Juggling, the skill of keeping several objects in the air by continuously throwing and catching them, is a popular hobby in many parts of the world. Although it requires a bit of practice, juggling is fairly easy to learn. As well as being a fun hobby, juggling has other benefits. These include being a gentle form of exercise and improving hand eye co-ordination. There is even some research that suggests the mental effort involved in juggling can increase brain power.
An increasingly sedentary lifestyle, especially in the western world, has been linked to a number of health problems including Cardiovascular Diseases and Type 2 Diabetes. A charity concerned about inactive lifestyles wants to promote a number of hobbies that will keep people active and away from their computer and television screens. Because it is an easy and fun way for people to become active, one of the hobbies they see as being potentially beneficial is juggling. The charity has approached you to design and build a website that will encourage people to take up juggling as a hobby.
