WARM UP Extreme Sports
he Greek islands are widely recognised as some of the most picturesque BASE jumping locations in the world. With a stunning range of mountains,
cliffs and coves, the scenery is far removed from the urban cityscapes that make up most of the dramatic images that non-BASE jumpers often associate with the sport. Dont be fooled by the tranquil setting however; the pursuit is no less dangerous than when jumping from a skyscraper. In fact, opening a parachute close to a cliff or mountainside is an extremely risky business as your ties can get caught and your silk can get snagged with fatal consequences. But for BASE aficionados, this just makes the thrill even greater.

Welcome to the first edition of Perfect Fit in 2016. January is a very special month because
many people decide to undertake a new fitness regime or a diet plan. You may have noticed that your gym was unusually crowded for the past couple of weeks but worry not it will not last for long.
Statistics show that most people give up on their New Year's resolutions around January 10, which is only nine days after they were made! By the end of the month, three out of four people will forget about the short-lived desire to change their lifestyle, and only eight percent will eventually achieve their goals.
If you aspire to be among the very few people that do succeed, you should check out Perfect Fit's website (www.perfectfitmagazine.com) where we have published some exclusive online articles written to help you stick to your New Year's resolutions.
