019: Football’s Jonathan Barnett Takes Over At No. 1

The Most Powerful Sports Agents 2019: Football’s Jonathan Barnett Takes Over At No. 1


Cash has been flying across the football world this year, with the summer transfer featuring a €126 million deal for a player who had not yet turned 20: João Félix, now with Atlético Madrid. With all the money sloshing around, it should come as no big surprise that football players captured the top 3 spots on Forbes’ list of the world’s highest-paid athletes.

It should not be especially surprising, either, that the world’s most powerful sports agent now comes out of football.

Having negotiated more than $1.28 billion in active contracts and transfers fees, with his maximum possible commissions exceeding $128 million, Jonathan Barnett climbs to No. 1 on Forbes’ list, from No. 3 last year.

Barnett, co-founder, and chairman of the London-based Stellar Group, has represented some of Europe’s top football players for more than two decades and also played an instrumental role in bringing cricket to South Africa after the end of Apartheid. Barnett oversees Stellar’s list of more than 200 clients and has negotiated some of the biggest deals in football, including Welsh winger Gareth Bale’s massive $33 million-a-year contract with Real Madrid and Atlético Madrid’s $100 million-plus deal with Saúl Ñíguez.

Barnett isn’t the only one that has a great year, either. The 50 members of Forbes’ list of the most powerful sports agents in the world had negotiated above $37.5 billion in active player contracts, that nets $1.75 billion in maximum possible commissions, as of our cutoff in August. Those numbers are up from $33.4 billion and $1.6 billion last year.

Falling behind Barnett in the list is baseball agent Scott Boras. No sports agent in history has negotiated bigger deals than Boras, who manages an astounding $2.38 billion in active contracts, the highest total ever for a single agent. Boras’ namesake agency, Boras Corporation, is due about $119 million in maximum possible commissions.

Why Men Should Practice Yoga Regularly

Contrary to weight training, yoga is a sport that seems to attract female participation. It includes special movements to help muscles become elastic and supple, in addition to helping the brain exercise effectively. Perhaps because there are not many vigorous movements like other sports, men often do not choose to pursue yoga. However, unlike what we usually think, yoga makes you use almost all the muscles in the body, sometimes yoga will be much more tired than weight training.
