Instructional exercise and motivational posters, posted in a place where they can be easily seen every day, can provide a powerful visual reminder of fitness and weight loss goals, and empower those looking to get fit to stick to their new workout routine.

“January is our busiest time of the year,” says Neil Flagg, President of The Sports Poster Warehouse. “With all the New Year’s resolutions, everyone is hitting the gym or hopping back on the treadmill in an effort to get into shape and focus on wellness. Our posters can help motivate, instruct and inspire those workouts.”

For Stefanie De Rossi, a Toronto fitness trainer, exercise instructional posters help remind her clients of the safe and proper way to perform an exercise, as well as encourage them to try it on their own in between training sessions. “A gym fitness poster can be your “personal trainer on the wall,” for clients who are planning their own workouts, or don’t have a trainer with them that day,” says De Rossi. “They are a powerful reminder to help you stay on track and motivated in your fitness routine.”

NHL Poster Sales Down 40 Percent During Lockout

NHL Poster Sales Down 40 Percent During Lockout

Hockey fans show their work stoppage displeasure with a strike of their own

Toronto, Ontario, January 7, 2012 – SportsPosterWarehouse.com (SPW), a leading online destination for sports posters and pennants, revealed today that NHL poster and pennant sales were down 40 percent for Q4 2012. This downward trend reveals that hockey fans staged a strike of their own, choosing to no longer purchase NHL related products during the lockout that will effectively end this month.

“Generally, professional hockey hero and NHL team posters are scarcely available in most American sporting goods stores. Thus, for many years, SPW has been a popular destination for NHL lovers. During the lockout, not even Sidney Crosby himself is selling well,” explains Neil Flagg, President of SportsPosterWarehouse.com.

The high period for a sports poster sales is during its respective season play. However, despite the fact that the NHL season is expected to begin in January, SPW forecasts that fan interest in NHL product sales will pick up somewhat, but wont fully rebound, in part due to lingering fan dissatisfaction with the work stoppage.

Unexpected Top-10 Seller – Babe Ruth With Kids Poster (1924)

August 6, 2010

Now this is what The Babe was all about! Somewhat surprisingly, this has been one of our top-sellers of Summer 2010 – but knowing what we know about the great Babe Ruth, it’s suddenly quite understandable.

Babe Ruth (click here to view our entire Babe Ruth Collection) has always been a National icon and even now, 62 years after his death he is one of the most well know athletes to ever play any sport. The Bambino had a habit of hitting home runs like no one else who came before him, totaling 714 in a 21-year career.

But The Babe was known for more than just his on field prowess. After having a very hard childhood of his own, Ruth was always the first to be there for the kids. During the First World War when times were very tough, Ruth went out and bought a whole bunch of shoes and started to give them out to children in the streets of New York City.  Ruth was also known far and wide for never turning down a single child when they asked him for an autograph, sometimes spending hours after a game signing balls and cards.

What’s even more amazing than signing autographs for hours after a game is that the Babe was known to on many occasions to go out and play some sandlot ball with the kids.  That is just something you don’t see today, imagine seeing A-Rod out playing a game of ball with the local kids…

Babe Ruth was a great player, great role model and even better person, the game has always been at a loss without him.

Tour de France Final Stage Posters – Champs-Élysées, Paris

July 22, 2010

With so much beauty to be seen during the Tour de France, it is no wonder that Graham Watson, one of the most revered cycling photographers, has become so popular. His images are timeless and capture the moment like no other. Through the years his images have captivated many, and his photos of the final stage are no different.

Since 1975 the Tour de France has had its final stage run through prestigious Northwest Paris. Longjumeau to Champs-Élysées is a 102.5km stage, which starts in Essonne, a town 20km outside of Paris, and ends in North-western Paris.  At this distance it will be the shortest stage of the Tour. Not since 1989 has there been a shorter stage.

While the distance may be less, the scenery and excitement is not. Starting in a small town of only 20,000 people the racers will make their way down the N20, through endless fields and crops. After a hilly 45 km ride, they will make their way into Paris, which will be relatively flat for the final sprint.  While riding down Champs- Élysées, the tour will pass right through the shadow of one of the most famous landmarks on the planet, the Eiffel Tower. The race ends in spectacular fashion are racers barrel towards  Arc de Triomphe.
