Trade in your used Decathlon Skates

Trade in your Decathlon Skates

Start Rolling Better and Faster

Decathlon is a great place to buy cheap inline skates that are of relatively good quality. Many buying skates for the first time will try out the sport with a pair of skates from Decathlon. 

Your Appetite for Speed will Increase

After skating a while on your Decathlon skates, you will start to realize its limitations. The most glaring problem is the roll time on the skates. Skaters on the road are swooshing past you with minimal effort. You try your very best to skate faster but no matter how hard you push, the skater in front of you just keeps getting further away.

You Need More Ankle Support

Trying to skate faster also reveals another glaring problem. Your feet in the skates keep slipping towards the outer sides. You always feel like the skates are caving outwards. This is evident when you are learning new tricks that your friends are working on too. 

You keep hearing Upgrade Upgrade Upgrade

Corporate Health and Wellness thru Inline Skating

Companies realize that corporate health and wellness is a must in today's workforce

There are definitely more companies and organisations incorporating wellness programmes into their budget to engage and increase productivity in employees.

In a survey done, by 2024, the Asia-Pacific region can expect a corporate wellness market worth US$7.4 billion. That is staggering compared to 10 years ago where employee are responsible for their own wellness 

Separately, studies have shown that companies and organisation not participating or invest little into corporate wellness across the territories of Southeast Asia including Singapore, had productivity losses totaling US$44.6 billion within a financial year.

Corporate health and wellness is starting to grow in presence in our workplace cultures and strategies. It is well documented that a happier work team allows better productivity and helps with retaining employees.

It also helps to attract new employee as corporate health and wellness is seen as an important intrinsic benefit.

On the contrary, companies that do not provide corporate health and wellness programmes are losing their precious workforce to its competitors and worst, a disgruntled workforce.

We have heard too many times that companies and organisations are too busy, or have a lack of budget to even start any sort of corporate health and wellness programme. In actual fact, the benefits are clear and making it happen should be a priority for any HR department.
