No idea about my BMI tbh. I've had such test done when i was in the sports academy, but this is long ago and i don't even remember what the figures were.
Around here you could ask 1000 ppl on the street and perhaps the few bodybuilders would know their BMI, it's not smth that one would do just by curiosity.
I started playing in 1991, May 7th my 14th birthday, my parents gave me a racquet as a present and i got hooked immediately.
I was training football at the time and the club was separated like half football, half tennis (like most neighborhood clubs in Geneva. All have pitches like our Pro League teams here, with training fields, light, everything).
It had 6 courts, 3 of them were covered in the winter.
I started playing at the building we were living in, the back yard had a small football pitch, which was like gravel or smth, i was playing on the wall and the ball was bouncing in every direction from the gravel, but it was too much fun anyway, just loved it.
Then went to the club's wall and step by step i got 3 other guys from the football team hooked on tennis, so after just a month or smth we were 4 guys, very passionate about tennis already, playing like 50 hours a week at the club.
We were playing also with other guys, older dudes who gave us some technical hints, but barely ever took any real trainings, until we were noticed by the guys in the club and they decided to make a juniors team for the interclubs, so we had like 5-6 lessons with a coach and then started playing the team league, parallel with our men team.
After 1 year, after i started beating some of the men's team players at the domestic annual tournament i was taken for the men team, 3rd racquet.
It was an awesome time, it was exciting, competitions, all week tennis, improving all the time, choking a lot of matches (i was struggling with my overhead like a mofo, i lost a match from 6-2 4-2 by not making one overhead till the end and lost 6-2 5-7 2-6 against a guy with much greater ranking, which could have boosted my points, but..
), lunches were on the host team, so both teams sat on a big table and socialized as well, it was a very pleasant time.
My fav poster here....really hard to say, perhaps a few guys, Leng Jay is fun, we have a love/hate relationship with Motorhead going
, Johnny Groove i like, Mr.Oracle, the Brazilian lad with Arthur.br was it, but i probably miss some. I liked Henry Chinaski a lot, may he rest in peace.
I read that you are working as sales guy, what do you cell? If it is not a problem you can say the name of the company, maybe I will know it
It's a small company of 10 people, it's friend of mine's, we represent foreign machinery producers and manufacture the auxiliary equipment ourselves, it's in the food industry field, weighing, packing and quality control machinery, it's pretty much impossible anyone knows it, except the production managers of bigger food producers overall
