You don’t need to be an Olympic athlete to play a sport. Sports activity relieves tension, allows you to stay in shape, and rejuvenates your body. Putting aside the statistics that illustrate with graphs and charts the benefits, we are sure that you will agree with us: the feeling you get after swimming for a few kilometers is priceless.
Sport allows our brain to release endorphins, analgesic substances with strong exciting power. It also has a social dimension, if practiced with friends, and particularly goliardic in that kind of sport, such as football, where the highly caloric dinner following the game will inevitably be offered to those who have had the worst on the field. Someone has met the soul mate in the gym, others still do team building sessions on climbing walls: sport is for everyone, just choose your favorite!
There are those who choose to spend their summer holidays in Zermatt or Les Deux Alpes in order not to renounce crossing the slopes with skis on their feet, those who ride even when the temperatures are polar, risk finding the road blocked by a penguin: sports are addictive and in recent years the Milanese have become increasingly addicted as well.
Whether you have practiced a discipline forever, or if you have entered this world recently, you will know that equipment is essential. Sports shops certainly are not lacking in Milan: we intend to show you the best, combining practicality and style, cutting-edge technologies and comfort. Because we are still in the fashion capital your sportswear will certainly have to be functional, but the eye still has an influence.
Accompanying the beautiful days, dust off your bicycle (and don’t forget to wear a helmet!), Check the stringing of your tennis racket and go out to burn some energy! But first, don’t forget to visit these 10 addresses!
Via Melzo, 36
There is more and more hype around the urban biking world, and offices are gradually filling up with Brompton bikes.

To accessorize and make the journey even smarter, the address is One-Off Store: a selection of brands based on innovation and functionality, with great attention to aesthetics. When you think of an essential item for your travels, the advice is to lengthen the way to via Melzo: Brooks England backpacks and messengers, Douchebags, 24Bottles water bottles and much more await you. Another piece of advice we want to give you is this: be safe, use a helmet (One-Off Store proposes POC and Carrera, light and design).

In via Melzo you will find specialized assistance, the possibility to rent a bicycle, a workshop supplied with the main spare parts, and endless possibilities for customization.

They say that the dance begins where the word ends: it is a form of artistic expression, and the hovering of the dancers on the tips of their toes has inspired writers, painters and poets.
