Slackers

Slacklining is the latest fitness craze. It’s like tightrope walking, but on a strong, flat piece of webbed plastic typically attached between two trees. Slacklines are less taught than a tightrope, and that extra give lets users put a little bounce in their step along the way. The Slackers slackline from Brand 44 Colorado in Denver helps build core strength and balance, is easy to learn and fun for the whole family. Brand 44 Colorado’s Classic Series Kit comes with 50 feet of 2-inch webbing and ratchet, 50 feet of a 1-inch teaching line (placed above you to hold onto until you get the hang of it) and ratchet, and a Slackers carrying bag. The company also sells a Tree Huggerz kit to protect trees from the abrasion of the attached slackline or the ziplines it sells. To join the fitness fun, visit www.slackersline.com.
