    3. long distance swimming

    8. rock climbing
    9. mountain climbing
    10. bicycle riding and
    11. racing bikes and/or
    12. Grand Prix.
HALs are intended for four classes of people, those who are:
  • disabled in some way: So, are limited from behaving as they feel is, or should be, normal for them
  • are normal but wish to have more muscular strength to accomplish more or better than can be done with reasonable exercise and diet, or are limited by loss of strength from age or
  • need protection from accidents, attacks or dangers from normal, or more risky, athletic activities or
  • any combination of the above.
