Tall Living: Office Space

February 9th, 2017

Tall Living Desk

 

Tall people know how hard it is to find office furniture with the right proportions. Either your desk is too short and your knees are barely, if at all, fitting under the desk. Or you’re stuck with a short chair that leaves your hips resting below your knees. This can lead to flexion of the spine, and lower back pain.

 

Tall Living Office Space Desk Riser

 

Here are a few solutions. You don’t have to suffer long hours at work cramped up in a standard sized chair at an average desk. One way to fix this is to get desk leg risers. Desk leg risers can come is all shapes and sizes. They simply go underneath each leg of your desk, to give you that extra bit of height that you might need. Another solution is to get a desk top riser, which elevates your computer screen and keyboard so you don’t have to hunch over your desk to get your work done.

Another solution to discomfort in your office is getting a chair that is tall enough. Tall desk chairs allow you to sit at your desired height, and has plenty of back support.

Gone are the days of using cinder blocks and books to raise your desk up!

Lifestyle: The Heights The NFL Goes To

February 2nd, 2017

patriots blog

 

With Super Bowl Championship Number 51 right around the corner the New England Patriots football legacy has never been brighter. Patriots Nation is gearing up for the ultimate season end.  As a Massachusetts based company, naturally TEAL Apparel is cheering the Patriots to a win.

Tall athletes are usually associated with basketball, rowing and volleyball.  But, we thought it would be interesting to look into tall people of the NFL (National Football League). The average height range for an NFL player is between 5’11” and 6’6”.   We were surprised to find that last year the Patriots had the lowest average height in the entire league, roughly 6’1. The tallest player on the team, Sebastian Vollmer, is a towering 6’8. Clearly height isn’t a determining factor in football greatness.

 

Here is a list of the tallest men who played in the NFL:

 

Richard Sligh

Richard Sligh, 7’0”, is the tallest NFL football player. He played defensive tackle for the Oakland Raiders back in 1967. He is the tallest pro football player in history.



NFL richard

Terell Brown

Terell Brown, at 6’10”, plays for the St. Louis Rams offensive tackle. He is tied for height with Kansas City Chiefs, Morris Stroud.

Morris Stroud

Morris Stroud, also 6’10”, played for the Kansas City Chiefs in the 1970’s. He was a Tight End for the Chiefs, and was considered the tallest pro NFL player at that time.

 

NFL Morris

 

 Ed “Too Tall” Jones

Ed “Too Tall” Jones, 6’9”, has it right in his name, too tall. He played for 15 seasons with the Dallas Cowboys.

King Dunlap

King Dunlap who is also 6’9” plays offensive tackle for the San Diego Chargers.

Good luck to both the Patriots and the Falcons. We will be watching!

Adventures: Six Tips for Traveling Tall

January 26th, 2017

 Tall airline 2

 

 

We’re  sure everyone has been on a flight where their legs just get cramped up, now imagine that feeling being 6’ or taller. Tall men and women are never remotely comfortable on flights.

The standard for legroom in the United States is a total of 31 inches and is commonly used by most airlines. When taking into consideration a person of a taller height, 31 inches is barely enough room for the tall flier and an awkward space to comfortably fit longer legs. One can obviously have a better experience by upgrading your seat for extra money, but airlines should do more to accommodate passengers of all sizes.

1. To enhance your flying experience pick a carrier with more leg space.

 

Top three United States airlines with the most leg room:

  • JetBlue: 33 to 34 inches
  • Virgin America: 32 inches
  • Southwest: 32 to 33 inches

Airlines only have a weight standard, claiming that the average passenger weighs about 190 pounds, but there is no average for height. So here are five helpful tips for tall people on how to get a little more comfort on your next flight.

2. Book Your Flight in Advance

By booking in advance, it gives you more seating choices. You’ll have a better chance of getting an “extra leg room” seat, though you might have to pay a little extra. If you can’t pick your seat, try flying at “non-peak hours”. This way, you have a better chance of having an emptier flight, which means you might get a few open seats next to you to stretch out.

3. Arrive Early To The Gate

By arriving early, you can ask the person who is checking you in if there are any emergency exit seats available. Emergency exit rows have more room in case of an emergency. If your height doesn’t tip them off, be polite and express how much discomfort you’ll be in, generally the person checking you in will take pitty on you and help out or even upgrade you to an emergency exit seat with no extra charge. If you cannot get an emergency exit seat, go for the row behind the emergency exit row. This is because the emergency exit seats do not recline.

4. Get As Much Room As You Can

Don’t travel with anything under the seat in front of you. This will give you more room to stretch your legs under the seat. Also, try removing the magazines in the seat pocket. Though there is very limited leg room, getting every available centimeter of room will count.

5. Get Up And Stretch

Stretching can really benefit you, especially on long flights. When the seatbelt light is off, feel free to walk up and down the aisles. Or even on some Jet Blue flights, you can congregate in the back of the plane right in front of the flight attendant’s section.

6. Distractions

If all else fails, just sit back, relax as much as you can, and enjoy your flight. Pick a movie to watch, or get a good book before you take off. Try and get you mind off the discomfort as much as you can.

Health: Eat Up

January 25th, 2017

Robert 1

 

Are you consuming enough? 

We recently read about a 7’7, 16 year old basketball player whose goal is to eat 4,000 calories a day.  While the average person is trying to maintain or even lower their daily intake of 2,500 calories, 4,000 calories seems like a ludicrous quantity. But, based on calorie counters this is actually a good daily goal to maintain weight for someone 7’7.  One of the lesser known challenges of being tall is adequate nutrition and hydration. 

In order to ensure you’re eating and hydrating enough use an online calculator. We used this Calorie Counter Calculator to validate the 4,000 calorie per day diet that Robert sticks to: 

http://www.calculator.net/calorie-calculator.html

We also went a step further to look at hydration. The typical recommendation of 8 cups of water per day does not work for someone 7’7.  Based on height, weight, activity level and climate, Robert  should drink 19 cups of water per day.  

http://www.h4hinitiative.com/tools/hydration-calculator

The standard quantities and recommendations do not apply to tall people. Figure out what you need to eat and drink so that you can really Live Tall!

 


 

Robert 2

 

At just Sixteen years old, Robert Bobroczky is taller than any current basketball player in the NBA right now. Robert is originally from Romania but has moved to the United States to pursue his dream in basketball. He is currently a freshman on the varsity team at Spire Institute in Geneva, Ohio and recently had his first debut on the court. Robert is at a current height of 7-foot-7 and is expected to grow even taller!

Off the court, Robert is a dedicated student and is fluent in four different languages. (English, Hungarian, Romanian, and Italian) He carries an impressive 4.0 grade point average and enjoys playing the piano in his free time.

Robert is still developing and is putting focus on making his body stronger and better. He is bulking up and hopes to gain at least 30 pounds by the end of the season. Bobroczky has great potential and continues to work on improving his game every day. There are no guarantees but if he continues to grow and improve his skills, he may be able to fulfil his dream of playing in the NBA one day!

Our Intern: Sarah Ingram

July 20th, 2016

 

sarah behind scenes 

 Sarah Ingram, Dexter Southfield, Graduate

 

Sarah on what she learned  

Thoughts on being an intern?

Being an intern has the notorious reputation of being the person who is just there to make coffee runs and stay out of the way, but working at TEAL was a completely different experience. I got hands on experience in learning how a small business runs and how the CEO must be able to run all aspects of the company. 
 

What did you expect?

Never being an intern before, I really had no idea what to expect. Due to the short time of the internship, however, I was nervous that I wouldn’t learn anything substantial and would adjust to a new environment just to leave. But I was completely wrong, because I felt at home immediately and found the two weeks extremely productive. 
 

Best part of the internship?

The best part of the internship was being able to experience the marketing side of fashion, something I have never been introduced to before in my life. I also got to watch Jenni pitch her company to a possible buyer, helping me learn how necessary it is to be able to eloquently sell your idea or company. 
 

What surprised you the most?

I was surprised most by how much fun I had doing the photoshoots, but also how much unseen work and effort goes into getting good photos for a website or catalog.

I had the unique pleasure of meeting and working with Sarah this past Spring. She came to us as a Dexter Southfield High School senior and spent 2 weeks doing a little bit of everything: coordinating photoshoots, finding models, photographing and videoing TEAL’s products and capturing her vision for the brand as well as joining a sales pitch to a buyer and preparing materials for fulfillment. Sarah models grace under pressure and contributed commitment, passion and new ideas! Thank you and good luck at George Washington University this Fall.
